I bought this fun toy, but it had a misaligned LED so i had to disassemble it to fix it. I took some pictures to share with the world, in case someone is curious about the components or inner workings of this alien anti-gravity technology.
I was importing my photos from my iPhone to my MacBook running El Capitan, and I got errors saying some files were in an unrecognised format, and some pictures turned out completely weird.
What’s sad is that the Photos app though that the pictures got successfully imported (apparently there was no integrity check), and so it reported back to iPhone that it could delete the photos after the “successful” import (according to the checkbox in the import dialog.)
Guess I’ll have to manually delete each photo on the iPhone after manually checking that all photos are in fact imported successfully now…
Personal Hotspot disappeared from settings on iPhone when using a new SIM card? Googled for a solution but I didn’t find one. Seems that the problem was that the APN for personal hotspot wasn’t configured.
Go to Settings -> Mobile Data -> Mobile Data Network Set the same settings under section Personal Hotspot as section Mobile Data
En ting som jeg syns mangler på finn.no er å kunne filtrere bort boligere med høye fellesutgifter, så jeg slang sammen en Chrome extension for å legge til ekstra funksjoner i finn, og forhåpentligvis spare deg og meg litt tid.
There is a cute litte program called sshuttle for shuttling IP subnet traffic over and SSH connection, like a VPN but doesn’t require any setup on the remote end.
As far as i understand, it will add a firewall rule to the client saying which destinations to tunnel (the specified netmask), and will forward these packets using a python script through an ssh pipe to a python script in the other end that will spit out the packets into the target network.
Turns out in Yosemite Apple removed ipfw and moved over to pf, so in order to get it to work you need the newest version of sshuttle, from here (which supports pf):
I struggled a bit to find out how to store my Photo Library on a NetGear ReadyNAS. SMB did not work, and SSHFS did not work either. I was unable to get AFP working too, and I saw that it was discouraged.
The solution was to mount the drive using NFS. Then I created a sparse bundle disk image with a Mac OS Extended (Journaled) partition with an Apple Partition Map, on the NFS mounted partition, and moved my Photos Library.photoslibrary onto the mounted image. Everything seems to be running fast and smoothly. (I’m on a gigabit LAN.)
It should be noted that I use ext4 for my NAS partitions, don’t know if it matters.
So I bought a MacBook Pro and wanted to start using Mac OS X as my primary OS. I’m used to Windows/Linux so I have some preferences as to behaviour. There are some things that are kind of annoying, many of which can be fixed. Also there are some tricks that make me more productive.
