comment Can't access website on one computer, but ok on another
Since this happens at your work, it is probably something with your work network. Corporate networks are byzantine mazes of requirements, old and no longer required settings can linger in the network hardware and software configurations until someone complains to IT about it. EDIT: On, now I read the solution. Still, don't hesitate to call your IT guy(s) when this happens.

HP support was useless, they had trouble telling computer drivers from printer firmware.

It's a ByHost preference. They are used for roaming across different Macs when you have a shared network profile. Settings specific to the host you are on go in there. The code that appears there is a UUID of some kind for the machine in question. If you've migrated Macs, you can delete the ones from your old computer without any harm.

comment Resize Bluestack Sceen on Mac OS X
@Kache If you are editing the file directly in 10.9, it may not work anymore due to preferences caching. Instead you should do defaults write DOMAIN KEY VALUE.

comment Allocating more CPU usage to MATLAB
I think probably the best you could do is invoke MATLab with the command line utility nice to give it the highest CPU scheduling priority.

comment How do I re-encapsulate (passthrough) QuickTime MOV to MP4 with FFMPEG without video stutter?
MP4Box is skipping all of the H264 tracks. IsoMedia import - skipping track ID 1 (unknown type 'H264')

@Stacks28 Oh, sorry. You should quit Bluestacks first (open the Bluestacks menu and choose Quit at the bottom or press ⌘Q) before applying the changes to the preference file.

@Stacks28 Gotcha. So this would be a custom property then. System properties stored in plist files often start with NS.

Ah, that's the OS X filename! Do you know how to also block indexing of a directory in Windows too?

comment How do I copy vector graphics out of a PDF?
@DanielAndersson I can only use the tools I have at work. Getting a new one (even free) involves asking several people.

comment Mac Air 2011: system very hot during youtube playback
The problem is the staggering inefficiency and overhead of Adobe Flash. It doesn't matter what browser you use, Flash demands more than it's share of CPU time.
