I didn't think I'll see the day when I'll install emacs on a Mac... But my new roles at work landed me a new Mac mini M1.

Been trouble shooting for two days, resolved various issues.

1. Emacs wouldn't connect to any package lists without changing the tls method (forgot the line but fixed it)

2. Emacs has access to all files, but Ruby, which is what's running emacs, didn't. So Dired didn't have access to certain directories. Figured it out.

@dekkzz78 on a Mac, the emacs app is using ruby scripts to run certain functions. Therefore need to allow ruby access.
