ms: Differences in File and Printer Sharing in Windows Vista

"The default workgroup name in Windows Vista has been changed to
WORKGROUP. In Windows® XP Home Edition, the default workgroup
name is MSHOME. If you upgrade a computer running Windows XP
Home Edition to Windows Vista, it will keep its existing workgroup name.

However, new computers with Windows Vista can have a different
workgroup name than the other computers on your network. With
different workgroups, it takes more time and effort to view all of
the computers on the network."

Create ISO CD/DVD image (.iso) with Mac OS X Tiger

"... you need to create the ISO file in a directory in which you have write
access. Under OS X this is by default your home directory and everything
inside it. This is basic Unix stuff, and I’d recommend you spend a few minutes
with a Unix command line primer before you use a command like dd which
has the potential to write garbage all over your hard drive."

bit-tech: Linux CLI 101

"For our next episode in the bit-tech Linux series, I was asked to write a short
article on what many Linux converts find to be one of the scariest things of
all - the command line interface, or CLI. Most users know that it's there, but
few grasp the tremendous power it holds. "

dmiessler.com - lsof is the Linux/Unix über-tool.

"As you can see, lsof has a truly staggering number of options. You can
use it to get information about devices on your system, what a given user
is touching at any given point, or even what files or network connectivity
a process is using. lsof replaces my need for both netstat and ps entirely.
It has everthing I get from those tools and much, much more."

*THE* classic Unix horror story

"Unix Recovery Legend - This classic article from Mario Wolczko first appeared
on Usenet in 1986."



Related & must-read: HOWTO recover deleted files on an ext3 file system,
by Carlo Wood

"On February 7th, 2008, I accidently deleted my whole home directory:
over 3 GB of data, deleted with rm -rf. The only backup that I had was
from June 2007. Not being able to undelete was unacceptable. So, I ignored
what everyone tried to tell me and started to learn how an ext3 file system
really works, and what exactly happens when files are deleted...

Three weeks and nearly 5000 lines of code later, I had recovered every
file on my disk."

Colin Viebrock - File Sharing from Linux to OS X: A Quick Guide

"Here’s a very quick guide on how to get Apple file-sharing going on your
Debian box, and how to make that server show up automatically in your
Mac’s Finder. These instructions are specific to Debian (i.e. packages, paths,
etc.), but should be easily modified to work on other flavours of Linux."

dreamlight.com - Mac OS X Tiger lookupd bug & hosts block fix

"An easy way to do this is to simply assign the Internet address 0.0.0.0 to
js.adsonar.com (or any other problem or undesired domain). This way if
your browser comes across a link to js.adsonar.com it won't try to look it up
online (which is what triggers lookupd to crash) and instead will just use the
address 0.0.0.0 which is nothing more than an alias for your own local Mac."

How To Prevent A USB Drive From Running Anything Automatically
In Windows


"The Achilles heel which viruses exploit is the autorun.inf file. Autorun.inf file
is a simple instruction file present in removable media like CDs, DVDs and
USB drives. This file contains a series of commands that triggers the opera-
ting system to start an executable, tells it which icon to use, and which ad-
ditional actions to make available.

afp548.com - launchd in Depth

"When Apple decided to overhaul the 30 year old system for starting and
maintaining processes on UNIX it had to think big. launchd can do the jobs
of init, mach_init, xinetd, RC, SystemStarter, watchdog, and cron. It is Ap-
ple's stated intention that they want to eliminate all of those services in fa-
vor of launchd at some point in the future. There are two main programs
in the launchd system, launchd and launchctl. Briefly:

launchd manages the daemons at both a system and user level. Similar to
xinetd, launchd can start daemons on demand. Similar to watchdogd, la-
unchd can monitor daemons to make sure that they keep running. launchd
also has replaced init as PID 1 on Mac OS X and as a result it is respon-
sible for starting the system at boot time.

launchctl is our window into the world of launchd. Using launchctl we can
load and unload daemons, start and stop launchd controlled jobs, get sys-
tem utilization statistics for launchd and its child processes, and set envi-
ronment settings."

Maps. All other sites work fine. Tried the usual fixes (reset etc.) but no relief.

If I go to a page like a hotel reservation where a Google map comes up to
the side, no crash, but I DO get an alert to "upgrade" to Google Chrome.
Hmmm..."

techcrunch - Apple's AI if by Air

"Pairing the AirPods is incredibly easy, thanks to the W1 chip. The method
is so easy in fact that Apple does not use the word pairing anywhere in its
instruction manual - using the word 'connect' instead. It's marketing, but it's
also a fair differentiation between the baroque drama that is most Bluetooth
pairing sessions and the process of connecting AirPods."

wikihow.com - How to Make a DMG File on a Mac

"One way to store or group files on a Mac is to create a Disk Image. A Disk
Image is a file which has the properties of a separate hard drive or CD and
allows for greater password protection and compression. It has a size limit
and options for encryption to keep your files safe and secure. While there
are a few applications that perform this task for you, it is recommended
that you complete this process manually."

How to Enable Network Discovery and Configure Sharing Options in Windows 10

"If your Windows 10 computer or device can't view other computers on the
network, two things are probably at fault: You either assigned the incorrect
network profile (public instead or private) or network discovery is turned off
for some reason."

"For some reason they changed the naming convention to 11.1 instead of 11.0.1. so to get your command to work, it has to be:"

Code:
sudo softwareupdate -d --fetch-full-installer --full-installer-version 11.1

wd forum: I would like to share with you how to fix the security vulnerability CVE-2018-18472

"Access SSH and edit file (e.g. with 'nano')
/var/www/Admin/webapp/includes/languageConfiguration.php

Additional security settings you should consider

Disable 'remote access' in the UI
Change 'connection options' from 'automatic' to 'manual', this disables UPnP
(thanks to @WDMyBookDead for that hint! They posted a screenshot)
Disable UPnP in your router
Disable factory reset:"

windows10forums.com - Windows Defender false threat on Windows 10

"Windows Defender - It claims in its "Threat Blocked" report that the file has
'Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml'. Most amazingly when I run a custom scan on this
file it says "0 threats found", but it will still remove the file periodically when I
try to use it even if this removal does not happen each time I use it.

Windows Security > Virus & threat protection > Manage settings > Add
or remove exclusions

What is the "lsd" process on OS X, and why is it using so much CPU power?

"It seems that lsd gets stuck on _LSCreateRegistrationData for a certain app. If you're having the same issue, follow the guide below.

Open activity monitor and search for lsd
Get the PID of the lsd owned by the root user
Open the terminal
Enter sudo sample PID-HERE (Of course, replacing PID-HERE with the PID you got in step 2)
If you're having the same issue, there should be something about _LSCreateRegistrationData in the call graph (near the top of the whole output)
Enter sudo lsof -p PID-HERE
You should be able to recognise an app package within that output. Try deleting or updating it and see if it solves the issue"

ad - Mac waking up every 2 hours. Wake reason: EC.RTC (Alarm)

"In Terminal, use pmset -g log | grep ' wake' to see scheduled events.
Run "pmset -g" to see system-wide power settings, and look for "tcpkeepalive".
If tcpkeepalive is "1", that's what is causing the computer to wake up every 2
hours, so I turned it off using command "sudo pmset -a tcpkeepalive 0".
This fixed my issue completely."
