Apple plans to stop support for 32-bit apps

I only just found out / read that Apple are planning to stop all support for 32-bit apps after the next update. https://www.macobserver.com/tips/how-to/macos-find-32-bit-apps/ I almost panicked as i was not sure if Nimble was 64-bit or not. However after following the instructions in the link above ...

Re: Standard File Info

If the Finder info dialogue is enough for you, you can just use "Services -> Show Info in Finder". I have mapped it to Cmd+I in my NC settings. Hi there So i know where to find this, but how do you map it to a hot key in NC settings ? I cant see it in the hot keys list, and i cant add a new hot key...

Re: NC- APFS slow copy speed

A bit of follow-up here. After some further digging, it appears that the problem on APFS is not in F_PREALLOCATE itself, but in a consecutive ftruncate() syscall. This doesn't change the whole picture, just a detail. The Internet already has some WTF posts regarding this behavior. Ah! Thanks a mil ...

So here is a copy to an external SSD via USB formatted as 'Mac OS Extended (Journaled)' : Copy.gif It starts the copy immediately without an...

Re: Nimble SMB copy speed

Anyway, why is it so slow on APFS/SSD nowadays - might be a good question. Ah ok thanks Mike. So something worth investigating here ? So i understand, from what you have said above, are you saying SSD's are not affected by this issue ? If this is true, i know you cant simply remove a function as th...
