User Interface Design Through the Ages

Being a website interface designer I tend to have a fascination with… interfaces to information. As well we happen to be in the middle of redesigning the interface to our website (and billing system) here at green-light.ca. In my ongoing education/looking for inspiration I came across this Graphical User Interface Timeline and wow look how far we’ve come…

For this posts featured image I reached a little further back to the 1950s for a picture of a UNIVAC Computer Interface.

Thunderbird 3 Litters Desktop on OS X

After upgrading to TB3 users on Mac OSX ones finds that a copy of every attachment you open is saved to the Desktop. There is a underlying problem in the Gecko engine causing this, but until then the fix is pretty simple.

  • Click Thunderbird > Preferences > Attachments
  • Select “Save files to..” click “Choose..”
  • Hit COMMAND+SHIFT+G and type in /tmp , Hit GO and then Open
  • Switch back the toggle back to “Always Ask me where to save files”

Now when you open attachments they will go to the /tmp folder.
