@RaduSimionescu Probably just cached. Look for ways to reset your Launch Services database.

comment How to get past the login page with wget?
@LucaG.Soave It's to be expected that the specifics of a non-API like this change after more than 2.5 years. But the basic advice should still hold -- do what your browser would do.

comment Have a file named ~ (tilde) in my home-directory
@Bob Well, rm -- * does what it says on the tin (what else would you expect?). You won't accidentally rm -f * though, just because there's a file named -f.

comment Os X - Why do I need to turn on WiFi to determine closest location
@Yashua Actual GPS or similar is not a feature of any Mac I'm aware of. That said, the density of iPhones and similar devices with Wi-Fi and GPS that send that data to Apple (and Wi-Fi networks themselves) is probably enough for a 90+% success rate by checking for Wi-Fi SSIDs from your Mac alone.

comment Os X - Why do I need to turn on WiFi to determine closest location
@Yashua It's not clear what you're asking. If you have enabled Wi-Fi on your Mac, it knows about your own and neighboring Wi-Fi networks, and can match this with a database of known Wi-Fi networks and their physical locations.
