G Suite Legacy Free EditionMay 17, 2022
Link Google has added information on retaining the free edition, limits it to personal use.
Sounds good. I’ve enabled it for now, but I think I’ll eventually migrate to AWS’ WorkMail or Fastmail.
What if I use G Suite legacy free edition for personal use?
If you’re using the G Suite legacy free edition for non-commercial purposes, you can opt out of the transition to Google Workspace by clicking here (requires a super administrator account) or going to the Google Admin console. You can continue using your custom domain with Gmail, retain access to no-cost Google services such as Google Drive and Google Meet, and keep your purchases and data.

A Fun ExerciseMay 16, 2022
A fun exercise during this migration was to create a async delegate for
UIDocumentPickerControllerto return the selected URLs or throw an error based on the delegate methods invoked.

Been Slowly WorkingMay 16, 2022
Been slowly working at migrating various internal functions in Elytra to be async so I can compose them in View Controllers and Coordinators in a visually linear way.
Some Additional NotesApr 18, 2022
Some additional notes on my Studio Display post I posted earlier today:
I baffles me as to why Apple chose to use two DisplayPort 1.2 streams instead of a single DisplayPort 1.4 stream on supported Thunderbolt 3 controllers.
My MacBook Pro 14” will use a single DP 1.4 stream, but my Hackintosh will use two DP 1.2 streams. The Intel JHL7540 does support DP1.4 streams but the Studio Display will instead choose to complete the handshake using two DP1.2 steams.
Apple Studio DisplayApr 18, 2022
I received my Studio Display (Standard stand, standard glass) late Friday evening. Spent a good part of the weekend setting it all up, configuring all the required reference modes I would need.
The best part: It worked with my Hackintosh with a litte bit of tinkering. And everything works.
The A13 makes absolutely no sense. It handles the camera (which, as you may have already read, is terrible at the moment), handles the spatial audio bit (which is a hit-or-miss especially playing audio through Apple Music) and not much else. Its mere pressence complicates internal wiring so the extent of the display being a Smart Display. It cannot take AirPlay input on its own, or process HDMI signals (it doesn’t even any other input sources), or have anything to do with managing the USB ports on the back panel (that I know of).
Yup, those 3 emojis pretty much sum up my feelings. Combined with the capability to configure various reference modes, it’s the display you should get if you need 5K and everything else this display comes with.
Did I mention it also works with Windows? And games look incredible on it. I’m most probably spending the upcoming weekend playing Forza.
The default stand configuration actually is perfect for my personal setup. It’s at the same height (or probably 2cm taller) compared to my previous setup.
Why are they so big? Why, Apple! Why!?
The Studio Display is built to last! Or atleast it feels like that. But I’m still going to get AppleCare for it given Apple’s recent track record with hardware and random stuff breaking with OS updates. Considering this monitor ships with an A13 chip, and there has already been an incident (now resolved) of people unable to update the firmware on it, I’m skeptical.
