Workstation tweaks

In workstations, file indexing is not always what you want…

Disable in OS X:

launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist

Win 7

-> services.msc -> Windows Search Service -> stop + disable


Win 7, other special tweaks for special cases

  • system protection: off
  • powercfg /hibernate off
  • Pagfile.sys (manually set size & place)

Strain relief for DSLR tethered shooting

Goodbye (hopefully?) to broken USB connectors in your camera body used for tethered shooting?

At least with Canon 5D bodies broken USB is repaired expensively by changing the whole motherboard of the camera.
