For various reasons they’re slow to act, rumour has it that bash is now GPL 3.0 and Apple won’t use that, for various reasons. This shows how to get and compile and install bash
I needed to run a sudo xcodebuild -license. NB Unlike COBOL, there’s no British spelling option.
This article from askunbuntu also documents the code to test the bug.
I hit the problem with my Mac Book Mavericks build that the App Store wouldn’t run an Xcode Upgrade. It offers me the terms and conditions but there’s no continue button. This thread on the Mac support forums offers a very complex diagnostic process or proposes that you download a free application to ‘blow it through’. Having done this, ask for the Xcode upgrade using the App Store. It seems that it sets an environment variable or writes a cookie so that it knows you’ve signed in and agreed the new ToS and doesn’t offer the revised terms and conditions when you press the update button. Worked for me.
I couldn’t be bothered to go and find my usb cable for the phone and tried to use Bluetooth to connect the phone to the W8 laptop.
The phone needs a transfer agent to send pictures to the laptop. This one seems well mentioned, Google Play is mucking around, and wanted some more personal information, so I went and found the cable.
I want and need a better, faster interface for ftp and my blog server. Obvs needs to be encrypted. It seems that Windows 8.1 does not offer sftp natively but recommends WEBDAV. On my various clients I have multiple operating systems, but mainly Windows.
I had a quick poke around to see how to do this. Firstly I have an RTU for WISE-FTP through 1&1 which has great windows desktop integration but I usually use filezilla. (1and1 have moved away from WISE-FTP)
MS offer a One Drive cloud service as do Dropbox, but I want to use my 1and1 file system. (Perhaps the answer is wise ftp since that’s what they offer). Have Microsoft left this gap to enable third party products to fill it as part of non monopolistic behaviour, but surely doing the desktop integration requires the licensing of engineering rights and documentation.
Anyway Google doesn’t seem much help. Odd
I have for the moment decided to use filezilla with the –site-manager command line item. NB the — is what is used on windows as well as shell based command lines. I can find ways to go straight to my site but these require placing the password inside the shortcut.
