focuses have an option to only show specific home screen pages

when we did a partial office before omicron I used that plus geofencing to toggle distracting apps and hide certain notifications

it's takes a bit of setup, but it's really nice and ease to tweak later. I have an automated one that hides notification bubbles and all but a few critical app notifications for evenings, too. really takes the encouragement off checking apps

it can syncs across devices, too, so off means off everywhere all at once

I got a 2010 polycarbonate MacBook from an estate sale for $47. It won't charge and dies when I unplug it from the charger. The Coconut Battery program says it only has 86 cycles on the battery, but the battery status is "poor".

Reset the SMC stuff and all that to no avail. Should I just replace the battery? I guess it doesn't really matter since I bought it to have something to tinker with. Thing's fuckin mint, though.

ask your pharmacist if tarsier-ashpool is right for you


you should definitely stop trying to use that battery, whether you replace it or not

carry on then

if you want to use it off charger, yeah a battery swap should fix it. im not surprised itís completely shot, at 86 cycles over 11+ years it probably lived on a charger the whole time (not great) and if they ever chucked it in a drawer and forgot about it then it probably did a deep discharge (really not great). if you never intend to use it on battery you donít absolutely need to do the swap though (I have a titanium PowerBook in a similar situation so I just keep it plugged in all the time).

i think that's about the right era yeah. iirc it's that the ac adapter and bypass caps aren't specified to deal with worst case current demand spikes, so the machine needs a reasonably good battery to avoid random crashes at normal clock speeds

that's a lot of laptops. no one wants to ship a 100w charger instead of a 50w charger just to avoid occasionally draining the battery to 99%

did the macbooks ship with lower wattage bricks? it'd make sense, I suppose since they clocked them lower. maybe the core 2 duo switch got power down to something that'd run on a smaller brick, too. my 2006 rev. a (core duo) shipped with an 85w and exhibited that behavior. the brick was (for apple) large, maybe 50% larger than the poerbooks from the year prior?

i can't recall if undervolting and fiddling with clock allowed it to run above base without a battery, by the time it got to that point the gpu was getting tetchy and it hasn't been able to run for more than a few minutes without visual artifacting and crashing in years

i remember my 2010 13-inch pro having a smaller brick than what the 15-inch models came with, yeah. Like 60 watts

the old magsafe chargers came in 45w for the airs, 60w for the 13" mbps and 85w for the 15" and 17" mbps

the 2021 chargers are wild. the air is 30w and the 16" pro is 140w

apple's mdm is actually pretty restrictive, even when the phone is in supervised mode the user's privacy is really well protected.

There are a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market today that are just as tasty as the real thing.

airport express arrived Saturday and I got it setup after a couple of tries. the PO didn't factory reset it so i had to do that and update the firmware.

bit of a pita on initial setup because I thought I could have it on Ethernet and use it directly as an AirPlay receiver, but doing that turns it into a router and it started renaming all my macs on the network lol. going wifi only gives the "join an existing network" option so now it's fine.
