macOS (previously Mac OS X, then OS X) is the current series of Unix-based graphical operating systems developed and marketed by Apple Inc. designed to run on Apple’s Macintosh computers (“Macs"). It has been preinstalled on all Macs since 2002. Within the market of desktop, laptop and home computers, and by web usage, it is the second most widely used desktop OS, after Microsoft Windows.
Over the last few weeks I've tried to figure out why Synergy (which had been installed by one user into the Applications directory) was unable to be opened by other users on the same machine. Initially I thought that there were file permission issue, but after changing them a few I was still unable to open the application. The solution to this problem also lead to more flexibility than before.
Saturday morning saw an futile attempt to lay the groundwork for my Live Coding Project. I created the project on Github and attempted to clone it via the App only to have it crash, a restart didn't help so I opened iTerm to clone manually. I didn't think much of it at the time until I opened my IDE (because some formatting rules had been bugging me) upon importing the new folder as a project the IDE crashed just like the Github App earlier. Curious about the cause I followed the prompts to report the error to see what would be sent. The following may not be the exact error as I forgot to save it before I fixed the problem.
