“Recent applications” in your Dock:

defaults write persistent-others -array-add 

	'{ "tile-data" = { "list-type" = 1; }; "tile-type" = "recents-tile"; }'

Then simply restart your dock with

killall Dock

and see the icon next to Bin. Works nicely for me!

Some m/…./r constantly attacks my home NAS, trying all possible usernames and passwords – from Chinese IP address. Reminds me of a joke, when Chinese hackers tried to break into the Pentagon’s servers – each on of them tried password ‘Mao Tse-tung’, on a billionth attempt the server agreed that its passwords is indeed ‘Mao Tse-tung’. Weird, but this idiot keeps trying. Should I change my SSH port? Or what?

Just curious, will it work if I embed a flash to Tumblr, claiming it as video – which it isn’t? According preview window, it should work - so let it be so!

Another idea, this time for Twitter/FireEagle mash-up. Out there in a wild there’s a number of apps, which can update your FireEagle location, or Twitter status/location, or both, or take it from one and put to another… What I here suggest is a most simple thing you can probably imagine.

It’s simple, really: a service which monitors your location on FireEagle and Twitter and why should we limit us just with two services? Any location-based service which has an open API will do. Whenever it detects that you have updated a location on one of the services, it broadcasts it to all others - so you can you use favourite Twitter client (say, TwitterPhone) to update your FireEagle location, and keep your Twitter location up-to-date whenever you launch Yofe on your iPhone. 

Anyone wanna take it? :)

An idea for geo/twitter mash-up for #openhackday - a service, which geocodes all tweets and places them on a map. Seriously, it may work - Yahoo! GeoPlanet is a perfect tool for doing it!

An extended idea – display the map with bubbles, size of the bubble indicate number of tweets, clicking on the bubble fire up the feed of tweets geocoded to this location.
