  1. Just for clarity @Huskermn that warning is in regards to the next point release of iOS, so you should be safe going from 10.3.X to another 10.3.X. It's when Apple moves to 10.4 that they will drop support for old 32-bit apps and they will stop working.
  2. I VERY much agree on the " there are better editors" statement. I'm a big fan of SublimeText and really Xcode is pretty awesome and free.
  3. Ok, I've adjusted some of the storage limits a bit so hopefully you can upload now.
  4. Thanks for all the updates @johnfoster! Let me look into why you're being blocked on uploading files. Possibly a limit I have set in the forum settings.
  5. Hey @Francis_Reyes, I tied doing this on my old 2011 MacBook Pro and was never really successful, but it's supposedly possible. The tool that was recommended is https://github.com/dokterdok/Continuity-Activation-Tool. It looks like they say this is "mostly working" with macOS Sierra. When I tried it I remember it being really important to get the correct dongle as only certain ones seem to be supported. If you do try and get it working can you report back here to let us know? Thanks.
  6. Hey @johnfoster you might they looking at VisualStudio Code, https://code.visualstudio.com, as a test vs. the full VisualStudio IDE. I think Code is more in line with the capabilities of TextWrangler and BBEdit. That said, it's interesting that full Visual Studio would not install. Do you have Xcode installed? That seems to be one of the system requirements for the full Visual Studio for Mac:
  7. I have not noticed this, but have not been paying that close attention. That would be very annoying though. Is it only an issue with tracks played on the iPhone or if you play the track in iTunes on the mac is it the same issue? Have you verified that the email you're login into iTunes on the iPhone is EXACTLY the same email you're logged into iTunes on the Mac with? I've noticed problems when say I use my '@mac.com' address on one device and then my '@me.com' address on another. Both are technically the SAME address for logging into iTunes, but Apple's sync systems seem to get thrown off by it.
  8. Try again. The last update had broken some podcast things, but looks like many of them are fixed now at least for me.
  9. Both of these answers are correct, but in different ways. The one @johnfoster is recommending will mean that the `.log` files will always open with Sublime Text as the default (may or may nor be what you want). Chances are though that without the fix @djurgensen describes Sublime Text would not even show up in the 'Open With:' list (at least not as a "recommended" application). The PLIST hack he describes is needed so OS X even knows that Sublime Text is a valid app for opening `.log` files. Of course that's just for the 'show recommend' list. You could always select the 'Show all' or 'Other…' from the dropdown and choose any app you want.
  10. Thanks @johnfoster good stuff. I look forward to the updates.
  11. There is a also a free version of Ambrosia Software's Malestrom 3.0. They even have the add on packs you can download and install. In fact Ambrosia still seem to be selling many of it's old titles on it's site??? http://www.ambrosiasw.com/games/
  12. All the classic Marathon games for free: https://alephone.lhowon.org
  13. very cool @johnfoster. So with this info I guess one could "hack" in their own power button?
  14. Thanks again @Dudeman. The term "re-update" is even vague. What does that mean exactly? I will probably still give it a go and see what happens, though as I mentioned my computer does seem to still be processing the images just REALLY, REALLY, slowly. As of today it's reporting 15,683 scanned with 3,217 remaining. So it's processed about 9,000 in a month?
  15. Ok @Dudeman here the thing about running the "repair" on the library. I made a backup of my Library and then tried that. When it finished iCloud Photo Library started reporting that it was "downloading" my 18,000+ image Photo Library. I became scared, quit the app, and restored from backup. I did this for two reasons: Fear that it could duplicate my entire library and then go into some sort of vicious loop Concern it would be eating up a lot of my bandwidth. Now here's the thing, I'm not sure if it was actually "downloading" or not. I did check the Activity Monitor's Network pane and Photos was "downloading" something. It was not as much as I would expect if it was really pulling down everything, but still what WAS it doing? My assumption is despite Photos saying it was "downloading" what it was really doing was "syncing". Doing a comparison and pulling down any differences. Unfortunately in searching Google, StackExchange, the Apple Discussion Boards and such i could not get any definitive answer as to what was happening. These are the times when, as much as I love Apple's manta of simplicity, I wish Apple would provide a much more "verbose" account of what a running process is doing. If anyone knows if it's "safe" to repair a Photo Library that has iCloud Photo Library enabled on it let me know. I have considered turning off iCloud Photo Library on my Mac and trying again, but my concern is what happened when i turn it back on as it will still have to sync with the files I already have up there.
