Installing MySQL on a MacBook

For some reason my old MacBook didn’t have MySQL installed.

Here’s the install process:

1. Brew did not work ‘cos it wasn’t installed

brew install mysql
-bash: brew: command not found

2. So, I went to install brew

ruby -e “$(curl -fsSkL”
curl: (1) Protocol https not supported or disabled in libcurl

3. So, I went to install curl with SSL

Error: The following dependencies failed to build: curl-ca-bundle

Before reporting a bug, first run the command again with the -d flag to get complete output.

4. So I updated port with

sudo port selfupdate

This was successful but recommended this:

The ports tree has been updated. To upgrade your installed ports, you should run
port upgrade outdated

How to develop / migrate apps for the iPhone 5

1. Set a 4-inch launch image for your app called Default-568h@2x.png

This is how you get 1136 px screen height (without it, you will get 960 px with black margins on top and bottom).

This should be enough.

2. If not, adjust your view layouts with proper auto resizing masks or look into Auto Layout if you only want to support >= iOS 6.

If you need to some specific resizing then check the height of [[UIScreen mainScreen] bounds] (or applicationFrame, but then you need to consider status bar height if it's present) as there seems to be no specific API for that.
