Upgrading to new git version on Mac OSX

March 14, 2013 1 comment

Mac OSX comes with git pre-installed. You can find the installation here: /usr/bin.

To check its version, type the following:

$ git --version


To upgrade to the latest version of git, do the following:

  1. Download and install latest git from http://git-scm.com. This will install it in /usr/local/git folder. Make sure it did that.
  2. Open terminal and run the following
    $ vi ~/.bash_profile

  3. Go to insert mode (press "i" on your keyboard)
  4. Paste the following
    export PATH=/usr/local/git/bin:$PATH

  5. If there already stuff in .bash_profile file, just append "/usr/local/git/bin" appropriately. For example, in my case, the android sdk path was already set in it. So it was appended at the end as shown below:
    export PATH=/Users/sukamat/android-dev/sdk/platform-tools:/Users/sukamat/android-dev/sdk/tools:/usr/local/git/bin:$PATH

  6. Save the file.
  7. Quit terminal
  8. Reopen terminal
  9. Type the following:
    $ git --version

It should show the version you installed.

How the awesome VFX was achieved in Inception?

Inception

Paul Franklin takes us through the machinations of Christopher Nolan’s hot mind-bender.
By Bill Desowitz

A lot has already been written about the relationship between dreams and movies in Inception. At its core, though, it’s really about the all-consuming struggle to create an original work. So imagine Double Negative’s challenge in trying to help visualize multiple dream states from director Chris Nolan’s furtive imagination all interacting together.

It all began with architecture. "Whether it’s through the manipulation of structures to show the power of the dreamers, as in the folding streets of Paris, or in the crumbling towers of Limbo, which
