Tech / Re: migrating from old Mac mini to new

I “suggested” that you enabled Screen Sharing” on ALL your computers, not just one or two or three. You can only see the screen of one computer on another computer if the screen you want to see has screen sharing enabled.

Secondly, did you view the Apple Support links I gave earlier?

Lastly, many monitors will have a set of resolutions available. Those should show in the “Scaled” section of the Display pref. Please remember individual System Prefs will vary from one computer to the next, even if both are running the same OS version. I have only Catalina and Big Sur. I cannot see or speak to any OS older (or newer) than those.

I suggest you stop trying to use Screen Sharing for a while and concentrate on getting the monitor to work on the new mini.

Any idea how to get the monitor working properly with the new mini?
Yep! Screen Sharing, again. Use your iMac to look at the screen of the new mini, you did set Screen Sharing enabled on all your computers, right? On your iMac access the new mini's screen. Open System Prefs on the mini, try different scaling choices. Screen Sharing make go blank/black while the mini makes the changes. Be patient.  :toothgrin:

Not sure how to enable my MBP from the old mac mini?
You "enable" Screen Sharing in each computers System Prefs before you actually share anything. Go back to the Sharing section of your old mini (connected to a monitor and keyboard, of course) and put a check mark in the Screen Sharing. Also enable File Sharing while you have that mini accessible. Write down the vnc:// "url" (red text below) that shows in the text just below the green dot and the "Screen Sharing: On". Mine shows the following:
Other users can access your computer’s screen at vnc:// or by
looking for what-Ever-You-Named-Your-Old-Mini in the Finder sidebar.
Your actual IP number will likely be different, of course.

Now, swap the monitor and keyboard to the new mini and do the same steps as above.

Next, follow the above steps in the MBP and the iMac.

Now, any of your computers (when they have a keyboard and monitor attached) can share the screen of any other computer you have. Sorry if I have confused you. Try this Apple Screen Sharing Support page for their instructions.

Check the Display section of System Prefs for help in selecting the scale settings for your new mini. Apple Display Settings Support page (Be sure to select the correct OS on that computer).

You can Screen Share the new mini from your MBP or, better yet, your iMac; more screen is always better! Ran a mini like that for several years before finally buying a cheap monitor. No need to turn anything OFF. You will have to enable Screen Sharing on the old mini. :toothgrin:

Which machine is telling you the “update”?

Don't need a new car, I'll be ~83 by the time we normally buy them; every 10 years. Who knows if I can even get a license then?! I would like to live long enough to see a Starship launch and land! It appears his earlier exposure to programming created a false sense of expertise in that area. His "schooling" at Stanford reminds me of a young man in our family. He said he already knew everything they were 'teaching' him after only one semester at Berklee! :WOW: :whistling: (no pun intended!) :rofl: Fortunately, he found he had some skills of his own in programming. He now works at 1 Apple Park Way. :thumbup:

How monoclonal antibodies lost the fight with new COVID variants

[R]esearch on and rapid development of antibody treatments has opened up possibilities beyond COVID. "It has improved the production of monoclonals for cancer, for immunologic diseases," says Dieffenbach, "It's going to be easier to produce monoclonals in the future because of the lessons learned from SARS-CoV-2. Nothing was wasted here."

Like Facebook, Twitter doesn't believe you could ever want to delete your account. :wallbash: Somehow they both think you must have made some kind of mistake. :doh:

The following link explains what has to happen before your account is actually "deleted". It will take 30 days of complete inactivity before your account is "deleted". Be sure any other app that is using Twitter has completely eliminated its Twitter activity, especially any activity that would be using your username and/or password.
    How to deactivate your Twitter account

Twitter may retain some information on your deactivated account to ensure the safety and security of its platform and people using Twitter. More information can be found here.

BTW, if you simply can't stand not knowing the trivia in the life of your "friends", here are some links to Mastadon:

2FA is up to you. I'm only suggesting that a new (Gmail approved) password might help. :dntknw:

BTW, how many total emails do you have stored?

Have you ever done a Mailbox -> Rebuild? :Thinking:

I'm about to Shutdown my Mac as it can't get past "About 15 minutes remaining" in the Preparing function. I suspect the real problem is Spotlight; I deleted hundreds of files today. Quit/re-opened System Prefs, it now says 'only' 10 minutes remaining. :wallbash:
