Making MATLAB compatible with Mac OS X Yosemite Public Beta

The 2 videos below (in chronological order) shall serve as the essential guides to enable the compatibility of running MATLAB on Yosemite. I have tested the solutions myself. Both MATLAB and Simulink run perfectly well after the tweaks.

Credits go to Behrad Bagheri for making the videos.

It's been a long time since I last blogged. As in really writing something.

Time has been passing so fast since I turned 21. 

In the last decade, I have achieved much in life: I got a Ph.D., a job, found a marvelous and beautiful (both inside and out) girlfriend who would later became my lovely wife, my first home and car, and now I'm in Sweden on a short contract work placement. 

Whenever I think and recall on all those memories, the photos and videos, they really bring tears to my eyes. Things just happened to fast, there's so much to cherish, but there's so little time. How nice it would be if I can remain as a kid forever with no worries and troubles in my mind, that my parents do not grow old and that they're as energetic and youthful as ever. Never mind all the materialistic possessions in the world, the joy that they bring is shortlived. Being able to be together with our loved ones, that time and experience are priceless. 

Only if there's a pause button in life :(

And of course, I do have some regrets. And sometimes, like everyone else, I wish that I could turn back time and undo all those mistakes that I have made. 

In the end, everything and everyone loses. Time wins. 

May you treasure the time that you have with your loved ones. Time and tide, waits for no man...
