I saw this online somewhere and I just had to recreate it. This is my coding happy place.

Until I was about 14, I thought the cones you sometimes see dogs wearing were to make the dog's bark sound louder and, thus, more effective for scaring away potential burglars.

what i'm saying is: download the things you love. download even the things you like, that you find any significance in at all. hoard data. disk space scarcity is more or less no longer real if you have even a small amount of money to spend. anything that is not saved will be lost

One of my favourite graphics on Wikipedia is this illustration of the maximum dimensions of a PDF page: commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fil

Correction: not the maximum size of a PDF file, but a page within a PDF file. (Thanks Uwe.)

Google has announced that they will now consider an account dead and delete it if it receives no logins for two years. If you have any gmail accounts you don't use often, or have custody of someone else's while they're in jail/the hospital/the tundra or whatever, you should set a recurring alarm on your calendar to manually log into it every few months.

⚠️​ HELP WANTED ⚠️​

It looks like the new M3/Pro/Max machines are shipped out with THREE separate unreleased builds of macOS:
- 13.5 (22G2074)
- 13.5 (22G2080)
- 14.1 (23B2073)
If you're getting any such machine, find it has one of the above builds and would like to help preserve its firmware before updating, please reach out to me.

I don't get why so many people rant against Apple for putting firmware on the internal storage, "because SSDs are consumable". Does anyone seriously go around booting machines from external storage when internal storage dies, on any sort of long-term basis? That's ridiculous. Especially for laptops.

What you do is replace the SSD.

Which is why the real argument you want to be making is for replaceable storage, which makes a lot of sense.

Apple have very good reasons for putting boot components on internal storage and only booting from internal storage. They do not have good reasons for not putting their NANDs on sticks (and in fact they do, on Studio and Mac Pro models, so they certainly could do it on all the others). Argue for that, not the silly external storage thing.
