Exchange Online Powershell on macOS

March 2, 2021 Matt Thornton 0

A while ago, I ‘eugh-ed’ over the steps required to get remote powershell working even in Windows. I think back then this would never have worked on macOS, but here we are, a little less than a year later, and I’ve for some reason got it working on macOS Big […]

I finally moved my Music library to a NAS

January 29, 2021 Matt Thornton 0

A vaguely tech-related philosophical-ish thought-piece. Tedious irrelevant tech challenge #7582: I still buy music. On physical media. CD mainly. Tedious philosophical quandry #29: are streaming services eroding our emotional connection with music? I don’t know why I still buy physical media. The economics of it don’t really make sense when […]

GoPro still has an issue with some SanDisk SD cards

January 23, 2021 Matt Thornton 0

In true form for this blog of documenting obscure things that will be inconsequential to 99.999999% of normal people, here’s (yet) another. My — well-documented on Twitter, but as yet undocumented here — fallout with Drift Innovation’s Ghost cameras led me to emergency buy three GoPro Hero Session cameras – […]

Well this was a “fun” little technology frustration. We wanted to get the Disney+ app on our Sony Bravia 4K HDR television – specifically – the Sony KD-55XD8005. By all accounts, Disney+ is supported on all Android-based televisions and ours is Android. Have heard from plenty of other people who […]

This is a long overdue (and tedious) write-up of my experience of custom-building a router table. (Clarification: router as in r-OW-ter table as opposed to r-OO-ter (i.e. the box you get from your ISP for your home Wifi. The pronounciation is annoying, especially for someone who works in computers. Anyway.) […]

VMWare Fusion / Big Sur / Ubuntu / Black screen

December 5, 2020 Matt Thornton 0

Recently updated to macOS Big Sur. I’m not sure why I do this sort of thing quite so freely… I always naively assume everything will be OK. And so far, Big Sur vs Catalina is just a bit nightmare. I’m sure there’s a huge amount of “don’t like change” in […]

The scenario is: SharePoint… open in Windows Explorer is working great and then mysteriously, BOOM, it no worky no mo. \\server\DavWWWRoot\etc is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. A device […]
