With my ongoing adventure of getting myself to develop on my MacBook instead of my Windows machine, I was now trying to checkout the source code which I had checked in on Google. Since MonoDevelop was not working along I had to find another solution.
It appears that SVN is available via the terminal but like any lazy user I want a GUI. The Windows world is blessed with TortoiseSVN and there is a similar program for the Mac called SCPlugin. It integrates the SVN commands in the Finder but for some reason it just doesn’t want to download code hosted by Google. So for now I use SmartSVN , it’s pretty easy to use.
While delving through the Monodevelop bug tracking pages, one submitter stated that while the control + click combination didn’t work to get the appropriate context menu you could work around it by using a two button mouse. Why didn’t I think of that? I plugged the mouse of my other laptop in and boom, I had context menus in Monodevelop. Technology of two competitors working together ;).
I took the picture with my iPhone and was able to convert it with iPhoto. One shortcoming however was that when you export a photo it allows you to change the size to small, medium, large and full size. I was missing the size in pixels here, the only way to find out what the program does is to do the export and look at the new file.
The new thumbnail now had to move to the blog, so where’s the ftp program? Well there isn’t, you can connect Finder to an ftp server but that only allows one way traffic. I could have used the terminal and start ftp from the command prompt but who wants to use that. On the Apple site I found a link to Transmit which has an idiot proof interface, perfect for me.
