Der Flounder is my personal blog. I pretty much write whatever I want here, so I’m not going to limit myself by giving this blog a specific category. Some weeks, it’s all about OS X and other Apple-related items. Some weeks, I’m bored of computers, or just don’t want to talk about them, and will just post on whatever strikes my fancy. Feel free to leave a comment if something tickles you the right or wrong way. Go check out the rules if you are unsure as to how to behave when leaving comments.
Please respect my rules while visiting my site.
- Only post comments under the entry to which they correspond.
- If comments for an entry have been closed, you may contact me via e-mail, but do not attempt to post a comment under another entry.
- Please do not send me Trackbacks without providing a link to the entry you are referencing. Any Trackback sent that do not have a valid link will be automatically deleted, and you’ll probably be auto-blacklisted too. So don’t do it.
- Watch your language. Instead of listing what words you can’t use, I’ll just list what you can use, and just assume anything worse is off-limits: damn, crap, hell. If you feel that your point cannot be made without the use of strong language (certainly a legitimate view), you may use asterisks to mask your f***ing language.
- No flaming. Lively discussion is encouraged, but personal attacks against me, my family, my friends, or other commenters are forbidden.
Depending on the severity of your offense, I may edit your comment, delete your comment, ban you from commenting, ban your town from commenting, ban your country from commenting, or report you to your ISP.
I reserve the right to change or add to these rules at any time. This is my site, so my freedom of speech trumps yours. That being said, if you are well-behaved and follow these rules, your free speech will not be silenced or altered.
My name is Rich Trouton. I’m a Macintosh systems administrator, who lives in the DC suburbs of Maryland and has been happily married since May 27th, 2006. If you have an OS X or macOS problem, I may be able to help.
