According to this information, I should be able to
geth with the following command on my OSX machine:
geth attach ipc://somePath/geth.ipc

geth attach ipc:~/Library/Ethereum/geth.ipc
I get the following error message:

geth attach --ipcdisable

Ultimately what I'd like to do is connect to the geth console without it spewing out a bunch of text so that I can examine the account balance of my address for my testnet mining, like I was asking about here.
Any ideas about what's wrong with my
geth.ipc or how I can check that address would be greatly appreciated.
