Hide High Sierra Update

Recently I selected update all from the Mac Store which downloaded the latest version of OS X High Sierra. This is not an update I want or need at this time, issues abound which is enough said.

I found it tricky to remove the update from the list on the Appstore. It turns out there is a slight bug on the App Store app whereby Right Clicking in the description doesn’t always register. To reveal the hide this update it is sometime necessary to click in-between the characters, you may need to right click about a little to bring up the button.

To remove this update if you chose it mistakenly you first need to remove the downloaded package from you Application folder then right click (control click) on the description in the App Store listing and when it appears chose hide this update.

Apple in their wisdom seem to delight in us having to jump through hoops at the simplest of tasks.

Waffen One: Schnuller

After years of avoiding weapons I have just completed my first one an Assault Rifle concept of my own design. I did all the work in Modo including the concepting while I modelled this meant it took a bit. I may do some more in the future as I learned a few tricks in doing the piece.

The name schnuller is a play on words from the US English translation.

Reverse a Curve in Modo

This one is too easy but I never got it so:

Select the Curve in Poly mode (3 key) then hit F to flip.

Boom the curve direction is reversed, F is used to Flip the polygon faces so I would never have guessed but when you know it makes sense.
