St John’s Church at the West End of Princes Street usually flies the Saltire, but it’s now flying the EU flag. Showing solidarity what Scotland things of Brexit
Crickey, i’m really a dunderheid! should’ve posted this yesterday! as it was more appropriate – the ruins of St. Andrews Cathedral. Built in the early 12th century this was Scotland’s largest cathedral and most magnificent church
The statue of Robert the Bruce ‘King of Scots’ located near the Bannockburn battle site a significant Scottish victory in the First War of Scottish Independence, and a landmark in Scottish history.
Crail – not a lot in Crail to be honest. But this view is nice.
Shortly, I will upload Photos from St. Andrews, Crail and Anstruther
Google Maps? Apple Maps? pfffft, I say nae nae!! how about ASCII maps. launch terminal type telnet mapscii.me (will work on any telnet client that uses xterm)
– use A & Z to zoom in and out
How about the weather?
Still in terminal, use the command finger email@example.com – example finger firstname.lastname@example.org
To much time on my hands? maybe! 😉
Another, probably somewhat useless command, is ‘banner’ this will output a banner of inputted text. I can’t really imagine a use for this.
you can change the width with the -w switch, here I used banner -w84
You can Update macOS / OSX Terminal.app – I recently had a iMac that refused to update from the App Store. It would appear to download the updates, reboot the system but the updates were not installed. After some troubleshooting, I found that I could install these from terminal.
After opening terminal.app run the command softwareupdate -l
The -l switch will list all available updates
This will check and list any available updates that are available for the system.
the next command must be run as root, sudo softwareupdate -iva
-i switch installs updates.
-v switch is verbose, and will display a percentage as they are installed
-a switch is for all available updates
you could use -r to install only recommended updates
Once downloaded and installed you will be prompted to reboot the system, while in terminal why not reboot with sudo reboot
Obviously while using sudo be careful, a wrong command can do a lot of damage!
other that broked systems, this could be useful writing scripts / SSH to remote systems…..
perhaps its just me, but it seemed a wee bit faster than using the App store. maybe 🙂
This command should also work an all revisions of macOS / OSX
I was lucky enough to spend a few nights in the wonderful city of Berlin! but, alas I only managed to take a fraction of photos I’d normally take as to my cameras cr1220 battery died on me (had it since 2010, didn’t know it existed until I was there)
using Photoshop, I did use the content aware fill to remove unwanted objects, can you tell what photos these were?
It’s one of ‘em Before and after shots!
This was taken on the river Spree, passing museum island looking towards the Fernsehturm, but there is a big ugly crane above the museum! – by the power of photoshop crane be gone!!
I didn’t take as many photos as I usually do, as unfortunately I had some issues with my camera. Anyway I’ll edit some and upload a new album
Today I learned – The Berlin Wall has now been down as long as it was up, the wall stood for 10316 days, and today (February 5th 2018) it is 10316 days since it fell.
Two Photos East Side Gallery and a bit of it near Checkpoint Charlie, taken back in 2011.
