ControlPlane Preferences

Automating parts of OSX via ControlPlane

Found an interesting OSX app called “ControlPlane” that allows you to automatically set or change various settings on your mac based on certain triggers.

Steve Jobs, 1955 – 2011

  Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.… Read more →
