Portable TextWrangler (kinda)

Terminal is great, but sometimes I'm too lazy to use vi and editing lots of shell scripts is waaaayyyyy more efficient with TextWrangler. I use this small dropbox hack so I can sync my stationery and settings across multiple macs.
#+ Portable TextWrangler

#* Formatted date & time string.
FORMATTED_DATE=`/bin/date "+%Y-%m-%d%H%M%S"`

#+ Remove it from /Applications (optional, just so you can replace it with a ln to your dropbox)
sudo /bin/mv -f /Applications/ ~/.Trash/
#* Add a link in /Applications to your DropBox copy
sudo /bin/ln -Fs ~/DropBox/ /Applications/

#* Archive existing folder
/bin/mv -f ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextWrangler{,.$FORMATTED_DATE}
#+ Create cloud app support folder
/bin/mkdir -p ~/DropBox/TextWrangler
#+ Link cloud app support folder to your local workstation (this contains your stationery etc etc)
sudo /bin/ln -Fs ~/DropBox/TextWrangler ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextWrangler

#+ Create cloud app support folder for your preferences
/bin/mkdir -p ~/DropBox/TextWrangler/Preferences
#* Placeholder so your prefs go to the cloud
/usr/bin/defaults write ~/DropBox/TextWrangler/Preferences/com.barebones.textwrangler Placeholder true
#* Link cloud pref to your local workstation
sudo /bin/ln -Fs ~/DropBox/TextWrangler/Preferences/com.barebones.textwrangler.plist ~/Library/Preferences/com.barebones.textwrangler.plist

In summary, here is my method for creating a Mac OS X 10.7.3 Standard Operating Environment "SOE" Image.

Overview The goal is to create a "MASTER" non-booted SOE that can be used with multiple models and it multiple sites with different local requirements.

My intention is to use this "MASTER" image in a manual restore procedure due to the fact netboot facilities cannot be made available to all the sites I support however the DMG files are netboot compatible.

TFTP on Mac OS X 10.7 shell script

I've just started getting into Cisco support a little more. It's my goal to eventually specialise (its probably the first time I've found something in I.T. support that I don't eventually get bored with ). Since I've got about 1 of each OS I need make sure I can perform my job on anything. Was working on my macbook pro and needed to download some router configs. Give tftp a kick on Mac OS X 10.7 #!/bin/bash #* #+ A quick script to enable/disable tftp (for use with cisco devices). #+ Usage: on NO_ARGS=0 if [ $# -eq "$NO_ARGS" ] # no arguments? then /bin/echo "Disabling tftp." #+ Always unload, just to be on the safe side. sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tftp.plist #+ Cleanup any files so they aren't floating around ;) /bin/echo "Removing default tftp files." sudo /bin/rm -f /private/tftpboot/running-config sudo /bin/rm -f /private/tftpboot/startup-config sudo /bin/rm -f /private/tft…
