comment How can I increase the performance of Mac OS X?
I had gone just about 3 years without doing a fresh install of the OS and my hard drive's fragmentation was pretty bad. A poor-man's solution is to use Carbon Copy Cloner to make a copy of your drive on an external drive, format the internal one, and then copy everything back over. Also, doing a fresh install of OS X and moving everything back over is ridiculously simple compared to Windows. Took me about 4 hours to get back to the way I had things before.

comment Why is Firefox eating up all my memory, and how can I stop it?
I had the same problem. I switched to Safari and then Chrome and things seem to be better here, but that's probably not the answer you're looking for. Try disabling all your add-ons and then see if the memory usage is the same.

comment Macbook cannot see specific wireless network after being connected to it for a while
Well, I was able to connect to a different router set to channel 13 without a problem. And my wife's Macbook was able to connect to the problem router as well. So, at least these two Macbooks from 2007 were able to connect to two different routers set to channel 13. Maybe that's only the newer models?

comment With Bluetooth keyboard, Bluetooth mouse movement is jerky on Macbook Pro
I guess its just this setup. I've looked other places and occasionally certain setups are weird. Thanks!

comment With Bluetooth keyboard, Bluetooth mouse movement is jerky on Macbook Pro
I don't notice the keyboard missing or lagging in any way. I just tried hooking up a wireless Mighty Mouse and it seems to be performing just fine even when I have the other mouse connected as well as the keyboard. I guess it's just a problem with my Targus mouse and too many other devices? Sounds weird since it's fine as long as it's the only thing connected.

comment How to get monitor resolution of 1680x1050 using ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO in a dual monitor setup
When I was running I had no troubles whatsoever. Didn't notice any difference in performance, either. They're easy to uninstall if it doesn't work. Worth a shot if nothing else is working.
