Obtaining old Mono and MonoDevelop Mac versions

I was recently looking for old Mono and MonoDevelop Mac versions and realised they weren’t trivial to find. So for the benefit of all mankind, here are the links:

  • Mono http://download.mono-project.com/archive/ 
    • The latest stable 2.X version for mac is 2.10.12
  • MonoDevelop http://download.xamarin.com/monodevelop/Mac/MonoDevelop-VERSION.dmg
    • Switch VERSION with the version you want
    • The full version history can be found here (note that some didn’t have OSX dmg builds)
    • The latest stable MonoDevelop for Mono 2.X is 3.1.1

Happy coding 🙂

Getting spinner gifs from a CDN

Using animated gifs for spinner / loader animation can be quite convenient, and sites such as AjaxLoad allow you to create them to your liking. However, being the early optimization evil person that I am, I was wondering if I could get those off a CDN. There doesn’t seem to be any official support for this, and you won’t get custom taliored gifs to your exact liking, but a sneaky web search reveals quite a few possibilities. For example:

Enjoy 🙂
