dtm1: I haven't tried this in the beta of El Capitan, but my guess is that an app like that will simply fail and produce error messages.
jbruni: /usr/local is not protected.
Old UNIX Guy: Thank you so much. As you can see from the above and many of my other articles, I have the world's *best* readers.

Instead, many of the new features are under the hood, like Metal, and I referred to that in my article. I like these features precisely because they *are* small tweaks that improve the experience. I think I'll use them every day.
There was a Steve Jobs video highlighted on page 2 of last week's Particle Debris. It relates very well to what all of you have written here.
aardman: That's a fascinating question. I doubt your scenario could ever happen because of the number of atoms required to make a working Internet device, but one could do the math... Brutno. The level of control you mention is possible in the SonicWall routers (now owned by Dell). They have told me that their TZ series is now IPv6 functional, but their products do not appear on Comcast's recommended list. This is a subject of keen interest to me, and I'll have to make time to explore it and write further. Meanwhile, feel free to email me directly, and maybe…
