comment What does “unknown command” mean in Pidgin?
If your message begins with a slash, Pidgin will interpret it as a command. Use /say MSG to work around this (where MSG is the message beginning with a slash).

comment Accessing Environment Variables in a Scheduled Task
See tsvayer's answer - you don't need to reboot the machine. Just the task scheduler process.

comment Permissions restoring from Time Machine - Finder copy vs “cp” copy
Thanks for the fantastic answer! One thing I don't understand though - if Apple has to special case Time Machine anyway, why doesn't Finder always ask for your password, so that it can always get permissions right? And would it be worth reporting this in Radar?

@wizlog I agree, it was getting confusing. I just rewrote it.

comment Permissions restoring from Time Machine - Finder copy vs “cp” copy
I've added the permissions of some folders that work above. Yes, I just set up Time Machine this morning - it's the same computer and it's the default Time Machine volume.

comment Permissions restoring from Time Machine - Finder copy vs “cp” copy
And I like your idea, but I can confirm that cp -a /Volumes/Deimos/Backups.backupdb/Ben’s\ MacBook\ Air/Latest/Macintosh\ HD/opt/osdev . still works.

I don't think that Finder should need the administrator password as cp doesn't need to be sudoed.
