screen telnet /dev/tty.usbserial
Unfortunately I can't scrollback in screen, which makes copying long config files a process of :apple:-C, :apple:-V, and repeat. Any suggestions for native serial support in the osx terminal app WITH scrollback?
Are you sure thats the command you use? screen telnet /dev/tty.usbserial would start screen and run telnet /dev/tty.usbserial in it which I would expect to fail straight away as telnet doesn't deal with serial ports AFAIK.
What you probably want to use, assuming you are connecting over a serial line is screen /dev/cu.usbserial
If you are the only serial port user on your system it probably doesn't really matter if you use cu or tty but cu is the norm when your connecting out via serial (as opposed to waiting for something to connect in).
With that out of the way I can say that screen does have a scroll back buffer. Perhaps the easiest way to use it, assuming you are using the default key bindings, is CTRL-A ESC and then use your cursor keys to scroll around. ESC again to go back to normal mode. Screen also has copy and paste support built in but you don't need to use it if you are using a modern windowing system like OSX. Remember screen was built for use on dumb terminals where, I can assure you, it's the best thing since sliced bread but thats why it emulates its own terminal within your window.
If you do want to use something built in that does't do its own terminal emulation then there is the cu command. Depending on the permissions setup you might need to be root to run it (or use sudo) - I haven't really used it under OSX.
cu -l /dev/cu.usbserial

Is there a way to reformat the hard drive without losing all of my songs and pictures? And then combine both PC pictures and songs with the new songs on my Mac? Or do I have to buy another hard drive and keep the PC and mac files separate?
If you have any advice or recommendations they would be greatly appreciated! Thank you
Namely fresh goods (fruit/veg/meats etc) and how completely wastefully packaged up they have all become. It disgusts me when for example I see fruit such as apples or pears, sat in polystyrene trays and then shrink wrapped and labelled up!
Chances are, you are actually paying more for this packaging than the products within, let alone the negative impacts it has on the environment in terms of production and (if any) recycling.
Same applies with a whole myriad of food types, and its more a cultural issue perhaps than anything. We have become obsessed with a certain expectation of 'perfection' and that everything must be delivered and presented to us in ship shape condition, free of artifacts or the possibility of contamination.
It would be great to see this issue addressed (chiefly in supermarkets might I add) face on, and it might be more a campaign of advertising than perhaps packaging (of the type I mention)
If however, certain packaging is to be dropped it will have to be replaced with something that still fulfils certain levels of quality & protection etc. This is certainly a design challenge on a few levels, but if there is one thing designers are good at, its thinking laterally about a problem and actually seeing the negatives in existing products/systems etc as being fantastic gateways for improvement.
Just my two pennies!
Good luck with your project.
Other related products are DVD Studio Pro 5, Blu-Ray Drives, Phenomenon (Shake Successor) and Cinema Displays. I do not expect the first three until NAB at the earliest. The Displays maybe at the developers conference.
Apple would not announce Newton 2 at a Final Cut User Event.
Yea thats the most logical thing. But I wasn't saying it would be the Newton 2. I was saying it would be some kind of multimedia editing tablet. The newton 2 just being a rumor based off some random person who didn't have the full story. Ah well, I'm just floating around in dreamland so don't mind me ;)
Just in case I think I'll stay down here. I have a 3-year supply of water and canned food.
Is this why we have a ratings system now?
Skynet took over MacRumors!!:eek:
Maybe it's time to get that wireless card (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=167333)!
There seems to be something a bit lacking in the guides though and I can't put my finger on it. I think it might be the integration with the forums but I don't know how this could really be improved. All up they're very impressive so far though. Maybe we just need to start linking to them from threads more or something.
I reckon in time they'll be more than comprehensive enough.
I'm considering buying either a MBA or a MBP 13'' in the future, and one of the toughest tasks I'd like to do with it would be running GarageBand or Logic Pro. Mainly, I'd be composing Jazz pieces (Piano, Bass, Percussion, Sax and Guitars, in any number of combinations), some solo piano pieces, and maybe some Game-music.
I'd like to know if any of you has experience with the MBA 13'', and can tell me if it is powerful enough for this kind of task. While I would like the portability, I want my laptop to be my sole computer. I know the MBA can run all the other tasks I intend it to alright (Web Browsing, Video-watching, Chatting, Photoshop, PS2 and Nintendo DS Emulation). Music-creating is the only one still holding me back. ;)
If you plan to use it as your sole computer, i would get a MBP. The MBP can be upgraded to 8gb of ram which will be plenty for you to use for years to come.
And I'm not waiting for it to actually be installed in the iMac itself. I prefer the drop-in DVD.
Very nicely done. But yes, completely pointless! It doesn't show what "Spymac 3" is, what its features are. WTF is the point???? :confused:
To hype an already overhyped and WAY overrated site? That's gotta be the point of the trailer. :rolleyes:
Concert for George
Yanni at the Acropolis
a Don Henley/Eagles concert where they played Dirty Laundry and all lined up and jumped up and down.
All were great.
