Releasing mouse pointer in virt-manager on macOs
If you are using virt-manager on macOs with XQuartz you might know the problem to release the mouse once you have entered a virtual machine. You can solve this issue by creating an additional file in your profile directory ~/.Xmodmap. This file must contain the necessary keyboard mappings to be able to release the mouse pointer.
keycode 66 = Alt_L
keycode 69 = Alt_R
add Mod1 = Alt_L
add Mod1 = Alt_R
Save the file and execute chmod 700 .Xmodmap . Than restart XQuartz and open virt-manager again. Using your left Control and left Option key will now release the mousepointer.

Websphere Installation Manager
From time to time we recognize that it would be nice to switch an Installation Manager installation from admin access to runtime user access. This could be done without a problem. The only things that need to be done is copying some filestructures, adjust file-permissions and change some xml-files.
We pretend to use a Linux machine and the InstallationManager is located in
macOS and Time Machine backup
After weeks of problems with Time Machine - eg the calculation of the duration of a backup of just 1 Gb must be interrupted after three days - including an incident ticket at Apple which was not able to solve the issue (btw: Thank you for your help, time and assistance, even when you not found the root cause).
Each time when we attached a disk device to initiate a backup it starts to calculate the time and never came to an end. Today we found the root cause for this behavior:
An application (Disk Drill) created a subdirectory on the harddrive and created a very huge number of small files in that directory. We analyzed this using
sudo fs_usage -w |grep -i backupd |grep -i fsctl
and recognized that a lot of files located in
where responsible for this misbehaviour. Excluding this directory from Time Machine solves the issue. Thanks to Mac O' Clock for the hints to solve this issue.
