Nostalgia Files: Macintosh Risk Game for System 6+

I was invited to play low-stakes Risk recently and figured it would be prudent to brush up a little.

Imagine my delight when I came across this childhood favourite:

risk

I recall becoming quite the little dictator playing this game on my Mac SE and, of course, most of the macs at school. Apparently it was released in 1986 by Antonie J. Engel a.k.a. Tone Engel as shareware (remember that?! on floppies!).

A big thank-you to Richard Loxley for preserving this gem and making it available as part of a Mini vMac virtual machine for Windows and OS X at http://www.richardloxley.com/fun/risk/.

Mounting an NFS Share on OS X: There was a Problem Connecting to the Server

You’ve tried to mount your linux NFS share via the Go menu’s Connect to Server dialogue but you keep getting an error message stating:

There was a problem connecting to the server

There was a problem connecting to the server


You know your URI is formatted correctly (nfs://server/share) and you can mount the share on other Linux hosts so what gives?

It turns out that in order to get OS X to play ball we have to add insecure to the export options of the shares you would like to mount. For example:

/home/karma/torrents 192.168.1.0/24(ro,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check,insecure)

OS X … is Damaged and can’t be Opened. You Should Move it to the Trash.

“This App” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

...is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the trash

…is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the trash


If you have just downloaded a new app and received this message upon attempting to launch it chances are it’s fine, OS X is just being a good nanny.

To fix, open System Preferences… under the Apple menu. Open Security & Privacy then click the lock to make changes. Change your Allow applications downloaded from: radio selection to Anywhere and give it another spin.
