risking-a-brick-with-macos

I’ve been getting notifications for something like four (or more) months now to do the latest OS (point) upgrade for macOS. I’ve avoided it, and dismissed the notifications, because whenever I do an update, it causes the screen to flicker on/off, the fan runs at full-tilt, I have to keep the MacBook plugged in and unfussed with for (usually) 2 hours – it’s a fxxxing mess. Now, I have been delinquent, and a new version of macOS is arriving soon (or may already be available?), so, I need to go ahead and install these updates, and sacrifice some time away from the laptop, and just use my phone for a hot minute, and then return when the updates are done.nnThe *real* reason I need to do this, though, is because I cannot get Docker to install or do the initial setup, because of…issues. I am pretty sure they are all OS-related, though. Once I have Docker up and going, I will do my song and dance and start to self-host Standard Notes. Perhaps by the end of the night? I do not know. Then, I will likely take **tmo.name** offline, but I am not even 100% sure about that, yet (because there’s a *lot* of stuff I put there!).nnOk, see you on the dark side of the moon ;)nn
