  5. So I'll preface that I'm primarily a Mac user but that doesn't mean I am automatically onboard with putting all my documents on iCloud Drive. I have used Dropbox first, then Google Drive and iCloud Drive. I have no interest in using Microsoft OneDrive solution since Microsoft has a hard enough time keeping there Azure network up, there Live and Hotmail accounts not hacked, they have just proven time and time again how unreliable Microsoft has been in the cloud environment so far. My documents are important to me so we are going to automatically say no (for now) to OneDrive. Dropbox I liked dropbox and don't really have a whole lot of negative besides its blocked by just about any Enterprise. The plus is its not favored with Apple which has iCloud and not favored with Google Chromebooks which has Google Drive and not favored by Microsoft which has OneDrive. So Dropbox is the universal drive that works on everything and is available on just about any app that has saving to a cloud drive. Google Drive So the negative is it favors using its own Google Docs format. I learned recently that the excel spreadsheet I uploaded got converted when I used a Google Editor on my iPad. I didn't realize it was Google Editing my document that was stored on Google Drive since it didn't display anything. But as you edit your excel document it now becomes a google doc. When I tried to launch that saved file back on my mac using Excel it didn't recognize it since it was now a Google Doc. So I had to go into Google Doc and export as Excel and I had access to it again but now some of my formulas were all jacked. The positive is if you use Gmail (like I do) for your primary email client it obviously integrates with Google Drive very well. So instead of sending the entire large attachment via email (especially since email attachments are limited to size) you can instead choose a link to the file on your google drive and give permissions. It's pretty cool and very helpful but if you don't use Gmail, then probably not a big deal. Another pro is if you utilize Google Photos, Gmail, Google Drive, etc.. it all shares the same storage bucket and its not very pricey for all the data you can get from Google. iCloud Drive Obviously if you have Apple products (or an Apple ID) you automatically get 5GB of iCloud Drive for simple things like store your music, photos, Documents, Desktop, Safari Bookmarks, Saved Passwords, etc.. Which makes it nice when you log into any of your Apple devices with your Apple ID you now have access to those items. So the negative is not everyone supports iCloud Drive as a saved destination like Dropbox, then Google Drive. Also no ability to share files with anyone. The website icloud.com is slow. If you wanted to create or edit files on the website you need to your documents to be in Apple Docs format (pages, keynote, numbers, etc). Conclusion I use both iCloud Drive for syncing all my day to day stuff with all my Apple products. Its great when you get a new phone or laptop because either it got damaged, stolen or lost and you get all your important stuff back like it was never missing. I have Google Drive for big files and anything I want to share with someone else. No one else seems to do that better and integrate so well with your mail.
  6. Its kinda funny, as I saw in the tracking they were going to deliver my new Macbook Pro today I made sure I worked from home (didn't want to miss the delivery) and I was pacing all morning like a kid the day before Christmas. When I saw the UPS driver begin backing down our long driveway I instantly grew a huge smile and threw my shoes on and ran out into the freezing cold to meet the driver halfway. I scribbled my signature and ran into the house to unbox my new laptop. Now I have to vent some disappointments I noticed right away I miss the fact the apple logo doesn't light up. Come on, that was a huge cool factor that set Apple apart from everyone else. Now its gone.. no longer an option Another cool factor that I liked was the power cord had a light that was either amber while charging or green when fully charged... no longer is there a light. We all have been saved by the magnetic break away power cord. You trip over it and it pulls away from your laptop not taking your laptop to the floor. No longer, now a tight fitting USB-C charges your laptop (thank goodness I paid for apple care)
  7. I ran into some fan issues on my 2012 Macbook Pro and I'm sure its because its been in some pretty dirty places. Had the fan replaced at Apple for $100 but thought it may be time to upgrade. Also it allowed me to give my wife a very nice laptop that is still working in great order. She loves working with photos and thought she would enjoy using a laptop that doesn't limp along. So this very second my new Macbook Pro (2017) just arrived via UPS so I'm going to save and close this entry so I can open it up and get going.
  8. This is more like notes on how to use Wireshark so probably won't find a very in depth discussion but hopefully enough to get you going. You should have wireshark already installed. Capturing Packets On the menu, click Capture - Options Click the name of an interface under Interface List to start capturing packets on that interface. For example, if you want to capture traffic on the wireless network, click your wireless interface. As soon as you click Start, you’ll see the packets start to appear in real time. Wireshark captures each packet sent to or from your system. If you’re capturing on a wireless interface and have promiscuous mode enabled in your capture options, you’ll also see other the other packets on the network.
