comment Is it better to use a laptop on battery or on AC power?
I really don't understand Apple's idea of cycles. I doubt the battery will be affected by whatever the chip on the battery thinks is a cycle... Or is Apple trying to say that the way of charging is really different when it gets to another cycle?

comment Blacklist for To/CC in Thunderbird
More generic, this might apply to any Reply to All, even when not using that Bcc-trick. As you're the sender, why should you be in To or Cc to start with? (And the mail server does not see this is the same message? Odd. If I include myself multiple times, then I only get a single message.)

comment Recursive chmod: rw for files, rwx for directories
Doesn't "{}" need to be quoted, just in case paths hold spaces? Like find . -type d -exec chmod -vc 755 "{}" \; (including -vc for some feedback). (And maybe, just to clarify, add the two standalone commands to the answer as well?)

Any real-life example of such extension? Or some references to articles on that?

comment If Mac code signing is tampered with, what might fail?
Interesting, especially as Apple lists this in "Mac OS X 10.5: Disk Utility's Repair Disk Permissions messages that you can safely ignore" at support.apple.com/kb/TS1448 No word from Apple on how this was changed and why it doesn't matter though... Does codesign --verify indeed show a broken signature?

comment How to get outlook email attachment onto a file server?
I think it would be best not to handle this in the mail client, but on the mail server. (Like with Exim filters, if you happen to use that.) So, if that's an option, then please provide some details about that mail server, and about that shell account?

Don't re-ask; it will be moved if people think it's required.

comment Resize a photo in HTML and keep aspect ratio
Do you only want to show them smaller (simply only specify the height and not the width)? Or do you actually want to create thumbnails (that are also smaller in download size -- which however might not matter if you expect your visitors to click through to the larger photo after all)?

revised htaccess not working on Mac when copied, but works from a NTFS partition
Has file actually been copied...?

comment htaccess not working on Mac when copied, but works from a NTFS partition
I assume: 1) Yes, otherwise it would not read it from the other partition either? And 2) I wondered about the same thing, but I doubt referencing a file on another partition does the conversion on the fly. So why would that work from NTFS then? It might have been erroneously auto-converted during copying though, which file .htaccess might reveal?
