No only you can monitor you Mac, but also for other OS (Linux, Solaris & FreeBSD) as well. Assuming you’ve download the iStats app from iTunes App Store, here’s how you can access and monitor your FreeBSD server via these simple steps.

  3. cd istatd-0.5.7 #go into the uncompressed directory
  4. ./configure #start compiling
  5. make
  6. make install
  7. mkdir -p /var/{run,cache}/istat
  8. adduser istat #add user istat
  9. chown istat:istat /var/{run,cache}/istat #set permission of user & group for the created folder
  10. vi /etc/istat.conf #remember to change the server code (your password to access iStat)
  11. /usr/local/bin/istatd -d #start the iStat as daemon

iPhone OS 3.0 at last! Available on 17th June 2009 :)

At last after the long wait, OS 3.0 is finally here. Cut Copy Paste, MMS, Landscape Keyboard, Voice Memos, among the key features will be included in the new version. Hoorey!!!


Although Apple also have launched the iPhone 3G S claiming that it’s faster, I still can’t look for any better reason to switch to it even for it’s 32GB storage & faster speed compared to previous iPhone 2G & 3G.
