Windows search is sometimes stupid! It cannot find files/folders when they exist!!
I just went and installed Everything Search Engine and now searching is great again 🙂
I mounted MacOS 10.12 Sierra as a virtual machine on a windows host. By default the screen resolution is 1024×768, this is small resolution especially when you have a large screen.. So how to increase it?
EFI provides two distinct video interfaces: GOP (Graphics Output Protocol) and UGA (Universal Graphics Adapter). Mac OS X uses GOP, while Linux tends to use UGA. VirtualBox provides a configuration option to control the framebuffer size for both interfaces.
To control GOP, use the following VBoxManage command:
VBoxManage setextradata "VM name" VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N
Where N can be one of 0,1,2,3,4,5 referring to the 640×480, 800×600, 1024×768, 1280×1024, 1440×900, 1920×1200 screen resolution respectively.
To get the machine name use
vboxmanage list vms
For me I choose 1440×900
VBoxManage setextradata "mac" VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode 4
Ordered a custom MacBook Air, 13″ from Apple Germany on the 16. August 2016 and followed its travel plane 🙂

In order to Use Babun (or other Cygwin clones) as a terminal in PhpStorm and make it open Cygwin command in specified directory on windows then follow this easy steps:
For the PhpStorm that I’am using (v10.0.4) in Windows 10, open File > Settings… > Tools > Terminal, replace the shell path with :
D:\tools\.babun\cygwin\bin\env.exe CHERE_INVOKING=1 /bin/bash.exe
You may need to restart PhpStorm after this change.
For errors installing ruby or gems please check this post answer on stackoverflow.com
# Aliasses if [ -f ~/.bash_aliases ]; then . ~/.bash_aliases fi
# Rubygems alias gem='D:/tools/ruby/bin/gem'# Mailcatcher alias mc='D:/tools/ruby/bin/mailcatcher.bat'
When working in PHP you come accross situations where you need to see the current emails sent using PHP’s mail function. For this you need a a mail catcher.
The MailCatcher runs a super simple SMTP server which catches any message sent to it to display in a web interface. Run mailcatcher, set your favourite app to deliver to smtp://127.0.0.1:1025 instead of your default SMTP server, then check out http://127.0.0.1:1080 to see the mail that’s arrived so far.
Follow those steps to get you ready:
gem install mailcatcher
SMTP = 127.0.0.1 smtp_port = 1025 sendmail_from = email@example.com
This will open a browser window with mail catcher admin.
I had an error with utf-8 characters and fixed it by the following:
First stop the ruing mailcatcher from the browser (the quit button) then downgrade mailcatcher to the version without error with character encoding:
gem uninstall mailcatcher gem install mailcatcher -v 0.5.12
After some trial/error I figured out that babun doesn’t support ruby/gem installed with pact.. So I to fix this I did
Remove the ruby pact packages
pact remove ruby pact remove rubygems
The next commands must be done in the normal windows Command Prompt!
Download the Ruby [Windows-based installer](http://rubyinstaller.org/) (which installs also rubygems), during install choose to add it to PATH, so wehn you run
ruby -v ruby 2.2.3p173 (2015-08-18 revision 51636) [x64-mingw32]
It shows the version number
Add an alias to the new installed gem
Now if you run
gem -v 22.214.171.124
You get the version outputed.
Last step is to install the [Ruby Development-Kit](https://github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller/wiki/Development-Kit)
npm install -g npm-check-updates
ncu -u --packageFile package.json
npm cache clean && npm uninstall grunt-contrib-imagemin --save-dev && npm install grunt-contrib-imagemin --save-dev
Stop the country redirection by visiting
