Yosemite going on the primary MacBook... TRIM Enabler 3 best do it's thing and disable that whole kext signing nonsense.Well played that man. http://t.co/ioCk1xPIPQ
Retweeted by Grumpy Technician.@Gordon_Keenan BASTARDS!@Gordon_Keenan Yeah... good isn't it? Just so they can sit on the profit for a few days and earn more money out of a refund.Yep. it's still in Alpha, and there's still quite a few things wrong with it, but #EvolveOS is great.So a shop can take money from my account in a few seconds, but a refund takes '2-3 working days'. Why? Why not refund it RIGHT NOW?
@Gordon_Keenan appears at the centre of the screen now, not a drop down…@Gordon_Keenan was spotlight disabled before? You might have to re-enable, and not wanting to sound like an utter plank, the search box 1/2@Gordon_Keenan don’t think so… not seen that before! Was this an upgrade or a clean install?@Gordon_Keenan but you’ll have to google that because I can’t remember it. It involves modifying launcd.@Gordon_Keenan you’ll have to elaborate on high mouse? Are you trying to turn spotlight off? There’s a terminal command to disable.@Gordon_Keenan and connecting to AD with SMB2, still broken. Weekend project is install on 3rd party SSD with TRIM. Should be fun.#yosemite. I like it. I thought I didn’t, but I like the new UI. Still full of crap I’ll not use but generally, it’s good.It's not the fist time Apple stole something and passed it off as an invention. Alfred. Spotlight. Go fish.We think our Yosemite v1.0 looks pretty good @YosemiteNPS #California http://t.co/TU4dFSzot1
Retweeted by Grumpy Technician.I'm just going to hard reboot this f***ing thing in a moment. I've got a backup...@Gordon_Keenan How much RAM you got in the MBP's? When I was testing the Betas, the 2GB required minimum was absolutely NOT enough. 4GB fine@Gordon_Keenan But my macbook that's running Beta 6 is flying along... no rhyme/reason. Yours are probably just spotlight indexing.@Gordon_Keenan You've managed to install it? Wow. Lucky you. My iMac has had a black progress bar showing half-done for about an hour now.Woo. Grey screen. half and black progress bar. Looking slick there #YosemiteClassic "less than a minute remaining"... been there at least 20 mins now. #YosemiteProblemsInstalling 10.10 on my main machine. I know this is probably a dumb idea. Always wait for the X.1. ALWAYS. Do I learn? No.It seems that Apple finally fixed iCal (or Calendar as they call it now). Day view is more or less like it was 5 years ago. Winning!Reading #YosemiteProblems feed. Looks like I'm not missing out on anything #Leave_It_A_WeekSo, if you're on Beta 3, you need to install beta 4,5,6... then maybe I can have the full #Yosemite?And I wonder if they fixed the bug with TRIM, well, it's not a bug per se, but will break your day if you have an SSD and install #YosemiteSo Apple launched some things. I wonder if they fixed all of the broken things, like SMB2? #10.10
We launched a Kickstarter to print 3 wonderful decks of cards designed by @jessicahische @anotherny & @alonzofelix. https://t.co/MClvrTZANt
Retweeted by Grumpy Technician.Absolutely loving trying out the #EvolveOS alpha-4. Cannot wait for this thing to go deployment ready.Hmm. 10.10 Yosemite. If you've got less than 8GB RAM, don't bother. You need 8, but will be happy with 16.
Is it me, or is the Design Observer makeover something of a retrograde step?
Just as I was starting to feel better, I'm get dragged back into another forced marriage with the common cold.
It's quite nice being back in the darkroom, especially as I have my own personal stash of Seagul FB - although it's getting a little thin😮Student: It's a bit dark in here... Me: Yes, it is. That's why they call it a "darkroom"...Mandaponium. That's manic pandemonium.
I agreed with the experts 16 times out of 20 on the @FastCompany Design Sense Quiz. Can you beat me? http://t.co/MCTaW4VaR3

Retweeted by Grumpy Technician.@paper_smiths @offscreenmag happy days. I'll be in for a copy when you're open. Missed your pop up shop, sadly.Man alive. iOS 8 on a iPad mini (1st gen) is going from a MacBook Pro with an SSD to a G3 PowerBook. Everything is just so bastard slow!
@FaberBooks @HUCKmagazine The LWL book is worth the RT alone, let alone all the rest.
@offscreenmag I hope @paper_smiths will be stocking your magazine, but they're not open yet.

Retweeted by Grumpy Technician.Some people's demands are just so extraordinary, you can only laugh. In their faces.How could I, the over-caffeinated worker that I am, not know that it is #InternationalCoffeeDay ? I must brew another pot to celebrate.
Been getting my craft on. Happy face.Nice! Bbc2. The Island at the Top of the World. It’s like a precursor to Thor.
How the hell do you turn off these dappy emoji in iOS 8? #featuresyoudontwant #makeitstop
@IanAMartin if you have a 4S, I really wouldn't bother. It's horribly laggy!Well iOS8 on a 4S sucks slow laggy arse. And that new predictive keyboard? That got turned off right away. Nice new wallpaper though.
Problems get solved quicker if I am left alone to solve them. #constant #interruptions
