The new behavior where you have to reinstall Developer Tools after every #macOS Big Sur point update is absolutely maddening!
The #sudo CVEs are pretty amazing. https://www.qualys.com/2021/01/26/cve-2021-3156/baron-samedit-heap-based-overflow-sudo.txt is great.
I gave in to consumerism and replaced my perfectly-good Intel MacBook Air with an ARM64 MacBook Pro.
Pros: battery doesn't seem to ever drain; can compile neovim and all dependencies from source in under 2 minutes; every closed-source tool I use except Dropbox is already arm64-native
Cons: very few OSS tools have pre-built universal binaries, so clang gets a lot of exercise
It appears that ocsp.apple.com is down, so a bunch of SSL infrastructure that relies on #Apple certificates is breaking. Argh!
Or maybe there's bad internet weather somewhere else? I can't access any Apple properties under 188.8.131.52/8 from any of my datacenter-hosted VMs, either, and a bunch of Google stuff is timing out from here and there...
