When I was about 12 or 13, my father introduced me to the best cake I’ve ever eaten–a basic bundt cake, as I remember, soaked in a wonderfully sticky orange syrup.
I tried to find the crinkled, yellowed NY Times clipping in my father’s things after he passed, but I never succeeded.
This NYT Cooking recipe by Moira Hodgson is very, very close to what I remember. It’s probably better to my adult palate because Dad always used orange juice concentrate; I’m sure it was hard to get good oranges in the winter in Maryland. I’ve added a bit of Northern California foodie culture by decorating not only with the called-for icing sugar but also pomegranate seeds and cardamom-scented whipped cream…and a couple of tablespoons of Bruto Americano in the syrup.

Merry Christmas, everyone–

…the uninstall has to be formatted like: profiles -R -p com.apple.mdm.server.corp.company.com.123af456-78e9-112-123a-123a456789.alacarte …and like @nessts said, you’ll need to get that whole identifier string from the “` profiles -P “` command. If you have a password required to uninstall the profile, that’ll still be necessary from the command line, like it would through the gui. Hope that helps!

To script profile deployment, administrators can add and remove configuration profiles using the new /usr/bin/profiles command. To see all profiles, aggregated, use the profiles command with just the -P option:/usr/bin/profiles -P
– As with managed preferences (and piggy backing on managed preferences for that matter), configuration profiles can be assigned to users or computers. To see just user profiles, use the -L option:

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Alan! If you’re looking for a quick set of tips on how to get up to speed using Python for macOS administration, this is super helpful for playing with plists:
If you follow the examples in the documentation, though, you may run into some errors.For example, if you paste in the code on how to generate a .plist (even if you import datetime, plistlib, and time), you’ll get an error ofNameError: name ‘fileName’ is not definedand then if you actually define fileName with the past to a file, you’ll getNameError: name ‘dump’ is not definedNow I get that probably dump needs to be imported from some other module, but seriously in documentation you need to have code that people can copy and paste and see the results of and tweak, instead of having code that’s basically useless.
