Setup Sublime Text for F# Development

Leopard, Apache2 and MySQL

Downloading MySQL and installing on Leopard is a breeze with the native package. I migrated my database (dump/restore) and recreated my wordpress user, but still kept getting this error: Error establishing a database connection The user could log into the database from the console as shown: ` lantrix@lexx:~ $ mysql -u wordpress -p Enter password: Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g. Your MySQL connection id is 19 Server version: 5.

Compiling readline on an OSX 10.5 intel x86_64

I’m stuck with a whole bunch of problems getting code to compile and co-operate nicely on my new MacBookPro. I’m compiling my own PHP, but it defaults to compiling for the i386 (32bit) architecure, which then fails when Apache2 running in 64bit mode tries to use the 32bit DSO for PHP5. Compiling PHP5 as 64bit then fails linking against the i386 pgsql lib, and so on. I really need everything using the x86_64 architecture. How does this all relate to readline under Leopard?

Translation for the Mac by Kavasoft

About 24 months ago I purchased a version of KavaSoft’s Translation Service application for the Mac. With the recent move from my old Powerbook to my new MacBookPro the application stopped working. Apparently the licence is tied not just to your purchase but to the computer you installed it on. As I had used the Apple migration tool to move everything across to the new laptop, Translation Service stopped working. I dropped an email to the developer and literally got an email response 60 minutes later with an updated licence.

Switching to multi-line mode using Textmate Regex

So you have a pattern you want to match across multiple lines, and you have a regular expression that matches it. You will probably be used to doing this in perl like this: /some.+?stuff/s or using regex in ruby like this: /some.+?stuff/m However you have just started to get used to Textmate as an editor and you see it supports regex matching. Why though does it not use /s or /m for multi-line dot matching?
