Mac Productivity Tip: Tagging Files

Here’s a little productivity tip for those of you who may need it. In OS X, one of the features that I find is vastly underused is Spotlight comments. Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a way to tag your files quickly and easily with say… a “TODO” tag or something so you could easily find them and remember to work on something? Using Automator, you can do this very quickly.

Quick Safari/Snow Leopard Tip

If you’re having stupid amounts of trouble with your plugins loading in Safari4 on Snow Leopard, go to your Finderand open /Applications. Right-click on the Safari app and choose “Get Info.” On that screen, you’ll see a checkboxto run the app in 32-bit mode. Check that. Restart Safari if it’s open. Now you’ll find that your plugins magically work. I guess this whole 64-bit thing has caught developers with their pants down.
