In the first episode of Terminal Tinkering, Jeff Butts dives right into technology new, old, and different.
Show NotesWelcome to the first episode of Terminal Tinkering, the podcast where Jeff Butts tinkers with older and newer Macs, plays around with electronics, and tries not to break things so badly he can't fix them again. In this episode, Jeff will help you decide on a flavor of UNIX for your older, PowerPC-based Mac and then he'll tell you about the TMO Hackintosh, Valtur. To finish things off, Jeff shows you two ways you can record the screen from your iOS device using your Mac (or Windows PC, with one way). https://youtu.be/BFRutIW4EhU
