    A Developer already released Virtual Desktops!

    One of the benefits to open source that I never anticipated is that you can depend on other people to police your license. The rhetoric on versiontracker can be overheated but I'm afraid they have a point in this case: Virtual Desktops appears to have misappropriated code from I...

    Need to reset resolution -- from terminal!

    This weekend I picked up a bargain copy of "Railroad Tycoon II" and decided I would put it to the test in the Classic environment.

    Cocoa for Cash -- What do you charge?

    I'm a salaried programmer considering some contract work programming for Mac OS X. Has anybody out there done this already? I'm trying to get a sense of what the going rate for this kind of work is. For reference, the "Computer Consultant's Guide" (Janet Ruhl) lists a median rate of $73...
