Sometimes the apple UI top bar menu will freeze, god willing, not all that often, but when it does it’s handy to know what to do force it to reload.
Simply pop open a terminal window and run this command:-
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
Sometimes you may wish to see how much memory your application is eating up on your amazon ec2 instance (or indeed any other linux box) you can do this by running the command below, at terminal (over SSH).
You’ll get something like this pop up.
root@ip-101-101-101-101 ec2-user]# free -m total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 594 565 28 0 3 73 -/+ buffers/cache: 489 105 Swap: 0 0 0
The important part is the second line which will give you the total free memory after everything else.
Showing those pesky hidden files like ~/.ssh/ couldn’t be easier.
Firstly open up terminal and run the following command
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
Then to make the changes take effect run this
This will reboot Finder. If sometime in the future you wish to change it back just run the first command using ‘FALSE’ instead of TRUE.
