Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2018-05-04

The conference registration season has begun! Three conferences started their registrations this week. There should be one for you. (The one for me is MacSysAdmin, where I will be presenting among many other great speakers this year.)

We got quite a few security related posts this week. Most important is a note from Twitter that they may have left your password unencrypted on their servers. So go change that right now, if you have not already.

In happier news, the iMac turns 20 this week!

Also in last week’s email I forgot set the subject and the email was sent out with tinyletter’s default subject line. My apologies for the confusion both for you, the readers and any email rules/filters you may have set up.

If you would rather get the weekly newsletter by email, you can subscribe to the Scripting OS X Weekly Newsletter here!! (Same content, delivered to your Inbox once a week.)

I do not have any ads on my webpage or this newsletter. However, if you want to support me and this website, then please consider buying one (or both) of my books. (Imagine it’s like a subscription fee, but you also get one or two useful books on top!)

If you have already bought and read the books, please leave a review on the iBooks Store. Reviews are important to help new potential readers make the purchase decision. Thank you (again)!
