Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
When copying a file between one system and another, occasionally both the permissions and owner for the files will be incorrect. You may need to change the owner of the file because the file is unable to be edited by the user due to permissions issues. While you could mess with the Finder’s “Get Info” panel to make these changes, there’s a better, and more simple way to change a large group of files at the same time. We’ll rely on the “chown” command to change the owner of a specified group of files, right from the command line.
Most people don’t like being stuck with the task of taking down meeting notes (often referred to as “minutes”), mainly because you're either writing them down on a piece of paper or typing them out in Microsoft Word, only to have to go back, reformat, and then send them out to the appropriate persons. Even writing that sentence makes the task sound droll. Boring!
Luckily, a new web app is here to help. Ta-da! In this post, we’ll show you how to capture and send meeting notes through the free Minutes.io service.
