    So, you are happy enough with it that you plan to update once the 32 bit app situation is resolved?

    (I don't have any 32 bit apps, so that's not a concern to me. I've delayed mainly because I've...

    Catalina? Or Not?

    I have yet to update my 2017 iMac to Catalina. Mojave seems to work fine for me with the exception that Reminders now only show up on my iOS devices. I was planning to do the update this week, but...

    I see that as part of the problem. Why should you have to do research to understand what's going on?

    I just worked this one up myself. I have an alias to it in my .bashrc file:
