So I installed MacSaber the instant I heard of it because, well, I’m a total geek and the concept of turning my MacBook Pro into a light saber was just too good to pass up. It works well, a little too well, if you ask me. Be on the lookout for Ghyslain-alikes popping up left and right on YouTube any day now…
Sweet: Undercover – an anti-theft program designed to help catch Mac laptop thieves. It takes random screenshots, “calls home”, simulates system errors to confound thieves, and will even use iSight-equipped MacBooks to take snapshots of the villains.
Well, it looks as if I can put a stop to my pursuit of a Grand Army of the Undead, as I finally brought Oracle to heel this morning.
And all it took was 20 hours of research on Google, a maraton session on Metalink, an application of an Oracle patch or three, 45 minute runs of
catnools.sql and a sprinkling of goats’ blood.
Okay, I made that last part up. I’m moving everything to Postgres as soon as I can.
