Although I've been running Mountain Lion for many months now I'm still finding the odd quirk or unexplained behaviour that gets in the way of basic productivity.
The latest has been some odd duplication occurring in the 'Open With' menu, where some apps were duplicated as many as five times. Scrolling to pick my text editor of choice every time was getting to be quite irritating.
Anyhow, it turns out this is easy to fix, just fire up Terminal.app and enter the below in a single line:
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
And relaunch finder by Control+Option+Right Clicking on the Finder icon in the dock and selecting 'relaunch'.
I've written several times about the ratholes I can find myself spiralling into as I over bake/tweak my blog. I never quite find the time to get on with the posts I've got sat in various states of draft and can quickly lose focus.
Technically this change is yet another example.
But it's also an important departure as I've practically no means to tweak or poke this site. All I can do is draft and publish.
It will be interesting to see if I can finally get on and write, or just find a new excuse :-)
