10.5: Add a 'recent things' stack to the Dock
Authored by: blukens on Nov 14, '07 07:59:48AM
Okay, I'm going to be totally vain here and take credit for that "defaults" command. It's definitely my Ars post that mithras is referring to. So, uh, go me?

Oh come on! If a feature exists. it's just a matter of discovering it, and there are only so many ways to execute a given command.

Your comment was posted Nov 4 (which "mithras" credited you with when posting Nov 5).

Considering this hint was submitted on Nov 1, I would say "manum" is ahead of you.

You know that Conan bit where the guy gets the stamp on his face?

Hey, I'm just kidding around here. Clearly the real credit goes to manum, or whoever discovered the hack originally.

I just thought it was cool that my own slight contribution was kinda sorta used on the site. That's all. Sure, anyone who's familiar with "defaults" could have done the same thing, but I did spend a little time figuring it out. And if mithras can get credit for passing it along, I should get a little something, right? ;)

Credit granted :), and if this hint ends up winning the contest, well, I'm technically not sure what would happen ... we'd have to go to the judges on that one (saw an iMac in thirds?). I'm sure we'd figure something out!

regards,
