Source Code Management Matrix - A CVS, Subversion, and Git Reference Table

Blog categories: 

Today I had to check in into CVS after millions of years having passed since I last invoked cvs in a terminal. I was really surprised how much I forgot about the tool I was using on a daily basis, several million years ago. As I converted towards using Git mostly and need to use SVN occasionally I decided to make my own little SCM Matrix here, to remember just the basics. Of course, CVS, SVN, and Git work completely different and creating a repository in CVS has very little in common with creating a repository in Git.

Creating a bootable USB Stick on Mac OS X from an ISO Image

Blog categories: 

This is actually just a copy of an article from, but they tend to move things around and I like to have short search times. Apart from that, this works for FreeBSD and even for Windows (tested with Windows 7) as well. Sorry for this this blatant plagiarism, but it might be also to your advantage ;)

One more note: If you want to create a bootable USB stick to be used on a Mac/OS X, do not forget to format the stick with Disk Utility to HFS+ with a GUID partition table.
