Though I knew most of this, nice vid, as usual.

Would love a refresher on running ones machine under two separate partitions (boot/apps vs. data), on Sierra/High Sierra/Mojave. With some reminders on why this can be useful to do, info on how things like databases (email, iTunes/Photos, et al.) can best be handled, and how backups (Time Machine, CCC/SD) are ideally done.

I understand it might not be on your immediate schedule, so maybe a 'future show idea' list item, or something. ;-)

Hi James,

Thanks! Will definitely consider another vid along the lines of what you suggest, especially in light of the upcoming Mojave release. No promises mind!

One thing not mentioned here that I find extremely useful is that it's possible to place application links in the toolbar, which then become drag targets for opening files in those applications. My toolbar has a couple of different apps that can do different things with text or image files, Mail to quickly create an e-mail with any file I drag onto it as an attachment, Evernote for creating new notes with files, etc.

Hi Michael, That's a great suggestion!
