Sisyphean Effort in Spelunking

Recently we started seeing a handful of users who couldn’t save projects.  Thankfully this would become evident fairly early in making updates.  We scratched our heads, looked in the logs and tried to correlate events.  At times, we thought we had found the culprit.  And several times over, we learned how dark the caves can be.  Folks were being sent home, and concern was rising.

Mac IT 2015 - Part 2

One of my favorite talks of the day was given by Facebook Engineers (Software & Security.)  They've been working on a set of open source tools that allow admins to query the operating system for various things of interest.

Mac IT 2015.

Monday night.
The tables are up.  Signs around.  Apps-a-dinging.
Looking at learning more about managing Mac OS and iOS.

Time for sleep.


New desks for the edit rooms!!

Getting ready for Spring!  John and David built new desks today, for the edit systems.  You may notice a new iMac in the picture.  We have to give props to Antrho, nice packaging; good directions.  Rain (turntable mount) gets a fail for not providing a mounting template, no directions; although fairly straight forward.

MacIT day 2

Day 2 is done.  Your IT monkey is swinging a bit slower today, but still swinging.

Started the day by enjoying an on-stage interview of Fred Armisen.  The chat ranged from music appreciation, "Listen to the album" and hear the whole story.  They touched on his experience as a musician, an actor and comedic performer.  Riffed a bit on the process.

MacIT day 1

Your intrepid IT guru has taken a trip South to the MacIT conference...  Looking at ways to improve my workflow and open more time to do more things.

On the list today:
