I moved all my data from one mac laptop to another. I’ve done this many times with Time Machine, and it always works. But I often forget a few steps. This is my attempt at jotting down the things I forget to do, so I don’t forget the next time.
I wanted to do something pretty straightforward, theoretically. I wanted to install VLC from source on MacOS X. I use the MacPorts system for this. It’s really similar to the FreeBSD ports system. What a nightmare.
