        As much as I despise Java, certain key tasks still grind to a halt when it breaks. Some day I'll be free of Java, but today is not that day.

          (If OS X can’t find AirPort Utility upon joining an unconfiged base station, it throws an error but remains connected instead of bailing.)

            So I had to zip and then delete the current version of AirPort Utility to make my Mac join the network so I could configure via Windows.
            dmnelson
              Also OS X wants to auto-launch AirPort Utility when it sees an unconfigured unit. If the utility isn't compatible it won't even associate.

                To get them configured properly, I had to run AirPort Utility 5.6.1 under Windows in VirtualBox. Like an animal.

                  This weekend I helped a friend set up WDS between two older AirPort units. Workaround to run 5.6 utility doesn't work reliably on 10.10.3…

                    Normally I like Apple's way of doing things, but not AirPort Utility. For the love of god why can't it be it web-based like everyone else!?

                      It’s criminal to sell an online subscription that you can’t actually cancel online, but have to call customer service during business hours.

                        Just happened with Grimm. But I can’t blame them: Prime is a good service for the price. Plus later seasons surely cost more to license.

                          TV series via Amazon Prime can be dangerous. Stream first few seasons, get hooked, then discover the latest installment is a ~$40 purchase.

                              UPS emailed asking me to pick up my wife’s  Watch. (But I did a few days ago.) Hoped they sent two but it was just a software glitch. Drat!

                                I’m really digging the new @Flickr iOS app! I love the timeline strip in Camera Roll for rapidly scrubbing through my older photos.

                                  Last night I moved our ticket system from RT 3.8.8 to 4.2.10. What an improvement! Not only looks nicer, but significantly faster.
