comment Homebrew installation of git won't take precedence over system version (in /usr/bin/)
here's an interesting turn of events: which -a git returns /usr/local/bin/git; /usr/bin/git; /usr/local/bin/git. So I renamed the old git usr/bin/git_old and got it out of the way. Now git --version returns 1.8, proving that brew did install git successfully. -- Again, I renamed /usr/bin/git to its original name... and suddenly it's working properly! I don't know why or how, but renaming /usr/bin/git and running git once seems to have solved the problem. Who knows what the root of the problem was. Thanks anyway :)

yep. ls /usr/local/bin shows git is there. Brew also confirms that it's installed. I even ran the git uninstaller (both by brew uninstall and using the one that comes with the official git download) and redid brew install git. I keep getting which git = = /usr/bin/git".

comment vim: how do I view my history of yanks and deletions?
Interesting, O'Reilly's Vi and Vim calls them "Named Buffers"... with no reference to the term registers. Hence my confusion, as I had used that book for reference. Thanks.

comment Which us best for Linux performance: install operating system on SSD and use HDD for media, or other way around?
I see. Would this then be a good idea for a setup? --> HDD1 for / (OS and apps), SSD for swap, HDD2 for media. -- If I understand correctly, swap is the most disk-intensive thing the OS does, no?
