comment Is it a bad idea to use the same private ssh key on multiple computers?
It would probably be mitigated by having a passphrase on the key. In actuality though, you could probably use ssh forwarding (using an agent), and then only have the one key per real machine you use, and actually have it password protected.

comment Unfolding not matching problem with TextMate/Python mode
Aargh. Stack Exchange won't let me change just one character: it should be dedent, or unindent, not indent.

comment Specify top's screen width in batch mode
The advantage of top is that it does show other data related to overall CPU load. I'm using this to log what else is taking up CPU time when a slow request is detected on my web server: I care about the load at that instant, and ps doesn't show that very well.

comment Virtual Desktop for OSX: Not “Virtual Desktops”
How do you handle the Menubar? If you pan around, and it moves off the screen, it's useless. If it stays on screen, but you can pan 'past' it, then you lose Fitts' Law.

comment How to cause app to launch on startup — Mac
If the app in question does not appear in the Dock, you'll need to use the other method, though.

comment Focus Follows Mouse or Sloppy Focus on Mac OS X
I think the first aspect of this answer is oft-misunderstood. With FFM, then it would be hard to use the menus of any app that isn't "touching" the menubar.
