Facebook Chat in Adium

Facebook Chat - Adium

If this is the first time you connect to facebook chat through XMPP, please read the note at the end of the Post

Adium is one of the best Instant Messaging Client out there for Mac, it can be easily customized or themed, and it supports multiple Accounts and Instant Messaging Protocol. But for some reason, Facebook Chat doesn’t seem to work in Adium (with latest stable release 1.4.1), I can add my Facebook Account but it kept asking for authorization thus I can’t connect to Facebook chat.

Updating To Snow Leopard 10.6.6 In EeePC 1005HA

Updating to Snow Leopard 10.6.6 in eeePC 1005HA

There’s an official Twitter application available for mac which you can get for free, but sadly you can only get it from Mac App store, which is available in Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later. So, last night I decided to update my Snow Leopard from 10.6.5 to 10.6.6. The updating process is rather easy and doesn’t require much effort, I just need to make a backup of 10.6.5 mach_kernel and a few kexts, just as what I did when updating from 10.6.3 to 10.6.5 (written in this guide). Want to know how? Here’s how to do it:

Virtually Increase Resolution in MacOS

I’m running Mac OS X Snow Leopard from my eeePC 1005HA and as you know, eeePC has a very low screen resolution (1024×600) Ambivalent.png . This make some applications window/interface not visible thus making some options or buttons unusable/unclickable VeryAngry.png . An example is the Print window from Microsoft Office as shown in the picture below.

To be able to view the whole window I need to increase my screen resolution to a higher resolution, but it’s not possible to further increase the screen resolution in my eeePC since 1024×600 is the max resolution that I can get LargeGasp.png .

But thankfully, you can edit plist files in MacOS to simulate a higher resolution view for certain apps or the whole system Hot.png (I do not recommend using this method as a way to increase the resolution for the whole system or permanently since some apps won’t render correctly using this method, ex. misplaced input box). This trick can be done through the Terminal command, but I’m going to explain how to this using a 3rd party application Sticking Out Tongue.png .

Create a new Wireless Network (ad-hoc) on Mac OS using an applescript.

AppleScript Editor

I know it’s easy Blush.png to create a new wireless network on your by simply going to Airport Status Bar at the top screen and hit the “Create Network…”, but what if you would like your mac to automatically create and ad-hoc network every time at startup or maybe making it simple for you to create an ad-hoc network by just running an applescript instead of repeating over and over the same process via the Airport Status Bar. Either way, here’s how you do it:

Install Hackintosh on eeePC 1005HA

Hackintosh eeePC 1005HA

This is my step-by-step how to install Hackintosh on my eeePC 1005HA.

Some things that you’ll need and prepare:

  1. A computer running Mac OS (you’ll need it to create your Snow Leopard Installation USB).
  2. Mac OS X Snow Leopard Retail DVD 10.6.0 (you’ll need this to create your Snow Leopard Installation DVD).
  3. USB Flashdisk or SD Card (media that’ll we use to install Snow Leopard into our eeePC 1005HA).
  4. USB Keyboard and Mouse (you need to prepare both of ’em since Mac OS X Setup won’t detect your eeePC 1005HA keyboard and touchpad, yet).
  5. Snow Leopard 1005HA Installation kit (includes everything you need to ensure your Snow Leopard and hardware runs well.
