comment managing pdf archive using Mendeley or Zotero or something else
Thanks - I look forward to this development, especially the addition of syncing capability. Currently I have switched to Zotero but would be open to another switch as Zotero is slow and crashes a lot, I've found.

comment How to restart launchd OS X without rebooting?
Sorry, is that com.apple.bsd.launchdadd.plist? I don't see launchd exactly. And thanks for the warning...

@Gordon, you cannot kill zombie processes so you have to go after the parent, unless I'm missing something.

Thanks, parent id is not 1 but a larger number, but when I look for the name of the process it is indeed /sbin/launchd. I killed it but didn't restart...everything just froze and I had to force shutdown. But I appreciate your help- this is what I was looking for in this question.

Thanks- I forgot to add that it's a zombie process, so you can't kill it because it's already dead. My question is now edited to reflect that.
