Can’t be opened because the identity of the developer cannot be confirmed Fix

Can't be opened because the identity of the developer cannot be confirmed

I have seen this Mac problem quite long time ago, and I keep forgetting how I fix it whenever I have it again and again.

At this time, with Yosemite OS X, I downloaded an update .dmg file from LibreOffice, and when I wanted to open the application, it did say, can’t be opened because the identity of the developer cannot be confirmed.

“A media driver your computer needs is missing” Win 10 with Parallel Desktop

A media driver your computer needs is missing

Windows 10 build 10049 technical preview was released some days ago and available to download.

I thought I would want to install it on my HP laptop, but I decided to install it on my iMac.

I don’t recommend you to install Windows Technical Preview version on your laptop or PC and if you do, please update media drivers of your computer first.

So I also downloaded it, and wanted to install with Virtual Machine, Parallel Desktop.

USB External Hard Drive Not Showing on Finder But on Disk Utility

Select the external drive, and click Repair Disk

Almost losing my files on my USB external HD last week, thankfully it worked after long time looking for a solution on Google.

Here is my situation. I had my external hard drive disconnected from my Mac many times (with Mavericks OS), and finally my external hard drive was not showing on finder, including the partitions (I have two of them). So I tried to disconnect the HDD and reconnected it again, also waited for a period of time, and still could not see them.

However, I could see it on Disk Utility. You can hit “CMD + Space” keys, and will display spotlight, type, “Disk Utility” to open it. In case you need a new external HDD check out Amazon for the affordable best seller.

Fixing Too Many Authentication Failures For Username Error with Octopress

Too many authentication failures for username error message

Since I have setup an Octopress in my local machine, you can see how I did it here with Mac, and here with Windows. I have deployed to my webhost (HostGator) via Rsync.

I actually just deployed to create a demo video, but because I moved from one host to another, it detects that my public key is used in too many connections, and I got this error message.

Too many authentication failures for username error message

So basically when I type:

ssh -p 2222 kimiweb6@wphowtosite.com

Received disconnect from IP Address: :2 Too many authentication failures for username

In this case, my username is kimiweb6 and my host is wphowtosite.com

Also typed, ssh -p 2222 -o PubkeyAuthentication=no kimiweb6@192.232.251.95 brought me to the Too many authentication failures for username result.
