Quick VNC on Mac

A quick way to get a VNC connection from a Mac to another machine’s desktop:

  • Right-click on the Finder icon in the Dock, and choose Connect to server…
  • In the Server Address box, type vnc://machinename

That’s it!

Marketing speak

“Brevity”, said Polonius, “is the soul of wit”, and I fear this needs more emphasis in our schools, particularly amongst those destined, in later life, to compose marketing materials.

A screen in a hospital waiting room shows a succession of slides about the services on offer; one begins:

BreastHealth UK

The concept of BreastHealth UK is to help women organise and manage their breast health.

A certain superfluity, perchance?

Besides, it seems unlikely to me that any of the fairer sex start their Monday mornings thinking, “This week I intend to organise and manage my breast health”.
