  1. It's been a while, so I'm going to update some of my list: Reply All StartUp Invisibilia This American Life The Laracasts Snippet (Laravel/PHP programming)
  2. No @Waldo Pepper. If you manually enter the DNS addresses into the Network Setting in System Preferences on the Mac (under Advanced…), then those are the DNS setting that will be used (not the ones from the DNS router). It's actually one way you might get around DNS filtering/blocking on specific network. For example here is how its looks configured locally on my Mac for using the OpneDNS servers: Just remember that these are set per interface, so if you also use a wired Ethernet connection you'd need to set them there too. All this said, at home I have the OpenDNS setting set up on my router so that all Macs/Devices in my home network are using OpenDNS. The main reason is because my cable ISPs DNS (Cox) has proven to be slow and unreliable in the past. That, and OpenDNS does automatic blocking of know hacked and attacked websites.
  3. Wow, that sounds like a major PITA. Unfortunately due to all the heightened hacking and spyware/malware attacks on OS X and iOS this seems to be the world we're heading toward. Still I too am not a big fan of any company "forcing" security and protection measures on customer. Give me the option, but don't force it. If someone wants to be careless with their security/privacy then it's their choice.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Ok, I've adjusted some of the storage limits a bit so hopefully you can upload now.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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:
  10. 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.
  11. Try again. The last update had broken some podcast things, but looks like many of them are fixed now at least for me.
  12. 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.
  13. Thanks @johnfoster good stuff. I look forward to the updates.
  14. 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/
