comment Setup PPTP VPN server on linux
Keep in mind that PPTP is a totally broken and insecure Protocol that should not be used at all anymore. If you want to create a secure VPN instead of a vulnerability use L2TP, IPSec or OpenVPN with a proper configuration.

comment SSHD Consuming 100% of CPU (Hundreds of processes) - Will not die
Try moving them from the default port 22/TCP to some arbitrary high port to get rid of most automated script scanners. This is NOT a security measure, it just keeps your logs sane. Just for good measure triple check your security and think about deploying fail2ban.

comment Icon^M file on Mac OS X
Google Drive is not creating this file. Google Drive is incorrectly stripping the hidden-bit from an existing file causing it to become visible.

comment How can I disable Mac OS X's Option+click hiding behaviour?
You may be able to pass the option-click to a background window by also pressing command. If that actually works with your windowing-tool depends on how cleanly that is implemented.

comment Disable magic mouse back-forward gesture only in XCODE
You cannot configure application specific gestures in OS X itself. You could though try the free BetterTouchTool to add browser specific gestures for back/forward and disable the global system gesture. bettertouchtool.net

comment Mac mini - keyboard stops responding when switching spaces
The bug is still open with Apple and I'm afraid they won't fix it for 10.6 anymore. What sometimes helps is to keep the modifier keys used for the Spaces-Switching-Shortcut pressed for a second or two, then release them and the overlay panel should go away.

comment Do not wakeup Mac on mouse movements
Apples Bluetooth Mighty Mouse will go into hibernation if it looses connection to the computer and will only wake a computer if you press the button, not on movement alone. Switching it off completely will prevent that as well obviously. Other manufacturers may differ.

comment How can I make Tor and Polipo run (and automatically restart) using launchd on Mac OS X?
The abandoned Lingon 2.1.1 still works fine under 10.6 SnowLeopard. There also is an updated version 2.2.1 for SnowLeopard available for 3.99€ in the Mac AppStore. itunes.apple.com/at/app/lingon/id411211026?mt=12
