Ok, happy New Year and it seems like looking for cool little apps time, some of the ones working for me are: Rectangle. Well, I’ve used Divvy for a long time and it works but it is paid. I tried Hammerspoon, but it was hard to get what I really want which is dividing a […]

## Seeing hidden or dotfiles in MacOS Finder and iTerm Copy Mode

OK, this has always annoyed me, MacOS to be safe for ordinary people doesn’t by default does not let you look at so called dotfiles (like .bashrc) or hidden system files in Finder. This is usually fine, but there are some times when you need it. For instance if you want to drag and drop […]

## No obvious shortcuts for Superhuman Mail

OK, I’m actually a little shocked I am using this mailer for the last two years, but it has been an incredible productivity tool. The main limitation is that it is Google Mail only as a backend and that it does not have a unified inbox, so your contacts for each account are separate and […]

OK, I had this problem with my personal repo where I had copied a bunch of courses that meant I was dragging around a lot of git lfs content. The solution was to recreate the repo as a new “richtong” repo, but this meant that all the organizations where I’m working needed major surgery to […]

## The Strangeness that is Google Workspace Email Aliases (aka Google Groups)

## Now this is a real upgrade Neewer Studio Lights and OBS for a Home Zoom setup

## MagSafe 3, Magnetic Micro USB and MacBook Pro 2021 Accessories

Now that Apple has brought back the MagSafe 3 connector for the MacBook Pro 2021, it made me realize how much I miss this connector for two important reasons so off to look for magnetic connectors that fit USB C or Micro USB physical connectors. These connectors can be two pin so charging only, five […]

## Where did shared Apple iCloud Tabs go? And What’s a Reading List

OK, this was a confusing one for me. In the past, on macOS, when you clock on the Show Tabs Overview at the upper right of the Safari tab bar, I normally expect to see all the shared tabs from other devices. At least this is how it worked MacOS. It is now on the […]
