When you install Mountain Lion upgrade on the Mac, don’t be surprised if your Java installation gets blasted. I use CrashPlan for Cloud and local backup to the Mac. Crashplan depends on Java. Oops.

Mac OS X Server is an App

On 2013.04.28, in Technology, by Greg

The server-specific server applications and work group management and administration software tools from Mac OS X Server are now offered as “Server App,” an add-on package for OS X sold through the Mac App Store along with Server Admin Tools 10.7, available from the Apple support web site. There is no separate Server OS. This means that if you want server, you first install the Mountain Lion desktop release, a $19.99 upgrade to Lion, then separately download the Server App, also for $19.99. There is no separate server edition of Mountain Lion, just as there was no separate server edition of Lion. You cannot download the Mountain Lion Server App to a Mac that does not first have Mountain Lion installed.

Droid Update #3

On 2013.04.27, in Technology, by Greg

I switched to the Samsung Galaxy S3 in July of 2012. So I have been using it for nine months. The verdict: excellent, no problems. Especially good with the latest release of Android. Only complaint is battery life could be better … not as good as the iPhone 5, but good enough. The Galaxy S4 should be available soon, and there is a rugged version planned for this summer.
