Day 3 (2 and 3) 

Version: OS X 10.10 (14A238x)

Working for Me 

  • Chrome is working well. In fact it has none of the lag (slow and hanging) that Safari does right now 
  • 1Password is autofilling in Safari and Chrome now, don't know why it didn't initially work 
  • LaunchBar is a champ and continues to march along working as expected 
  • OmniGraffle 6 Professional works great 
  • Sublime Text is getting its usual workout 
  • Evernote is working as expected; the menu bar for quick notes, the full client, integration with Skitch, and browser plug-ins all work as expected 
  • Skitch is working 
  • Transporter Desktop and Sync now seems to be working though I don't have the sync icons in Finder anymore. I will uninstall and reinstall... 
    • Update: I fully uninstalled "based" on this link (old verion but very similar), http://www.drobospace.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=141813, and then reinstalled Transporter Desktop. This ended up not working as it just hung on install (status bar kept going to zero and filling over and over)... 
    • Final Attempt: I ended up Force Quitting the installation and restarting the machine. On restart I deleted the Transporter directory and the re-ran the install (Transporter Desktop.app). This actually worked; and quickly finished. All is back to working as I'd expect it to... Good to go! 
  • Dropbox is working and syncing 
  • Caffeine is doing its job keeping the OS from sleeping when I want it to 
  • Time Machine is working and, as usual, prompting me to delete old backups due to limited remaining space 
  • Sonos is staying up to date and appears to be protecting me 
  • Day One is working 
  • Hazel kicked off and ran each of the rules when I imported some photos from the weekend 
  • Fantastical has taken some calendar entries from me today - all good 
  • Safari's Share button is getting its usual exercise 
  • GPGTools Finder integration works (encrypting and decrypting files)
  • GPGTools Keychain Access seems to work 
  • Terminal is working: I've been building out a couple of Raspberry Pis, and terminaling (SSH) in, headless 
  • RealVNC Viewer is remoting into the RPis just fine 

Not Working in Some Way for Me 

  • Mail.app is crashing nearly every time I get into it, when I create a new message, open a message to read it; basically opening an email message window 
  • Mail Act-On workarounds: 
    • Archive: Ctrl+A - Keyboard Shortcut (custom Mail) 
  • GPGTools Mail.app integration does not work. It seems to sign correctly but encryption is disabled
  • Automator 
    • When recording a work-around in mail, for clip-a-tron 3001, Mail.app crashes repeatedly. As a work around, I'll try Keyboard Maestro or straight AppleScript. This may be a Mail.app issue as much as an Automator one. 
  • I've been viewing some videos about Raspberry Pi and other electronic projects on YouTube. Playing the videos in Safari is very slow. Audio is fast but video is lagging behind a bit. 

Other Things 

  • Safari continue to be very slow. Opening new tabs, in particular, is dawg ass slow. 
  • Dark Mode doesn't yet fully work, apparently. You can "turn it on" in System Preferences --> General --> Appearance. You can set it to Blue (default) or Graphite (Dark) but not much changes. For a color blind guy like me, I see that Window controls turn gray, menu bar icons use their non-color versions, and Finder's sidebar is gray but not much other than that. The window headers, status bar areas, etc. all remains bright...
