comment Looking for HTTP debugging proxy for Mac similar to Fiddler on Windows
@Purefan, without more detail we cannot help; it works for me, see the screenshot I just added. You may have run into mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=25831

comment Compatibility between Mac and PC Microsoft Office database
When saving as "Unicode" CSV in Excel (to preserve special characters), unfortunately you always get "UTF-16 encoding" (at least in the versions I used). One option to try is OpenOffice or LibreOffice, as those allow for exporting as UTF-8 CSV directly. Maybe Apple's Numbers allows for that too. All should be able to open your Excel file as a start. (As an aside: that's not called a "database" but a "spreadsheet". Also, leaving Excel open while opening in Notepad seems unnecessary.)

For non-German keyboards, see also When I type " nothing comes out, and if I type it again, 2 of it comes out as such: "" which explains about choosing some non-"US International" keyboard layout.

comment Preventing Word from converting heading numbers into images during PDF export
See also this answer: " [...] a checkbox for "Bitmap text when fonts may not be embedded" [...] suggests to me that some fonts may not be allowed to be embedded (for copyright reasons?)", though it seems that your numbering font is the same as the heading text itself? (Is it?)

comment Preventing Word from converting heading numbers into images during PDF export
Does the same happen with other fonts? And if you use a different PDF reader? Can you select and copy the numbers? (If yes, then the original text is included in the PDF, hence maybe the reader is to blame for rendering it in a weird way.) Did you look at the structure of the generated PDF like, like with PDFXplorer, to see if any bitmap is included to start with? (Often you can also open a PDF file in a text editor. It won't be pretty, but it might allow you to see its structure, and to see if any image is embedded or not.)

comment Preventing Word from converting heading numbers into images during PDF export
The OP wrote they had the same problem with the built-in export to PDF function; but I don't know if that's a built-in PDF printer.

comment How to white-out part of an email in my browser?
To remove blocks (rather than just words from a line), The Printliminator might be useful too. (On HTTPS sites, your browser might need to be told it's okay to load.)

comment Verify rdiff backup integrity
I don't know for sure if it's compatible, but maybe Octodiff can help, with: octodiff explain-delta your-delta-file, to see if it can read it?

comment Verify rdiff backup integrity
It's not my cup of tea, but I guess it helps to edit the question to add the rdiff commands (or maybe rdiff-backup?) you're running, and the important parts of the output they're giving you? And also the important parts of --debug, --version and --statistics?

@Free, so: Peter is right saying the antennas are most likely the same, and connecting any way is fine?

Do you mean whenever the login screen is shown, or just once after booting your Mac?

comment How to get Firefox to show XML document trees in a monospace font
True, but this feels quite spammy for a plugin that was released 4 days ago and has 6 users. How are you affiliated with this? Are you really David?

comment “Growl Popup” for Media Player 12?
(Welcome to Super User! I'm not on Windows, but WMP-GNTP seems fine. However, your original answer was not providing much detail, and linking to an executable file is not too nice either, hence the downvote I guess. I've edited; maybe the downvoter will click the downvote again to remove it.)

comment What, exactly, is “Default Website”?
Are you saying that other sites on the same IIS installation would not use port 80? (I don't know IIS, but I'd really doubt that, and Vembu's answer seems to state otherwise.)

Also note that in a hotel network, is't very unlikely that you can configure an incoming port in their router.

comment What, exactly, is “Default Website”?
Just guessing: maybe the site that is shown when no Host header is sent, in an old HTTP 1.0 request? Or the site to choose during a HTTPS handshake, when no host name might be known yet?

Sounds like an answer, @David! It might also be the hotel network that is blocking things.

comment How to hide external drive's Eject button in Mac OS X
Just in case it helps: I doubt it can be done. I have a Bitcasa Infinite Drive which cannot be ejected, but the icon still shows. When clicking it, OS X seems to eject it, but a second later Bitcasa tells me not to do that; I guess they would have hidden the eject button if doable. But maybe I'm wrong.
