sudo installer -pkg installer-osx-amd64.pkg -target LocalSystem ...where  installer-osx-amd64.pkg is the package file that is installed and LocalSystem  the default installation target.

indeed, as target "... -target /"  would work too, ;).

Probably one of my best decisions was to dump .NET in favor of Java, 5 years ago.
 
Let's explain why .Net, a framework which has no reason to be jealous of Java EE, is victim of Microsoft's lack of vision.
Recently, I've been airing Java's dirty laundry [1]. Some folks took my position that Java was trailing .Net technically [2] to mean that I thought .Net was winning. Nothing of the kind -- in a number of important ways, .Net is a failure. Think back a decade or so ago. As you may recall, .

Surprise?! 
 
The packet capture shown in these new NSA slides shows internal database replication traffic for the anti-hacking system I worked on for over two years. Specifically, it shows a database recording a user login as part of this system:

http://googleblog.blogspot.ch/2013/02/an-update-on-our-war-against-account.html

Recently +Brandon Downey, a colleague of mine on the Google security team, said (after the usual disclaimers about being personal opinions and not speaking for the firm which I repeat here) - "fuck these guys":

https://plus.google.com/108799184931623330498/posts/SfYy8xbDWGG

I now join him in issuing a giant Fuck You to the people who made these slides. I am not American, I am a Brit, but it's no different - GCHQ turns out to be even worse than the NSA.

We designed this system to keep criminals out. There's no ambiguity here. The warrant system with skeptical judges, paths for appeal, and rules of evidence was built from centuries of hard won experience. When it works, it represents as good a balance as we've got between the need to restrain the state and the need to keep crime in check. Bypassing that system is illegal for a good reason.

Unfortunately we live in a world where all too often, laws are for the little people. Nobody at GCHQ or the NSA will ever stand before a judge and answer for this industrial-scale subversion of the judicial process. In the absence of working law enforcement,  we therefore do what internet engineers have always done - build more secure software. The traffic shown in the slides below is now all encrypted and the work the NSA/GCHQ staff did on understanding it, ruined.

Thank you Edward Snowden. For me personally, this is the most interesting revelation all summer.
New documents reveal exactly how the Post was able to determine that the NSA was peeking inside the Google and Yahoo's cloud network.
