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 .

Get rid of Facebook Chat bar from Facebook

I’ve been using Trillian as my default Instant Messaging to log in to multiple services such as Yahoo Messenger, MSN, and Facebook Chat. But what I noticed is that every time I receive messages from contacts on Facebook Chat, the message will appear both at Trillian and Facebook Web page Angry.png . It may not be a big problem, but it’s kinda annoying for me (well, at least that’s what I think Sticking Out Tongue.png ).

Edit Cookies in Opera

In Firefox you can easily edit site cookies using Add N Edit Cookies or Edit Cookies Add-on. But in Opera you don’t have to install any extensions, plugins or add-ons to be able to edit Cookies for specific site since this feature is already built in Opera. I’m going to show you how to edit Cookies in Opera using various ways.

The First Method

[foogallery id=”650″]

In Opera you can edit any Cookies for site that you’ve visited from the “Preferences”.

  1. Open the Preferences (Menu > Settings > Preferences or by pressing Ctrl+F12)
  2. Go to the Advanced tab and select Cookies from the list on the left and then click the “Manage Cookies” button.
  3. A new window will appear with a list of all the websites you’ve visited. Expand the items to view the cookies. You can also use the Quick Find bar to easily find a specific site.

The downside of using this methods is that every time you wanted to edit cookies, you’ve to go through a long process (Menu > Settings > Preferences > Cookies > Manage Cookies). For a more shorter way, follow the second method.

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.
