Write to HFSPlus Formatted iPod From Linux (Ubuntu)

If you have an ipod which was formatted in iTunes for OSX, it will most likely be formatted with the HFSPlus filesystem with journalling enabled. Ubuntu, by default can write to HFSPlus, but only if journalling is disabled. To write to your iPod, you will need to issue the following command from within the terminal in OSX...
diskutil disableJournal /Volumes/NAME-OF-IPOD


Enabling Memory Profiling for xDebug 2

XDebug has not had memory profiling for the last couple of years. I am not sure why it was taken out, but it was. The APD memory profiling seems for the last year or so to be completely broken, so that is no good as well. There is a patch over at http://xdebug.org/archives/xdebug-general/1228.html which will allow for memory profiling in xdebug.
