Locked disk won’t mount on mac os x mavericks

I’ve just had the issue that the disk utility would not unlock my encrypted backup disk no matter how often I’d hit the mount button.

These two little commands did the job just fine:

>> diskutil corestorage list
>> diskutil corestorage unlockVolume UUID -stdinpassphrase

where you exchange the UUID with the one you actually got using the first command

Make .htaccess files visible in Transmit FTP

make htaccess files visible in transmit
Transmit is a powerful and user friendly FTP tool for MacOS. Besides moving files, it is sometimes necessary to modify the .htaccess file.
Default settings in Transmit will hide the .htaccess files. To solve this issue, a very quick solution is the following:

Click onto View in the menu bar of Transmit and select Show Invisible Files or just press Shift+CMD+B

Transmit FTP can be found in the Mac App Store: Transmit – Panic, Inc.

Enable widgets in your wordpress theme

In order to activate wordpress widgets while creating you own theme, you need to add these lines of code to your functions.php file:

 if ( function_exists('register_sidebar') ) register_sidebar(); 

To load the selected widgets from the backend properly, your sidebar.php file needs the following code:

if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar')
|| !dynamic_sidebar() ) :

Put this code where you want the widgets to be displayed in your sidebar structure.

Also make sure that the shown php code in the files is encapsulated in <php ... ?> tags.

Restore iTunes Library

During complete new setup of a PC or Mac you’re facing the problem of restoring your iTunes library with all your information.

Just copying your user data + media in the old path won’t lead to success.

Choose the place of the library


Via alt-click onto the iTunes logo it is possible to choose a library:

itunes select library

A click on Choose allows you to assess a place for the library and brings your music plus ratings to your Mac.


On Windows it’s a shift-doubleclick that makes you choose the place.

It’s important to choose the file iTunes Library.itl instead of just a folder.

Now you’re good to go!
