git & github

I finally got a git account, my site is here. Most people, more recently seem to be there and the download interface is now much easier than sourceforge. This was stated in 2011 and I have returned to using git at several times over the years. I tidied up the page in Feb 2019, transferring some out of date text to comments.

Gdrive & Linux

My original article in 2015 pointed at the fanclub’s grive, this ceased to work on my elementary build and so with some googling I found this page
http://elementaryos.stackexchange.com/questions/276/how-to-install-google-drive/2478#2478
and installed grive 2, looks like it needs rc files

ooOOOoo

It seems that googledrive integration with Linux is going to be weak for some reason, it can’t be because it’s hard given the Linux expertise that exists in the company and they seem not to be implementing WEBDAV. This is a bit of a pain as I’d love to use the default file managers on my Linux builds. However, google publish a developer API and Nautilus is open source. It could be done.

Macports

This page has been written in four parts. It was originally created in April 2011 and driven by my desire to install WINE. It was significantly added to in Oct 2013 when I upgraded to MacOS X 10.6, Snow Leopard. It was at this point that I transferred from Porticus to Pallet. In Dec 2013, I documented the Macports runes for MacOS 10.9 which, of course, breaks Pallet. I have by now written a script to keep my Macports up to date. In June 2014, I returned to WINE and used Macports to install Wineskin and uninstall WINE. This page was further updated in April 2016 as I moved forward from Yosemite to El Capitan. My Mac is now no more, and I have marked this page as deprecated.
