When you are getting the spinning beachball on Mac OS X System Applications/Tools, like the Finder when trying to connector to a failed network share. Your solution is the always winning Terminal. Start Terminal through menu or spotlight, and try the following commands.
The Finder crashed:
killall -KILL Finder
The Dock crashed:
killall -KILL Dock
Spaces crashed: killall -KILL Dock
The Menubar crashed/refuses to be clickable: killall -KILL SystemUIServer
The services should automatically restart after they have been killed. If they dont, you might have to reboot your computer. If this option is not available through menus, get back to Terminal and give the following command: sudo shutdown -r now – provide your Admin password and your machine should be restarting).
Ever had the need to quickly encrypt a file?
We have previously shown you a tool called Cryptor for simple Encryption/Decryption on OSX.
In this post we will show you how to use OpenSSL.
With OpenSSL you can perform quick and easy encrypt/decrypt of files from the Command Line.
As long as OpenSSL is installed on your system, you can use the same examples as below on any OS (Windows,Linux,OSX).
