Welp, unemployed for the first time since I was… 15? a college sophomore? Anyway, I'm working on something new and exciting. Stay tuned!

I have an ancient Mac Mini running Yosemite and OS X Server “headless”—after a bit of finagling—and all is well and good for the most part. However, my system log is getting spammed with the following every 10 seconds or so:
Jul 20 12:27:32 foo.bar watchdogd: [watchdog_daemon] @( wd_watchdog_open) - IOIteratorNext failed (kr=0) Jul 20 12:27:32 foo.bar watchdogd: [watchdog_daemon] @( wd_daemon_init) - could not initialize the hardware watchdog Jul 20 12:27:32 foo.bar watchdogd: [watchdog_daemon] @( main) - cannot initialize the watchdog service Jul 20 12:27:32 foo com.apple.xpc.launchd (com.apple.watchdogd): Service only ran for 0 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 10 seconds.
