Modifying file upload settings for WordPress

In a recent post, I wanted to upload a Stuffit file with a .sitx extension, but had a problem using the upload features in WordPress (error was “file type does not meet security guidelines”). After some searching, I found this article describing how to fix this problem (modifying wp-includes/functions.php to add ‘sitx’ => ‘application/x-stuffit’). Once I updated the file, I was able to upload the Stuffit file successfully.

Test-Driven Development Using AppleScript

MacTech Magazine recently published my two-part article titled “Test-Driven Development Using AppleScript”. In the April 2008 issue, part 1 gave an overview of test-driven development techniques using the AppleScript language, then gave a short example of those techniques using the ASUnit testing framework. In the May 2008 issue, the ASUnit framework was used to develop a number guessing game using test-driven development techniques.

Back issues are available from MacTech magazine (issues 24.04 and 24.05). The following are the web links contained within the articles:

Part 1 (April 2008):

Part 2 (May 2008):

Finally, I am linking a file of the script listings from the two articles (Stuffit Expander required to expand the scripts).
