This is a workaround for the Finder insisting on starting a search of the entire HDD on every new search rather than the good ol’ days of 10.3 which was to search in the directory you were staring at. I know you can click a button to switch it, but every time? No, I like the old way better.
An AppleScript to replace spaces (‘ ‘) with underscore (‘_’) in names of files selected in the Finder. It does not do folders, but should be easy enough to modify so it can.

- It runs a process named ‘ipcserver’ that remains alive after you quit the client.
- The UI is non/sub-standard.

To overcome that last item (which throws an error stating “steam engine instance already exists”) you have to manually remove a couple of files from /private/tmp. In Terminal type rm /private/tmp/*-steam-mstr-* and press return, then launch Steam.

An AppleScript that will export the image file associated with an entry in Address Book.
An AppleScript (app) to duplicate any file you’ve added to its list to the folder of the frontmost Finder window.
An AppleScript to generate a numbering table in comma separated value format. Works great with InDesign's data merge function.

A custom ‘About This Mac’ window image replacement for a 15″ Titanium PowerBook. Continue reading
