  1. This all happened a few minutes ago. Now alfred is fine. And I opened activity monitor it says it has a 0,1% CPU usage. Do you still need a sample process file? Also just to put in more context just now I downloaded a tool called: streamlink. https://github.com/streamlink/streamlink People use it for watching stream on their own media player (VLC and such) and when compares to using browser (watching twitch.tv for example) a lot of people said it uses a lot less cpu power. And I installed this tool. Before that even installed python on my mac. Then when using it watching stream, python is running in the background and at this point of time , alfred's cpu usage started rocket jumping. I hope I clearly explained everything. Just to tell you the whole story. Does this have anything to do with the python script that was running at the background??
  2. I was watching some stream and just doing some web browsing. Then all of a sudden my macbook pro's fan started kicking up. Here is a screenshot. Why is alfred using up so much resources? My alfred version is v3.3.1 [806]. OS X version the latest.
  3. I will normally have a lot of different sublime windows open. The problem is if I type in "sublime" it will open the existing window instead of a new blank window. How do I modify the current workflow to set the default as "open new sublime window" instead of just opening sublime text. Or is it better for me to just create a new workflow so when I type in sublime text (in default) it will open a new blank sublime text window . when holding command it will open the existing sublime window. What do you guys think?? How do I make it???
  4. Thanks. It worked. For anyone who is too lazy to do it themselves, here is how to do it.
  5. Why does it show password that has 11 characters when I typed in pwlen 10?? Could you narrow it down to 10 characters only?? Or I misunderstand the method you are using?
  6. I have an external HDD connected to my Mac. It would be nice to type in "backup" then time machine will started to start a new backup.
  7. Dude... thank you so much... It worked like a charm... I got a feeling that I may have to ask for more workflows down the road.... maybe I can donate to you some money??? I feel bad for you to do this for me... Edit: I donated two dollars through packal. Hope you received it/ Thanks.. Will ask more sometime in the future.
  8. I felt that I am just here to make other people do stuff for me... I have no idea how to make workflows... however I need a workflow that makes safari opens copied url and then directly jumped to reading mode. So I can copy everything into evernote later. I have tried to use evernote workflow, but sometimes it is not as clean as doing it separately. Here is what I normally do: copy whatever url I need. use alfred to make safari opens a new window. paste that url in safari window. switch to reading mode. copy the whole page. What I wanted to achieve: copy the url I need. open the new workflow. copy the whole page. I want alfred to make safari open the last thing (in this case, a url) in my clipboard and then switched to reading mode automatically. You can ask me more questions if I did not make myself clear.
  9. Thanks! Didn't expect someone will visit this thread after so long!
  10. Thanks... I did not know that I have to key in https://
  11. I can type in the url but it still opens a blank page.
  12. er... sorry I tried but did not manage to get it working. Here is what I created, (copied some template online.) CW for new chrome window and when you hold command key , it will go into the incognito mode. I wanna add an option so that I can type in the url also. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4Oj-Aylh-ymWkh2UVVrNl9kejQ/view?usp=sharing
  13. Here is one workflow I made. There is an online article about how to make one workflow that opens a new chrome window. However I tried to change it to open safari and firefox , but all failed... https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4Oj-Aylh-ymZU5wczVkc2QyRk0
  14. Wait... this does not open new chrome window... instead it opens a new tab in the existing window... how am I gonna solve this??? I want it to open an url in a completely new window. Okay... how about this, could you teach me to create a workflow (keyword based, not hotkey based) that opens a new browser tab in a completely new window. And if I hold down command key while doing this, it will open the link in my clipboard. Sorry for being so picky. I'm gonna go google it 1st.
  15. Wow... Thanks!! I just got into a little bit of programming, HTML css and stuff. Trying to get used to mac and hopefully all these small tips and tricks I learn can one day give my workflow a little boost! ! And naming keywords is kind of ... tough.... currently using alt+c/f/s Thanks for the help!
