Xcode Install Assistant can’t be installed on Macintosh HD because Mac OS X version 10.7 or later is required.
Apple has now made Xcode free via the app store – unfortunately since Lion has been released they no longer allow anyone with Snow Leopord to download and install it from the App Store.

Twitter has a bot to crawl webpages: Twitterbot. I noticed it in the server logs. The user agent is Twitterbot/1.0. The IP address is 184.108.40.206. Why is twitter crawling web pages? Google’s spiders regularly crawl the web to rebuild our index. Crawls are based on many factors such as PageRank, links to a page, and crawling constraints such as the number of parameters in a URL. Any number of factors can affect the crawl frequency of individual sites.
If you’re trying to change the Quicksilver Screen Capture Location, it can be tricky. By default these are stored on the Desktop. You can change the system defaults (using the tips below), which is what happens when you take a screenshot using cmd+shift+3 / cmd+shift+4. But Quicksilver does not acknowledge these changes / read the preferences. You could just use the standard OS X key bindings for these. cmd+shift+3 for Capture Screen, cmd+shift+4 for Capture Region and cmd+shift+4 followed by space for Capture Window. The one advantage to the Quicksilver commands is that after they run, a new command window appears with the newly generated image selected as the object, ready for you to rename it or move it or do whatever you want.

The Paraphrase Tool – for Mac / OS X If you need to pare down text on mac os x, you might want to try the Summary Service. You can select text from most applications (Safari, Text Edit, etc) and then choose the apple menu, services, and then summary. If the application you are using doesn’t support services, copy the text to a TextEdit document to get a summary. As you can see, you will be able to edit how long you want the summary to be and if you want it in sentences or paragraphs. The accuracy of the summaries has actually been quite impressive in my past experience with this great feature. On Mac OS X this tool can be found at /System/Library/Services/SummaryService.app
