    Backup advice

    I would still pay extra for iCloud/Google storage to ensure that your photos are backed up. I think OneDrive app is better now but I had the experience of my wife losing a year's worth of photos because the OneDrive app wasn't backing them up in the background. The photos were unrecoverable...

    Backup advice

    I agree with this. Keep in mind that the family plan gives you 6 accounts, each with 1TB of storage. So if you need more than 1TB, you can create 2nd, 3rd accounts and have them all synced on the same machine as needed.

    The Athletic sells to the New York Times

    I just got an email from NYT to create my account on The Athletic because I'm an NYT "all access" subscriber. Looking forward to checking out the content.

    It’s easy to find a bunch of people selling their sub for $3 on slick deals. $5 is too rich for me.

    Getting a (preferably new) laptop that has windows 10

    I would stick with windows 11. Just create a VM with windows 10 to run those apps that don’t work on 11.

    iMac / Outlook / zsh - for macOS Big Sur v11.6

    The crash is a stack buffer overflow. I doubt that it has anything to do with the shell that is fork/exec'ing Outlook. You never answered the question about what email accounts did you add to Outlook. After you install outlook, it prompts you to add an email account. What did you add? You...

    iMac / Outlook / zsh - for macOS Big Sur v11.6

    Agreed. What is the error that you're seeing and how do you get to that error? I created a VM with Big Sur and had no trouble installing O365 (downloaded from office.com). I added my outlook & gmail accounts without an issue to Outlook.

    iMac / Outlook / zsh - for macOS Big Sur v11.6

    As far as I can tell, there's no 16.6 version. I think you're running 16.60 which is the latest. See this site for update history: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdates/update-history-office-for-mac#release-history-for-office-for-mac

    iMac / Outlook / zsh - for macOS Big Sur v11.6

    I just installed Office 365 on my Mac and the Outlook version is 16.6. Have you tried doing "check for updates" and then switching your channel to be the preview or beta? Maybe you'll get the newer version this way?

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    buying a fire stick or Roku is the way to go. I had an issue with my smart TV with some apps hanging and just gave up. They’re not as well tested as the mainstream devices.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    Pretty sad. Tivo use to be the in product at one time in the 2000s.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    Correct assuming that you know his account password. Have my suggestion of creating a separate account just for YTTV. I wouldn’t want to be giving someone my normal gmail account info

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I suggest creating an account just for YTTV so that both of you know the password. Then you login on the home network with your son's account every 2 months. I also recommend logging in using the phone to have the least issues. Sometimes logging in on the computer/fire stick is not sufficient.
