I will be posting everything I can on PhaseBook.org as it’s content I can control. Facebook is falling apart and I want as little as I can to do with it.
I will be reaching out to my friends and colleagues and maintaining a roll-o-dex

Doing a migration from one computer to another I’ve lost my ability to licence a software a really enjoyed. Bias Peak and Bias Sound Soap. Their licensing server has been shut down and I cannot authorize it. I understand there are downsides to dongle licensing, but in this case I think it would have saved my tool.
I say boo to bias being gone, but boo to a bad licensing system.
I recently acquired a new computer and have begun the “Migration” from old to new. I know it’s not a quick process (600+ Gb from machine to machine) but by my math this estimation, using FW800, was WAY OUT. The problem turns out that the computer was going to sleep during this migration!! Why the HELL would it do such a stupid thing? There were no options for sleeping as it’s a fresh install. Shame on Apple.
After three failed attempts, I had to find a solution to me sitting at two idle computers for 8 hours.
AND HERE IT IS!

I needed to be able to leave it also… so in an audio Macgyver moment of desperation I turn to my biggest fan. The cable for the Trackball is moved by an oscillating fan. The headphones are on top of an upside down trackball, this and the duct tape give the trackball some weight to push on the keyboard (for computer 1) the movement also pushes a button on a Magic Trackpad (computer 1)
so far attempt number four is going smoothly (knock on wood)
