AI and ChatGPT, specifically, is changing the face of technology. It’s just mind-boggling and intimidating at the same time. Here are resources I’ve come across that I find useful:

oh-my-zsh: Insecure completion-dependent directories detected
In case you encounter this error on installing oh-my-zsh, do the chmod commands below.
? ~ source ~/.zshrc [oh-my-zsh] Insecure completion-dependent directories detected: drwxrwxr-x 16 Anton.Perez admin 512 May 4 10:42 /usr/local/share [oh-my-zsh] For safety, we will not load completions from these directories until [oh-my-zsh] you fix their permissions and ownership and restart zsh. [oh-my-zsh] See the above list for directories with group or other writability. [oh-my-zsh] To fix your permissions you can do so by disabling [oh-my-zsh] the write permission of "group" and "others" and making sure that the [oh-my-zsh] owner of these directories is either root or your current user. [oh-my-zsh] The following command may help: [oh-my-zsh] compaudit | xargs chmod g-w,o-w [oh-my-zsh] If the above didn't help or you want to skip the verification of [oh-my-zsh] insecure directories you can set the variable ZSH_DISABLE_COMPFIX to [oh-my-zsh] "true" before oh-my-zsh is sourced in your zshrc file. zsh compinit: insecure directories, run compaudit for list. Ignore insecure directories and continue [y] or abort compinit [n]? ncompinit: initialization aborted

GitHub: The unauthenticated git protocol on port 9418 is no longer supported
GitHub recently improved security, so you may get the error below like I did when I tried to install oh-my-zsh on a new Mac.
Anton.Perez@amp ~ % sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/ohmyzsh/ohmyzsh/master/tools/install.sh)" Cloning Oh My Zsh... fatal: remote error: The unauthenticated git protocol on port 9418 is no longer supported. Please see https://github.blog/2021-09-01-improving-git-protocol-security-github/ for more information. /Users/Anton.Perez Error: git clone of oh-my-zsh repo failed
You can test if it’s because you need to add an SSH key by running:
ssh -vvv firstname.lastname@example.org
You’ll get an error like so if so:
... debug2: we did not send a packet, disable method debug1: No more authentication methods to try. email@example.com: Permission denied (publickey).
If so, just generate a new key and add it to your GitHub account (see this. That’s it!
Homebrew: “Permission denied @ rb_file_s_symlink…”
In case you encounter this error below when doing brew update:
==> Homebrew has enabled anonymous aggregate formula and cask analytics. Read the analytics documentation (and how to opt-out) here: https://docs.brew.sh/Analytics No analytics have been recorded yet (nor will be during this `brew` run). ==> Homebrew is run entirely by unpaid volunteers. Please consider donating: https://github.com/Homebrew/brew#donations Updated 1 tap (homebrew/core). No changes to formulae.
