Just a quick note for those wondering;
YES YOU CAN! Use a 27″ iMac in Target Display Mode with a non-Apple device on the other end of the cable!
The 27″ iMac (last sold in 2010) can be used as DisplayPort monitor. This is important!; the 24″ iMacs that came after the 27″ also have a Target Display Mode, but they require a ThunderBolt connection, as opposed to a Mini-DisplayPort connection.

Hello, macOS Sierra!
macOS… that name… so… long… ago…
It has been, what?, 11 years? 12? … System 9, that was the last OS to be called macOS. The name change does not change anything regarding the update cycle, although on one of my macs, the upgrade went horrifically bad! I ended up rebooting in Recovery mode and installing macOS from there.
For getting the development enviroment back up, not much to be done!
Apache could not find the default server certificates in
so after correcting those paths in
and restarting Apache, all’s well!
sudo nano /etc/apache2/extra/httpd-ssl.conf
sudo apachectl restart
As always; feel free to comment or ask questions :)
Recently I fell off the wagon; I wanted more gaming and Apple only wanted more thinness and more quietness. (And more money, but who doesn’t).
So I got myself an Asus ROG G752VY-GC174T. Awesome laptop, I got to say, but… Continue reading “Thinking about buying Asus ROG Gaming laptop? Great choice, but keep this in mind!”

Update: as announced and expected, Apple has replaced DiscoveryD with mDNSResponder in 10.10.4. For those of you running 10.0.4, this article no longer applies. In case you’re stuck on 10.10.0, .1, .2 or .3, read on :)
A long long title, but accurately descriptive :P Poor English? Perhaps, but it does say what is to be said;
If you have experienced one of the following issues, then you should read on;
- Your computer’s name is already in use, your computer has been renamed to iMac (2)
- Your IP address is already in use (even when you’re the only one at home)
- Opening a website in Safari takes “forever”
- You cannot find your (other) computer on the network (even though you’re sure it’s turned on)

Lucky enough to have a Macbook Pro 17″ with an ExpressCard/34 slot? Then you’re not lucky enough to have built-in USB 3.0. We can fix that! You need to spend about 10 to 15 USD. Interested? Read on! It took me months just to find this post which gave me a 10 minute solution.

I too have been captured by “the need to get certified”. Certified Secure offers training and exams and ultimately certificates. SQL-injections, Path-traversal, Cross-Site Scripting, Cross-Server Request Forgery etc. etc. It’s a lot to learn and for me – being a developer – and for you – assuming you are one too, reading my blog – it is a necessity!

Yosemite introduces a lot of great features. I personally love Handoff where you can start a document or e-mail on one device and seamlessly continue it on a different one. I already had it working between my iPhone 5s and iPad Air but soon found that my Macbook Pro did not comply to the technical requirements.
I got it working now! If you want to know how; then read on!

With 10.11 El Capitan I followed the instructions to re-enable Continuity and found that my WiFi stopped working (‘No WiFi Hardware Found’). Turns out, all I needed to do was to disable kext-signing check with
sudo nvram boot-args=kext-dev-mode=1

While Redmond is starting their photocopiers (the age old story of how Microsoft keeps copying instead of innovating), we Mac users start our updates. OSX 10.10 Yosemite brings Apache 2.4 and PHP 5.5 to our playground, but not everyone is happy with that. Also, not all software survives the upgrade. Here is what I had to do to fix my development environment.
