The "Genius Bar" in Apple Stores offers IT-Support for customer's basic needs. We want to take up this approach in a way that fits the Chaos Communication Congress and support any make and type of device there is. We are not (primarily) there to help out with configuration of e-mail-accounts or resetting passwords, but plan to provide power bricks, adaptors, restore media and backup drives, help people out when they don't remember how to set up a backup and give general advice on tech stuff.

Further, we want to bring people in contact who can help each other.

Currently, we can help you out with the following equipment:

Type Description Availability
Charger/Power Brick Classic Apple MagSafe, 85 Watts Can be used at the Prodigy Bar
Adaptor USB-C to USB-A 3.0 On request
Adaptor USB-C to Thunderbolt 2 On request

Slow disk performance MacBook Pro 2009, Samsung 840 SSD C/S: Read and write speed is abysmally slow. System feels sluggish at times. Found out that trim wasn't enabled. Enabled trim using trimforce, wrote huge blob of data to disk, deleted blob, restored usability.
