comment Why does TrueCrypt need require incoming connections?
@martineau it will. See my comment to the other answer: it only pops up when there is an "open file" dialog.

comment Why does TrueCrypt need require incoming connections?
Actually the dialog does pop up when choosing an image file. My system is connected to a few network drives which are shown in the dialog. This may be OSX-specific. I was too lazy to (install and) fire up Wireshark, so I figured I'd ask here. :)

@taspeotis I assume an NSA backdoor would be a bit more subtle. If that was a backdoor, that would be more like a huge gate with an orchestra and a "Welcome" banner. :)

Wireless, actually. So reliability may not be too good.

comment Running OS X 10.6 in 64-bit mode
@Gordon, Hm, this comes as a surprise to me. I suppose this still means a 32-bit kernel needs to be aware of app's 64-bit virtual address space in order to translate the address to physical address. Or am I wrong?

comment Running OS X 10.6 in 64-bit mode
@Chealion, I keep forgetting about PAE all the time! However applications are still limited to a 4GB address space, I don't think there is a way around it.

comment Emacs ignores Ctrl+/ keystroke
Well, I already have all other keys behave properly (e.g. C-c, C-c), but not C-/ for some reason.

Web is preferred, but a Linux desktop application would be a second best thing, followed by Windows desktop.

comment X forwarding over SSH from Mac to a Linux box
I wish I could avoid using it. It seems VNC remains the only alternative at this point.

comment X forwarding over SSH from Mac to a Linux box
Unfortunately you are right. I can't run Xcode and iPhone simulator via SSH, even though I can run xterm. Also, I did not need to install XQuartz on stock 10.6 install.

comment How to wipe free disk space in Linux?
Contiguous chunks of former file contents still remain on disk, and are far from meaningless if raw disk data is examined directly.
