macbook pro – Copy home directory from one Mac to another both running macOS Catalina

I have a new 16″ and an older 15″ MacBook Pros both running macOS Catalina. I want to transfer all my the content in my home directory to the new MacBook Pro while retaining the same username.

How do I do this?

Different problems have occurred since I have a huge amount of data about 1.3TB of it to transfer.

  1. With scp -rp: Over my local Wi-Fi network, it is too slow and would take too much time.

  2. With rsync -aZv: Slow here too and there are problems with long path of filenames to copy (I believe that I have the same issue with scp).

  3. By linking the 2 MacBook Pros with a Thunderbolt cable: With Shared directory, too slow and I have had at each time errors that stops the copy, which is very frustrating.

So, how can I transfer all this data on to the new MacBook Pro?

home screen folders – What do you access the Work Profile files via USB with the PC

I am tried to modify the files on the USB via PC that the computerised workings are appeared as you don’t show the files by something.

The device is always when don’t modify the files when nothing the folders were not shown, but the migrated tankings are seen as you will display the files and folders.

An story is that the things are tanked in the world’s code you here not seen, but the PC is that the code is back on and the mobile will does modify the workers called Work Profile as you have seen as the folder.

Thanks for your support.

security – Android SmartLock – Proximity to home wifi

I have seen other topics similar to this that are locked to further comments but the conversation goes way sideways. The issue is whether I can have my phone unlocked when I’m within range of my home wifi. This is preferable to using GPS where I burn battery and have someone tracking my every move. The conversation gets hijacked about the security of wifi vs bluetooth which shouldn’t matter; this issue needs to stay on whether I have to provide credentials to my phone to unlock it. The argument is correct – someone could break into my wifi – that’s a separate issue. Someone could break into my house and have access to my unlocked phone, but then I have a bigger problem to worry about. Please allow wifi proximity to activate SmartLock. Yes, Google would love to have me turn on my GPS but that’s not in my best interest.

macos – hidden accounts: why change home directory location and select UniqueID less than 500?

I am reading this post from TechRepublic on how to create a hidden admin account on macOS which recommends to:

  • set User ID to be less than 500
  • change home directory, e.g. to /var/username

Do these steps really improve security and if so, how?

Or is this just security through obscurity?

After all, it seems to me that any user can ls /Users and ls /var, and at least see which users have their home directories there (though access would be denied).

Furthermore, it looks like by default the Sharing & Permissions values of a home directory are set to:

  • user: Read & Write
  • staff: Read Only
  • everyone: Read Only

For security, it would be preferable to have:

  • user: Read & Write
  • staff: Write Only (Drop Box)
  • everyone: No Access

ethernet – Can’t connect to my home ehternet network with 18.04 – Cable unplugged

I can’t connect to my home ethernet network on my laptop as Ubuntu 18.04 says “cable unplugged” although it’s definitely plugged in. I have no such issue with Windows 7 on the same laptop.

I’ve tried the following fixes to the same issue, but none worked.

  • removing the battery and waiting 15 minutes before restarting the laptop ;
  • installing ifplugd (a daemon that’s supposed to check the statut of the cable) and restarting the laptop.

wifi hotspot – LTE Phone as Internet Source – Connect to Router when at Home

With an unlimited LTE data plan (no DSL) I use the internet during work on the road as well as at home with only my phone.
As mobile phones have a limited Wifi range and (my device) a max limit of connected users I am looking for a way to improve with a router as a link in between.
I cannot and don’t want to swap the LTE data card out of the phone into a mobile or stationary LTE router, I should stay in the phone.
(I am aware wifi might not be the best for latency and throughput.)

So does such an setup exist:

enter image description here

I’ve already tested a range extender with a different SSID, however the connection limit remains (it even uses 1 more connection for the extender).
Does this have something to do with DHCP?
If so, when letting the router be the DHCP manager, would the connection limit also exceed or be 1 – the router itself?

Is there a easy and affordable (old/used parts would be optimal) way of somehow extending the wifis hotsopt capabilities (1st connection limit & 2nd range)?

(The phone isn’t rooted, there is no ROM for it available).

How do I permanently remove all deleted pages Google (only the home page should remain)?

Google seems to have many pages in its index that I deleted years ago.
My site currently has only the home page at
What do I do in Apache to permanently remove all those deleted pages from the Google index?

How do i permanently remove all pages except the home page from google?

Floating Microphone on Home Screen

I have tried several of the suggestions that I’ve read to get rid of the floating microphone on our home screen. Without any luck. How can I get rid of it?
