How To Change Spell Check To Use Us English On Mac

Can’t remember how many times I’ve been bothered by the red dotted underlines telling me “favorite”, “customize” are spelled wrong… apparently the system is using British English to check the spell.

Here is how to change it the use to American English.

Go to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Text, Change Spelling to U.S. English.

Create reminder to your iOS device from Mac


If you already upgraded to Moutain Lion OSX, you definetly don't need this, there is a navtive Reminder app built in :)

Original Post

You need to install Powerpack.

You can download Alfred extension here:

Then launch your alfred, and type r foo, bar to create the reminder.
You can get the notification of Growl after it's done.

Create iOS 5 Reminders Tasks from Alfred





そうしますと、Alfred呼び出してr hogehogeでリマインダーが作成できます。



超オススメです。試してみてくださいー 特にPowerpack購入後は一気にパワーアップですよ!

TextMate Error: Exception raised during posting of notification


Railscastsで紹介した Drawerのプラグインをインストールした後に、ターミナルやTextMateのGUIでフォルダを開くときに画面が真っ白になる。ファイル一つ一つは開ける。


mate*19082:903] Exception raised during posting of notification.  Ignored.  exception: '[NOTE: this exception originated in the server.*
 -*NSCFArray objectAtIndex:]: index (1) beyond bounds (1)'  invoked observer method: '-[OakLaunchHelper didLaunchTextMate:*'  observer: 0x1128a0  notification name: 'NSWorkspaceDidLaunchApplicationNotification'


昔ProjectPlusというProject Drawerをインストールしたことがあり、どうやらその二つが衝突しているよう。

Viewing hidden files on a Mac


  1. ターミナルを開く(アプリケーション/ユーティリティ)
  2. 下記コマンドを叩いてreturnキーを押して実行
  3. ```plain defaults write AppleShowAllFiles -bool true killall Finder ```
  4. ログアウト、あるいはkillall Finderで効果が見れます



defaults write AppleShowAllFiles -bool false


Viewing hidden files on a Mac is useful for accessing the hidden UNIX directories or for recovering Music from an iPod. Additionally, by prefixing the name of a folder with a '.', you can create a folder that is seemingly hidden from prying eyes.

To view hidden folders:

  1. Open the Terminal (located in /Applications/Utilities/)
  2. At the command prompt type
defaults write AppleShowAllFiles -bool true

  1. Press return to execute the command.
  2. For the changes to take effect, either log out then log back in again, or relaunch Finder (this can be done from the Force Quit Window or by typing 'killall Finder' in a Terminal window).

To hide the hidden files again:

  1. Open the Terminal
  2. At the command prompt type
defaults write AppleShowAllFiles -bool false

  1. then press return to execute the command.
  2. Log out then back in again, or relaunch Finder (explained above).
