comment is it possible to create a locate database for a network volume in Mac OS X?
Have you considered using mdfind (I.e. Spotlight) instead?

comment mac os x mavericks (10.9) location of ssh log
As a heads-up: there are pre-made scripts that might achieve what you're looking for, like sshblack for example.

comment How can I determine ALL of the DNS's that OSX is using, storing, and handing out?
@mklement Uh, nice catch! Upvote for pointing that out, though I have no idea in which way Apple presumes we're going to resolve network issues now. So far I'm not aware of a reliable workaround, I'll update my answer once (if) I find one.

comment Getting the bundle identifier of an OS X application in a shell script
Using defaults read seems like the right way to do it (or else querying LaunchServices via Obj-C) - why do you consider 0.1s slow?

comment Redirecting Terminal.app to iTerm.app
@slhck I surely hope that Apple would prevent (by checksums, codesigning and sandboxing) replacing Terminal´s executables with other code! And I totally agree, I´ve never seen other .apps open Terminal; only .command files could be an issue, but you can change the "open with…" assignment there.

comment Access Finder's “Open With” menu from the commandline (for tab completion)
Well you could think about using lsregister to read out the various application claims. I don´t have an idea on how to parse the lsregister dump beautifully, but as a start, try lsregister -dump | grep -B 40 "\.avi" and try to incorporate that in a script.

comment Safe substitute for OS X `rm`?
disappearedng: well, I think mv is still your safest bet. You could easily create a new folder on your other partition called Trash (or however you like it) and then mv the files there. Once you´re sure they can be deleted, delete and recreate that complete folder.

comment Safe substitute for OS X `rm`?
Please, don´t get used to an aliased rm, rather get used to mv files/to/be/deleted ~/.Trash. It´s safe and consistent across systems.

comment Is there a Mac to-do-list allowing a task-tree (task hierarchy)?
I´m not sure whether you want to create a tree or just a linear sequence of tasks; anyway I guess you might want to check out OmniFocus omnigroup.com/products/omnifocus which has sequential tasks as an option.
