comment Throttle network bandwidth per application in Mac OS X
I find the FreeBSD man page for ipfw, but according to Wikipedia, ipfw was de-emphasized in OS X starting in 10.4 thru 10.5. I don't find ipfw on my installation of 10.10 today, and both Homebrew and MacPorts come up with no actively developed installations for ipfw.

Mp3 files also work (at least as far as I've tested in Snow Leopard)

comment Mac-like alt-tab replacement for Windows 7?
Not a solution, so here's a nifty tip: In the Mac OS X, you can press Command-Tilde (~) to switch between the windows of the currently open application. Third party software like Witch (manytricks.com/witch) can give your Mac a more Windows like window switching interface also.

comment Is it possible to prevent windows in Mac OS from opening below the bottom edge of the screen?
Thanks for the recommendation. I'm not as irritated by the Mac OS X window handling, but I'm very impressed with SizeUp's screen cast on their site. Thanks!

Very nice, I'll have to look at it later. Are you aware of any tutorials on it for my intended use?

comment Throttle network bandwidth per application in Mac OS X
I downloaded trickle 1.0.5, ran "$ sudo ./configure" and got the following error just like before: "configure: error: libevent not found". I checked, and MacPorts has libevent installed. Besides, I'm not as fond of software that hasn't been updated in years.

I couldn't get trickle 1.0.6 or 1.0.7 to build. After running ./configure I get an error saying that libevent cannot be found. I installed libevent via MacPorts and got the same error when I tried again.

Ah... yup, that's right. All created folders show up below under your account's name.

comment Linux binary support under Mac OS X?
A real box is always faster than a VM solution. However, VMs are far cheaper.

comment MacBookPro RAM: CL7 or CL9
The important bit is that it's 1066MHz Quoted: Processor and memory - 2.53GHz or 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 3MB on-chip shared L2 cache running 1:1 with processor speed; or 2.8GHz or 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 6MB shared L2 cache - 1066MHz frontside bus - 4GB (two 2GB SO-DIMMs) of 1066MHz DDR3 memory; two SO-DIMM slots support up to 8GB Also: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ddr3#Modules Both 1066 MHz and 1333 MHz support the 7-7-7 timing.

comment Web page from the terminal
FYI, Snow Leopard drops the creator types, so the second command would generally open in the default browser unless the individual file has a different application set to open it from the Get Info window.

comment ^+Left Arrow and ^+Right Arrow suddenly stopped working on OS X
I've noticed from time to time my Spaces settings get reset to blank values. I'm not sure what causes it, but it's quite frustrating that I have to go back into the System Preferences and reset the settings for Expose and Spaces.

comment Backup Gmail using Mail.app and IMAP without redundancy
@Cawas I deleted it because it was off topic, the wrong answer, and I didn't want to get voted down by anyone. I felt embarrassed that I had glossed over your question without reaching it's point. And while 10 or 15 points of reputation feels good here or there, I notice that losing 2 points for a vote down is seemingly more depressing. Good luck with your question! : D

comment Rosetta Stone data on Dropbox
FYI, the tag "rosetta" could be confusing here since there is a Mac OS X technology which serves for executing PPC code on an Intel Apple computer and is also called Rosetta.

comment Keeping Mac OSX up and sleepless while task / app is running
Thanks for bringing my answer back up to a non-negative value. I live by scripting. I'm terrible with BASH, but I absolutely love AppleScript and running Terminal commands from it.
