If you’re using Snow Leopard, you’ll find that the current version of MacFusion refuses to complete a connection to a remote server. 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. I’ve tested SSH and FTP connectivity so far, and they both appear to be working. Thanks again to Geoff for the fix!
Worked perfectly for me. MacFusion is such a great tool.

Thirteen years ago, I left Mexico to study a Ph.D. in the U.S. In the meantime, apart from doing that, I got married, we moved to Switzerland, and we formed a beautiful family. I have learned so many things, I have changed in so many ways. In the words of my advisor, during one of our very early email exchanges, before I went to Purdue:
It isn’t so much a leaving as a beginning of something else. When you return, as you will, it will be with a more wordly viewpoint. That is both a loss and a gain.

We’re big fans of Google Reader. It’s one of the easiest ways to view everyone’s stuff fast. Yesterday, Google Reader added a new Send To feature that lets you post to your favorite places right from Google Reader while you’re looking at stuff.
By popular demand, now you can use this new Send To feature with Posterous. Go to Settings > Send To in Google Reader and under “Don’t see your favorite site?” click Create Custom Link.
Then copy and paste the values below into the custom link fields:
Name URL Icon URL
It should look like this:
Click Save and you’re done.
Now when browsing Google Reader, you’ll see a “Send To” option for Posterous at the bottom of each reader entry like so:
When you click Posterous, you’ll be sent to our “Share on Posterous” page that works like our Bookmarklet. We’ve also revamped the way the bookmarklet handles text posts so if you don’t select any text on a page, we’ll still try to extract the meatiest part of the content of a page.
Of course, you can always still just click “Email” to email@example.com, and that will still work just great too.
Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you run into any problems.

I’ve been meaning to give The Hit List a good try since I got it as part of the Macheist 3 bundle. However, I have to continue tracking my tasks, and I have all of them already in the awesome Things (about which I have written before). So I have spent the last few days putting together a script to migrate my data from Things to THL. You can find it here: http://zzamboni.github.com/things2thl/. You can install it as a gem package or download the source code. There is not much documentation for now, but look at the help (things2thl -h) and you should figure it out quite easily.
If you find anything that is broken, or you have any type of feedback, please let me know (ideally, create an issue in github).
A full review of THL will follow when I’ve had a few days to play with it.
