High Sierra 10.13.2 move/copy files finder freeze issue

There appears to be a compatibility issue between the High Sierra 10.13.2 security update and Samba (SMB), the networking protocol. I believe this is an issue to do with Intel processors, but that is as far as my understanding goes.

As a result, moving files on an externally mounted drive on an internal network causes the finder to freeze, (with the message “preparing to copy…”) requiring a manual shutdown to get the computer going again.

We have found a work around as follows:

  1. Eject the drive/computer from the machine where the freeze is happening, using the eject icon in the finder window.
  2. Go to Finder > Go > Connect to server…
  3. Into the server address type afp://xxxx, where xxx is the internal ip address of the server where the drives are located.
  4. Follow your normal connection procedure from here.

This reconnects the drive using the AFP protocol. So far we have been able to have full control over our folders on the externally mounted drive on the internal network. At this point we’re not sure if this requires reconnecting each time you start up, but it would be advisable to turn of any auto load of the drives in the “login items” in your User Preferences.

 

“I’ve come to regard comics as something like a song.”

Notebook: Ethel
Spread 2.
First drafts, mug drawing, rough mind map, comics and a quote from Lynda Barry.
It’s along the lines of:

“I’ve come to regard comics as something like a song. It can be about anything. We can address all sorts of things in a song, love gone wrong, truck driving, Daddies, smoking, boots, birthdays, cheating, space travel, big butts, revenge, war, a turkey in the straw, regret, genders, hands, purple haze . We can this way we can make comics about anything.”

– Although I did write it down in a hurry!

Christmas came early for me as I managed to bag this set of 4 Gullor fountain pens for a low price with some vouchers I got off my Dad for my birthday. They’re nice and weighty and drawing and writing with them is a dream.

“Style is the difference between a circle and how to draw it”

Opening page of Notebook: Ethel

I’m going to be uploading notebooks in a more systematic fashion (with sensitive info deleted obvs). Notebook Ethel is a few years old.

This is before I started using the first page spread as an index for the rest of the book. So the lists here are largely inspirational items and ideas of content capture. There’s not much order and I tend to fill empty spaces with bits of ephemera stuck in and doodles.

Salvador

Testing of my beautiful new Gullor fountain pens and Waterman inks on a portrait of a young Salvador Dali.

Apparently the photograph was taken of Dali by Luis Buñuel around the time of the making of Un Chien Andalou.

One suggestion is that Dali’s father strongly opposed his relationship with his future wife, Gala, he banished him from the family home. Before leaving for Paris to join her, Dali shaved his head and buried the hair at Cadaqués beach.

Four views of Bristol, two oldies, one tree, some Berlin shoppers and a young Salvador Dali.

Most of these had a process video on the second page so that’s obviously a thing that goes down well. Also that picture of the boat scrolls, I didn’t just draw the front.

Thank you to everyone for all the likes and comments, I enjoy the few moments a day I get to draw so much and getting support like that is wonderful. 🙏

Let’s do another year. 💥💥💥
