WOW Weekly – Are LogMeIn at it Again, Surely Not?

Welcome to this week’s edition of WOW weekly, featuring LogMeIn, Apple, the number 7 and a Microsoft trade-in! This particular edition should be renamed to fortnightly as last week I devoted time to having a good clear out (home wise) and spending time with my children during the first week of their school holidays. I also managed to upgrade to El Capitan which was well worth the upgrade! Sadly I’ve given up trying to install Windows 10 on my aging 5-year-old laptop.

Like many people who are flocking to alternatives I thought I would jump on the bandwagon.

Ampps For Mac – Update to 3.3 Manually Without Re-installing

Ampps is a fantastic piece of software if you want to run a testing server but upgrading on the mac has always been pretty awkward. The first time I upgraded, back when I was a Mac newbie, I deleted all of my files by accident! Luckily I had created a backup first. The good news is Mac users can download and install the update from a compressed file so there is no need to install from the disk image again.
