The Coronavirus COVID-19 has already affected millions of people and although there is still a high degree of uncertainty with regards to how it will continue to evolve it will no doubt continue to have a major effect, not only from a humanitarian viewpoint, but on global economies and on all types of businesses.
I use TextExpander on OSX to expand text and code snippets and since I upgraded to Mojave I’ve notice TextExpander is often blocked with ‘Secure Input prevents expansion’.
So I finally got fed up of this and tried to work through how to understand which app is causing the issue.
I’ve been a Mac user for well over 10 years but lately I have been using a small Windows 10 GPD Pocket 2 when out on the road as it is small enough to carry and powerful enough to carry out a reasonable amount of tasks.
I’m a little finicky about my OSX setup and although it has taken me a little while I am now in a place where I have a pretty defined Windows 10 setup which a couple of colleagues have been pressing me to share, so here goes:
When we first started Storage Made Easy (or SMEStorage as it was in its original incarnation) we had a vision of software that provided a unification hub for corporate data, a single place where companies could manage content and set common policies for their company data..
Our vision embraced multicloud early, in fact way before multicloud was in-vogue the company’s tagline was ‘SMEStorage the multicloud company’.
The very first Cloud connector we added was Amazon S3, way before Amazon Web Services was the behemouth it is today.
I tend to mainly use a Mac but also use a small Windows PC, particularly if I am on the road and don’t really want to carry and laptop case.
The MacBook I use is a MacBook 12″ with an M7 processor and 16GB of memory. It is adequate enough for light development tasks and normal day to day business life.
