    Swapping hard drives in an Xserve drive module

    I am aware of the fact that the G4 Xserve models use different drives from the G5 and Intel Xserves, whose drive modules are interchangeable. If I buy a used Xserve with small-capacity drive modules, what type of drive mechanism should I buy, in order to make an upgrade-swap? Likewise, what...

    Buggy E-flag in Tiger's rsync

    I just discovered the -E flag in Tiger's rsync, which is supposed to signal to rsync to preserve the "extended attributes," that is, the file attributes and the resource forks of files during synchronization operations.

    mount_webdav not playing nice

    This is sort of a blog of my struggle with mount_webdav. The purpose of making this work is to have a cron job that invokes rsync periodically and has it mirror a directory on my server to a remote WebDAV server (not a .Mac iDisk), to which I have write access. Setup: I have a file called...

    Using perhaps AppleScript I would like to have root quit a user's application, even if the user is logged in in the background. What I mean by being logged in in the background is that after logging in another user logs in through the "Fast User Switching" process without logging out the first...
