Controversy

The topic of recipe-based frequent fresh reinstalls of macOS is a controversial issue. Some people are against reinstalling macOS, citing that they have never had an issue with Apple provided upgrade installs.

Welcome, Hunter.
This message should reach you at the middle of the fourth month of your calendar year, in the year 2019. If you are reading this, something has led you to search for things which bring excitement to an otherwise predictable world.
What you are reading is the first clue in a grand Hunt. It is not the first Hunt, nor of course will it be the last one, but this hunt is MINE, and so it is to me that you must prove yourself.
The treasure which will belong to the most successful Hunters and their clan is neither gold, nor jewels, nor the pieces of worthless paper that pass for money in this sad age; instead it is Bitcoin, a digital treasure forged from deep mathematical truths, in an amount equal to 1 million USD.
I have shattered this Bitcoin treasure into one thousand pieces, using the splitting magic of the wizard Shamir. To reassemble it, you or your clan must find exactly four hundred of the pieces, and meld them back together using Shamir's spell of recombination. Once you have done so,

macOS 10.13 High Sierra Mostly-Automated Setup

An easy to refer to document for regularly setting up macOS 10.13 High Siera, in flavor of my previous macOS/OSX setup gists:

I use this gist to keep track of the important software and steps required to have a functioning system after a semi-annual fresh install. I generally reinstall each computer from scratch every 6 months, and I do not perform upgrades between releases.

macOS 10.12 Sierra Setup

Custom recipe to get macOS 10.12 Sierra running from scratch, setup applications and developer environment. This is very similar (and currently mostly the same) as my 10.11 El Capitan setup recipe and 10.10 Yosemite setup recipe. I am currently tweaking this for 10.12 Sierra and expect to refine this gist over the next few weeks.

I use this gist to keep track of the important software and steps required to have a functioning system after a semi-annual fresh install. I generally reinstall each computer from scratch every 6 months, and I do not perform upgrades between releases.

This keeps the system performing at top speeds, clean of trojans, spyware, and ensures that I maintain good organizational practices for my content and backups. I highly recommend this.

You are encouraged to fork this and modify it to your heart's content to match your o
