    Undeletable files with strange names

    Thank you both for your suggestions. But the stuffit solution has this problem: even if I stuff it, I will have the original copy left, and the sudo rm bit I have alread tried. rm, mv, ls, none of them can work with the file. The message I get is this: rm: cannot lstat `temporary/<ugly...

    Undeletable files with strange names

    Hello, I have an annoying problem. I have a file with strange characters in the filename that can't be deleted. When I downloaded files from an ftp-server whose names contained characters like å, ä, ö (common in Sweden). Now all files containing such a character got a strange name (which is...

    Opensource vs. Safari

    So Apple has released a web browser. And a fast one. Great. And it's opensource? Great! But wait a second. Something seems not really right here. Aha. Safari is NOT open source. But two of the frameworks it links to are... that's nice. But not that nice. Both WebCore and JavaScriptCore are...

    HELP: I have no idea how to compile!

    You could start with Python or Java. The Python download is not so big, and I think you have Java on your system without the devtools. Check for Python. BBEdit can't compile, it can only edit files. yours, Theo

    HD partition as home folder

    The problem with the LABEL thing is that the disks still show up in finder and under /Volumes. It is very irritating... I want my other partitions to be invisible... This is my setup: Three partitions of the same disk - 5Gb partition for / (the base system) - 10Gb partition for...

    Sorting an NSOutlineView?

    it would be the same (the first line). if that doesn't work, I suggest looking at the documentation for NSOutlineView, at the bottom, there all the notifications and delegate methods should be listed. theo

    Try creating a BufferedImage with TYPE_INT_RGBA (or is it ARGB?) in Java for Mac OS X. You get an exception, but not any exception, this exception has a message: "Finalize this". That is how good Java 1.3.1 is in Mac OS X. But graphics are fast. Very fast in some cases. I wouldn't expect...
