    What are you reading now?

    If you don't mind "dancing about architecture",.. ARSC Awards http://www.arsc-audio.org/awards/awards2019.html The Zappa books looks cool.

    Great article Ric! I couldn't help but recall reading about the quaint, early days of Kevin Mitnick and Kevin Poulsen as I read this and how things have evolved.

    RIP Rep Cummings! His strength, and courage will be missed in these times when these virtues seem in such short supply.

    I'm curious to get your impressions of Sidecar. IIRC, you were using Duet to use your iPad for a second screen. I'd be interested in how Apple have implemented this.

    RIP someone or another

    RIP Robert Forester. One of many actors that had great roles during the WWll movies from my youth. I'm thankful that some of them like Forester, had a revival in recent years. Perhaps Mr. Blessing or others, have some insight on what spurred casting directors to tap this vein (I'm thinking it wasn't just about directors like Tarantino or Lynch/Frost looking for 70's authenticity?).

    In all the years I've used OSX ( since Tiger) I've never had an issue with the OS (although I realize that there have been bugs just like any other software that complex). It's the developers of the other software that I use that is the problem. There are the usual suspects (cough, Pro Tools/Avid, cough) that hold up the show. It's a minor gripe for me but I feel for the big studios that have invested $50k+ for the pleasure of using the Avid ecosystem that really must hate it. But like I said, for me, what's the difference if I upgrade to the latest this October or next September? I just have to remember to made an installer before it's replaced in the App Store.

    I'm usually a year behind on OSX and that seems like enough time for "foot draggin' -cheap ass- head in the sand" developers to get with the program and update their software (if they are still in business that is). Otherwise, there's a couple of shells that can bridge some out of date plugins. In the mean time, be sure and create an installer before it's updated. Lately, you couldn't "jump" over a named update so you had to search for an old installer online. Those can be great places to pick up malware.

    Best Android TV Box No Amazon Fire products

    If you're using any kind of a Mac for your tv, you should try installing the Apple TV Aerial screensaver app. The footage is awesome and the best thing about my Apple TV IMHO. Hopefully the app will update. I just got an underwater one and the sea lions swimming around is super cool! https://9to5mac.com/2018/10/29/apple-tv-screensavers-to-mac/
