In trying to troubleshoot my two-month-old MacBook Pro with TouchBar (2018), I tried booting into Single User Mode. This had previously worked, but for some reason, it now boots right through it. The text appears on the screen, small like always, and then I get the progress bar and the computer prompts me to log […]

SpamSieve Stats March, 2017

I have to reset SpamSieve - my corpus is so old and so weighted toward what spam used to be that it's not as effective as it can/should be now, so I thought I'd do this one last time. Filtered Mail 500,274 Good Messages 707,627 Spam Messages (59%) 154 Spam Messages Per Day SpamSieve Accuracy […]

SpamSieve Stats

I should probably do a better job of marking false positives and negatives, but I do maybe half of the time. I do have to look into why my Penn-State Behrend email always seems to go to spam, though. πŸ™‚ Those are responsible for about 1-3 of the false positives each day. Filtered Mail 454,700 […]

It's now been many, many years, and many, many OS X upgrades, and I still can't get past a problem that's plagued me: minimized Finder windows will appear in the Dock after a restart, but then "disappear" when I un-minimize them. Only killing the Finder (with them out of the Dock) works. I've tried many, […]

The Terminal

I don't know how I missed this, but Craig calls it his "magnum opus" on the Terminal: The Terminal β€’ furbo.org.

I think Apple is still on the high-est ground of any other company, but they have lost the "high" ground they once occupied. Apple has lost the functional high ground – Marco.org and his follow-up: What it’s like to be way too popular for a day – Marco.org. And a few days later, The Functional […]

Easily Watermarking Video on OS X

Is there a great utility out there which will easily allow you to watermark a video on OS X? I'd like to watermark some video before uploading them to YouTube. Obviously I can do this in iMovie or Final Cut Pro, but I'm looking at more of a batch utility. The videos are .avi files […]

Window Magnet for OS X

http://magnet.crowdcafe.com Has anyone used Window Magnet for OS X? $4.99 seems like a good price. I kind of like my window management without it, but… you never know, maybe this is better? Too bad there's no demo. πŸ˜›

Still waiting…. My name is Erik. My wife's name is Carey. I don't even have a "Carrie" in my phone's contacts, yet… that's how Siri insists on spelling it. So much for the "contextual" suggestions and autocorrections. I can't remember the last time I wanted to type "Erik" or "Carrie."

An Illustrated History of Mac OS X I'm still gonna call it Mac OS X, dammit.

New Mac Minis Worse?

The New Mac mini is Quickly Turning into a Disaster I'm glad we didn't get one of these to replace the Mac Mini we use at Golf Evolution to run Analyzr.

DiskWarrior 5, Drive Genius 4

I've purchased both upgrades, though I think Drive Genius may not get re-upped for version 6. DiskWarrior is pretty safe though.

Mail to Self (iOS Extension)

Mail to Self Wonderfully useful. I email things to myself as a reminder to do something about them later. I used to iMessage myself, but this is even faster and easier. And I'm more likely to see an unread email.
