Via Blogdex as usual… This one being especially for Mike… Amazonster. An interesting social-networking idea for sure. Opt in/out mentality to go along w/ this of course. How public do you want you buying habits/history and some of that peripheral data. Not that it isn’t already all in there and (to a certain extent) accessible. […]

osx2x (3).

by Rob Friesel

The third installment of this rivetting series! After about a week or so of using these VNC-wares, I think I’ve got the knack and am pretty set with them and am ready to write up my report. osx2x-to-WinVNC: The first one I got going. And the one that seems to work best. On Detonator-3, WinVNC […]

Per Mike’s request, here are the gratuitous screenshots of my desktops for all to see… First up: Detonator-3: …as you can see, pretty sparse. Next up: KetelOne: What’s on my Dock?

I’m sure the “real” prints carry a lot more weight than these digital reproductions — but they’re all pretty damn neat. Especially if you (like me) […]

osx2x (2).

by Rob Friesel

So… osx2x on KetelOne and VNC on Detonator-3 later and we have success! The reverse of what I was originally going for… But just the same it’s a huge leap. The weirdest part so far is cmd+C’ing everything on KetelOne and then trying to remember that I still need to ctrl+C stuff on D-3. Paradigm […]

Glossed over it on Tao of Mac but returned to reading up on osx2x after a co-worker randomly chatted me in the middle of the day to ask if I’d heard of it. At first my wires crossed on it and i was like is that some alt x-window mgr or s/thing? not so much… […]
