Swift: Type Casting in For Loop

Okay. I need to jot this down somewhere, because i find myself googling this snippet, at least once a month.
It’s not complex, but for some reason, it’s constantly slipping off my mind!

for case let children as ElementNode in rootNode.children { }

Burning Kali in macOS High Sierra!

To my future self: this is how you can ‘burn’ an ISO file into a flashdrive, so that it’s bootable!

hdiutil convert -format UDRW -o destination.img kali-linux-2017.2-amd64.iso
diskutil list
diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk2 1 "Free Space" "unused" "100%"
sudo dd if=destination.img.dmg of=/dev/disk2 bs=1m
diskutil eject /dev/disk2

macOS: Format as FAT32

Find the device path:

diskutil list

Format as FAT32:

sudo diskutil eraseDisk FAT32 NAME MBRFormat /dev/disk2

Thanks Apple, for having FAT32 as an option in the Disk Utility app. It’s so much nicer than having to remember a CLI command.</sarcasm>
