Innovative Way To Archive Specific Dates In Mail

I was having a play around with Time Machine and Mail and I was wondering if there was any specific way to archive specific months of email. I know Time Machine backs up every single email address, however Time Machine isn’t that useful if you want to transfer or store these email addresses in another location. So I came up with this rather simple method, it takes a little bit of work, but by using smart folders you can actively back up and archive specific months of email.

Add A Second Menu Bar to Your Mac 2

Application

Add A Second Menu Bar to Your Mac

This is a rather cool, very new, app that allows you to put a second menu bar on a seconds screen. If you have ever used a second monitor you will notice that your main monitor contains your menu bar and any second screen is used as a dumping ground for windows. This is normally ok, but if you want a bit more productivity or if you have a lot of screen real estate it can take a long time time to access this menu bar on your original screen.

Getting Better Sounding Music Out Of ITunes 3

Tip

Getting Better Sounding Music Out Of ITunes

If you listen to music in iTunes (or any other music player) sometimes music can sound a bit flat or boring. It could be a problem of the music encoding but more than likely it is a problem due to the equaliser not having the optimal settings. This post was inspired by Richard who contacted me earlier in the week, using his suggestion for a post I am going to show you how to get the best sound possible.

Radium Menu Bar Radio Player + Competition

Today we have a cool app that I am going to review and to top it off we a have a small competition to give away a couple of the licenses for some lucky readers. If you haven’t guessed by the title, today’s app is Radium. It is a menu bar radio player which you use to listen to online radio streams. It is very, very simple to use and I got it working and listening to my radio station within thirty seconds. It doesn’t have any of the “fluff” that other applications have.

Opening Terminal Files In A Different App

I hope you all had a good weekend and Easter. Today’s post is going to be a small follow on to Saturday’s post on editing your Bash profile. One of the comments gave me an idea of allowing you to open the file in TextEdit and edit the file from there, rather than trying to use Terminals built in file editor. I am going to expand on this and show you how to open a file from Terminal so you can edit in a different app. This is useful since you don’t have to fight with Terminal’s text editors, especially if you have limited knowledge of the workings or don’t like to use them.

Create Your Own Custom Terminal Commands 4

Create Your Own Custom Terminal Commands

The title of this post is a little misleading, what we are going to do today is develop our own Bash command to work in Terminal to allow use to do simple, repetitive commands, with only a couple of keys. Think of they as macros, a simple and easy way to cut down time. This doesn’t take long and it can be powerful, and like anything in life it just takes a little bit of know how. This tutorial is great if you have a specific folder which you visit again, or a Terminal command you run frequently. For example I have one where I type “hits” to get the current number of connections to my site, the actual code to do this is a bit long.
