I guess we’re at the stage where we are ready to have more than a single prototype of the FOMOclients.
Not sure whether you know this, but I’ve only just joined the Cult of Mac. The last time I used one was back in 1983 when someone asked me to program their Apple Lisa. Much has changed. Everything pretty much just works exactly like you want it to. And when you find something that irritates you and you try fruitlessly to fix it through the ridiculously scant Mac menus and you are sure it can’t be changed, 5 minutes of google proves you wrong and you let out a relieved sigh, whew, that your Faith has not been shaken.
Yes, I am now a totally devoted culty. By far the best thing Apple has done in its many years is to build OSX on Linux. I’m not sure really how they did it so elegantly. It is like a marriage between the famously-easily-maintainable volkswagen and a BMW M5.
So in order to copy my little SD card from my Raspberry Pi, I use the familiar and ancient dd:
$ sudo dd if=/dev/disk1 of=~/Desktop/pi.img bs=1m
And writing the imagefile back to another SD card was no harder than:
$ sudo dd if=~/Desktop/pi.img of=/dev/disk1 bs=1m
And of course, since this, is uh, not a movie, I have to do this simple but time-consuming task several times from scratch as I discover problems that need fixing in the original RPi image.
