So you are here wondering how to see hidden files in macOS? Actually, in finder but you know.
Well, first of all, you need to know what hidden files are. They are somewhat important and normally you cannot see them in finder for various reasons. One of them is: they are UGLY! Kidding :) No, they are.
Forced by the situation (details below), I had to upgrade my phone and my choice this time was iPhone 15 Pro.
As a short recent history, I have used so far: iphone 3g, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5s, iPhone Xs.
But in my family, and also with my job, I had the chance to test and use also: iPhone 6s, iPhone SE, iPhone 12 mini.
In this video you will see how (amazing, I know) whisky is easier than wine!
You will see how to install Whisky with GPTK on macOS Sonoma. It is quite easy; you will see! And to complete the transaction, I have installed also Steam and presented a game (or two). And, by the way, behind Whisky we have Wine (with a bit of crossover). Whisky is a graphical wrapper for Wine built in native SwiftUI.
I was installing something today and I got an error. Looking closer I found there is a warning in the output:
Warning: The Xcode Command Line Tools package appears to be installed, but its receipt appears to be missing.
In this article, we will focus on that and fix it, of course!
I love woodworking! I love also metalworking, computerworking and alotofthingsworking but I am inventing words now so let's stick to wood this time :)
My kid was begging for a playhouse for years and I finally gave up and made one! As usual, without proper planning I started building and this is what I got. My kid loves it and it's big enough to be repurposed if one day is no longer used for playing.
Apple Watch Series 7 of 9: After 19 months and worth upgrading to 9?
Apple Watch Series 9 has just been released and I do not have it! However, I have it's specs and was not that difficult to compare it with Series 7, the one that I currently own and use for more than 19 months. And I have a lot to say about it. And the most important: I have to say something about upgrading from 7 to 9.
I have used for some time already 1TB Crucial MX500 and it broke down unexpectedly. Whoever things SSDs will last forever is very wrong. SSDs not only do not last forever but they can be "gone" anytime without warnings. So, as I have mentioned many many many times in my videos, always do backup! Check out my channel for other interesting videos.
CarPlay and USB-C are best friends! You just have to know which cable to use. So, do not be scared, watch this and learn something. I am using an iPhone 15 Pro with seven cables:
1. An ordinary USB-A to USB-C (Type C) cable - no data support
2. IKEA LILLHULT USB-A to USB-C (Type C) cable
3. Baseus CATYS-02 USB-A to USB-C (Type C), 1m, 66W
4. Belkin Boost Charge Flex USB-A to USB-C (Type C), 1m
5. Tellur Led Glowing Connection USB-A to USB-C (Type C), 1,2m
6. and 7. Two high speed USB-A to USB-C (Type C) cables from NVMe enclosures.
This may be a weird one but I had a photo taken when I bought my first computer (macbook 13 inch white) directly with the mac camera and directly into my user's image.
It later become my Apple ID's icon and so on. Seeing it daily it grew on me and when iOS 17 arrived, playing with my new card deleted my beloved icon so I had to put it back but how?
I have encountered today at work a situation where I had to know which established connections are using TCP keepalive and which are not.
If you do not know what TCP keepalive is, check out this link. It explains EVERYTHING! :)
You have this old server, it does it's job correctly and you forgot about it. More important, you forget to update it's packages from time to time.
Well, you remember about it but meanwhile this OS has become obsolete and the apt sources are not valid anymore. What to do?
Create another server with new OS and migrate the application/data?
Upgrade the existing server?
Hold on, you do not want to upgrade for now? Just want to update the existing OS? OK, I have a solution for that too.
In this episode I am presenting the dash camera Viofo A139 Quad HD which means 2K.
Using it few month already I can say it is quite good, with quality recordings (back and front) and reliable.
Mixed with a wireless remote and hardwire kit, you can do more like:
- lock a video without the need to reach the camera
- have the camera stop/start with the engine
- parking mode
I am pretty excited to show you probably the best gaming headset I have ever had. I have used for a while Beats solo 3 which are great but are on ear. I wanted something over ear.
I have tested also Steelseries Arctis Pro and Lenovo H600 wireless but so far these ones won for a simple reason: I have used them over 12 hours straight and I felt no discomfort! It is something...
In plus the drivers are great and you can push them hard.
I have upgraded to Ventura and while the modifications are not bad, Apple managed to wreck something that was working very well on previous macOS versions and also on countless linux servers around the world. Yes, I am talking about Samba.
I had an issue a couple of days ago in which I had the /docker filesystem full and unable to pinpoint exactly which docker container is using it.
Fortunately docker comes with powerful utilities to help you out with this.
Follow what comes if curious.
How to check how docker is using the system space:
The following commands even if they are close they provide different output. the -v option will give you way more details docker system df -v docker system df
You have installed vmware tools provided by your ESXi host but you see this message on some servers: "VMware Tools is installed and supported, but a newer version is available on the host."
If you carefully read VMware documentation you will find out they recommend using open-vm-tools instead of VMware tools, as mentioned in the article (link at the end).
Improved stability, automatic updates, smaller footprint, package optimised for each distribution are some of the reason behind this recommendation.
