Posted by jpluimers on 2012/07/27

Ik had wat spullen aan electronica en ijzerwaren nodig, en onderstaande zaken hebben me uitstekend geholpen.

Ze zijn beide niet groot, maar dat is juist hun kracht: ze weten alles van wat ze verkopen, geven juist advies en hebben vriendelijke bediening.

Daarnaast hebben ze beide naast hun winkel, ook een webshop.

Mac OS X: Copy and paste the full path of a file in the Finder (via: Reality Distortion)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/07/27

FilePathToClipCMPlugin is a live saver.

  1. Download it.
  2. Open the .dmg
  3. Open a new Finder window
  4. Point it to the folder “/Library/Contextual Menu Items/” or to “˜/Library/Contextual Menu Items/” (create the latter if it does not exist).
  5. Drag the required plugins there
  6. Restart your machine (restarting the Finder did not work for me)
