Once you have experience (or not) with some uX system, at some point you have to deal with environment variables, especially if you intend to do some development. I used to come from Open Source uX systems, and some old ones like HPUX, AIX, Solaris. When I switched to OS X, which is to some extent BSD - I had to find the best way to deal with env. variables. So - here are the ones that I use

Often I am facing one and the same issue - deleting backup folder of Picasa. There are usually lots of rotated images or movies. So usually this is the first place to search for free space. Here is one very short way to delete these subdirectories: cd ~/Pictures find . -iname '.picasaoriginals' -exec rm -rf '{}' \; This will remove all subdirectories from your “Pictures” folder that have name .

It happened, that when I upgraded to Lion, for some reason Preview stopped working. This was new to me - usually I don’t expect such behavior under Mac OS. Seems that lots of people had this, especially the ones that have upgraded MBP with SDD and having HDD at the place of Optical Drive. In this case you make SymLinks in your home directory pointing to HHD for Downloads (for Photos, Music, Movies or anything that you can afford to play from slow media and takes more space, which is expensive on SSD).

Today I have tried to connect to my company’s VPN. Few days ago I have already upgraded my Snow Leopard with Mac OSX Lion. When trying to start RSA SecurID to obtain my token, the application responded with: “Error loading the application. Contact your administrator.” When trying to search for solution, I found this post in Apple support forums: https://discussions.apple.com/message/15741858#15741858 There some guy from RSA says that they know about the issue and are working to fix it for next version, which will be available in September.

This is post for Mac fans - everyone else should leave know. I used to love dark themes when working in Linux desktop. Even on Windows I used to set a dark theme, so that it doesn’t bother my eyes. Something that I love for Gnome and Kde desktops is customization - you can make your UI look the way you want, the way you like it. Most of the time, I used to set my Linux desktop to look like Mac :-P, but this is something else to be discussed.
