comment Installation of large programs in Mac OS X
To sum things up, the vast majority of Applications can be moved around without a problem, even the Dock icons will still link correctly. But there a few exceptions as mentioned above and they usually let you know. Basically, if they don't give you an installer (.pkg) file, then you're probably fine to put it anywhere.

You can override the default shortcuts using the OSX Keyboard & Mouse preference pane.

comment Ungrounded laptop (Macbook Pro) buzzes in headphones, weird feeling when fingers brush lightly
It's weird, but apparently this is normal. At least it seems all the aluminum bodied Apple laptops do this when not grounded (using the 2-prong adapter). Wish I could get a clear answer from someone on what is causing this sensation.

Actually, most wall outlets and many power strip outlets are grounded. But yeah, in the world they are not that common. I guess that's what you mean and Apple doesn't make a grounded adapter for their power supplies.

comment What are the benefits of being a Linux user over a Windows user?
This is what drove to Mac OS X; I was so tired of forcing Windows to meet my needs. Now I don't think very much at all about the OS, it just works. I think this is a general reason people switch away from Windows. Though, I have used Win 7 so I don't know if that would still be the case.

I'm on the end of my Applecare plan. I'm not sure how it'll go since I'm in Korea right now. I've found an authorized service center that's pretty nice and my wife can translate, so hopefully they'll check it out or at least re-seat the card. I'll report back here after the weekend. Thanks again for the help!

Yeah, I guess so. I'll do it on the last day of my warranty, this Saturday :P It's weird because I don't have troubles with any other networks (at least that I know of) and I can see many other networks while this problematic one is invisible to my computer. Thanks so much for the help. I really appreciate you keeping up with this.

Well, I've done everything you recommended aside from re-seating/replacing the card. There are several others with Macbooks in this office. I think one is even the same model as mine. And otherwise my laptop is in tip top shape. I can't get an ethernet port plugged in. And yes, it's just this specific router. Haven't noticed any troubles with any other routers. And as far as I know it was only the channel that changed (from 11, I think) and nothing else. Before that change I was able to connect just fine.

I suspect you mean "reset" and not "reseat" and "AHT" and not "AEHT", right? Let me know if I'm wrong and please explain what you mean in that case. Is there a way I can manually reset my Airport card? I changed the encryption method on the non-problem router and it's been working fine for a couple days now. Thank you for your help in this, I really appreciate it!
