where does mac mail pull its address book intelisense?
For some reason my hostname on my mac keeps changing. I first noticed it when I loaded bootcamp with windows XP. I have been bringing my computer to work and log onto their wireless and I start using synergy. This is when I actually notice that the hostname has changed. The reason I think it has something to do with windows or bootcamp is because the name of the windows machine name is what the hostname changes to. I wonder what is going on here?
Another great experience with the terminal. Since I reformatted I lost macfuse and sshfs to mount my server’s drive to my mac os x desktop to transfer files I had to find an alternative. Yes I could use some FTP client but since I have learned how unsecure ftp can be I have started to used the command line anyways. So to transfer my files I learned about scp. Great little utilty. Here’s the command:
scp file username@server:directory
