I'm testing playing around with Tracks on Rails (a GTD app) at the moment. So far I like it a lot.
After setting it up I thought, that it would be convenient if it started up automatically when I turn on my Mac.
There's a "better startup item for Mac OS X Tiger" linked on the official page, but it didn't work for me.
With the help of my brother I changed it so it does now work.

old not-solution... )

EDIT 2009-03-27: It still doesn't work though (as I had to find out). *goes-back-to-fiddling-with-this*

EDIT 2009-03-28: Here's what finally worked for me:
Write a shell-script along these lines (where NAME is your username, and line 2 matches your path!). Save it as tracks.sh.


Open a terminal and do the following:


The important thing is, that your shellscript has the same name as the app and is executable!

Now you've got a neat little thing called "tracks" in your Applications folder, which you can doubleclick to start the server or put into you "Login Items".

I'm fiddling with software again. This time it's a wordpress-plugin.

If you've got a self hosted WordPress blog and a LiveJournal you might want to automatically update your Journal when you post to your blog.

I tested Live+Press and JournalPress with WP-Flock.

The winner for me is option number one: it has everything I want neatly packed into one customizeable plugin.
If you want to synch to more than one journal at the same time or to InsaneJournal, DeadJournal and so on you will want to take a closer look at option number two.
