Upgrading to Mac OS X Snow Leopard was simple easy and quick

Everything went smoothly, all of my apps worked great. Loved the subtle interface changes, loved how quick everything loads. I really like the sharing features in itunes 9 and the new quicktime interface is great.
All was well on my MacBook Pro until I got to work and tried to mount my dev platform using MacFusion.

MacFusion now refuses to complete a connection to a remote server.

With the help of a post I found at Racker Hacker,
you can fix this in two steps:

First, quit MacFusion.

Second, open System Preferences and then open the MacFUSE pane. Check the “Show Beta Versions” box and click “Check For Updates”. Go ahead and update MacFUSE.

Third, open up a terminal and do the following:

rm /Applications/Macfusion.app/Contents/PlugIns/sshfs.mfplugin/Contents/Resources/sshnodelay.so

Your MacFusion installation should now be working on Snow Leopard. My SSH and FTP seem to work fine now.

Thanks Racker Hacker

Not everyone knows the Apple shortcut icons

I had someone ask me the meaning of a shortcut icon today, so I figured I’d post them.
