Glitch in `brew update` – just run it again when you see `Error: update-report should not be called directly!`

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/08/17

If you see the error below when running brew update, then you bumped in a small brew glitch [WayBack]. The solution is usually to just run brew update again [WayBack] (thanks Ashley Willis [WayBack]) and it will likely run fine:

$ brew update
/usr/local/Library/brew.sh: line 32: /usr/local/Library/ENV/scm/git: No such file or directory

Builds ChaCha20 version of openssl on Mac OS X static without dylib for use with testssl.sh

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/08/17

A while ago, testssl.sh [WayBack] needed Darwin binaries (for OS X): Supply Darwin binaries + install documentation · Issue #127 · drwetter/testssl.sh [WayBack]

So I created the small Bourne shell (sh) script below to deliver them.

It allows me to update these gists:

The build script itself is in a gist as well: https://gist.github.com/f4de3937630b87753133.git [WayBack]

It helped me to contribute to these testssl.sh issues:

Not all of these binaries are in https://github.com/drwetter/testssl.sh/tree/master/bin [WayBack] as it makes the testssl.sh repository too bloated. Some (including non-OSX builds made by others) are here:

Eventually the script might get merged into https://github.com/drwetter/testssl.sh/blob/master/utils/make-openssl.sh [WayBack] as there is a Darwin switch in this commit: https://github.com/drwetter/testssl.sh/commit/6efc3e90f52e5926b0853d3b2fb221b631dcf452 [WayBack]

Fix the OS X Finder not displaying the contents of specific folders | MacIssues

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/08/15

The culprit is usually the mds [WayBack] process (metadata server).

Simple command-line solution:

sudo killall mds

A more convoluted way with the Activity Monitor is in the link below.

The Codeless Code: Ancient code

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/08/10

something like: 100 PRINT “&F2&B&H3&W2Hello, world!”would select font #2, bold, with triple height and double width, and render “Hello!” on the high-res screen

Make A Bootable Windows 10 USB Install Stick On Linux With WinUSB Fork ~ Web Upd8: Ubuntu / Linux blog

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/07/29

One day I’m going to need this: Make A Bootable Windows 10 USB Install Stick On Linux With WinUSB Fork ~ Web Upd8: Ubuntu / Linux blog

So I’m glad WinUSB (which hadn’t been maintained for a long time) got forked on github by slaka.

Since my day-to-day unix-like system is OS X, I’d love a good working solution there too which means I probably need to investigate a bit along these lines:
