comment Online backup services that cannot access your data
@Keltari can any of you suggest a stack exchange site where this would be appropriate? it's a strictly objective question, and it's got everything to do with technology and computers, so it seems like there would be a good fit somewhere.

comment Create bash script to open URL in Mac OS X
is it possible to place the shell script in the *.app directory (maybe *.app/Contents/Resources/Scripts)? How do I reference that relative path from within the applescript?

this is surprisingly powerful, but it takes a bit of vim-ing before you can really get good with it.

Do you have any idea whether that will cause other problems (like not saving preferences)?

comment Global keyboard shortcut to open a tab in Chrome on Mac OS X
Chrome keeps overwriting the Info.plist file with the original, so it throws away the additions to the URLTypes. Any ideas how I could make this more permanent? Thanks.

python just wraps applescript, right? i don't see how this would improve performance

this is good, although the performance problem seemed to be largely caused by using AppleScript/osascript in the first place. I appreciate the tip though!

comment Remove Mac OS X SSH Passphrase Pop-Up
I don't have a ~/.ssh/config file, and the system config files are the defaults that were installed a couple of days ago w/ the OS. I looked through /etc/ssh_config and everything is still commented out.

comment Remove Mac OS X SSH Passphrase Pop-Up
@Kevin Panko: the environment (including SSH_AUTH_SOCK) does not change between attempts to ssh to machines, regardless of the order in which I try. I agree, something must be different, but I don't think it is the environment variables.

comment Remove Mac OS X SSH Passphrase Pop-Up
@kch: I'm sure the OS X Keychain is a very useful tool, but I'm trying to stick to a configuration that works in Linux as well as OS X. Also, when I search 'ssh' in Keychain I cannot find any entry in any of the keychains.
