- Jerry’s recipe for removing Java Script in Safari:
1. Force Quit Safari If Necessary
2. From the Safari menu bar, select
Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Security
3. If the Preferences menu item is grayed out, quit Safari. Force quit if necessary. Relaunch it by holding down the shift key and clicking its icon in the Dock. From the menu bar, select
Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Privacy ▹ Remove All Website Data to get rid of any cookies or other data left by the server. Open your Downloads folder and delete anything you don't recognize.
- Jerry theorizes Java Script errors coming from “Nation Enquirer” style websites where clients click on random picture. In example: http://www.buzzfeed.com/awesomer/photos-you-really-need-to-look-at-to-understand?utm_term=.tkX1zYaWg&sub=2164772_1102366
- Sam discusses the discoveryd fix that appears in Mac OS Update 10.10.4. Jerry mentions how the OpenDNS daemon on his Server needed to de de-installed and reinstalled to resolve runaway proceessors. The conversation continues with discovery and general workflow for upgrading client machines to 10.10.4.
- Clients taking ownership and responsibility: Jerry discusses how some clients have an unrealistic expectation of monitoring software installed and endorsed by his company. Sometimes the client will deflect responsibility for issues on their computers. Allen Hancock of Watchman Monitoring mentions that there are very good ticketing workflows in their Forum, to track client issues. https://community.watchmanmonitoring.com
