      @duerig In my head I'd already spent money, so was a new shiny thing. Emily greatly relieved I didn't spend hours on restore, debug, setup, etc. Our kids have grown up with old MacBook and have sentimental attachment. Only I was sad :-).

        Sad news! Was excited about non-retina MacBook purchase, but 7yo MacBook lives! Replacement power adapter had died in peculiar manner. Great tip though.

          Internet of Things: been mostly ignoring IoT hype. Pretty sure it will go badly for a decade or so - esp in surveillance society. Anyone here optimistic?

            Overreacting to Risk: Portland reservoir insanity. [www.schneier.com] I had same reaction. What idiot made ghat decision?

                @gaelicwizard What would you recommend for sync within home LAN? I'd like to sync Emily documents from MacBook to iMac. Could use Dropbox but ... @dropbox

                  @wickedgood what setup do you use? I'm going to do at work I think.

                    @sirshannon So the U of MN's tech store has the non-retina MBP, they'll do the RAM upgrade in store (so warranty!). I'll do the 1TB SSD myself post-warranty. Thanks for great tips guys. //@gaelicwizard

                      BitTorrent Sync Support for Network Attached Storage. [blog.bittorrent.com] I am thinking about using this inside our home lan.

                        @gaelicwizard @sirshannon I'm on 500GB cheap pro. Can pickup at my u discount today. A year from now 1TB SSD and ram will see us through 2020.

                          @svenseebeck On Pinner add from clipboard moved to pop up at screen bottom. Might be flaky though. //@failgunner @wickedgood @jeffmueller

                            @sirshannon The 500GB MB Pro with upgrade path option hadn't occurred to me! Brilliant. Thanks!

                              @wickedgood Emily has been trying to get us to switch to brown rice because of, you know, those icky vitamins. So happy to go mushy. Next: white bread!

                                @wickedgood I'm in same place, though my primary Pinner problem is editing title of newly created bookmarks. I'm thinking Pinswift. Key variable - do I get multiline for title edit? Want at least 256 char equiv. //@jeffmueller

                                  Family 7yo MacBook died (sob). Std 13" Air is 4GB, custom order 8GB is additional $270 due to taxes, etc. (20% of Amazon's 4GB Air price!). Maybe SSD means can live with 4GB. Am I insane? @gaelicwizard
