Yeah, you two in the back that wanted Vorbis support..

this update updates Safari on Mojave and The Cat to 14.1, build 15611.1.21.161.7, 15611.. this fix was already rolled into Big Spur 11.3.1..

gently caress I was hoping they'd address this "problem repeatedly occurred" stuff in Safari that's made my Dad's installation useless.

Holy good gravy do I wish Chrome would do back/forward two-finger swiping like Safari does, with the whole page overlaying over the current one so you can pull it into view and peek at it and put it away again without actually navigating all the way to it, instead of that dumb little arrow-tab thing that fades into view on the left or right edge and you never know whether you pulled far enough for it to "take"

Or failing that I wish Safari would figure out how to anchor to the forums post that the "last read" point in your bookmarks links to and doesn't reflow it into some unknowable netherworld as soon as the embedded tweets all expand, like Chrome seems to have no trouble doing

Intel or M1? Did 11.3.1 work for you?

Intel, but I've also swapped docks to a CalDigit for other reasons. I did the upgrade last night, and it didn't crash this morning, so... maybe?

That seems to be the only good thing about Chrome. Have you tried Firefox?

Not lately, but ...

It seems to behave identically to Chrome, including the little left/right arrow tab things instead of the Safari-style pull-over.

I use iClip, myself. It's pretty solid.

I've run into some limitations of iMovie (can't export 60fps if the source is bigger than 1080p, forced 16:9 crop rectangle) so I'm looking for a replacement. The video editing I do is pretty light, just trimming and cropping 60fps game recordings down to small shareable clips.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a (preferably free) video editor?

DaVinci Resolve. It's probably overkill for what you're doing but really is a fantastic free program.

Somehow I trimmed, cropped, and exported video but my 5 second clip somehow has an extra two hours added on now. But it is 60fps so this will work, thanks!

What's the deal with running a Big Sur VM in Big Sur on the M1s? One thing my 2014 MBP struggles with is running an OSX VM smoothly, so I'm wondering how well it works/is possible for when I eventually upgrade.

This is a surprisingly hard thing to Google, because it always assume you mean the host machine.

Welp, just installed pfSense 2.5.1 on a 2012 Mac Mini, with both the OEM 1 TB HDD and a 512GB Hynix Gold SSD (pfSense on the SSD.)

It automatically recognized the Built-in Ethernet (claims its a Broadcom Gigabit) and also auto-recognized the Apple Thunderbolt 2 to Gigabit Ethernet..

Should be good enough to manage my coming gigabit connection (it's 400 at the moment) and the gaggle of IoT and other network devices

Thought about an EdgeRouter Lite 3, but Ubiquiti seems to be getting raked over the coals lately for their security mistakes, and why not put the Mini to good use?

Apple decided to cut it off from Big Sur anyway..

Plus the 8 GB of RAM is a lot more than the 512 MB of RAM that I'd get on the ERL-3.. hopefully that and the 2.6 GHz quad-core will compensate for the lack of hardware acceleration/offloading I'd get on ERL-3..

It doesn't work today. It might in the future.

Mike Roy, VMWare manager posted:

macOS VMs are not in scope in the short term. There are challenges there which will require Apple to work with us to resolve.

Basically, VMWare needs more information and support from Apple on the Apple Silicon boot process before they can commit to a product. Until then, they're focused on supporting Linux VMs on Apple Silicon.

As far as I know, Parallels does not yet boot macOS on M1. However, based on their willingness to market running the Windows Insider preview, they might be more willing to hack something together without Apple's support. (It isn't actually legal to run ARM Windows on Parallels on a M1 Mac, even though it's easy to do.)

In summary, things are still a little murky on what operating systems will be fully supported as VM guests on Apple Silicon. I think there's reasons to be optimistic, that the wheels are just turning and it's gonna take a little while for big corporations to be ready to announce things, but for now we have to wait.

After the pfSense WireGuard debacle earlier this year, you shouldn't be installing it on anything imo.

Having read into other drama related to pfSense, that was probably a good idea even before the WireGuard thing, but after? There's simply no reason to believe pfSense knows how to write secure code, contract for others to write secure code, etc.

The responses to that article are hilarious, especially considering the whole licensing thing.

Yeah, VMWare has long been consistent about not wanting to piss other companies off by making license violations easy for VMWare users. They weren't gonna change that policy now just because everyone's excited about M1.

For example, Apple's MacOS X licenses used to prohibit running it on anything but bare metal Apple-manufactured hardware. During that time, VMWare explicitly did not support Mac guests. Then one year (presumably after years of people lobbying) Apple added language to the Mac OS X Server license which permitted running it as a guest so long as the host hardware was a Mac. But since that was only added to the Server license, VMWare still refused to allow virtualizing the "Client" edition of OS X.

(eventually Apple smoothed that out too iirc)

I think I fixed my Touch Bar problem. I drained the MacBook Pro battery completely and charged it back up and the issue seems to be completely gone. I wish Apple told me to try that. I'm going to keep monitoring it and if the issue doesn't crop back up, going to cancel my fruit stand appointment this Friday.
