EU net balance 2007 – 2013

by on Nov.22, 2011, under Misc

During 2011 many Europeans started to wonder if their taxes are patching up deficits in other EU countries. I often found myself in dispute with friends, colleagues and even family members arguing about whether a particular EU member state is a net recipient or contributor of EU funds. This document came frequently to our aid.

Success

by on Nov.13, 2011, under Misc, Sociopol, Thought

Some might disagree with this statement and I won’t quarrel neither on the definition on success nor on how it really looks like getting there. I will summarize my own personal view with the words of Moliere: “The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.”

How to: Batch create multiple folders on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

by on Nov.04, 2011, under How to

Use applescript, compile and run:

set theDestinationFolder to choose folder
set theListOfValues to {“Nome of folder 1”, “Name of folder 2”, “Name of folder 3”}
tell application “Finder”
repeat with theCurrentValue in theListOfValues
make new folder at theDestinationFolder with properties {name:theCurrentValue}
end repeat
end tell

You can also use a .csv file:

set mgCSVfile to choose file

open for access mgCSVfile
set mgList to (read mgCSVfile)
close access mgCSVfile

tell application “Finder”
repeat with x from 1 to count paragraphs of mgList
set mgFolder to container of mgCSVfile as text
set text item delimiters of AppleScript to “,”
set mgThisList to text items of paragraph x of mgList as list
set text item delimiters of AppleScript to “”

repeat with i from 1 to count mgThisList
if item i of mgThisList is not “” then
set mgSubFolder to item i of mgThisList
if (exists folder mgSubFolder of folder mgFolder) is false then
make new folder at mgFolder with properties {name:mgSubFolder}
end if
set mgFolder to (folder mgSubFolder of folder mgFolder) as alias
end if
end repeat

end repeat
end tell

Steve Jobs

The shogun of innovation, product development and user experience has moved to greener pastures. If smart & friendly technology is to be considered as a life enrichment component, humanity is up for a challenge to fill the gap of one the biggest contributors of our time.
