comment CanoScanLiDE 25 driver for OS X Mountain Lion
Not really awesome considering how many features and how much control you lose Vs having the full driver installed..

comment Vim compiled features list
What I wanted to do was to discover whether Vim natively exposed this information so that I could query it without having to "parse" the help page for feature-list... like I can do for individual features (e.g. has("syntax") to see if the binary was compiled with syntax capabilities)

Thanks! :) Do you think the app should expose this in the form of a dictionary? Keys = features, Values = 1/0 (maybe?). I was looking for programmatic access.. as you have with "has(feature)"

That's right. :version is what I am "reflecting" on at the moment, but it's a hack.. ideally one would get a dictionary where keys are 'browse', 'wildmenu', 'X11', etc.. and values are 0 || 1 !

comment Chrome start page: no “Most Visited” nor “Apps”, just “Blank” wanted
How is patching a source file maintainable in light of the need to keep the browser up-to-date in terms of security via the update channel and how is a coding answer suitable to SuperUser? ;)

You tried it? Have you tried the software too? I thought that had some PPC code in it, which is unsupported starting from Lion... any more info on your setup you could share?

It's not that I want Incognito, I'd just like not to show that I visit some medical sites or things like that often to anybody sitting behind me @ Starbucks? Sounds reasonable?

Yes, but the question is: who makes this? DarkByte? I don't trust "DARKbyte". How can I make sure it is not bad code or it will not be "software updated" with bad code some day just before I do Internet banking on Chrome? I shun installing software from unknown sources...

comment Script configuration of Thunderbird profile on multiple OS X machines
I edited the question. I cannot copy entire machines when I could just generate a few text files with IMAP server address, etc... I am surprised there is not admin toolkit from Mozilla? Or, is there?

Thanks! Upvoted. How about configuring user accounts too? I have starting passwords for all accounts (they can change the password later).

I still voted you up in gratitude! ;) [I did specify I was on OSX in the original question...]

Uh. Sorry, man. :(

comment UNIX “find” command, match literal “dot”
I guess if I don't turn on modern REs with -E, the command fails because of this: Obsolete (``basic'') regular expressions differ in several respects. `|' is an ordinary character and there is no equivalent for its functionality. (ref: man re_format on OSX)

I did not know about -or, thanks for teaching me that.

Curiously, the second one works like a charm but the 1st one doesn't? The one without the "-E"? What's wrong?

Hi Dennis. Thanks for answering. This does not work... but if I prefix "-E" and then rephrase to "-regex '.*\.(pdf|png)' it does... why did you escape the pipe? Is this different behaviour due to the platform?
