Subject: I have a questions about Mozilla Rust Seattle Meetup?

Hi Jon

I hope this email finds you well.

Are you in charge of event organization for Mozilla Rust Seattle Meetup? I am not sure if you're the right person to speak with. I was a researcher in computer science in UCSD and started the company to provide a mobile app to make organizers' job easier and more efficient by helping the event run smoother, and giving attendees better networking experiences.

XBMC crashes. Use this. #tvops

Keep XBMC Alive on OS X

XBMC is great, but it kinda randomly crashes a lot. There's nothing worse than turning on your TV and seeing that XBMC isn't running anymore. It's even worse when its your significant other or roomate and you're out of town. #tvops.

So just install this launchd script to keep XBMC always running. This will launch it on boot, and if it crashes, it'll re-launch it.

Install

mkdir ~/Library/LaunchAgents
