comment Prevent applications flooding me with Growl alerts
Unfortunately, this only works if you're using Growl. There is no option to only disable Bonjour notifications in the OS X native Notifications preferences.

CyberDuck is now and has been available for Windows for a while now.

comment Mount a SMB share's subfolder as a drive in OS X Lion
This works, but is a pain. It would be great if this could be automated in some way.

comment Chrome continue download when OS X sleeps
One thing to note is that OS X is typically pretty good at staying awake when it's still doing stuff. Hopefully Chrome is smart enough to let OS X know that it's not ready for bed yet.

My MacBook Pro no longer does this since upgrading to Lion.

comment Ungrounded laptop (Macbook Pro) buzzes in headphones, weird feeling when fingers brush lightly
The manufacturer didn't say that, a third-party Apple authorized dealer in Korea said that. The adapter Apple sells for Korea is only 2 prong. But it does have a three prong US adapter but I haven't seen a three prong US to Korea adapter yet. I'll look harder next time I'm in Korea. And thank you for explaining more about this, I really appreciate it.

comment Spaces suddenly stops responding to mouse button activation
That's what I ended up doing, as well. But then sometimes there is sometimes a delay before Spaces is activated. Now I've got USB Overdrive and have assigned the F8 key to the appropriate mouse button and it's working much better. I'm think it's a problem with Spaces since I can still assign mouse buttons to Exposé.

I've actually tried using Open Office and it failed pretty badly at opening the .doc file, Pages did a much better job.

I have Microsoft Word on my Mac but really would rather not use it. But yes, Word gives more fined grained control over lists.

comment Can I safely exclude sleepimage from OS X backups
Have you found Chronosync a better solution for creating a bootable backup than Carbon Copy Cloner?

I just tried it and it didn't make a difference. Still having the problem. Thanks anyways!

comment Spaces suddenly stops responding to mouse button activation
Doing this hasn't made a difference. But it did give me the idea to install the Targus software of have it point at Spaces for that button.

comment Spaces suddenly stops responding to mouse button activation
Yeah, no other problems. Works fine when activated via keyboard or hotspot. It's just the mouse button.

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!
