After installing Apple’s latest security update on my Mac I could no longer use the Emacs editor. The problem was easy to fix by correcting the permissions of the main binary.
I decided nevertheless to report this problem to Apple using their bug reporting system. A few days later Apple requested more information which I provided on the same day. Yesterday they closed my bug as a duplicate of another bug. Working as a software developer myself I considered this a reasonable course of action.
But when I logged into Apple’s bug reporting system this morning I discovered that I cannot access the bug that my bug is a duplicate of. As a result I will never know when the bug will be fixed and what caused it in the first place.
Thank you, Apple! 🙁
My wife and I have three computers which we use frequently: the server, my desktop and the notebook which my wife usually uses as her desktop. We have up to date backups of the server, a somewhat recent backup of my desktop but no backups of the notebook.
The system partition of one of these three machines got messed up today. Guess which one. 🙁
Google finally offer IPv6 access to their search engine. Visitors are even greeted by an animated version of the Google logo.
Well done, Google! But what took you so long? 😉
