Change Case with OS X Services | creativebits™
While I'm a veteran OS X user and I only recently discovered the highly useful Services feature in the OS. The Services menu is always found under the active application's name in the menubar and can be configured to match your exact needs.
For example I frequently get text from clients in various formats and I need to change the case of the copy. Some applications have built-in change case command and there are websites that help you with the task such as convert case.

Mining Input Grammars from Dynamic Taints
Knowing which part of a program processes which parts of an in-
put can reveal the structure of the input as well as the structure of
the program. In a
for instance, the protocol
, the host
and the path
would be handled by different functions and
stored in different variables. Given a set of sample inputs, we
dynamic tainting
to trace the data flow of each input character,
and aggregate those input fragments that would be handled by the
same function into lexical and syntactical entities. The result is a
context-free grammar
that reflects valid input structure. In its eval-
uation, our
prototype automatically produced readable
and structurally accurate grammars for inputs like
, spread-
sheets or configuration files. The resulting grammars not only allow
simple reverse engineering of input formats, but can also directly
serve as input for test generators.

Dan Leech's Mac and iPhone setup – The Sweet Setup
Who are you and what do you do?
I’m Dan Leech. I live in Bath, UK, and I’m a systems designer for healthcare research company Bath ASU. My work involves researching, specifying, and creating new software and processes that make the delivery of medicines to patients safer, more efficient, and more affordable.
What is your current setup?
I use a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2013). It’s a great machine with plenty of capacity to see me through the next couple of years. After a decade of using 15-inch Macs, I decided to downsize as an experiment. I haven’t once missed the larger size, and I wouldn’t go back.
