comment Can FIGNORE be limited to specific applications?
@romainl Just tried. It doesn't appear to work. FIGNORE may need to be set in the shell rather than used per command in that way. (Hadn't thought to do it that way - a good thought, but looks like it doesn't work.)

comment find command is giving error on Mountain Lion
If you're coming from Linux or getting tips from a Linux source, it's always worth remembering that many commands on OSX are BSD versions, not the GNU ones you might be familiar with. They differ in many small, subtle ways and some big, not-so-subtle ways too.

comment Bash: changing font size
You can use ANSI escapes (or tput) for bold just like for color: wiki.bash-hackers.org/scripting/terminalcodes. Either way, don't forget to reset the output when you're done.

comment Migrating from cmd to mac
Links I found useful for learning about launchd and launchctl: dustin.github.com/2010/02/28/running-processes.html, alvinalexander.com/mac-os-x/…, alvinalexander.com/mac-os-x/…. Also, if you are a Ruby person, check out Mike Perham's lunchy.

@romainl No, it isn't if you want to build vim with support for options not included by MacVim.

comment vim: how do I view my history of yanks and deletions?
@NoamGagliardi That book is mediocre at best (not the norm for O'Reilly). I highly recommend Practical Vim.
