Doing hardware upgrades, infrastructure rearrangements and software updates over this week. Expect some down-time…

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/16

This is upgrade/update week, so new disk space, and quite a bit of reorganisation going on.

Expect down-times in various portions of infrastatus.wiert.me

Secondaries should catch most, but some of the web-sites will be down for a while.

Change Excel’s ‘edit in cell’ keyboard shortcut | Macworld

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/16

Learn one way to change Excel’s Control-U shortcut to the easier-to-use F2 (which also matches the Windows’ shortcut).

Ah, so Ctrl-U is the shortcut to edit a cell on Mac OS X with Microsoft Office Excel (:

macos – When /tmp/wifi-*.log will show up and how can I stop it? – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/13

When you have many /tmp/wifi-{date}__{time}.log files, then this is how to get rid of them (it happened to me on a fresh Sierra machine):

At least on macOS Sierra (10.12):

  1. You can see what WIFI related components have debug logging enabled with:shell# /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport debug
  2. You can disable all debug logging with:shell# /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport debug -AllUserland -AllDriver -AllVendor

For whatever reason, the debug logging flag was enabled for ‘DriverWPA’ on my machine and that resulted in /tmp/wifi-{date}__{time}.log files getting generated when joining new WPA2 protected WIFI networks.

Finding out why Github doesn’t render your reStructuredText as expected

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/13

One of the cool Github features is that it renders reStructuredText (and other markup documents like markdown).

Often however, your .rst file on GitHub looks very differently on GitHub as your local render. Heck: sometimes Github will not even render it at all.
