Symbolic Link Service

Script CreamAutomator sorts services.

One of the things that makes me have to fire up the Terminal for in Mac OS X is to create symbolic links. In Snow Leopard though, it is possible to use Automator to create a Service so I can create the links using a contextual menu in the Finder.

Feel free to download the Automator service here.  Once downloaded, open it in Automator, then “Save as” to save it in your Services folder (which is in your home folder Library/Services).

AppleSnow Leopard’s internal bits and bobs

Another release of Mac OS X, another excellent, in-depth review by John Siracusa over at Ars Technica.  I got hooked on his reviews after I stumbled on the review of Tiger, and all the under-the-hood goodies he reveals.

Eject Disks in Snow Leopard

Apple LogoQuit that application fool!

It seems that Apple are taking notice of utilities like Eject Disks and building notice of what is preventing a disk being ejected into Snow Leopard (see Eject icon More Reliable Disk Eject at the bottom of the Snow Leopard refinements page).

As a result I will probably not be updating Eject Disks with feature updates once Snow Leopard is released, although bug fixes will still be released of course.

Update: I will most probably be investigating tying Eject Disks in with the system eject function using kicker.xml and configd, so development may continue of Leopard to try and make it similar to Snow Leopard.
