Our New Meeting Location

September 14th, 2017 in ACAMUG

Members please note: As of October 2017 our meetings will no longer be held at the Belhaven school. Our new meeting location will be in the Media Center of the Otto Bruyns Public Library of Northfield, 241 W Mill Rd, Northfield, NJ 08225.

So please change your Contacts entry accordingly. Also note that there are two entrances to the library and to gain entrance you should use the rear entrance facing the parking lot. The main entrance will be locked as the library is closed to the public at 5:00 pm on Friday evenings. Our meetings will be in the Media Center at 7:00 pm, and is off the main library and we hope to post a “sentry” out there near the rear entrance so no one gets lost.

Anyone who has upgraded their Macs to macOS 10.13 aka “High Sierra” should be aware there is a very critical security bug that an potentially allow someone sitting at the machine to login as “root” user (essentially a super administrator) without knowing your password. I’m sure Apple will be patching this ASAP but in the meantime there is a simple procedure you can follow to mitigate the risks:

As far as I know it required direct physical access to your machine and can’t be exploited remotely but it’s worth taking a few minutes to read the above article and apply the “fix”.

Apple has posted Security Update 2017-001 to fix this problem. Consider installing it ASAP.

The Macintosh Repository

October 31st, 2017 in Apple,Link

Just bumped into this site:

An achive of lots and lots of old Mac software including apps, drivers and OS versions. Not something everyone will need but should prove useful if you ever decide to boot up that old Performa 575 that’s sitting in the basement.

They also accept software contributions so might be an excuse to clean out you stockpile of old disks.
