Downloaded a new version of Hugo from Github on
my new MacBook Air, and it wouldn’t run, because it was not branded
with the Mark Of The Apple. You can force any app (even CLI-only) to
run by right-clicking them from a Finder window and begging for
permission to run unsigned apps. But it seems silly to have to switch
from keyboard to mouse just to run a command-line tool from the
command-line, so I wrote the trivial script
#!/usr/bin/env bash xattr -c "$1" exec "$@"
This probably won’t be enough in the upcoming Big
This does not remove all extended attributes, because in Catalina,
there’s a brand new “this specific application can always open this
file” attribute called
which you can see but not touch.
This almost makes sense…
Just received a letter from NANCY PELOSI (all caps). The outside of the envelope reads:
John, someone had to stand up to the bully in the White House.
Dear NANCY, all the masks are off, and we’ve seen who the bully in the House is. I’m not planning to open this… missive, because I’m not sure my sewer pipes can handle the load.
California has guaranteed election-month chaos by promising to count ballots postmarked by the 3rd that arrive up to 17 days later.
…or until they decide they’ve manufactured enough.
IMHO, the choice is pretty stark this year: you can have Western Civilization or Kamala Harris, but not both. Definitely not both.
Markdown formatting and simple HTML accepted.
Sometimes you have to double-click to enter text in the form (interaction between Isso and Bootstrap?). Tab is more reliable.
