comment emacs: How to return to last position after scroll/page up/down?
Thanks from me too! For, (umm many!) years, I've typed "<>" before going scrolling around, just have a search target to return to.

comment How do I optimize TeamViewer?
It seems like the first test would be to disable Granola and then compare the teamviewer and crossloop. It's hardly an equivalent comparison if one had run without Granola and the other one with it.

Did you really mean command+downarrow for "Top of Document" or is that a typo?

What file system is on your thumb drive? It sounds like OS-X doesn't recognize it.

comment Mac OS X: How to change the color label of files from the Terminal
In AppleScript Editor, you can compile and save a script as an application. You can run that by specifying its path. You can run on line of AppleScript by preceding it with "osascript" and quoting the Applescript command. The quoting can get complex, sometimes...

comment Changing emacs bindings on Mac OS X for command to be meta
Yes, Aquamacs' claim to Apple compatibility is that it overlays Apple's GUI's key bindings over Emacs's. Gnu/Carbon Emacs already uses command as meta and works the way you always thought Emacs did.

comment what is bandwidth?
(moved:) In an unfortunate misapplication of the term, you'll also find some providers use it to mean the total amount of data you transferred (or that they allow you to transfer) during a billing period, which is more properly described as total transfer or transfer quota, respectively.

comment transferred images from camera to pc lacks quality
To confirm whether it's a driver issue, bypass the driver completely by transferring the pictures with a card reader instead of with the camera.

comment Close or load a blank page after middle-click on tab in Firefox
In Preferences | Tabs, unticking "Always show the tab bar" will allow that only remaining tab to actually go away. Close-buttons are controlled by another about:config variable, "browser.tabs.closeButtons". This page in Mozilla's Knowlegebase describes the possible values and their behaviors: kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.tabs.closeButtons .

comment Search for online Skype users
Ok, perhaps that information is out of date. But Skype's auto-update just said I have the latest version. The Windows version may have gone beyond us. (Nah, that wouldn't happen.....)

What I meant to say is I think GParted can resize non-destructively.

comment Is it a good idea to have the operating system on a solid state drive?
Zifre: In that case, wouldn't adding RAM be the cheaper and faster solution, and reducing or eliminating the pagefile in favor of more file space?

comment Can the Snow Leopard firewall remember my choices?
None that I know of (else the signature wouldn't have much security value, I suppose). But I seem to remember that, when I was asked to allow/deny incoming connections to an application, the same dialog also offered the option to remember that choice in the future. (Sorry, I wasn't able to force an application to ask me just now so I could be sure).

comment Clipboard content automatically erased
And nothing user-related has taken place at that point? The phenomenon must be related to some process that is or isn't running at a given time, if it isn't reliably repeatable. My only other suggestion is to get a snapshot (f/ex, with Process Explorer) of the currently running processes taken at times when you can reproduce the phenomenon and at times when you can't. Then compare the two snapshots for their differences.

comment How to circumvent file transfering restrictions on a usb disabled computer?
OK in the same vein as above, here are a couple more ideas: * Host your files on a server that will serve them over http[s]. * Host them yourself temporarily, with HFS File Server ( rejetto.com/hfs ); runs in Windows & Wine/Linux and serves over a port of your choosing. * Carry them to the isolated computer in a laptop or Ethernet External Hard Drive and transfer them over Ethernet / Windows File Sharing.
