Cristmas Tree for Mac December 16, 2006

Posted by geekzendaddy in Christmas, Freeware, Fun, OS X, Tree.

I know it’s cutting it close, but I just realized that I have had a Christmas tree on my Mack for 15 something days and forgot to blog about it. It works great 🙂 I love my tree 🙂 It blinks and is movable and best of all it keeps reminding me how few days that I have left to buy stuff 😀

I tried this plugin and it works great!  It really does make sending pictures easier.  Give it a try….


A little about the plugin:


iPhoto2Gmail is a project I worked on because I often found myself trying to walk family members through the process of exporting and resizing pics from their iPhoto library in order to gmail them to others.   I realized that the multi-step process was a little cumbersome compared to most tasks on a Mac. I used this as an excuse to get my feet wet with Cocoa and all the neat new Xcode features.   This is the result… so far


It is still a very early piece of software, probably has many bugs, and is rough around the edges. I hope to improve on it and that it will be useful to some folks. © 2006 Juan I. Leon


Full Screen in Quicktime December 7, 2006

Full screen for free

Reader Rudy Grasso would like to get something for nothing and writes:

In one of your magazine issues you explained how to get Full Screen when viewing a movie in QuickTime. When I recently upgraded to QuickTime 7.01, full screen will not open anymore. Is there a way to have QuickTime 7 play in full screen without paying for the pro version?

Sure. Launch Script Editor and enter this:

Save the script as an application. Now open the movie you want to view in full screen in QuickTime Player. Double-click the AppleScript application you just created and your movie will play at full screen.
