comment Mac OS X: How do I disable SSID Broadcasting with Internet Sharing over Airport?
Thanks quack. There must have been a bug earlier today. The osx tag was showing 0 results and a 0 counter in the tag, I thought maybe osx was just being retagged in favor of the mac tag, so I retagged my mac questions.

comment What's the best way I can import/display lyrics for iTunes on a mac?
Thanks debug. I'm not discounting 3rd party apps. If there's a marginally better iClip-like app, then that would work great for me. There seems to be a ton of dashboard widgets that do this, but I don't use Dashboard, and wouldn't want to constantly swap to it to see/retrieve lyrics.

comment How can I set custom key bindings and key macros on Mac OS X?
Hah.. well I use an external PC keyboard so I map alt to command and windows key to option. Depending on the keys you want to bind though your suggestion is probably the best way to bind macros and shortcut and you don't even need a separate app.

Thanks for this, but the key combinaitons you can use in keyboard shortcuts seems limited. You can't bind ctrl+shift+esc or ctrl+alt+del for example.

Thanks, I've actually been using it to remap insert to f13 and adding: $\UF710" = "paste:"; in ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict to use shift+ins.

My parent's restaurant has a wifi router, but it's on the roof level where the cable was installed. The signal it gets is weak, but works for the macbook. Their iPhones and 802.11G based computers can't get the wifi connection, maybe 802.11N on the macbook gets better penetration. I figure they could use the airport sharing from the laptop. For a restaurant type setting I don't think having WPA or WPA2 is super important. There's nothing sensitive or insecure on the network, so I figure hiding the ssid would be good enough for their purposes. It's not even active 100% of the time.
