Manually Customize Mac Icons

I know that there are free and paid Mac applications that will change system icons but sometimes I am just too cheap to pay for an application that does what I can do in a few seconds or the application doesn’t do exactly what I want it to. So, in light of all of this I have created my own how to video and posted it to the web adding to the plethora of icon changing how to videos.

Browser Security

pwn2own_browsersI have been upset with Google for taking soo long to put out their Apple version of their Chrome browser. After reading an article on ZDNet about the Pawn2Own hacker event maybe I can give Google some slack. :-) I still want my Chrome ASAP if it is as good as the windows version though. Google seems to be heading in the right direction with their sandbox model for their browser. I am sad that Apple has done so little to create road blocks for hackers but I guess that is expected when you have such a low market share. Now go and read the article and make your own decision on what browser you are going to use. Questions for Pwn2Own hacker Charlie Miller

New Avatar in the works!

Cassie's IllustrationsCassie is an awesome artist and illustrator! She does some really fun art and I really enjoy having her art all over the place. A while ago Cas did some cartoon sketches of me and I really liked them so she is going to finish a couple so I can use them for my sites and Avatar on twitter and other places. It is going to be really nice once we can get them finished and implemented. If you would like to follow Cassie on twitter visit her page at http://twitter.com/illustrativecas

Twitter on my blog

jQueryI finally made enough time to put a twitter feed on my blog and man does it feel good to have that done. I found a fun jQuery based widget called Juitter that can be found at http://juitter.com/

I changed some of the functionality and the css in the jQuery functions so it would be a little more compacte and now it is looking great. Really easy to install but if you are wanting to customize it beyond how many tweets show up you are going to need a fair understanding of jQuery.
