I had issues with Zoom not "remembering" instead of not recognizing. So it would find the camera once, but the next time you'd have to manually go in and select that camera by choosing the arrow next to the camera icon. I think it kind of fixed itself after an update, but not positive. Had same thing happen when I was testing microphones.
The wife just accidentally called you. “Accidentally”. Sorry

Does anyone know why SharePoint and OneDrive suck so bad? I'll hang up and listen.

Related question. Been trying to set up a shared OneDrive at the office so I can save shit, then have my staff upload docs to our file management system. I can't for the life of me figure out how to get them access to the shared drive.
I took a two hour nap and cried during parks and Rec. it was awesome and terrifying.

I don't know if you can share the entire OneDrive instance to others, but you should be able to share individual files and folders inside it.

Yeah, that's what I'm trying to do. To be fair to OneDrive, I haven't done a ton of digging on how to set this up (i.e. checked YouTube).

Hey...does anyone have access to an Adobe Flash installer .msi file? I need to pull one apart using ORCA to get the product and upgrade codes, and you only get the .exe installer from the Adobe website.

I’m updating my 2017 iMac and my 2019 16” MBP to MacOS Big Sur.

Currently the iMac sits at 786.5 MB of 12.18 GB — About 3 days remaining.

Unless this picks up the pace later this afternoon (where Apple distributes more servers to handle the load), I might have to wait on this for a few days.

ETA — About 5 days remaining.

If I were you, I wouldn't upgrade right away. The Mac Admins Slack channel has been rife with reports of how unstable Big Sur has been, even with the gold master release. General rule of thumb I follow for macOS upgrades is to wait until the .0.2 patch is released.

That’s always good advice, and I think I’ll pull my MBP back for now. May as well use one of them as a test box. I’m curious if they already have patches slated for deployment.

Hey Dorks,

Anyone know anything about SiriKit for app developers? I'm working on an MBA project and I'm trying to see if or how much Apple basically subsidizes app developers to create content that works with Siri. I can't find any pricing info, but I am also seeing that maybe it's just a functionality that you can add into your coding software for free with approval? Not a big deal, just trying to add some meat to a powerpoint.

ETA: I'll source you in the documentation, of course, so don't let that stop you from answering.

EATA: Now that means rass will post the answer in the DIck and Balls thread or something similar.

What other thread would I use to fluff up your meaty deck?
