Nice to see Apple have removed the option to make RAID arrays in 10.11. diskutil method still works though. It's as if RAID is a bit pro.

@cultofmac Probably. They don't do anything unique from the phone they need to pair to. They solve a problem that doesn't exist.

I thought Macs were expensive. I was asked to spec up a rack mounted Dell workstation. I stopped at £66k. They want to spend about £1500.

@Gordon_Keenan What about those of us that don't identify as human? I am a fish, and you suggesting that I am not offends me.I have come to the conclusion that cutting perfect mitres can only be achieved by doing a deal with the devil.

I'm going to buy an abacus. It would be slower, but simpler in the long run. #AppleMost Co's honour orders placed before a price change. Not #Apple They cancel and tell you to buy the same thing for more money. Magical!

Err, 'legacy connectors' would be LPT, ADC, serial, parallel or PS2, not, you know, the one that is used everywhere! https://t.co/EY4MG4UMgO @Gizmodo Solving problems that didn't used to exist. So how do you plug your apple 'phones into the new MacBookPro?Woodland is good for you. FACT. https://t.co/2ob8fF2jSfSo many new podcasts, all featuring people I like to listen to, but where do you find the time to listen to them all? @Gordon_Keenan The only thing that really holds me back is there's no ARD for PC - why would there be? And now I can install bash in Windows @Gordon_Keenan In other news, the 2010 Mac Pro runs Windows 10 just lovely - for testing purposes of course. OK, I'm using it all day. @Gordon_Keenan This is final cut... not what we have now. https://t.co/eC276CaYxTI updated Final Cut Pro X last night. This morning it's been replaced with iMovie Pro , or something... @Apple . WTF are you doing?

One cup of coffee and a think later... a plan forms. https://t.co/fH6Vkk4pl3I think I need to have a sit down and a coffee before I make any more basic mistakes. #measuretwicecutonce @Gordon_Keenan Funny you should say that. The value of Mac mini servers - dual drives - has bumped up by £100 or so this week.

@Gordon_Keenan Even if they were honed from pure Ebony with Agar inlay, they would be cheap compared to those bad boys. @Gordon_Keenan Cheaper than walnut!I like listening to jazz in the car when my phone is charging. The RF interference gives the music an authentic vinyl hiss.No chocolate diet, day one. So far. No chocolate. I really want a wispa.This has been going for an hour... I am cloning an 80gb drive. I think there is something very wrong. https://t.co/wpjsQ3swaPSorry #Apple, one more thing. You took away the SD slot too? WTF? Oh, there's now a £25 adapter... thanks. WTF?Right, that's enough Apple ranting. Back to ordering some wood. Wood never lets you down. Wood doesn't go up in price by £500 overnight.Remember 'leavers', there's "A small price to pay for sovereignty" Enjoy! https://t.co/Eos95ae2Rr @Gordon_Keenan They'll have to get PC towers and run linux. I think we're moving into the age of Torvolds for power users. @Gordon_Keenan I have future proofed my 2010 MacPro as much as I can with all the RAM & SSDs, but I can't install 10.12 on it (officially).Agreed. I hate to agree as mac user of 25 plus years, but I agree. https://t.co/KpIwQIQSytSo now, Apple's stuff doesn't work with its own stuff unless you buy more cables and headphones.
Retweeted by phjils @Gordon_Keenan when, I'm sorry. Grammar and spelling failed me. @Gordon_Keenan They sealed that deal wen they dropped "computer" from the company name. Those computers are just an expensive legacy product
