Follow Me on Twitter

In case you’ve never heard of twitter, it’s a social networking service that makes it very easy to see what your friends are doing, as well as tell your friends what you are doing.  If you want to follow me, I’ve made it very easy by adding a link on the lower right side of my site (which also shows my updates), and you can also follow me by clicking here.

I love February

February is the best month of the year. Why? Because it has the best snow of the year, and you’ve had all of January to get excited about it (not quite as cold and the days are a little longer)! I had a great weekend–from the nostalgia moments I had with my friend as we went through my old classic Macintosh collection to enjoying the snow on presidents day.

How to Verify Files with an MD5 Hash

With so much fraud and problems with security on the internet, it’s sometimes hard to know if a file you download on the internet is what you think it is or not.  Fortunately, you have a way of taking a “fingerprint” of any file you wish to post, and likewise a way of verifying any file you download against that same “fingerprint”.  The instructions I give for this tutorial (and every tutorial I’ll do) will be for the Mac, but most everything I show will be able to be done in any *nix OS.  Sorry Windows users.
