comment Moving the swapfiles to a dedicated partition in Snow Leopard
@LaurentCrivello: That's an intriguing idea, but are you sure it is really working? (see details in my note #1) dynamic_pager tends to silently fall back to using /private/var/vm if the target partition has not been mounted yet. I'm not 100% sure how symbolic links work under those conditions.

Is there any way to do this without having local administrator access? My IT department locks things down pretty heavily

@Slipp Douglas: Looks legit to me. The StartOnMount flag was added in 10.5 according to: mactech.com/articles/mactech/Vol.25/25.10/…

comment How can I speed up a selective deep copy command in unix?
Your suggestion to use -print0 and xargs -0 worked beautifully. Thank you!

+1, but will that preserve the directory structure? I'm trying not to preserve that structure. i.e. export should contain no subdirectories, just a big list of files

That certainly worked for login, which is awesome, but it doesn't work for unlock.

It's a good thought, and the first thing I started with when I went down this route. The problem is that the swap partition is not always mounted at the point in time when dynamic pager launches. See note #1 in the question itself for details about what I mean.

I tried it out on my laptop, and it seems to work. I'll keep an eye on it for a couple of days to be sure, but it looks like you've simplified the whole process immensely! Nice work :)

That is an interesting idea. I'm not sure if it is "legal" to put more than one program into the ProgramArguments array, but it is certainly worth a shot. Have you tried it out?

comment How can I modify keyboard shortcuts for Firefox?
For anyone else who goes down this path: Once you've installed the add-on, it places a new menu item called "Keyconfig" in the "Tools" menu. The menu item brings up a window which can be used to assign snippets of JavaScript to individual keystrokes. My previous link goes to some example snippets.

Perfect. That's a lot of hoops to jump through, but keyconfig ended up working. Thanks again!

+1 and thank you for the link, but that add-on appears to be only for older versions of Firefox. I'm using version 3.6. I'll add that information to my question.
