Facebook application: Import Gallery pictures into Facebook
**Update**: The source code of my application can be found on [Google Code: Facebook Gallery Import](http://code.google.com/p/facebook-gallery-import/) I have a Gallery where all our family pictures can be seen. My mom, dad and brother all frequently upload pictures on this site, which makes it a central point for all our family’s digital photography sharing & archiving needs. Encouraged by the fast growth of the Facebook social-networking site, I wanted to be able to easily transfer pictures from my Gallery into Facebook photo albums so that my Facebook friends could see my little guy.
Review of Netgear HDX101 Powerline HD Ethernet Adapters
_Why should you not buy the Netgear HDX101 Powerline HD Ethernet Adapters (or any other Powerline network adapters for that matter)?_ Offering 200 mbps of network bandwidth, those adapters looks like a very good replacement for a slow wireless network you might have. No long cable required; you simply need to plug one adapter in room A, another adapter in room B, and attach both to the respective room's LAN / network appliance to create a instant long-range LAN in your house.
How to fix non-working Folder Action on an external hard disk
I had a problem with [Folder Actions](http://www.apple.com/applescript/folderactions/ "Folder Actions"): they always stopped working after a while! Quite annoying. After some digging on Google, I found one post on [MacOSXHints](http://www.macosxhints.com) forums where a user mentioned that a FA attached to a folder on an external HDD would always stop working after un-mounting / re-mounting the hard disk; exactly what was happening to me! So I started fiddling with AppleScript, and found a way to detach then re-attach a FA associated with a folder.
GobbleRSS - PDA-friendly web-based RSS reader
(Visit the [GobbleRSS](http://GobbleRSS.pommepause.com/) website for more details about the application itself.) After I finished reading my latest book, which is what I usually do during my daily commuting to and from work, I started looking for a way to read my RSS feeds on a Palm device during that time. First, a friend of mine lent me his Palm Zire 31 (thanks!). Next, I started looking for a way to get unread RSS items from Google Reader into the Palm device.
Blowfish encryption plugin for Colloquy
_Do you want to skip all this text and just get the Colloquy Blowfish Plugin? Then click __[here](#colloblowdownload)__. _ Lately, IRC channels where I hang started using Blowfish encryption for all messages sent to the channel. mIRC and eggdrop support Blowfish pretty easily, but there was nothing for [Colloquy](http://www.colloquy.info/) (the IRC client I use - Mac OS X only) to encrypt & decrypt Blowfish encrypted messages. So I started looking for a way to encrypt & decrypt Blowfish messages using a Colloquy plugin.
FrontRow Enabler for 10.4.8
_Do you want to skip all this text and just get the new FrontRow Enabler for 10.4.8? Then click __[here](#frontrowenabler131)__. _ Ok. So I wanted to install FrontRow 1.3 on my _old_ PowerMac G5... Downloaded [FrontRow Enabler](http://andrewescobar.com/frontrow) 1.3, followed instructions, rebooted... And **bam**, no more login screen. How fun. Checking the comments on [Andrew Escobar's page](http://andrewescobar.com/frontrow), I realized 10.4.8 wasn't supported just yet. So I used my trusty FireWire cable to fix my PowerMac (see how in the comments of Andrew's page), and started to look for a way to patch FrontRow Enabler 1.
Adding EPG for Canada to EyeTV software
_[Note] __[EyeTV EPG Proxy](http://eep.pommepause.com/)__ now has it's own website. Check it out for more details._ _ _ [Update] Elgato now offers Canadian EPG in EyeTV 3.1 (they’re now using TV Guide as their source for both US and Canada). The first year is free for all users, but starting in 2010, we’ll need to pay 20$ US a year to continue receiving the EPG._ _ I own a Mac-based DVR for quite some time now; a Miglia EvolutionTV.
Compiling PHP 5 on Mac OS X
Not that easy... Note that the following will only work on Tiger, not on Panther nor Leopard! 1. Install Xcode; latest (currently 2.4) is always a good idea. 2. Install fink. 3. Install needed packages using fink: sudo fink selfupdate sudo fink install libjpeg libtiff libpng3 libxml t1lib5 uw-imap-c-client-ssl libmcrypt libmhash ming mysql15-dev postgresql80-ssl-dev Note: Continue with the other steps while this process. It will take a while! For step 7, wait for this to complete.
Canadian Holidays in iCal
I publish and maintain a calendar of all the Canadian Holidays. I started it in iCal.app (on my Mac) and I was publishing it using WebDAV on my web server, but I now imported it in Google Calendar, where I maintain and share it. Here’s the link to get it in iCal format or add it directly to your
Activism: RapidWeaver Contact Form vulnerability
RapidWeaver is a nice software for Mac OS X that allows people with no knowledge of HTML/CSS whatsoever to create very nice websites. (This website was created with RapidWeaver.) It comes with themes, page templates, etc. One of those page template is a PHP Contact Form. It has come to my attention (from the RealmacSoftware support forums) that the PHP code generated by RapidWeaver (version 3.2.1 or less) is vulnerable to mail header injection attacks.
