 +====== Prey ======
 +[[https://panel.preyproject.com/]] for when the device goes missing. (Or is stolen by a thief.)
 +====== NFS for OS X ======
 +On the server side get your user ID and group ID (id -u; id -g), and update /etc/exports with something like:
 +/path/to/share 10.?.?.?(rw,sync,insecure,all_squash_anonuid=<uid>,anongid=<gid>)
 +10.?.?.? would be the IP of the Macintosh. (That'll have to be updated every time it changes.)  For a Macintosh to connect, "insecure" was said to be needed. And "all_squash" was needed for the uid and gid to be set.  Restart and check the NFS server with "sudo systemctl restart nfs-server.service; systemctl status nfs-server.service".
 +Get the "hostname" for the server for the next bit on the client side. Call it jdoe-t3610.
 +On the client side, you could manually mount the NFS volume with something like, "<nowiki>nfs://jdoe-t3610/path/to/share</nowiki>"
 +Or better, configure automounter by adding a line to <nowiki>/etc/auto_master</nowiki>:
 +/- auto_sandbox -rw
 +And then make the file /etc/auto_sandbox
 +/sandbox nfs://jdoe-t3610/path/to/share
 +For the purpose of P4 client compatibility with the dev system, I use a symbolic link at root.
 +$ sudo ln -s /sandbox/sandbox/stb/ /link_to_p4_root
 +If you want your changes to take effect immediately,
 +$ sudo automount -vc
