Hippies

Hipster + Yuppie = Hippie Labels are so like yesterday, man. Thought of this today. It is an interesting redefinition of what it means to be a modern day Hippie.

Hipstersism didn’t or hasn’t really taken off like the counterculture movement of the 60′s thou. Maybe it isn’t really a fair reinterpretation of the word. I liked this post a week ago.

Removing the Developer Tools

I was looking for a way to removing the developer tools folder and found a perl script that removes the developer tools from your system.

You can run it from the terminal by typing: # sudo ./Developer/Tools/uninstall-devtools.pl Tested on 10.4 and it removes everything but one folder.
