I'm a software developer and inveterate geek (like many here, I suspect). For work I use so many tools I usually can't remember them all, but C, Java/J2EE, scripting (unix shell + others) and release engineering tools figure heavily in the list.

@Connor Macbook Air, latest model. Projected battery life is ~ 3.5h, instead of 7-11

comment How can I identify which application is responsible for my battery life being short?
Reviews of the MBA have indicated that routine usage actually provides better than advertised battery life. ex: osxdaily.com/2010/10/30/macbook-air-2010-battery-life I'm not saying I'm expecting this, and it's also not relevant to my question; I'm not interested in "is this okay?" I'm interested in "what's the cause of this?"

Actually, that comment counts as an answer, I guess. "No" is still an answer :)

... although the specific requirement to handle private nntp servers isn't addressed in that other question, now that I look at it. Reconsider?

Excellent catch; sorry, didn't see that when I asked it.

That has the same effect as my second attempt, above. No go, sadly.

Term has its own set of issues, starting with some interesting interactions with my extant set of bashrc tweaks.
