    Twitter App multiple windows like TweetDeck 

    I don’t like TweetDeck. Or any of the other Twitter-like apps.
    I work daily off a gen2 MacBook Air and need every bit of RAM and CPU cycles I can get.

    Instead, I’ve used the official Twitter app for Mac since it launched.
    Its quiet, stable and fast.

    Then not long ago I stumbled upon a way to use it in a way similar to TweetDeck (et al).

    Here’s a screen shot of my main feed (left) along side a feed from my hockey list (right).

    With it, I can break lists and searches out into as many windows as I want.

    Just load the list in the main app, then go to the Dock icon and right (apple) click. Select ‘open in a new window’ and out it goes.

    A simple little hack, but one I use daily now.

    Turns out, running Windows XP via Parallels through a USB stick is terribly slow.

    Mini display port to DVI (or how to get a Mac working witg a non-Mac monitor like Dell) 

    As owner of a life-changing macbook air for over 8 months now, one of the issues I’ve had in the past was connecting to an external monitor.

    Back in January, I went searching for a mini-display port to DVI converter but came up empty.

    Today, while browsing at the Apple store, I found one.

    But as it turns out, they keep them in the back and not on the shelves for the public to see.

    And I can’t think if any other reason for this than they don’t want people really knowing that a $200 Dell monitor is a good enough replacement for a $1000 Apple display.
