January 3, 2021 Matt Thornton 0

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.

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 […]
