Using RSync and BitLocker for Windows with OSX

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.


Programmatically sending an iMessage from OSX

For an internal service we had a need to programmatically send an Apple iMessage from a  Mac Mini when it had completed a sequence of certain tasks.

The advantage of an iMessage was that, unlike using an SMS Gateway, the costs are free. You just need an Apple phone that can be paired with the Mac Mini for use of the iMessage capability.
