So Civ V for Mac just dropped last week and I bought it thinking that hey, why don’t I play a little Civ V now and again on my Mac? Sadly, the version made available to the general public apparently does not work a lick and freezes during cinematics. It’s apparently a problem with 10.6.5 and one of the ways to kind of fix it is to hold down command when you start the game to run it in windowed mode. There are also some goofy suggestions to run the PC version under Parallels. But I paid for the Mac version, people. GOSH!
This preference allows you to “peek” inside folders when you press space over a folder in Finder during Quick Look. It’s actually quite useful when you try it.
Turn it on:
defaults write com.apple.finder QLEnableXRayFolders 1
Turn it off:
defaults write com.apple.finder QLEnableXRayFolders 0
If you’re having trouble installing the Office 2011 official install over the beta it could be because you can’t kill Sync Services Agent. It restarts itself constantly. This should kill it permanently and allow you to overwrite it.
$ cd /Applications/Microsoft Office 2011/Office/SyncServicesAgent.app/Contents/MacOS
$ mv SyncServicesAgent SyncServicesAgent.hold
$ killall SyncServicesAgent
