One of the tools I use in my studies, is OneNote. I find it does a good job of being a place to sort my study notes, and offers the benefit of search, which lets me easily find what I’m looking for.

After upgrading to OS X El Capitan, I was troubled by Spotlight crashing after I’d entered the letters st. I could reproduce the issue at will, and found the following entries in the Console logs:
In January, I showed you how to resolve SSL error 61. As it turns out, the error also affected Macs. Here’s the error you get on a Mac:
I like having my Mac start a set of programs each time I boot it, yet there are others which, under normal circumstances, would be set to load on boot that I only want to be running when I want them to be. Luckily, deciding what programs to start on boot – or not – is a simple enough proposition. Here’s how:
