When life gives you discoveryd crashes...

31 Mar 2016

Today (yesterday as I write this) was a day of setbacks.

In planning for today, I knew I wasn’t going to be able to make progress on my primary project, because I needed to travel and pickup some stuff I bought online. I like what I bought, but I need to do a better job of determining the implicit opportunity cost of spending personal time to “save money” when I could be creating value through pushing work products forward (my time isn’t “free”).

That opportunity cost was further compounded as the Mac mini I have hosted with Macminicolo crashed three times over the past two days and I wasn’t able to spend the day investigating the crash. In working tonight I seem to be have tracked it down to an issue with discoveryd_helper but as of yet, I haven’t found the fix.

Que Sera, Sera

On the bright side, driving gives me an opportunity to think through possibilities and work through some other programming problems, but the “work work” is left for tomorrow.

Now, it is time for 😴.

I upgraded the machine from 10.10.1 to 10.10.5 using softwareupdate and it made it through a week without crashing.
