TAORMINA (Rixstep) — Apple's OS updates come at different times. Not so much based on geographical location either.

Whatever: 10.14.2 is now available for some machines. And we tracked it.

The entire process took under 30 minutes, including both the download and the full system scan.

The usual 'skips' were omitted. All things considered, that was unnecessary. We don't need to see what's happened to 'ULAT' during that time (it'll be excessive, that's all we need to know).
