Google Cloud Platform vs. recent stuff vs. refurbished machine

Recently, I have received “the very first time GCP client” offer from Google. I assume that all the people get this initial credit so they can test GCP based services.

macOS – remember to check hard drives for errors

It looks like my macOS got little bit too optimistic when it comes to size of my 500GB hard drive :) It started to complain that Time Machine couldn’t complete the backup. If you have similar issue, make sure to run diagnostic of your hard drive
