Tired of moving back and forth between user accounts just because you need a file from a second or third dropbox account? Sure you can use the web version but with three or more accounts, even that becomes tiresome.
Yeah, I could not think of a better name, but hey, it’s the thought that counts.
Do you want to know how to get more than one Dropbox account in sync on the same user, no switching, no web-apps, just functional? then read on.

Netflix in Europe ain’t bad, but there are a lot of series not available in Europe. One of my favorites is Battlestar Galactica. I have them all at home, but not on the road. And while staying in some cheap-ass hotel for a night with nothing good on TV, I need some options :)
Getting Netflix to play US content on your computer is easy enough; use the Chrome extension MediaHint. How to play US content on Netflix app on your tablet or phone?

After upgrading OSX to version 10.9 I find myself investigating why my development server no longer works. After 4 upgrades I now have a clear list of things to check and how to fix.
If you have not yet upgraded OSX, take the time to back-up your /etc/php.ini and /etc/apache2/httpd.conf. Also; OSX 10.9 Mavericks will upgrade PHP to PHP 5.4, so if you have projects incompatible with 5.4; a) don’t upgrade OSX, b) start upgrading your code or c) use a different AMP-stack.
Also; if you depend on your computer for your income, don’t rush into this!
The TODO list:
- Backup your system
- Upgrade OSX
- Upgrade Xcode and run it at least once, installing the commandline tools
- Reboot your system
- Follow the checklist :)
The checklist (things to check and maybe fix):

Whoah, that was unexpected;
I just upgraded Xcode to 5.0 and now the – what used to be 1.6 – subversion on /usr/bin/svn is version 1.7. So…. My previous post about automatic version switching? Down the drain! :)
[UPDATE] This post is useless when you upgrade Xcode to version 5.0. If you use version 4 or you’re using a linux environment with svn 1.6 and 1.7 simultaneously; read on :) [/UPDATE]
So you have these projects in your development tree, these are probably managed by the version of Subversion as used on your mac – which with a very high probability would be version 1.6. But now and again, you might find yourself with a Subversion 1.7 project you received from someone else. Your mac will then shout something like this;
svn: The path '.' appears to be part of a Subversion 1.7 or greater
working copy. Please upgrade your Subversion client to use this
If – like me – you are NOT prepared to switch to SubVersioN 1.7 entirely, then read on :)

Ever had the need for an app of a website that just doesn’t exists? Like that site you visit very often but you also very often accidentally close while cleaning up those no-longer-needed tabs? Well, I do :) Tools like Harvest, Basecamp, TeamWeak, Google Calendar, Google Mail, I need them often. Sure there are options…

Recently I installed IOS7 Beta 1 on my iPhone 4 (3,1) 32 GB. Am I happy? well, a tiny bit, but not much, really. I’ll tell you why. But first; IOS7 takes a lot of time to get used to. It’s crisp, ultra sharp, takes the most out of the Retina display’s. I absolutely love it. It’s just … the color scheme, the flatness, it is all very very new and definitely stolen from Android. Sorry Apple, but it’s true, I cannot deny it. I do know, however, eventually we’ll love it.
Ready to read why I reverted to IOS6 while typing this post? Read on! :P

When you work with a group of people on the same projects, the larger the group gets, the more difficult the task of keeping everybody informed. So why not do this automatically? Send an e-mail upon an SVN commit. Here’s how I do it. Continue reading “Sending an email upon SVN-commit”
I spent hours and hours googling for this and the word “this” being a very common word made it impossible to find the answer.
The question was; how do I use the “this” context-object in my own callback function. It turns out it’s very simple, but the trick is, of course, to know the answer to know it’s simple.
Mountain Lion killed – or rather: disabled – sendmail by default. Big deal? well, if you need to send mail from PHP in your local development environment, you’ll need to perform these few steps to get it working again.
