Wow, I am out of touch with the gaming community.

I was on the MidwayUSA site and my wife asked me if it was the video game company.

No, I said, but then when I pulled up the info on Wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midway_Games ), I was surprised to see that they had filed for bankruptcy.

Yikes!

While fresh on the topic of changing what app opens what file in Mac OS X, I found a free app (donations appreciated) where you can easily change those settings in a preference pane: RCDefaultApp

I had installed Xcode 3.2.6 and Xcode 4.0.2 on my workstations, but, when I double-clicked a project, Xcode 4 would open… which is not what I want.

So, I found this article that actually shows how to take care of that.

Basically, you “Get Info” on a file and can select what application opens the file from that dialog box.

I wanted to get rid of the “build” directories in my source folders before prepping my source folders for git, so I used the following command to get rid of them:

find . -iname "build" -type d -print -execdir rm -R '{}' \;

I don’t get enough sleep, thanks to git

I don’t know why I do such things. I didn’t go to bed till midnight cause I was checking out git 😉

I installed git on my Mac, which was rather easy using the installer, and started to play with it.

I’m actually curious to see how this will work for me, compared to Perforce that is.

So far, it feels like any other command line version control system I have used in the past.

The real test will be how this versioning system compares to what I’m using now in a couple of months.
