Titled as a Network Engineer, but my minor is in Software Engineering. I've used a myriad of computing platforms to include Linux, UNIX, Mac, PC, Commodore, Amiga, and 286/386/486s. My choice of everyday machines is Mac because it offers a good balance between UNIX power and Windows usability. I am NOT an Apple fanboy. Bottom line, I use Adobe software and refuse to run a Windows environment. Mac is the best balance between the two to accomplish my goals.

Server side, all Linux/UNIX. In my mind it can be beat for performance, scalability, and security.

comment What caused my Mac OS X Lion Screen Savers and Desktop Pictures to go missing?
Clean install of Lion is somewhat of a red herring anyway. Unless of course you purchased the USB flash drive media. Otherwise all installs of Lion are just in place upgrades to Snow Leopard, which does include these folders. I can hardly imagine these are removed on purpose simply by installing Lion. This is definitely an interesting one. I'm not upgrading to Lion any time soon. Having watched Lion grow from the Developer side, I will wait until all of the energy/temp concerns have been fully ironed out on all platforms before upgrading. At any rate, at least your problem is solved!

comment MacBook Pro 13" Snow Leopard: WiFi suddenly stopped working
As a general note, if you run into Wireless issues on Mac, open your terminal and type ifconfig -a. You should see en0 and en1, and possibly others. But the important part is that en0 is your wired adapter and en1 is your wireless. If it doesn't show up your Airport may be turned off.

comment Where is MYSQL installed on Mac?
+1 for it not being on your path. Try typing "echo $PATH" on your terminal to see if /usr/local/mysql/bin is on the path. Additionally, on the terminal, you can type "which mysql". If that returns nothing your environment is not seeing your MySQL installation.
