comment ssh-agent and screen
That's essentially what I do. I use screen to label one of the "tabs" inside as having the ssh-agent powers, and use that for svn work, etc. There's an extra wrinkle where I force ssh-agent to reauthorize after a number of hours, but yup, this is basically where I'm at.

I agree with both points, based on my own experience and reading things like: linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-server-73/…

comment Is there a good tool for monitoring network activity on Mac OS X?
tcpdump is what I need here - for some reason, Private Eye wasn't showing me FTPS passive connections, but tcpdump did.

comment How do I disable animations in Preview in Lion?
I have no answer yet. I only just encountered the Preview animation, somehow -- I normally use continuous scroll, but for this ("A Lesser Photographer", which has been mentioned a lot on the net recently) I wanted to see whole pages at a time. And, man -- this is really annoying, even on a 2011 MBP. Lion, Lion, why do you hate me so?

comment Mac to Mac SSH network problems
@JShoe: It's probably more complication than the fun will be worth, but: 1. Have one of you find out the external IP address of your router, via whatismyipaddress.com. 2. Have that person use the admin tools for the router to do a "port mapping" of port 22 to the 192.168.1.x address of their computer. 3. Then you can try to log in at joe@external-ip.

comment My 2007 iMac is extremely slow, yet memory and CPU are not starved
General recommendation I've heard is to aim for free space >= 10% of capacity.

comment Why does the Mac OS X firewall dialog recurringly pop-up and disappear by itself (without letting me respond) under Snow Leopard?
I never saw this on my 2.33 Core 2 Duo machine. I bought the new "early 2011" MBP, transferred all my data from the old machine, and now I'm seeing this problem for the first time ever. It's really aggravating! I don't believe it's just an SMB problem, since obviously, I'm using the same network environment I was before, just a new machine (and a special 10.6.6 build for the new laptop).

comment can I make Excel always open a delimited text file with “text” translation?
You're right, that would work, but I would rather not change all code which writes out tab-delimited files to put quotes around things Excel might interpret as values. Excel is just a convenient viewer, it's not actually the end consumer of this process, if you know what I mean. Thank you, though!

comment can I make Excel always open a delimited text file with “text” translation?
@datatoo: These are either input files coming in from clients, or output files we're sending back to them. I won't swear I don't ever want Excel to not process them, but the vast majority of the time, I want "1/2" to stay "1/2". (re-reads...) You know, I had glossed over the "template" aspect of AdamV's answer. I may have to look at that again! Thank you.
