EventSync from fbevents.net is a great app to sync OSX iCal with Facebook. However, if you ever do something to your calendar and EventSync is no longer updating your calendar then do the following from a terminal.

rm -r "~/Library/Application Support/SyncServices/Local/clientdata/com.llsoftware.fbevents"

  • not spend too much

I recently got one of the new mac mini's because it can finally run dual monitors. Yay Apple. Anyhow, this Time Machine thing sounded pretty cool so I kept trying to figure out how to get it to backup to my network drive but nothing seemed to work.
