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