-In a rarity, Joe and Sam are recording without Jerry
-Joe is in the state of Washington and they discuss the possibility of meeting up on the west coast
-With all of the security features and changes with new hardware, the guys discuss the need to get your hands on current hardware to make sure you as a consultant are familiar with changes in behavior.
-Sam has a saga to share about issues related to his own computer. He spins a yarn to take listeners through every gory detail, including:
- Reinstall from recovery
- Using dscl to create users
- Recreating/deleting .AppleSetupDone
- Choosing Spanish as the language
- Recreating the user account
- Changed UID back to 501
- Deleted /var/folders/zz
-Sam wonders if Joe has realized that he had forgotten something in preparation for his trip
Patience is a virtue. Or at least it's a learned skill in our business. End users don't always know when to "wait it out" and let a process complete.
-Joe was having an issue importing contacts for a client and fields that were not supported in Exchange. Another issue was making a contact listed by company instead of First Name/Last Name.
