Specifically, to boot someone from a group chat, type:
This will remove the specified skyper user from the group chat and prevent them from getting back in. Please note that you need to type their username, not their display name. You can find their username by hovering over their display name in the contact list or viewing their profile.
Everyone in the chat – including the person you just booted – will see a message that you have ejected and banned said user, so it’s not a secret, but it does the job.
Everyone once in a while things go awry for me on OS X.
Symptoms often include hot corners suddenly no longer working, and spaces not switching when I switch applications.
Turns out the restarting your dock can fix this in a jiffy.
I’m a command line kind of guy, so open up terminal and type this in to restart the dock:
killall -KILL Dock
It looks pretty scary (“Kill! KILL!”), but all it’s doing is telling OS X to kill the Dock process for you, which it will auto-restart. Your dock will disappear for a moment and then come back in working order.
This evening I was experimenting with adding custom variables to my Google Analytics tracking code, but when I checked Google’s custom variable documentation, it didn’t match the analytics code that I had.
Google Analytics changes their code for you to copy and paste quite often, seemingly every time I setup a new site to track.
The latest version of the analytics code that I was given used a new format, notably:
var _gaq = _gaq || ;
var ga = document.createElement('script');
ga.async = true;
ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' :
'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script');
The docs say to put the _setCustomVar code in before pageTracker._trackPageview() … but I no longer have that older style setup.
After a bit of digging around, I came up with a solution from documentation on the _gaq Global Object. The _setCustomVar code can be added as follows:
