I recently updated to Mac OS version 13 (Ventura). It mostly went smoothly, but there were a few issues of note, including an SSH key problem.Continue reading post "Mac OS 13 Ventura update"

Due to some compromised Github code signing certificates, I had to downgrade my installed Atom editor to version 1.60.Continue reading post "#3949"
Vagrant network IP change
Apparently, an update to VirtualBox after version 6.1.26 limited the IP’s usable for network adapters on Mac / Linux hosts. They must now be in the
22.214.171.124/21 range, which is pretty limited and much less easy to remember or type than the
10.*.*.* that I had been using. I had to change my projects to all be in this range and spread out the IPs to avoid collisions between the various projects when I updated VirtualBox a while back.
Github repo backup script
For some time, I’ve been wanting to set up a backup for my Github repos. Technically they are all backed up by my local copies, which are also backed up when I back up my local computer. However, I wanted something that was sure to have everything from all the repos (all branches, tags, etc) and could be set up and run continuously on a yet-to-be-created backup server. I have create a bash script to do this for me.Continue reading post "Github repo backup script"
Vim autocomplete setup
After hours of playing and learning some details of vimscript, I have improved the autocomplete in vim almost to where I like it. I’ve made it work more like some GUI editors, eg Sublime and Atom, where it pops open automatically as I type and I can tab to apply the selected choice or otherwise type on and ignore it, and otherwise clean up the experience. The main thing I would like to add is fuzzy matching. I’d also like it to match more in-document words and work for more unknown file-types in a generic way.Continue reading post "Vim autocomplete setup"
git: MacOS default branch now “main”?
At some point recently,
git init on my Mac has started to default to the branch name “main”. It did this for a repo I created today, but not for one created August 29th, so maybe Apple made a change in an update sometime between then and now. I haven’t been able to find anything about the change on the web though.
Seems like Facebook rescinded their choice to have dark mode on Messenger Lite.Continue reading post "#3833"
During my sick time at home, I discovered that Cosmic Osmo, Manhole, and Spelunx are available on Steam for modern computers.Continue reading post "#3809"
Yay, Facebook Messenger Lite (on Android) has finally got a dark mode. One of the last few apps that hadn’t had it that I use somewhat frequently. I find dark mode to be easier on my eyes in that I can look at it for longer.
I updated to Mac OS Monterey (12.5) finally. It went smoothly but I’m still working through getting some of my dev software updated and working.Continue reading post "#3780"
