Thomas Mathoi is a freelance project manager, creator of software, father, and husband, a native Tyrolean now living in the beautiful city of Graz in Styria. Thomas’ main focus is developing and running iPROT — software he and his colleagues created.
Thomas’ thoughts on the 6 Plus are becoming fairly standard these days:

Six Colors: Force-quitting a runaway Mac process remotely »
As someone who has a headless Mac mini tucked away in our media corner, there have been times when I’ve needed to log in to see what might be causing an issue. Screen sharing is nice, but if I know what needs to be done, it’s hard to do it faster than with Terminal. Dan Moren of Six Colors has an excellent tip on how to do just that while on another Mac, which he explains is also really helpful if your Mac is frozen and not responding. Really good tip and worth the couple of minutes it takes to try out.
