Mac OS X Yosemite
Ars Technica has a fantastically detailed review (25 pages) of the latest OS X release, Yosemite. I’m browsing though the article as my 5.1GB download is slowly coming across the tubes. Maybe sometime tonight it will have completed and I’ll be ready to install 🙂

More TNC Commands
MCON ON : monitor all packets to/from other stations, not just your station
