WoW:WotLK 3.0.1 installers

Here’s a list of all World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King installers:

English: WinMac

French: WinMac

German: WinMac

Spanish: WinMac

The download is 2.04Gb (on a Mac), I haven’t started the download on a Windows yet.

And yes, you will still need a beta invitation before being able to login!

You’ll find me under Tuinslak or Isazi on the EU beta realm.

As for the character copy, it was done within 10 minutes. Just 5 hours left on the download. 🙁

Edit: same size on a Windows – 2.04Gb. The download contains the setup.exe and the installer.app, so you should be able to copy it to any OS.

Namely + hiding its icon

I recently started to use Namely but having its icon in my dock was quite annoying (like to keep my dock clean).

Namely is an app that let’s you launch any application by typing in a few letters of that program’s name. Just type in a key combination ([Apple]+E here), and Namely’s window pop ups.

After a bit of Googling I found that it was possible to hide icons from the dock.

First of all, configure Namely, make sure it pop ups if you type in your key combo. If you don’t do that now, you’ll have problems to configure it later.

Once that’s done, quit Namely.

Then go to the Namely.app folder (using Terminal), and add these 2 lines

1
2
<key>LSUIElement</key>
<string>1</string>

between <dict> and </dict>

This is what it should look like:

(Nano is the editor I use, but you can also use vi or vim too, depending what’s installed + you might have Namely installed in a different directory)

Nazgul:~ yeri$ cd /Applications/Utilities/Namely.app/
Nazgul:Namely.app yeri$ nano -w Contents/Info.plist

This is how my Info.plist looks like:

Notice line 25 & 26.

And that should be it — double click Namely to start it up, hit your keyboard shortcut, and it should pop up!

Namely

No icon in my dock. 🙂

Hamachi(X) on Leopard

When playing with KisMAC, I noticed something weird in my /var/log/system.log;

$date com.apple.launchd[1] (tuncfgd$pid) posix_spawnp("/usr/sbin/tuncfg", ...):
No such file or directory
$date com.apple.launchd[1] (tuncfgd$pid) Exited with exit code: 1
$date com.apple.launchd[1] (tuncfgd) Throttling respawn: Will start in 10 seconds

tun is (trying) to restart every 10 (!) seconds.
I tried updating Hamachi‘s tun/tap drivers, without any success. It kept restarting the process every 10 seconds.

After a bit of Googling, it seemed to be a known problem. So I decided to uninstall Hamachi & the tun/tap drivers.

sudo rm -r /usr/bin/hamachi
sudo rm -r  /usr/bin/hamachi-init
sudo rm -r  /usr/sbin/tuncfg
sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tuncfgd.plist
sudo rm -r /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tuncfgd.plist
sudo rm -r /Applications/HamachiX

This should solve the restarting problem. You might want to reboot to be sure.

When uninstalling the drivers, HamachiX will be gone; there will be no way to use it. You can decide to ignore the spawning-processes, and keep using Hamachi as-is, but the spawning processes might slow down your computer. But HamachiX should work (although it often crashed here).

I tried reinstalling the tun/tap drivers, but the same happens. I guess I’ll have to wait for a fix. 🙁

On the other side, I’ve tried the console version of Hamachi (so no HamachiX) which seems to be working fine (so far). Just missing out on the handy GUI. Edit

Mac OS X > Windows

When surfing the web, I came upon an old site we (read: Rootspirit) used to host.

Nick, one of the posters, wrote an article I totally agree with. It really reflects why I’m using Mac instead of Windows now.

Read about it here (Dutch), or here (Google translated, far from understandable)
