121205_googleplus_005We’ve all been there. Messy desk. Long list of to-dos. Too many phone calls about the same thing. Some days in the office can be a bit hectic, but there are certainly some ways to stay organized with all the tasks at hand throughout the day, and not everyone can afford a real-life personal assistant reminding them of all the events and plans they have in their calender.

Of course, the reason behind this is to try and increase compatibility with non 64 bit hardware etc, but it still is a pain.

In order to enable a 64 bit kernel, you can approach this a few ways. The quickest and easiest way is to hold down the 6 and 4 keys just after you power up your Mac. This will boot you into 64 bit mode for that session only (ie. next time you reboot you will be back to 32 bit mode).
