Self-Taught IT?

I love the premise of this article: Just because you are a Self-Taught Developer/IT Guy doesn’t make you any less authentic in your field than someone with a BS or an MS.

Planning vs. Acting is procrastination.  Just go after it.

With the high cost and low quality of College courses these days, it has surpassed the threshold of not being with the value it once offered.

homebrew update on Mac: /usr/local not writable

Sometimes the most obvious solution isn’t so obvious

On my work MacBookPro laptop I issued the following Terminal Command:

brew update

it promptly came back:

 Error: /usr/local must be writable!

 

Doing a little web Googling and Face-2-Face conversing here in shop I learned the solution:

  • change ownership the to your current user :> whoami
sudo chown -R $(whoami) /usr/local
  • When this is successful re-execute brew update
brew update
  • When complete revert ownership of /usr/local back to root
sudo chown -R root /user/local

 

BAM – Homebrew update is happy, obviously 🙂
