I've made the switch...



  • I also switched a few months back and have a question:
    In the search window in the finder you can search for the contents of some files, e.g. a certain word in a bunch of word documents. But how can you make it do the same for source code/txt/php files? For instance if I want to search for a particular vanilla function for arguments sake and search the vanilla folder, it shows me nothing although I know it's there.
    Minisweeper, I've not tried it but I've read you can detach widgets from the dashboard with a trick and have them permanently on your desktop: here and here. macosxhints.com has lots of tipps on a regular basis. Also apple's own business tutorial videos sometimes have good tips, too.

    VMWare Fusion eh... new to me... need to check it out.... I only use Parallels to run IE6/7 and the odd keygen though :)
  • @mini:dashboard: check in you keyboard preference for the shortcut. Mine is F9, but I'm not sure if it's the default.

    @jakob:spotlight in code: see this hint. You can also add other code type.
  • mini, check out http://wafflesoftware.net/monocle/ for a way to search super-quick...
  • re: googling from the desktop minisweeper, this widget to desktop tool http://matthiasolson.com/?page_id=8 is supposed to make transferring desktop widgets to the desktop easier and is free too.

    mini, should you still be looking, another handy google à la spotlight from the menu bar:

    google buddy (via tuaw)

    EDIT: and, of course, Google Desktop.
  • I'm pretty pleased with monocle but cheers anyway :) I say I'm pretty pleased. What I mean is I WAS pretty pleased before I dropped a magnet on my hard drive last weekend and f*cked it up...
