13-Inch MacBook Air For Sale

My wife is selling her beautiful Macbook Air laptop (Mid 2012). It’s equipped with a 13-inch monitor, 1.8ghz Intel Core i5, 256GB solid state drive, 4GB of DDR3 ram, Intel HD Graphics 4000 and a 720P FaceTime camera. The body and screen are in GREAT condition.


When developing on a local machine, you’ll sometimes need to gain access to files that OSX Mavericks hides by default. To show hidden files, open up and type:

defaults write AppleShowAllFiles -boolean true ; killall Finder

The command should run without error and restart finder. You will now see hidden files and folders. To reverse the changes, open again and type:

defaults write AppleShowAllFiles -boolean false ; killall Finder

Simple & customizable one-page website template made for Twitch streamers.

final-v3Twitchie is a simple, beautiful and customizable one-page website template made for Twitch streamers that have no website coding experience. It’s designed to focus on what streamers care about most: their channel. At the same time it points visitors to the social networks that streamers update and connect with their audience on.


Twitchie is very simple and has 2 visual states: Online and Offline. When you’re online it tells your website visitors that you’re live, what game you’re playing, how many people are watching, displays your stream title and gives them a big pulsing button to push to view your stream. When you’re offline, it tells your website visitors that you’re offline, displays your offline message and gives them a big button to visit your channel. However, whether you’re online or offline, it will always display links to your social media.

  • Simple, beautiful design that focuses on your channel.
  • Responsive design (desktop, tablets and phones).
  • Updates automatically on every page load.
  • Super easy to visually customize to fit your channel.
  • Dynamically pulls your twitch avatar, steam status, title, game and # of viewers.
  • Can display a custom message when your offline.
  • Links to your favorite social media accounts.
  • Links to your favorite donation or tip service.
  • Fullscreen image or video background.
  • Super fast & lightweight.

Setup & Configuration

Setting up this template requires no website coding experience. Simply upload the files to your web server, open the config file with a text editor, follow the instructions and hit save. Your done. The template will then dynamically build your page using the data you put in the config file. You never have to touch html, css, or javascript. Here are the options you can configure:

  • Twitch channel
  • Custom display name
  • Site title tagline
  • Site description (or it pulls your twich bio automatically)
  • Site keywords
  • Accent color (or it’s pulled automatically from your twitch profile background color)
  • Custom offline status (For when your channel is offline)
  • 17 available social networks (Twitter, Facebook, Steam, Steam Group, YouTube, Flickr, Github, G+, Instagram, Pinterest, Reddit, SoundCloud, Tumblr, Vine, Skype, Bandcamp, Twitch Messenger, Forum Link, Deviant Art, Email)
  • 8 affiliate link, tip and donation services (StreamTip, ImRaising, TwitchAlerts, DonationTracker, Amazon Affiliate Link, Patreon, Deepbot, Extra-Life, Steam Gift & Trade)
  • Image or video background (YouTube)
  • Overlay opacity (Layer of black on top of the image or video to keep text legible)
  • Google Analytics


To show how easy and flexible Twitchie is, I’ve created a few demo pages for some of my favorite streamers by only changing 3-5 variables in each config file.
