    MBP late 2018. i9 + eGPU.Monterey, 12.3.1 I'm stumped here. PMset (power management) is off the charts for the last 3+ months. At random times (and OFTEN) it's running at 90%+ of the CPU. It'll launch, run high, terminate and relaunch. I've removed everything, did an SMC and the PRAM resets...

    This is a poll. If forced, would you pick Apple to abandon computers or mobile devices, under a hypothetical situation? A recent thread questioning what seems like more hype over the upcoming MacBook event than the recent iPhone event made me curious about something. I have my own reasons why...

    OS X Bungies Oni on MBP and Trash Can?

    Got a bit nostalgic for some Oni Goodness after spending some time on this Forum. Could not get it to run on my Trash Can running 10.14.6 but thought I might have it on a mid 2014 MBP running High Sierra and Lo and Behold it fired right up!! Vs 1.2 via the Omni Group Mac OS Intel Port.
