“• You are unable to complete a purchase from the iTunes Store.
• You are told that you do not have permission to modify your iTunes Media folder when downloading from the iTunes Store.
• You cannot play content you purchased from the iTunes Store.
• An alert appears with the following text:
‘There was an error storing your authorization information on this computer. The required directory was not found or has a permission error.’l

6 Ways to Get More Out of Your Mac's Notification Center « Mac Tips :: Gadget Hacks

Also:
"By default, banner alerts on your Mac stick around for roughly five seconds, which may not be enough time for a casual glance. More often than not, I miss the alert and need to check the Notification Center to get a second look. Thankfully, there's an easy way to make them stick around for as long as you want. In the Terminal app again, use the following command.

Use SF Mono Outside of Terminal and Xcode – Collin Donnell
“I really like the SF Mono font Apple includes in Sierra and High Sierra (even more than Menlo), but for some reason it’s only available inside of Terminal and Xcode. So I’m out of luck when I’m writing in MarsEdit, BBEdit, or any other third party app. Fortunately, you can just copy the font from Terminal’s app bundle and install it so it’s available everywhere.

“Run this command from the Terminal and you’re all set:

cp -R /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app/Contents/Resources/Fonts/. /Library/Fonts/

“You could also ⌘-G in Finder and copy the files over that way if you prefer.”

Change the Delay When Dragging Windows Within Spaces on Mac | OSXDaily
“You may have noticed that there’s a delay when dragging a window to a new space, which is handy for not accidentally dragging windows into a new Space but kind of annoying if you are expecting it to enter a new workspace instantly. The instant switching of workspaces is a lot closer to how these workspace managers, or ‘virtual desktops’ work in the Unix world, and if you have a background of using a Linux desktop you may miss that instant desktop switching.”

How to Install and Use the Linux Bash Shell on Windows 10
"Microsoft has worked with Canonical to offer a full Ubuntu-based Bash shell that runs atop this subsystem. Technically, this isn’t Linux at all. Linux is the underlying operating system kernel, and that isn’t available here. Instead, this allows you to run the Bash shell and the exact same binaries you’d normally run on Ubuntu Linux. Free-software purists often argue the average Linux operating system  should be called “GNU/Linux” because it’s really a lot of GNU software running on the Linux kernel. The Bash shell you’ll get is really just all those GNU utilities and other software."
