SD cards solutions to add 256 gigabyte to your non USB-C Retina MacBook

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/06/12

I was asked what I used to extend my Retina Macbook storage. Mine still has an SD-card slot so the sit flush solutions below work fine.

I could have used USB-3 to micro-SD card adapters that sit flush.

There are no USB-C to micro-SD adapters that sit flush, so they do not work for more modern Retina MacBook devices.

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.
