Good read, so much have changed in just a few years.
USB types are getting very confusing now, next time I will just look for Thunderbolt 4.
Say you have a big file and you want to zip it up into a few smaller files, (coz email attachment has size limit), here is how you do it.
zip -s 5m file.zip myBigFile.mov
That cmd will create these files with file size capped at 5mb
To get your original file back, install 7zip.
brew install p7zip
Then run the following to extract your original file(s) back
7za x file.zip
There are other ways but I found the above the easiest.
Open a terminal and run the following command.
sqlite3 ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.LaunchServices.QuarantineEventsV* 'select LSQuarantineDataURLString from LSQuarantineEvent'
If that’s alarming, you can add the following line to your .bash_profile file to clean up the history from time to time.
sqlite3 ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.LaunchServices.QuarantineEventsV* 'delete from LSQuarantineEvent'
This is a fun way to learn css flexbox in a tower-defense game.
First select a whole row, then do Opt Cmd =. That’s option key, command key, and the equal sign key.
I am using Chrome on osx.

Photoshop in a web browser, pretty amazing!
There is no output, no errors, no nothing. It just sits there.
Maybe related to this, who knows? https://github.com/Homebrew/brew/issues/3285
So I reinstalled brew.
/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install.sh)"
But then the install process is stuck at this line
==> /usr/bin/sudo /usr/bin/xcode-select --switch /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools
After some googling, apparently it’s caused by some combination of osx and xcode, see here: https://github.com/nodejs/node-gyp/issues/569. So I ran the following to fix the issue.
sudo xcode-select -s /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer
But then after Ctrl-C and reinstall brew, I got stuck at another line, seems like it did a git reset HEAD but stuck right after.
I tried a few other things but nothing could pass that point. Then just random guessing I checked my Software Update, and saw a 5Gb osx update sitting there waiting, I was like, why not?
So update osx, reboot, then magically brew starts working. =)
