The 6 elements of an effective apology, according to science | News Room – The Ohio State University

1. Expression of regret

2. Explanation of what went wrong

3. Acknowledgment of responsibility

4. Declaration of repentance

5. Offer of repair

6. Request for forgiveness

The most important component is an acknowledgement of responsibility. Say it is your fault, that you made a mistake.The second most important element was an offer of repair.By saying, ‘I’ll fix what is wrong,’ you’re committing to take action to undo the damage

Participants were less likely to accept apologies when the job applicant showed a lack of integrity versus a lack of competence.

Chromium Nightly Updater Script Change

I always test the latest chromium nightlies. You get the latest goodies and it is stable most of the time.

On Mac, I use the really neat and simply applescript by Dominic Barnes. Recently, Chromium nightly locations changed. So, here is the updated script.


--Developed by Dominic Barnes
--Email: dom@dombarnes.com
--http://dombarnes.com
--Version 0.3

--find latest build number
--set the_source to do shell script "curl http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac/LATEST"

set the_source to do shell script "curl http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac/LATEST"

--set local directory info
set remFile to "chrome-mac.zip"
set locDir to "~/"
set locFile to "chrome-mac.zip"

--download latest build using build number in the_source
--do shell script "curl http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac/" & the_source & "/" & remFile & " -o " & locDir & locFile
do shell script "curl http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/snapshots/chromium-rel-mac/" & the_source & "/" & remFile & " -o " & locDir & locFile

--unpack and copy
do shell script "unzip -o " & locDir & locFile & " -d " & locDir

--move existing Chromium and copy new
try
do shell script "cp -pR /Applications/Chromium.app /Applications/Chromium.old.app"
do shell script "rm -R /Applications/Chromium.app"
end try

do shell script "mkdir -p /Applications/Chromium.app"
do shell script "mkdir -p /Applications/Chromium.app/Contents"
do shell script "cp -pR " & locDir & "chrome-mac/Chromium.app/Contents /Applications/Chromium.app"

--Cleanup folders and files
do shell script "rm -R " & locDir & "chrome*"
try
do shell script "rm -R /Applications/Chromium.old.app"
end try
display dialog "Chromium build " & the_source & " has been installed"
