Brother HL-L2350DW

In the early afternoon the Brother HL-2350DW I ordered yesterday arrived. I placed my order with and everything went OK. Unpacking the printer and setting it up was very easy. Especially since I had already read the User's Guide.

For now I connect the printer via USB. OS X "El Capitan" running on my Mac Mini recognised the printer immediately.

PostgreSQL don't do this list

While I haven't used PostgreSQL yet, I have plans to look into this database in the near future. Today I came upon this great Don't Do This list. I added a link to this list to my local wiki for future reference.

How to show a Wi-Fi password on macOS or OS X

To set up WiFi with the Brother laser printer I needed the password. In order to get a Wi-Fi password on OS X or macOS do the following:

  1. Press ⌘ space to open Spotlight Search or click on the magnifying glass on the left side of the menu bar.
  2. Enter "Keychain access" and press return.
  3. In the search input field at the right top of the Keychain Access window enter your Wi-Fi network name.
  4. Double click the row with "AirPort network password".
  5. Tick "Show password" to get the password.
