    Purchase Suggestions?

    I’m looking to buy a Mac that I can use to backup my phone, nothing further beside browsing the internet and backing up my phone. I’ve been using my 2019 MacBook Pro but these backups have taken up plenty of space that I’ve since purged. I’ve been looking at either Mac Pros or Mac Minis, maybe...

    Windows moved after restart

    Often when I restart my Mac windows of either open or log-in apps aren't where they were before the restart, notably the "full screen" apps on my desktops are all in the same partially-off-screen position, which I find very annoying. How do I stop that behaviour once and for all? Or is this...

    Hit by dylib hijack virus...

    Update: I just flashed macOS to a USB thumb drive. The red box around the Apple logo still appeared. That rules out SSD issues. This is largely to keep others on their toes and provide information, but I do have questions. These are at the end. I am also attaching two EtreCheck reports, one...

    Mac Moving from Sierra to Monterey. Will my Bash and Python code survive?

    I am using Sierra right now but will be moving over to a new Mac soon. Many years ago I learned some basic programming (bash and python) and wrote a few little scripts that I still use a lot for work. I have since forgotten most of what I had learned, though. I read somewhere that the version...

    What can I do with my 2006 Core2Duo MBP?

    Clarification: 17" 2006 MacBook Pro Intel Core2Duo 2.33gHz (I think) Tldr; my 2006 Core2Duo MBP is useless because MacOS patchers only work with 2007 and later macs. Could I replace the cpu with a newer one to 'convert' it into a 2008 MBP? Alternatively, are there any web browsers that allow me...

    Remap external volume knob/wheel to fine volume control

Because I love the feeling of wheeling! Feels great when I'm booted in Windows, I have 100 steps of volume to always play with. On MacOS...
