Powerthirst has been officially ripped off by Energy Country Ford Lincoln Mercury, in Port Arthur, Texas.
This sucks a big one for adorable sketch troupe Picnicface, who were responsible for the original and are apparently getting nothing for it. Also, dammit!, why did I not find out about Picnicface until after I went to Halifax?!
lipo (aptly named) is a utility that manipulates universal binaries in Mac OS X. A lot of (almost all) programs these days ship, or download as “Universal”, meaning they have binary code that both the powerpc and the intel chips can understand. But since you probably don’t care about one of the two, you want to use lipo to “thin” down your binaries.
For example if you wanted to thin the “Stickies” application to only contain intel (i386) code:
cd /Applications lipo Stickies.app/Contents/MacOS/Stickies -thin i386 -output Stickies.app/Contents/MacOS/Stickies.i386 cd Stickies.app/Contents/MacOS/ rm Stickies mv Stickies.i386 Stickies
