2016-11-04 homebrew cask : creating a new cask

A new version of https://nteract.io/ is out, I will try today to push that new infomation to http://caskroom.io/ by creating a new cask for this application. I will base things on this previous contribution where I was simply editing an existing cask.

2010-10-15 Completely disable quarantine of downloaded files

Starting in Leopard (I believe) when you open a file downloaded from the web, OS X asks if you really mean it. While it is intended to stop maliciousness, it is only a source of aggravation for me. While there are some hints here on working around it, it turns out that you can disable it completely using a Terminal command:

defaults write com.apple.LaunchServices LSQuarantine -bool NO

After that, reboot, and you should be set. (this was inspired by http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20091208050655947 )
