When I tried to use Airplay to make my TV a second display, the TV went blank. None of the mirroring options were shown in the Airplay menu. I called Apple support, but Airplay mysteriously started working during the call. Yesterday, the problem was back. I found the solution in an Apple support community post. There seems to be a bug in El Capitan that prevents Airplay from being used as a second display if there is an invalid login item.
I’m working with a MEAN app on Mac OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.3. Every time I restart the computer, the app crashes, saying, “Too many open files.” I have to run this command in the terminal to get the app to start:
ulimit -n 1024
I set up Dreamhost cron jobs to run
drush cron for two different sites running Drupal 8.0.3. One of the cron jobs worked, but the other failed with a syntax error. Drupal 8 requires PHP 5.5.9 or later, and the default version of PHP for one of the sites was 5.4.42. Changing the default PHP version in .bash_profile and .bashrc did not fix the error.
Server 5.0.15 gets stuck configuring Xcode 7.2.1 unless Xcode is run at least once as root: https://forums.developer.apple.com/thread/34683.
If you add a private files directory after installing Drupal 8.0.3, you will get a warning on the status page saying it is not fully protected and to see https://www.drupal.org/SA-CORE-2013-003 for information about how to protect it with an .htaccess file. The message shows up even if the directory is not Web-accessible. Ignore it. The .htaccess file will be created automatically after caches are rebuilt.
Usenet used to be the Internet. The World Wide Web was announced on Usenet. But most ISPs no longer offer Usenet. Usenet has been replaced by Web forums (I include Facebook and Twitter in the definition of Web forums). Why?
Usenet lacks two things that Web forums have:
- Permanent archiving
The need for these two features is the reason Web forums have replaced Usenet.
Don’t use Audiobook Builder 1.5.4 to create audiobooks on a Mac. It always adds a blank JPEG track to the audio file. Audiobook Binder 2.1 works properly and is free. No idea why LibriVox recommends Audiobook Builder. Here are instructions for getting a refund: http://www.imore.com/how-to-get-refund-itunes-app-store.
