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.

Connecting two Macs using Thunderbolt | Macworld

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/03/30

TL;DR: Connecting to Macs over Thunderbolt is easy and has transfer speeds way faster than other network connections.

Summary of steps from [WayBackConnecting two Macs using Thunderbolt | Macworld

  • Connect the Thunderbolt cable between two Macs
  • In the Network Preferences find the self-assigned IP address on either side
  • In that side, ensure you have File Sharing enabled
  • On the other side, open a Finder, press Command-K, then the IP-address you noted and logon
  • Transfer files

This also increases LAN sync speeds of DropBox, Google Drive and others.

Note the connection by default using SMB

Capturing from a Magewell XI100USB on a Mac using OS X

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/03/28

Some notes and links on http://www.magewell.com/usb-capture-hdmi with specs at http://www.magewell.com/usb-capture-hdmi/tech-specs

USBCaptureHDMI-Installation-Guide-en-2.0.pdf USB-Capture-HDMI-User-Guide-en.pdf USB-Capture-HDMI_Spec-sheet.pdf

The video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbjIx1qhvpM uses Quickier

I used QCamera: the XI100USB shows up as a camera.

Note capturing takes a lot of CPU power, so ensure you’re not running on battery.

I didn’t need any of these downloads:

On a Mac any of these software tools should work as well:

  • Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder
  • Adobe Connect
  • CoGe VJ
  • Discover Video Streamsie
  • Gotomeeting
  • GrandVJ
  • MadMapper
  • mimoLive
  • OBS studio
  • Quicklaunch
  • QuickTime Broadcaster
  • QuickTime Player
  • Resolume
  • Skype
  • Streambox
  • Video Stitch
  • VirtualDub
  • VLC
  • Wirecast
  • Zoom.us

Office 2011 for Mac update pesky Window pops up every 10 seconds

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/03/27

From the “I hate my users” department:

  • This dialog pops up every 10 seconds
  • The Office 2011 for Mac update requires non-Office apps to quit as well
