Yosemite 10.10.3 – F5 Big IP Edge VPN

So as any curious developer I installed the latest 10.10.3 beta Yosemite update. One issue from then on connecting to BigIP Edge Webclient would throw and SSL Connection Error, over and over…in FireFox, Safari, and Chrome.

So I had the IT administrator send me the F5-BigIP-Edge-Client for Mac, installing this solved my issue immediately. However, when I got home the issue changed…when I connected using the Client it would crash immediately…

Apparently there is a bug in this program with multiple monitors…to solve the issue I changed my Preferences to the following:

Hope this helps you if you happen to be in the same unusual boat as me…

Minecraft Speedhack Mac OS X (Clock Control Alternative)

Hello All,
I played minecraft tonight and wanted to test my mac os x coding skills.  I made a quick applescript that is a complete undetected speedhack for minecraft multiplayer. This was tested on Mac OS X 10.6.7 but should work on any 10.5-10.6 Mac OS X computer.

Attached is the application it runs at something like 100x speed I can easily slow this down since 100x is a little ridiculous but it is 1:45AM and i’m sleepy.   Perhaps if asked nicely i’ll upload the script in editable form.

EDIT: I apparently cannot upload a .app so here is the Script.  Don’t go stealing it and claiming it for your own…because that’s just rude you 14 year old little kid.

(* Loop forever!!! the only way to quit is to stop or to kill process *)
(* Gets the time *)
set {year:y, month:m, day:d, hours:h, minutes:k, seconds:s} to (current date)

(* Adds a second *)
set s to s + 1
(* Zero pads the times so it can run the next command *)
set secs to text -2 thru -1 of ("00" & s)
set hrs to text -2 thru -1 of ("00" & h)
set mins to text -2 thru -1 of ("00" & k)

(* Runs date command as admin (requires password) this updates the system clock *)
do shell script "sudo date " & {hrs, mins} & "." & secs with administrator privileges
end try

(* This is the only editable number, If you want to make this speedhack slower this is the number you change.
2x speed hack = delay 1
3x Speed hack = delay 0.5
delay 0.01
end repeat

This re-syncs the time....I didn't finish this because you can never get down here
do shell script "sudo ntpdate time.apple.com" with administrator privileges
end try

iPhone 2G/3G/3GS connection timeout issue

On monday i had a very strange occurence, no matter how long i waited nothing involving data would load.  Safari would just spin my data connection and nothing was coming.  Maps would never load images and directions, well you can forget those.  Basically i couldn’t do anything using my iPhones connection (including twitter, FML, facebook, etc.).  Today one of my friends had the same issue…so here is the solution.

Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network

Let it reboot and enjoy.

No high five there AT&T

iPhone 3GS re-orient maps to your current direction

A new and documented feature that apple added with the iPhone 3GS is the compass, something that is also documented but that i missed is that in Maps (Google Maps) on the iPhone if you tap your current location and then tap it again the Map will re-orient to the direction you are facing and you’ll see a ‘headlight’ type direction coming out of the blue dot (i’ve named it blue).  This is pretty awesome and what i was wanting to see from the compass.

Compass + maps = gps in a new way
Compass + maps = gps in a new way

Thanks again apple.

iPhone 3GS – Hands on

This is what you should expect from apple (and any large multi-billion dollar company…honest), making a great product better.

However I got my hands on one of the new iPhone 3GS and one of the most advertised features, Voice Control is as useless as it ever was on any other phone.  Thus far it has thought “Riza Vergara” was “Lisa Computer”, and “Mom” was “Carl White”.  Luckily for us this might be something apple will be looking into.  Until then it will be nothing but a sad day.  On a side note to this, no voice control really “works” they all sorta work, they are a novelty item something all phones have and that the people who use them must be the same people i listen read me books.  So no blame apple, just fix it.

update: nvm about the voice control seems like it works sometimes maybe it had to get to know my voice…after testing for around 10 minutes i found it to work pretty damn well on harser sounding names.

This being said its other awesome new features, Speed aren’t a load of donkey doo. The iPhone 3GS (S for Speed) is sporting a faster processor and twice the ram as its predecessor and because of this it is noticeably zippier.

The compass is nice, and will be even nicer when it is implemented in other apps (like GPS, tomtom!! come on tomtom! seriously tomtom).

The video and pictures are purely amazing and are a welcome addition.

Overall i’d say this is well worth the $300 for a 32GB iPhone 3GS the speed alone makes it worth it for any of us true techies.  However if you don’t get the AT&Ts helpful hand price then perhaps you should hold off, unless of course you know how to ebay your old iphone 3G and get about $300 easily…then go get a new iPhone already…didn’t you hear they’re out!

Not going to waste the time uploading images…this phone is a twin to it’s younger brother the iPhone 3G and thereby if you don’t know what it looks like you’ve been under a rock for a long long long long while.

High five apple high five…
