I’ve had a number of coworkers report that their Finder has been behaving poorly since the upgrade to Mavericks. They have noticed that when opening a new Finder window, the window will remain blank and beach-ball for 20-30 seconds before filling in as expected, then seeming to work fine. I was able to resolve this issue by removing the Finder plist and restarting Finder.
I noticed the other day that my XProtect file had been updated for the first time in quite a while. The reason this caught my eye is because prior to this update, the last one was back in October of 2013, and I hadn’t heard of any new threat. So I decided to do some digging.
I was recently sent an article about how to improve your iPhone battery life and asked my opinion of it. I tried reading through it, but the author lost me in the first two sentences of his first recommendation.

A problem that begins to crop up with Terminal over time is that when you open it, it can take a number of seconds to “load” to the actual command prompt.

Luckily, the cause of and resolution to this is very simple.
OS X Server comes with FreeRADIUS pre-installed, but does not have any GUI interface for enabling or configuring it. This guide will walk you through, step-by-step, how to enable, configure, and test your RADIUS server. I’ll probably follow up with a separate guide on configuring various devices to work with the FreeRADIUS server you will be configuring here.
