Code or Die live to code

My favorite Mac "hacks"

29 Feb 2020

My fave OS H4X for Mac.

1 Install homebrew

Install trash & other tools

2 Reveal IP address, hostname, OS version, etc. when clicking the clock in the login window

$ login window sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow AdminHostInfo HostName

3 DND all the time

Set the time for Do Not Disturb in Preferences, Turn on from 7:00 AM to 6:59 AM for example.

4 Change background problematically

Use IFTT recipe to download the latest top landscape pictures from a prominent Internet forum on photography. Use Automator to watch folder on Dropbox and set a new Desktop background.
