comment How do you know the correct name to use for X11 fonts for XTerm*faceName or xterm -fa <NAME>?
If it helps (from the man page): "… though xfd accepts a "-fa" option to denote FreeType fonts), xfontsel has not been similarly extended …"

If it helps: the FreeBSD 10.2 manual page for xterm(1) includes information on -fa and the faceName resource.

comment Why has my Mac been running fsck_hfs for two days now?
@Nate "… it will try to verify a ~750 GB disk image over Wi-Fi! …" – that's not what happens; only a fraction of the image is transmitted. Keyword: CopyHFSMeta, please see for example forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/…

comment How does Mavericks's Finder store tags?
Weird, groups.google.com/d/msg/openmeta/DK4Of2QGkpM/KIK9VKaCQdkJ is the link given by Google for the post, but following that link sometimes fails to disclose the required post.

If you can answer your own question, with a link and a little detail, I'll be grateful. (At duckduckgo.com/?q=ndis%20PC-BSD the top hit is NDIS support - PC-BSD Forums but that topic no longer exists.)

comment How to port an Access database to the Mac?
Here, LibreOffice 4.3.0.4 does not work with an .accdb file. Base can not import the file. Dragging the file to LibreOffice imports the data to Writer, the result is not useful.
