Automatically Set $GOROOT variable with Homebrew

If you are using Go with Homebrew on OSX, add this to your ~/.profile or ~/.bash_profile to set the $GOROOT automatically:

GOVERSION=$(brew list go | head -n 1 | cut -d '/' -f 6)
export GOROOT=$(brew --prefix)/Cellar/go/$GOVERSION

Camera Not Working on Mavericks

I had an issue after upgrading to Mavericks where Photo Booth, Facetime, and Skype could not detect my camera, and kept telling me there were no connected cameras.

I found a fix on the Apple discussion forum that works, and I will share for anyone else that might be affected:

  • Quit all open apps that may try to use the FaceTime camera
  • Open Terminal, found in the /Applications/Utilities directory in OS X
  • Enter the following command string exactly, then hit return:
  • sudo killall VDCAssistant
  • Enter the administrator password when requested, this is required to execute a command with superuser privileges as prefixed by sudo
  • Relaunch the app that was attempting to use the camera
