How to attach a bike helmet to a backpack using a Ball Bungee Canopy Tie

I'm sure this method will work with any number of helmets and backpacks, but in case you're curious, here's all the materials I used:

* Ball Bungee — http://www.amazon.com/SE-Ball-Bungee-Canopy-Straps/dp/B000QA7ZIY/

* Helmet (T2 Torch) — http://torchapparel.com/collections/t2-bike-helmet

* Backpack (Brenthaven MetroLite) — http://www.amazon.com/Brenthaven-MetroLite-Laptop-Ultrabook-Backpack/dp/B001T9NGNY

Behold, my first (and possibly only) Mac App. It's basically a compiled AppleScript which does the same thing as clicking the Keychain Access menulet and selects "Lock Screen".

The advantage being that though you can't create a hotkey to select that shortcut menu item, you can create a hotkey to run this app.

Based largely on the Objective-C code here:  http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/80058/lock-screen-command-one-liner/123738?sgp=2#123738

Today my "media keys" on my mac stopped working. Specifically the Previous, Play/Pause, and Next buttons. All the other "special" keys worked, just not those 3.

Tried a bunch of things. No luck.

UPDATE This was caused by Chrome / Google Music Extension!

http://www.omgchrome.com/chrome-google-music-media-keys/

Open the Chrome app menu
Select Tools > Extensions
Click the ‘Keyboard Shortcuts’ link at the bottom of the page
Find the Google Play Music section
Change any specified media key options from ‘Global’ to ‘In Chrome’

Or you can disable/remove the app/extension from Chrome entirely:
Open the Chrome app menu
Select Tools > Extensions
Find ‘Google Play Music’
Uncheck the ‘Enabled’ box OR click the trashcan to remove

Hopefully this helps someone out there on the internets someday.

That is all.

I'm pretty sure Axe Body Spray had a similar advertising campaign...

How many bars on General Veers' uniform?

Bonus: how many of what color(s)?

First right answer gets a bottle of gundark repellent.
