Firewire recording with a Motorola DCT6208

Hi guys, Thought I would just give an update in case anyone else is trying to do this. I got the recording to work on the 1 HD channel I tried (CBCHD). I only tried recording for about 10 or 15seconds but will try a 2 hour show today. I have to say it couldn't be easier for Mac users Once you download and install Firewire SDK26 run the AVCBrowser. The DCT6200 should show up. Press the Open Device Control - Panel.

how did I hide digital editions and Microsoft User Data

| | | | | | | |

I am attempting to recreate all of the little customizations that I have layered onto my MBP.

In the Documents folder, I had removed the unwelcome ‘Microsoft User Data’ and Digital Editions folders from the finder by hiding them…

Or, more accurately, in the case of the MUD folder; moved the folder to ~/Library/ and created an alias to the original.

retaining folder names as 'tags' for duplicate documents

| | | | | | | | | | |

I have a large PDF collection - and several applications that claim to help me 'manage' my PDFs.

Some are focused on being note-taking tools; some see judicious selection from your PDF collection as research fodder for the writing process (Scrivener, Selenium); others are interested in organizing and mobilizing reference metadata for citation while writing papers (Reference Manager, RefWorks, EndNote); others have only added file management to robust citation management (Sente, EndNote) or vice-versa (Zotero).

And then there's Papers. Hands down the best document + metadata search, retrieval & article management app for the mac.

Note to self: Neatreceipts method

|

Launch.
Got to Receipts tab.
Select receipt folder (by year & currency).

Sort by Vendor.
Check that all categories for each Vendor have only minimal expected variance. (e.g. sometimes drugstore, sometimes groceries...)

Note if any vendors (particularly restaurants) have mutiple receipts with amounts varying by less than 20% on a given day (where one was a cash receipt and the other was a credit card).
Copy the tax/pst/gst ammounts from cash to credit receipt.
Select cash receipt (holding down CTRL) and select credit receipt (so black arrow is pointing to credit receipt).

Tag Folders (or maybe just smart folders) broken after 10.6.1 upgrade

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |

No Smart Folders made by Tag Folders show any contents, even after "successfully" tagging files. Using other means, verified that OpenMeta Tags are attached: TagFolders' Smart Folders just aren't showing any contents.

The upshot is; I can get the TF Smart Folders to function, but my fix occasionally causes the Tag.app they belong to stop working. For details, read on...

Hard to clean spots, No. 8: My Work folder

|

My Work folder is for the documents that I (or any collaborators) produce for specific projects. The important organizational idea here is just identifying the area of my life to which these documents chiefly pertain.

This used to be a lot worse than it is now. On its way now, but there are still some big question marks.

Mindful Media Management. Work Folder

As mentioned in a previous post, you find my Work folder in ~User/Documents. Inside, my Work folder is broadly segregated into context areas: AS, clients, education, GRS, employment, projects, MRB.

Updating to DockSpaces 2.45 breaks FlowSpaces PLIST hacks

| | | | |

My FlowSpaces project has relied to date on DockSpaces 2.1, which has a number of warts. Since I am not shy about sharing both the ups and downs of technology, this post discusses the pros and cons of DockSpaces and my recent attempts to update to its most recent version in context of the FlowSpaces project objectives.

So what's wrong with the old DockSpaces? First, it only allows Spaces integration (Dock/Space bindings) with the first 4 spaces.

FlowSpaces. DockSpaces 2.1 Preferences. Spaces Integration Message

FlowSpaces. DockSpaces 2.1 Preferences. Spaces

What 'Spaces Integration' means is that when switching to any one of the first 4 spaces, the right dock will load automatically.
