PSA: Mac Users Please Don’t Install The Public Beta

Hi friends!

Tomorrow, Apple’s making the Public Beta of Yosemite available. Unless you are smarter than your average bear, more resilient than your typical feudal lord, more capable of crisis management than a battle-hardened PR specialist for the oil industry, and more paranoid about data loss than your average healthcare system DBA, I do not recommend installing it on your primary system.

IF you choose to ignore me, and IF you do it anyway, you can play around with some of the new features.

However, you need to do at least this much before you can upgrade:

  1. Make a FULL DISK backup of your machine before installing Yosemite. Not a Time Machine backup. Not a CrashPlan backup. A full disk backup. If you don’t know how to do this, ask, but if you don’t know how to do this, you should not install the Public Beta.
  2. Unplug that disk and put it somewhere safe.

Okay. I feel better now.

It means the end times, Ray.

what does mean?

Since I have been video gamer, there is one company whose games are above all the others, and that’s Bungie.

I’ve been playing Bungie games since Marathon came out on floppy disk for the first round of PowerMacs back in the early 1990s. Marathon, Marathon 2, Marathon Infinity, Myth, Myth 2, and then game that launched a whole console: Halo.

The thing I love about their games is that they create an entire world. They don’t just create the veneer, they build the whole thing. They build the mythos, the belief systems, the milieu, if you will. And then they score they hell out of it with awesome music.

And Destiny combines a gorgeous world, beautiful music, and great story with a level treadmill that was so effective at addicting me with World of Warcraft.

I just want you all to know

That if I never see you again, I love you all. I got a Destiny beta code, and I know a good addiction when I see one. It’s been real, all.

This is how I felt about a network I saw today.

“There is no one in North Carolina, or likely in all of American politics, quite like Art Pope. He is not just a wealthy donor seeking to influence politics from the outside, nor just a government official shaping it from within. He is doing both at the same time — the culmination of a quarter- century spent building a sphere of influence that has put him at the epicenter of North Carolina government and moved his state closer to the conservative vision he has long imagined.” —

In N.C., conservative donor Art Pope sits at heart of government he helped transform - The Washington Post

I’m boggled. And glad I don’t live in North Carolina.

Well. Shit. Who wants to help me build shelves?

So that’s how Planet of the Apes happened!

The Girl Who Survived The Brain-Eating Amoeba -

One year ago, Kali Hardig went swimming at an Arkansas water park and the next day was rushed to the hospital where doctors diagnosed her with a rare, 99% fatal condition: a brain-eating amoeba. This is the miraculous story of how she lived.
