About

 

For 20 years, Macanix was a one-man guru for getting results for designers, artists, home-users and small businesses.

From his first Apple ][+ to his current modified 2012 MacMini, its been an interesting time. SCSI terminations, Bernoulli, SyQuest, Iomega Zip and Jaz, Fast and Wide SCSI, Firewire, USB, DVD-rom/ram, Bluray, Firewire400/800, eSata, PCIe, USB3.0, SSD, M.2 USB-C.. all have come and gone (or going). Connections such as HDMI, Displayport, MiniDisplay port can carry audio and video at 4K resolutions or higher. There is even wireless video support (Airplay on the Mac).

Today, in these uncertain times, its not just computing. From estimating home office setup for “working from home” to remote support, technology, security, reliability and working with users has become far more intricate and complicated than a decade ago. Wireless is more prevalent with newer technology releasing every year (Wifi 6, 802.11ax.. B/G are too insecure and slow, and soon N will follow suit, along with 4G and 5G cellular data). Home wireless is getting advanced with better routers, and mesh/directional access points to deal with non-standard floorplans.
