Delete test orders from Magento 1.5.x/1.4.x

So you have a Magento project, created a new theme, added products and categories, and made a few orders for testing of delivery and payment. You made sure that everything works fine and the client is ready to launch your site developed. But you still see weird orders in admin panel. Client says they must be removed and they can’t do that in admin panel. But how? You can only cancel that orders, but they will remain there with status “Cancelled”. Unfortunately, Magento doesn’t to remove them through admin panel, so you will not find any button “Delete Order”. This may frustrate you as a developer and your client. The fact that the ordering data is stored in different database tables (sales, warehouse, etc..)

Switch to self-hosted private git easily

Don’t like plans on github or had enough with downtimes on services like that, it’s not enough space provided by git hosting service? No problem! Switch to self-hosted git then, it’s quick and easy, you will still be able to track changes etc in console or via GUI of your git client, or you can even setup gitweb/instaweb to have web-interface. Personally, I don’t like any git hosting service because they’re not reliable and don’t provide enough space and private repos.

Xerox Phaser 3117 drivers for Mac OS X

If you have a nice GDI printer Xerox Phaser 3117, you will wonder there’s no driver for Mac OS X and Xerox website says this printer is not supported in Mac OS X 10.6.

As you know Mac OS X uses Apple’s developed CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System), so I’ve been used this printer on FreeBSD with Samsung GDI driver, but that wasn’t working via Mac’s interface. Even though there’s a special drivers build for this printer Splix, that was not working properly.
