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"

Since it's been two years since my last raid cost analysis, I figured it was about time to do another one.

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.

Firefox is a fantastic web browser that blows the doors off of of Internet Explorer. Firefox is standards compliant, has tabs (and has had them from day one) and has lots more features plus it is much more secure.
