User and group IDs are unsigned, i.e. always positive. However, on two's-complement systems, a signed value -1 is represented in the same way as the largest possible unsigned value – 65535 (0xFFFF) in 16-bit fields, 4294967295 (0xFFFF'FFFF) in 32-bit fields. In some operating systems the "nobody" user has the largest possible UID – not special in the OS, ...

I don't have enough points to reply to Chealion's post but to add on to it I'd start with listing the interfaces networksetup -listallnetworkservices Once you have the interface you'd like to change you can do the below (I'm using the Wi-Fi but you can do any other interface) sudo networksetup -setdnsservers Wi-Fi empty sudo networksetup -setdnsservers ...

From our experience here, it doesn't matter if you're downgrading or installing OS X from scratch. Also, we had this issue with physical as well as (VMware Fusion 8.1.1 Pro) virtual machines with exactly the described symptoms. Upgrading seems to work OK. The cause seems to be that copying the installation file downloaded from the Apple App Store (called ...

For me the best option is contexts. Just check their site, app is amazing and beat all other solutions (and believe my, I try almost all of them). It's not yet perfect, but for me, competition is miles behind.

If you are using Safari, it may seem like the physical .ICS file is opened immediately in Calendar. In fact, the .ICS file is saved to your Downloads directory then opened by Calendar. In Chrome, the default behavior may ask you to pick a location to Download the file. In Firefox, it will ask you how to want to handle .ICS files now and in the future. You ...

You could use the little tool I wrote, that sets the commonly used environment variables for proxies. Usage is straightforward: Compile it with xCode. Add: eval `./path/to/export-proxies` to your .profile, .bashrc, or .bash_profile. After that you can use variables like $HTTP_PROXY, $http_proxy, $HttpProxy, etc. for all protocols (HTTP, FTP, SOCKS) ...

Quoting from the Ask Ubuntu Forums: Run Disk Utility and click on your internal hard disk (the disk itself, not the partition under it). Then click on the Partition tab.

It is impossible to run a .bat on OS X. BAT files are Windows only. Try looking for a .sh, as it is the equivalent for UNIX based systems (OS X included). EDIT: After a little bit of reading, look into CRAN, it might provide you with what you need.

UPDATE 2: We were able to track it down to an update of security software called Cylance Protect. After uninstalling it, the Simulator worked again. UPDATE: It just happened again! About a week after reformatting our macs, we're all getting the same issue, at the same time. My coworker just fixed the problem by getting his mac re-imaged. Looks like the ...

My SOLUTION: Use a different microSD-to-USB adapter. Really. "Bad one": LG MicroSD Adapter, the size of a regular SD card. With this adapter, all files are read only. Good one: Photo Capture the spot. It is a bulky adapter for micro SD/TF cards. With this adapter, all files are read/write. I switch the card from one adapter to the ...

The manual approach mentioned above by deleting and adding a new default gateway with the route command solved the problem for me, but it was just a temporary fix since the wrong gateway was set again upon reboot. To solve this once and for all, I first removed all interfaces under System Preferences/Network, and then added back those who felt necessary. In ...

I got the answer from @glennjackman comment. I tried it out and it worked.

Not Google's emoji, but similar: if you have an font file (in .ttf format) containing emoji, you can replace Apple's emoji font with that font, as described in the GitHub repo for Emoji One: Mac OS Instructions: Using the latest OS (El Capitan), I was able to load this emoji file in less than a minute.

Another solution would be to use Alfred. It has a feature called clipboard snippets which allows you to paste any text anywhere. I use it for pasting 'Lorem ipsum' text when I need dummy text. So I press CMD+ALT+C, Alfred pops up, then type lorem, press ENTER and a bunch of dummy text is pasted in my code editor, or design software. In Alfred v3 there is a ...

Usually I do a grep on the device file (you need to know some specific text on the files you are looking) and I get the text I want. I just need to cut the needed data. This usually works well for all non encrypted filesystems, but requires some manual works and to discriminate the last version (vs. many of temporary files created and deleted by editors). ...

Windows-1252 is one of the most common encodings out there. But it goes under different names at times such as CP-1252 and Windows Latin 1. Looking at the “Plain Text Encoding” options when saving a file with TextEdit in Mac OS X 10.11.5 (El Capitan), you can see that “Western (Windows Latin 1)” is right there in that list. It would be strange if it wasn’t ...

This question is fairly old, but I thought I would mention about the LogTail app for Mac OS X (10.10+) as it will probably suit your needs. It is not free, but is fairly cheap and available in the Mac App Store now. It provides filter and highlight capabilities and also remote log file viewing (over SSH), bookmarking, search, share etc. It is a definitely a ...

There's now a better way! See man dot_clean since OS X 10.5. dot_clean -n . will not just delete the dot underbar files in and below the current directory, it'll merge their information into the parent file if it's not already there (and I infer that you want -n to also delete the dot underbar file if there is no matching native file).

When you say "Is it just the Seagate drive or is it the Mac/Win data?" I am assuming you mean "is it the entire contents of the drive or just the Mac/Win data?"

According to this Apple support page, "You can only use one page orientation for your document. Pages doesn't support a mix of portrait and landscape in the same document."

Several possibilities occur to me: A Mint disk made in the way you describe should be bootable in both BIOS/CSM/legacy mode and in EFI mode.
