macOS Sierra: Change the order of the network ports your computer uses to connect

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/10/15

Very useful when you want to give your WiFi less priority than an USB or Thunderbolt network adapter: [WayBack] macOS Sierra: Change the order of the network ports your computer uses to connect.

It is not just that the topmost adapter gets more priority: it also determines the DNS search!

Anyway: after choosing “Set Service Order” on the right, choose the order as seen below.

PS: Since Apple is cleaning up their site, only the above WayBack works, but luckily the below link explains it in a very similar way when using Locations:

macOS / OS X / Mac OS X: excessive sysmond or mds CPU usage – via Ask Different and osXdaily

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/10/05

If you suffer from [WayBack] macos – Excessive CPU usage from sysmond – Ask Different, then it could be Activity Monitor itself using that CPU.

If you suffer from high CPU usage in mds, then it is likely the Spotlight search indexer acting up: [WayBack] mds – what MDS process is and why it uses CPU on the Mac

Upgrade to ‎Microsoft Remote Desktop 10 on the Mac App Store

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/17

If you are still on version 8, then note this version will be deprecated at 20180901, so it is time to upgrade to [Archive.is‎Microsoft Remote Desktop 10 on the Mac App Store

[Archive.is] ‎Microsoft Remote Desktop 8 on the Mac App Store is now at version 8.0.44, which changed one thing:

This update adds a dismissible banner to the app UI to message the fact that the client will be deprecated soon. You can start using the new version of Remote Desktop today by downloading Microsoft Remote Desktop 10 from the App Store.

It is easy to import your RDP desktops from version 8 into version 18: in the menu, select Connections, then Import from Microsoft Remote Desktop 8, then enter your credentials so the saved logon passwords can be imported from the [WayBack] KeyChain.

Two fans were podcasting at RetroMacCast before it was cool

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/07

Around this time, episode 500 of RetroMacCast should be out.

It’s an “about weekly” podcast centered around classic Apple computers, mainly of the Macintosh kind but occasionally also on the Apple I, ][, //e, //c and ///, IIgs and Lisa kinds.

After all these years since they started in 2006, It’s still fun to listen to.

Occasionally they do a vodcast on YouTube, for instance their 100th show below.

New episodes are announced here:
