Lifelong nerd. Now an official Head Nerd at @Nable, helping MSPs grow their Mac capabilities. Every question has an answer. It’s okay if that's "I don't know."

Did you know that many of the scripts and policies you can find in the Automation Cookbook are submitted by our partners? If you've built or customized something that makes your life easier, share it with the community: success.n-able.com/cookbooks…

I paused my music to do this and it was well worth it. 😂

The Mac command line is a powerful tool. Did you know that you can: 1. download the contents of a web page 2. strip the relevant content out of the HTML 3. have your Mac speak the results out loud? (1/2)

With that, you can automate things like speaking the weather or breaking news headlines. But why, when you can do this? say $(curl -Ss "lyricsondemand.com/onehitwon…" -o - | grep -A 10 'lcontent' | sed -e 's/<[^>]*>/\n/g')

Having worked in internal IT myself, I heartily endorse @nable IT for IT Dept of the Year - the best I’ve worked with.
What an honor to attend the 20th Annual American Business Awards to celebrate 4 #StevieAward wins for N-able: IT Department of the Year, HR Executive of the Year, Customer Service Team of the Year for Partner Success, and Achievement in Product Innovation! #njoythejourney
I’ll need to add Clarus into my Managing Macs bootcamp reference materials. These are the important updates.
Absent these many years, the return of Apple's print mascot Clarus the Dogcow to macOS Ventura will teach a whole new generation to say "Moof!" appleinsider.com/articles/22…

You've got all these shiny new apps and security updates. It'd be a shame if something were to happen to them. Yep, a real shame. Learn how to keep on top of patches and stay up to date with @Nable RMM. Two sessions tomorrow, June 16: pages.n-able.com/boot-camp-r…

I'm presenting a new webinar for the first time on Thursday: Managing Macs for the Windows Admin pages.n-able.com/boot-camp-m… Attending won't turn you into an Apple fan overnight. Probably.
