  1. The Tiny Desk (Home) Concert by Katie Pruitt https://www.npr.org/2020/10/26/927197751/katie-pruitt-tiny-desk-home-concert A discovery for me. Wonderful voice, great singing.

  2. Searching for Bobby Fisher and Night Moves (with Gene Hackman) off the top of my head. Both mention historically/theoretically important games. Not just the stuff you see on the back pages of newspapers on a bad news day.

  3. I think I spent several hours on and off trying to get Migration Assistant to run on Catalina (it kept signing out)... I thought it was because I had upgraded an unsupported Mac, but maybe there is a bug in the current version. Some of the macOS install problems come from expired certificates. I've had to install older versions of macOS on some computers and I got the "Install macOS application is damaged" error – deleting one of the .plist files can fix it as described here (Method 2): https://osxdaily.com/2019/10/24/fix-install-macos-application-damaged-cant-be-used-error-mac/

  5. Apple has installers for everything back to Sierra available online. Here's the page with a link for the Mojave installer. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT210190 I make thumb drive installers as I do upgrades. I have them all the way back to Mavericks and a DVD for Snow Leopard if anyone ever needs a copy. But, like I said, that Apple support page has links to Sierra, High Sierra, El Capitan, Mojave and Catalina.

  6. Great find. Reminds me of a mellower Stevie Nicks, in a good way!

  7. Yeah, that would work, but unfortunately they seem to have discontinued Fredrik. They do have some others that look suitable, if I can just find them in stock at one of the 2 Chicago Ikea stores. Thanks though!

  8. 2012 Mac Mini quad core etc etc. It was running Sierra. My issues were based primarily about Apple's shitty policy with older versions of OS X (you have to download it, or start downloading it before they update it or you can't have it in the App Sore) not loading from .dmg. Even a known good .dmg sourced from a friend gave me errors. After two days of that and still being stuck on Sierra, I said the hell with it and went with Catalina. The actual install of Catalina was slow, but relatively painless. What's been a headache is ...everything since. In Cat everything has to have perm

  9. I agree. It's good to have another computer in case things go wrong and especially if there isn't an urgent reason to upgrade. I did a lot of research before I decided to upgrade and I performed the first upgrade on a computer that I could afford to lose (i.e., one that nobody wants). The upgrade process itself doesn't take much longer than a normal macOS upgrade, but you want to be sure your data is safe before proceeding. I haven't tried doing the upgrade version of the process, only erasing drives completely and installing a fresh copy of macOS (and then migrating data back in afterwar

  10. I'm lucky enough to have several spare Macs at work. So far, I've upgraded a 2009 MacBook (white plastic), a 2010 13" MacBook Pro, and a 2008 MacBook (aluminum unibody) to macOS 10.15.7 without problems. In this case, I did it as an experiment and there was no risk as the previous user had upgraded to a newer Mac (i.e., complete drive erase and new macOS install for each of the Macs), but I haven't done any kind of benchmark testing after updating to macOS Catalina. macOS 10.15 seems to have some GUI optimizations that make Catalina feel snappier as well as background security and stabili

  11. I don't know how handy you are, but if memory serves Ikea has similar legs for sale. Some 1/2" Baltic birch plywood, a sheet of Black laminate and you can create a very nice desk built to your specifications.

  12. I get it on the headphones front. I haven't used a pair of their stock offerings for, well, forever (as in never). The kids use them as throw-away headphones when others break. I'm a full bluetooth convert for use with the phone.
