The research suggests that hamsters fed GM foods lost their ability to reproduce after 3 generations. Lovely.

Git is my friend

I know Git is my friend because Git helps me out in a pinch. I think Git's the kind of friend that would help me move...

I'm working on some new features, this morning, and a customer comes in and wants the latest build of their app on their iPhone... ack, I have uncommitted changes on my branch, but I need to checkout their branch. No problem...

git stash
git checkout customerbranch
# build their app
git checkout previousbranch
git stash apply

...and I'm back to where I was a few minutes ago without having to clone another copy of repository or commit unfinished work.

Thanks Git, you're a great friend!

VMWare Fusion 3: vmmon.kext was installed improperly

Here's a tip if you're having trouble installing/running VMWare Fusion 3 on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

The installer displayed this error message:

System extension cannot be used

The system extension "/Library/Application Support/VMWare Fusion/kexts/vmmon.kext" was installed improperly and cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it, or contact the product's vendor for an update.

Turns out I still had remnants of VMWare Fusion 2 installed. I ran the Uninstaller that came with VMWare Fusion 3, then ran the installer again... the install finally worked!
