When you use homebrew to install php 7.1 it will cleverly install php-fpm which listens on port 9000.  This is the default port for xdebug, so if you want to debug php scripts in a lando container, you will have some challenges.

TL;DR

If you've installed php 7.1 with homebrew, it listens on port 9000 so you will need to change the containers php.ini port specification to another port.  e.g.

xdebug.remote_port=9001

Then tell phpstorm to listen on port 9001

This allows me to setup a fresh Drupal 8 site with DrupalVM ver 4.7

Note. I was able to make DrupalVM version 4.8 work but I had a few minor issues such as permissions in the sites/default/files directory and the fact that it uses drush 9

See Jeff Geerlings blog post for more info

Download drupalvm version 4.7.2

I have to often issue commands like: vagrant up, or vagrant reload and OSX wants to be sure that I know what I am doing so it cleverly asks for my password.  Thanks to the efforts of a very smart coworker, there is a workaround to this problem.

 

First do:
which sed


and replace the /usr/bin/sed below with your path to sed)

These go under cmd alias specification section

Use this command to edit /etc/sudoers (don't do it directly):
sudo visudo

I'm struggling with a peculiar little problem.  My old faithful windows 10 computer will never eject the USB thumb drive.  It doesn't ever show any errors.  Its quite puzzling.  I have several usb devices currently working including a 4TB usb hard drive, usb keyboard and mouse and a Fujitsu USB scanner.  When I plug in the usb thumb drive, Windows makes the familiar boing noise and I can view the contents of the drive, but when I click the bottom right icon to eject, all goes well but explorer still sees the drive.  I can manually remove the thumb drive from the usb port and Windows remains

I recently purchased a cool new 4 TB external WD hard drive for backups.  When I plugged it in and rebooted my computer, I got a black screen and never saw windows boot up. I spent some time looking at various posts but never found anything useful so I thought I'd post my solution here.

Note.  the drive worked fine when I plugged it in.  I only found a problem when I rebooted the computer.  This is a problem as I plan to leave the drive plugged in so my system can make a daily backup each evening to the external drive.

I use a device called an OBI100 with google voice to make and receive phone calls when at home.  This allows me to use the same phone number for voice/cell/texts etc. It only cost me about $30 btw. Recently, I hit a snag. 

When I tried to make a phone call, after I dialed the number, a voice reported: "no service error please login to obitalk and configure your device"
