Summer here in Finland is over. It's windy and raining cats&dogs. Definitely beginning of autumn.
For me, summer is typically time to do lots of other things than write blog posts. No exceptions this time. I did tinker around with computers some: new rack server to replace the old Intel Atom, some USB-probing via DLMS, some Python code, etc. etc. I may post someething on those projects later.
And: I got a new iMac. Here are some pics:
Back-in-the-days, there used to be 21.5" and 27" iMac. Actually, my old one is the small one. Since Apple abandoned Intel CPUs, one-size-fits-all, only 24" option available. Also, the iMacs I have are VESA-mounted ones. There is no room on my desk.
Apple's magic mouse is for somebody else. I hate the thing! Good thing I still have a perfectly working MX Anywhere 2. On my other computer I (obviously) use a MX Anywhere 3 and have plans to upgrade it into a 3S.
Cabling in an iMac is not-so-standard:
Ethernet RJ-45 -socket is in the PSU, which has your standard IEC C5 "Mickey Mouse" connector. On the other end, there is a Magsafe. With Ethernet in it! It has to be some sort of USB-C / Thunderbolt 4 -thingie with really weird magnetic connector.
Transferring setteings and data from a OS X to modern macOS works like a charm. Nothing in Windows can touch that level of easiness. Also, now I have an OS that can do Time Machine backups to a Linux/Samba. Nice! Maybe I should post something about that setup also.
Next: Run the thing for 10+ years. Btw. the old one is for sale, it really has no monetary value, but it works and I don't need it anymore.
