Fix Postfix sendmail in Mountain Lion

If you’ve upgraded to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, you’ve probably started getting a fatal error in your Apache logs when attempting to send emails, via the PHP mail() function or otherwise:

sendmail: fatal: chdir /Library/Server/Mail/Data/spool: No such file or directory

It looks like this is happening because Apple changed the Postfix configuration in Mountain Lion to reflect a new location for the mail spool, but never actually moved the spool.

Luckily, Apple left the original configuration files in place. Run this command to resolve the issue:

sudo cp -f /etc/postfix/main.cf~orig /etc/postfix/main.cf

This replaces the new (incorrect) configuration file with the original (correct) one.

Full credit to this Apple Support Community post by mfremont for correctly identifying the root cause of the issue. Hopefully Apple will fix this issue in an upcoming OS X release.

bechase asked: I'm a diehard NYR fan and absolutely loathe the Flyers. That being said, while watching that play with McDonagh in the crease, the views NBC provided did not appear to show clear evidence of McDonagh placing his hand over the puck. More likely though, I was so overrun with emotion at the PS call that I was unable or unwilling to admit it may have indeed been correct. Your play by play makes it clear that the refs did make the right call, even if they made some poor ones earlier. So, thanks dude.

That’s awesome. I completely agree that there were some brutal calls and non-calls, both ways I think. In the end, I’m just glad it was a great hockey game, and I’m super happy New York came back to win—I like both teams, but how could a guy not root for Torts, Jags, and Talbot? Go Rangers!

It’s sad that somebody needs to post this, but apparently somebody needs to post this.

This is NHL Rule 63.5:

No defending player, except the goalkeeper, will be permitted to fall on the puck, hold the puck, pick up the puck, or gather the puck into the body or hands when the puck is within the goal crease. For infringement of this rule, play shall immediately be stopped and a penalty shot shall be ordered against the offending team.

This is a puck in the crease.

For a Father’s Day promotion, IKEA Sydney created “Mänland.”

After dropping off the kids at Småland, ladies can leave their whiny men at Mänland and shop in peace!

Mänland has televisions, Xbox 360s, foosball and pinball tables, and plenty of sofas. And just like the child care centre, you’re given a pager that will kindly remind you to pick up your overgrown toddler before you leave.

All of which begs the question: How long until Best Buy builds Nâgland?

Anonymous asked: wear r duh neu pics?

I know, I know. I suck! I’ve never denied it.

An enormous project for Mattel has been kicking my ass at work for weeks. It’s easily the biggest project I’ve ever worked on; so it’s been given my nearly undivided attention for the last/next several weeks.

Plus, my roommate moved to Singapore, I took his bedroom, my other roommate took my bedroom, and his girlfriend moved in. And we have new furniture, a new office space, and nowhere near enough time to get everything moved and built and painted and cleaned and finished.

Until home is in one piece and this major work project is finished, the camera will have to wait.

To Cathal Kelly:
You had the opportunity to write about why suicide is the leading cause of death for young men in our country.
Instead, you used the still-warm body of a dead husband and father as your personal soapbox on fighting in hockey.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
