Dashboard Widgets Mysteriously Disappeared


Ever try adding a new Dashboard widget like Stickies, only to find that all the widgets are gone?

Make sure the widgets exist in /Library/Widgets and/or ~/Library/Widgets and then try resetting Launchpad’s Database via Terminal:

$ rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dock/*.db ; killall Dock

This worked for me on Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9.2, however it should work on Lion/Mountain Lion also. Post a comment if it worked for you on a different version!

How to Fix a Stuck iPhone Screen


If your iPhone screen won’t turn on, but you know it’s on because you can hear sounds and/or feel it vibrate, don’t panic. Try a hard reset! Here’s how:

Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo.

(This works on any iOS device and also when your iOS device is just simply stuck, locked up, or frozen)

Had the urge to tinker with something new today, so I decided to integrate the Disqus commenting system to the site.

Fun fact: This blog was launched exactly a year ago. Woohoo!
