comment “Broken” directory in OSX - what can I do?
I followed the instructions on that Apple page. When I tried to open the .sparseimage, OSX said it was damaged and opening it might break my system :-/ so I made a copy (65GB over the network.. ugh.) and then opened it. No trouble. Disk repair fixed some issues. I had some trouble resetting the permissions (changing the ownership of my home directory back to my username wouldn't "stick", until I tried setting to my username, then back to admin, then back to my username again), but all seems well now, and the directory is working again. Thanks.

comment Why do my speakers save me power?
@retracile: Same as when they're turned off. @IPX Ares: This is when the mac is asleep, so I wouldn't think the internal speakers are doing anything.

I will have a go with Disk Utility later today (I need to use the computer right now). What does hdiutil attach do?

comment How do I use rsync to backup my Mac to a NAS?
The first time you run it, it will just be a matter of copying all your data. The whole point of rsync is that subsequent runs will be faster because it only needs to transmit changes. Try running it again now -- nothing much should have changed so it should be very quick. If it's not then you may have network issues.

comment “Broken” directory in OSX - what can I do?
I have not ... but I've got 60GB in here, so that seems like a process that will take a long time. I'll give it a try if no one else comes up with an idea (maybe overnight in stages).

comment What does load average mean in unix/linux?
So a load average of less than 1 means "Processes generally never have to wait"? Can I interpret a load average of 2 as "Each process is taking roughly twice as long as it would in ideal conditions"? (I know that there's I/O to worry about as well)

comment How to diagnose a mysterious network problem?
I can't ping them -- I also get to sc-smv1461.servint.net. Can't connect to the site at the moment either...
