Add Spacers to the OS X Dock

A few days ago I was watching a video tutorial about CodePen and I noticed that the narrator had spacers in his OS X dock. A quick Google search found this Life Hacker article by Melanie Pinola on how to issue a few Terminal commands to get spacers in the dock.

Hope this helps you get your OS X Dock tidied up.

Quick Tip: Turn off OS X Notification Center

On a occasion when I am sharing my screen with others I seem to always forget to disable OS X’s Notification Center. Typically you would turn it off using System Preferences however, I just learned that you can simply Option-Click on the Notification Center icon in the upper right corner of the menu bar to toggle it on and off. No more unexpected screen interruptions.

Technology Complacency – I’m in a good place

This is the first time in many years that I am not feeling the need to upgrade my desktop computer, laptop, smart phone or  tablet. I’m not even feeling the slightest urge to to get new kit of any kind. My 27″ 2011 iMac is running great, my iPad mini is awesome, my 2012 Macbook Pro laptop is way more than I need on the road and for teaching and my iPhone 4s still works great.

In the past I would feel the effects of the Steve Jobs “reality distortion field” and feel compelled to upgrade. No more. Maybe it’s the “turning 50” thing?

Everything is working, and working dang well.

How about you?
