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).

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 .
