The night of no-clicking became the morning of no-clicking returned…

Posted by gryphn on December 1, 2015 in Technology |

Obviously it was not Little Snitch or at least not Little Snitch alone that cause the malady which befell my poor Mac.  The morning found it again without the ability to left click and sadness returned.  Fortunately I was able to reboot it and was able to get my mouse back to normal again.  I […]


The night of the no clicking…

Posted by gryphn on November 29, 2015 in Technology |

I was trying to do some surfing tonight after a reboot and some Little Snitch Updates.  Thing went horribly wrong and once my Mac Book restarted all I could do was right click and I could only right-click on things that had focus.  It was horrifying, and I think the only time I’ve ever wished […]


Working with SharePoint

Posted by gryphn on October 4, 2011 in Life, Technology |

After working with Linux and Unix for so long it’s been difficult to go back to the Windows world. It’s not that I’m anti-windows or anything, it’s just a different environment and not one that I adore. I’ve been trying to be fair to SharePoint and I don’t think that it’s necessarily a bad starting […]


Rockmelt on the Mac

Posted by gryphn on March 3, 2011 in Technology |

So I decided to say what the hell and signed up for the “Rockmelt” beta. I was intrigued by the video and thought it might be a good experiment.  Unfortunately, it really did not live up to my expectations. The interface is nice and the ability to add favorite friends and feeds is a nice […]


been coding and thought I’d throw some stuff out there.

Posted by gryphn on August 18, 2010 in code, Technology |

So I like making life easier and all that for myself when coding….  So I decided a while back to recreate some of the tags I used to have in happy ClodFusion land into PHP land.  Granted I’m sure they aren’t as pretty or nifty, but they work so I’m happy.  The first one I […]



soooooo… about that whole suspend thing…

Posted by gryphn on August 11, 2009 in Life, Technology |

I put my NetBook in suspend mode yesterday evening so I could take it home and finish some work on compiling.  Yeah now I remember why graphical logins suck fanny. The graphical login is broken and just keeps reloading and reloading and reloading and reloading… well you get the idea. Needless to say, I’m reformatting […]

Living in a linux desktop

Posted by gryphn on August 10, 2009 in Life, Technology |

So I’m getting along fairly well with my Netbook and while I understand that I’m not going to find ready made binaries and happy little plugins for everything I would like. I’m also  remembering what a pain some things can be when installing from source. My latest adventure has been installing Pidgin’s OTR plugin.  I […]


Linux, my NetBook and me

Posted by gryphn on August 7, 2009 in Life, Technology |

I’m at an impass. I’m pleased with the way my NetBook is working with OpenGEU an yet I’m frustrated at the same time.  This is the first time in a VERY VERY long time that I’ve used Linux for a desktop.  It’s really come a long way since then and it’s very usable.  The problem […]

NetBooks and Operating Systems

Posted by gryphn on August 4, 2009 in Life, Technology |

I was a copy-cat a few months ago and bought a NetBook.  I got the ASUS EeePC 901.  it has a solid state hard drive and it’s about the size of a large paperback.  I love it and it worked great for me when I went to a SANS training at the RSA Conference in […]


the cp command in linux

Posted by gryphn on December 16, 2008 in Miscellaneous, Technology |

I like Linux and I like apple and I even like windows for the most part.  Now in Windows you wouldn’t get a change to the base functionality of xcopy, but here in linux world I have exactly that in the cp command.  it’s always been easy to overwrite a whole slew of files at […]
