macOS Sierra quick tip: temporarily disable MySQL Server starts

After upgrading to macOS Sierra, my MacBook Pro would no longer shut down properly but get stuck with a black screen. Turns out that the issue might be somehow related to MySQL, as unchecking Automatically Start MySQL Server on Startup fixed the issue for me after the next forced restart.

MySQL Server control panel

I am, by the way, running MySQL 5.7.12

Let me know if you experienced this issue, too.

A note on updates

Android Studio updates usually imply having fun. To me this looks like this…

Project needs updating #1

Project needs updating #2

Currently, I am in the process of updating my book. I already have updated 40 of 80 samples, so this nice thing means I enjoy the fun of doing this stuf 80 more times. 40 times for re-doing, and 40 times for the remaining projects. I am excited to see Android 7.1; will bring us a new API level I am sure, implying I could update the 80 samples once more. Winking smile
