Hostfully Yours


Paul & Chris are back! They’re kicking it old school. Join them as they go to warp speed. Well, just as soon as they can remove all the Google bloatware from the engineering software and find a cool external hard drive.

  • Here’s a new season of the Sauce but what about Film Frown?

  • Where is our lost episode featuring Marty Chan? Right here and here, smart ass.

  • “What browser are you using these days?” Chris answers in a blog post.

  • How to “Remove Uninvited Google Apps from Launchpad” on Macs.

  • Chris used Homebrew & the Cask to install all his applications on his Mac during his clean install. Lifehacker has a decent guide.

  • Little Snitch is a great firewall to tell you which applications are trying to connect to the web. For example, Apple location services on want to connect to the internet every 10 seconds. That seems wasteful on a desktop.

  • Chris reviews his experience with MailPile. Then he shares that he moved to Airmail.

  • Checking system stats on your Mac? iStat Menus is great or there’s GeekTool. Less expensive Monity is another option, but it doesn’t do temperature. If you are just concerned with temperature, there’s TG Pro.

  • Paul has Automatic connected to his OBD-II port in his vehicle. He can track his car’s health with his Apple Watch or his phone.

  • You need Shia LaBeouf freestyle rapping. Just do it.

  • External hard drives? Lacie makes decent drives, but Chris & Paul prefer enclosures with fans, if it is a rotating drive and not an SSD. Chris has Vantec cases for his externals. Paul recommends buying in pairs for your backup.

  • What’s on your external? Chris has some work resources like Death To The Stock Photo images. We interviewed one of the minds behind that site once.

  • Paul & Chris really like their TP-link gigabit switches.

You rock. Thanks for listening and let us know on twitter if you have any feedback.
