Time to say Goodbye to QuickSilver?

Jan 12 2009 Published by under Apple,English,Mac,OS X,Software

QuickSilver is our favorite application on the Mac. The great developer of this awesome tool – Nicholas Jitkoff has made it opensource and went to work for google more than a year ago.

Today, the same Nicholas Jitkoff from Google has introduced The Quick Search Box. Which I would believe is a replacement for QuickSilver from now on.

The good things are:

  1. Same awesome developer and more
  2. Still opensource
  3. Google

Go ahead grab it for yourself at:

Some tips:

  • If you have hard time on adding Google Account, please try capitalizing the first letter of your username and domain name, such as ‘Libin.Pan’ and ‘’

Google Chrome and Its Comic Book

Sep 01 2008 Published by under English,Software

Chrome for Windows is ready for downloading now:

Google Chrome

Google Chrome is Google’s open source browser project. As rumored before under the name of “Google Browser”, this will be based on the existing rendering engine Webkit. Furthermore, it will include Google’s Gears project.

Google just announced it will launch a new web browser tomorrow, Sep. 2nd, 2008. It’s called Chrome.

So why are we launching Google Chrome? Because we believe we can add value for users and, at the same time, help drive innovation on the web.

A interest part of this launch is Google created a comic book to explain the Chrome. I spent some time put it together as a pdf share it here:

What to do when GitHub goes bad

Jul 28 2008 Published by under English,Ruby,Software

What to do when GitHub goes bad?

This was originally posted on github, I save a backup here just in case. :)

  • Git build-in server

git daemon –base-path=/Users/libinpan/clone-from-github –export-all

git clone git://…

Note: The default port git uses is 9418. Make sure that your firewall is set up to handle this.

  • GitWeb

git instaweb –httpd=webrick

  • Deploy with Capistrano

set :repository, “git://”
