Decide on an Installation Method

Slice ePub November 19, 2014
<p>The Yosemite installer doesn’t ask you to pick an installation method, as was the case for early versions of Mac OS X. However, you still have some choices. You can approach the process in any of three ways:</p><p>Most users should start with Plan A and then if (and only if) they encounter problems, move on to Plan B. A few people may want to skip Plan A and go directly to Plan B. In almost every case, the end result will be virtually identical, regardless of which path you take.</p><p>In the pages that follow, I describe the differences among these three plans and help you choose which way to go. Then, in later chapters, I give you step-by-step instructions for each plan.</p><p>If your “upgrade” involves not only upgrading a new Mac to Yosemite but also moving your files to the new Mac from an old computer, you should generally choose Plan B: Clean Install so you can get a fresh start on the new Mac. At the end of the Plan B installation, Setup Assistant will run, letting you transfer the files from your old Mac or PC to your new Mac.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/785504-take-control-of-upgrading-to-yosemite">See more</a>

18. Economics and the Cowboy

Slice PDF May 18, 2014
<p>Chapter Eighteen</p><p>Economics and the Cowboy</p><p>If the economics of cattle ranching are gloomy, it should come as no surprise that the economic picture of cowboying will wear the same hat. Indeed, the surprise might be that cowboying has survived into the twenty-first century and that any horseback jobs remain at all in an industry so beset with economic woes.</p><p>During the time span that has seen cowboying emerge as a profession, roughly from 1880 to the present, other industries have bloomed and faded, first creating jobs for skilled practitioners and then leaving them unemployed. One thinks of the textile industry in New</p><p>England and the coal mining industry in West Virginia and Kentucky, enterprises that once thrived and around which whole towns were built.</p><p>Today, very little remains of those once-vibrant industries except songs, folklore, memories, and sad little towns. The cattle business, for all its problems, has at least managed to cling to life and continues to provide jobs for a small pool of skilled laborers.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/615239-the-modern-cowboy">See more</a>

Ruskin and Read

Slice PDF February 24, 2015
<p>18</p><p>THE GOLDEN FLEECE</p><p>Ruskin and Read and my father was before me, a violent Tory of the old school,’</p><p>‘Iam,</p><p>Ruskin said of himself. In marked contrast with this nineteenth-</p><p>century arbiter of taste, Herbert Read is a pacifist and an anarchist, particularly sympathetic to new ideas.</p><p>Yet to take another statement of Ruskin’s: ‘If we were to be asked abruptly, and required to answer briefly, what qualities chiefly distinguish great artists from feeble artists, we should answer, I suppose, first, their sensibility and tenderness; secondly, their imagination; and thirdly, their industry’ – to take this statement and apply to Herbert</p><p>Read’s writings for a comment, we should find the two philosophers of art in substantial agreement, with the exception that Read would hardly be likely to use the word ‘tenderness’ in this context.</p><p>And there lies the difference between the two men and between two epochs. Ruskin was slightly soft in the middle; Read is a little too hard.</p><p>Ruskin’s influence spread out to inspire the whole literate community;</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/623630-the-golden-fleece">See more</a>

CHAPTER TEN: Bearing unbearable affect

Slice ePub May 23, 2014
<p>The sand was unbearably hot, yet Tony refused to get up. His mind said “get up” but his body could not do it. He figured it wouldn't be more than a first-degree sunburn and, in some ways, the relief he felt at having the heat of the sun infuse his exhausted body more than made up for the discomfort of the sand.</p><p>Nancy had not been wild about taking vacation in the Caribbean and lying on a beach, yet Tony knew that if he didn't take care of himself and replenish his internal stores, he wouldn't stand a chance upon his return to Boston. The work would eat him up. Was he depressed? No. Was he neurovegetative? Yes. The difference, he concluded was in the will. His will, at this time, was on the side of his psyche. An old saying played over again in his mind: “If you don't bend, you break.” As the developmental psychologists noted, one wanted to be stable and flexible rather than rigid and inflexible. Tony had learned that those clinicians who feel that psychotic patients are fragile should be ever aware of how psychosis can be incredibly inflexible. Then again, getting people to change is never an easy proposition. His thoughts were interrupted by a fly that insisted onbiting his nose. Now stirred up, Tony figured a walk along the beach was probably a good idea.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/220393-unbearable-affect-a-guide-to-the-psychotherapy-of-psychosis">See more</a>

Programmable Completion

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>Bash and the <em>readline</em> library provide <em>completion</em> facilities, whereby you can type part of a command name, hit the Tab key, and Bash will fill in part or all of the rest of the command or filename. <em>Programmable completion</em> lets you, as a shell programmer, write code to customize the list of possible completions that Bash will present for a particular partially entered word. This is accomplished through the combination of several facilities:</p><p>The <em>complete</em> command allows you to provide a completion specification, or <em>compspec</em>, for individual commands. You specify, via various options, how to tailor the list of possible completions for the particular command. This is simple, but adequate for many needs. (See the entry for complete.)</p><p>For more flexibility, you can use <code>complete -F</code> <em><code>funcname command</code></em>. This tells Bash to call <em>funcname</em> to provide the list of completions for <em>command</em>. You write the <em>funcname</em> function.</p><p>Within the code for a <code>-F</code> function, the COMP* shell variables provide information about the current command line. <code>COMPREPLY</code> is an array into which the function places the final list of completion results.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362952-bash-pocket-reference">See more</a>
