QuickLook Text file's without an extension

I love QuickLook, it's the fastest way to peak and copy from files. But not all file's open in QuickLook and text files need the .txt extension for QuickLook to work. Lucky you can extend QuickLook with plugins and QLStephen has the excellent QuickLook plugin that lets you view plain text files without a file extension. Files like: README, INSTALL, CHANGELOG, INFO etc...
And even text files with extensions like .info .install .inc are readable! Great work :) http://whomwah.github.io/qlstephen/

iPhoto Photos cleanup

When you started with OS X Photos it will create a new library (Photos Library.photoslibrary) and migrate your old iPhoto library (iPhoto Library.migratedphotolibrary). So when you are fine with using only Photos you can safely delete it iPhoto and the iPhoto library to free up some harddisk space. To be save I moved the iPhoto Library.migratedphotolibrary to an external drive.

Save space (and time) with your Time Machine backups:

- Open a Finder window and go to your Mac's Hard Drive
- Open System Preferences > Time Machine, then click Options
- Drag the System folder from your Mac's hard drive into the "Exclude these items from backup" section
- OS X will prompt you to exclude other related items, including system applications. You probably don't need those core items since they come preinstalled in OS X anyway, and your initial and potentially future backups won't take as much time.
