comment Moving the swapfiles to a dedicated partition in Snow Leopard
On newer OS Xes (10.10, but not 10.8, unsure about 10.9), com.apple.dynamic_pager.plist is in XML format in a stock installation— both the sudo plutil -convert … lines are unnecessary.

comment Using Multiple SSH Public Keys
Adding IdentitiesOnly yes to the very top of one's SSH config file seems to affect all entries and will only try ~/.ssh/id_rsa if there isn't a matching Host entry— which seems to be to probably be the desired behavior for most workstation use-cases.

comment Mountain lion and git-completion
Strangely, a Zero Width Non-Joiner character (U+200C) got inserted in the middle of the URL in my last comment. Try the URL of this link instead: github/git/git/v1.8.5.2/contrib/completion/git-completion.bash.

The command as originally written fails on OS X 10.8.5 w/ normal user permissions (`Failed to create the file /.git-completion.bash: Permission denied`). @obvio171's comment is spot-on: tilde please.

comment Mountain lion and git-completion
I would suggest changing the URL to https://raw.githubusercontent.com/git/git/v1.8.5.2/contrib/completion/git-compl‌​etion.bash in order to grab the completion script matching ML's Git version (1.8.5.2).

comment My webcam just came on “out of the blue”
I have this exact same question for OS X. If anyone knows of an parallel question on SuperUser or AskDifferent, a link would be greatly appreciated— else I'll open a new question (sooner or later).

comment How to dump memory to a file in gdb (osx)? Need to rescue my work
sourceware.org/gdb/onlinedocs/gdb/Core-File-Generation.html seems to suggest that it isn't implemented on OS X.

I will of course try disabling my PS1 settings and see if that solves my specific issue. However, the general problem still stands.

comment How do I investigate commands being run when changing directories?
The git-status-in-PS1 thing was just a guess, because I know I have that set up. While I know there probably are other things altering my PS1 (on my system), is PS1 the only thing that gets evaluated when changing directories? Or are there other hooks I should investigate?
