comment How can I become root in Yosemite?
This does not apply to Yosemite. Just verified on 10.10.5. Once you've opened the Directory Utility you're not prompted for an admin account name nor password. There is a Lock button next to the text "Not authenticated" in about the middle of the dialog. Clicking that and logging in with an admin account will unlock it, however, the "Enable Root User" in the Edit menu remains greyed out. Ideas?

comment How to check all timestamps of a file?
@FatalError: So why does stat <file> show a Birth timestamp that is the time when <file> was created? Is it just a coincidence? Is it the birthdate of the inode?

comment Share a Wifi connection through wifi on Mac OS X
@Daniel Beck and @Jay_Booney are not correct – otherwise, how could Connectify on Win7 share a Wifi connection [1,2]? @Arkan: Unfortunately I don't have a solution for you for Mac (was searching for one myself) but was compelled to correct the above comments.
