comment Change the Login Shell of Mac OS X Lion from bash to zsh
@pdwalker Right, I wrote this answer on the assumption that you read the question (and clicked the link there, which describes how to do this except for the name of the preference pane).

Or possibly HISTIGNORE?

comment What is Windows “hosts” file alternative for OSX?
@LieRyan I'd have expected it's obvious that any permissions users give themselves here should be taken away after everything works. Isn't it?

comment tar xvf with * failed on some platform like HP-UX or SuSE
tar x extracts, so having the exact same files around (which is needed to find) seems like a very special use case.

comment What are PATH and other environment variables, and how can I set or use them?
@Pacerier I don't think that's right. There is no sane configuration where PATH equals C:\Program files.

comment What are PATH and other environment variables, and how can I set or use them?
@Pacerier This answer was collaboratively edited, and that section not written by me. That said I just checked and it seems %PATH% by default contains entries referring to folders in C:\Program files, meaning that it evaluates to a string with spaces that needs proper quoting.

comment Don't exit full screen when pressing escape in apps like Safari on Lion
@foregon I'd expect page event handling to have absolutely no effect while you're in the address bar.

comment Simple Cron task in Mac OS X Lion
@Michael.M: FWIW I think Snips' comment linking to a still published article is more useful. It even mentions cron is still supported (on current OS X), but still deprecated. Note that AFAIU deprecated does not mean it's gone or broken, it just means it should not be used (and often that something else should be used instead), usually because it's expected to be removed some time in the future.
