I use Paste Master as an advanced clipboard manager. It allows me to keep up to 90 items in my clipboard and also allows me to paste them unformatted so I don’t have to copy them to an ASCII text editor first. It would not come up one day and wanted to restart it without the OS (operating system). Under System Preferences, uncheck and check “Enable Paste Master” and that will restart it. Since it is a checkbox, it might appear to only take effect when the OS restart, but it takes immediate effect.

If you you receive the following with a Ruby on Rails site:

Ruby On Rails Error:

An alternative to the built-in search/find in TextMate is the Grep in Project command for Textmate. An even better alternative is AckMate. It can be downloaded here. Unzip the file, double click the file, and restart TextMate to fully install. After installing, go “Edit > Find > Search Project with AckMate…”

AckMate searches iteratively so that each match is displayed as it’s found and can even be clicked while searching in the background. The Mac keyboard shortcut is Control-Option-Command F (three adjacent keys to the left of the spacebar)

I received the following message when accessing my Git repo:
git clone git@github.com:patelc75/gitrepo.git
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/webuser/.ssh/gitrepo/.git/
Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

Then I did the following to debug

Use SSH With Verbose Output To Debug:

ssh -v git@github.com

And found out the permissions of the ssh key was the problem. The following fixed the problem.

Modify Permissions On Public SSH Key:

sudo chmod 644 id_rsa.pub
