comment Why is GnuPG asking for my passcode only when signing?
Yes I am merely pointing out that it must have been my installation process that resulted in the files not being in the state we expect, because homebrew does not run with root privileges and I never ran gpg as root, therefore any file owned by root must have been dumped in by GPGTools. Indeed I think GPGTools provides gpg-agent and other executables inside of its application bundle which it runs, at least it seems that way from htop

And thanks for cleaning up my question :)

@SEJPM OK that makes sense, it's still not clear to me that this is the intended default behavior though.

comment Why is GnuPG asking for my passcode only when signing?
~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf is an empty file owned by root and thus read-only. It was likely overwritten by the GPGTools installer program or something. I wonder if it is just better for me to remove the command line gpg and only use GPGTools because of these config file conflicts.

comment Why is my Seagate USB 3.0 drive showing corrupted data when plugged as an internal SATA drive?
By "simply can't" I take it that what you mean by this is that this translation being done may be proprietary/not-standard/rare and that an appropriate driver doesn't exist? I am now only able to continue to use my newly liberated Seagate drive with the original USB3 board. This is annoying because I still can't mount it inside my desktop because of the extra length of this adapter board. So at some point I have to copy data off of it and place it back onto it after reformatting it.

comment View incremental diffs of my revisions to files using Dropbox
@ps_ttf did you see my answer? Revisions works (if you are on OS X) and has great UX. Pretty sure it uses this very API.

comment Why very few modern motherboards are equipped with TPM?
Just to note. I am looking over my new ASUS X99 Sabertooth motherboard, it has a TPM header on it. I ended up here because I was wondering what I could use it for. So... some consumer systems do have this feature.

comment How to *actually* make a multi USB bootable disk in a reliable way. Without ruining its USB mass storage capability
Okay. Sorry that I got a bit frustrated. I'd delete this whole thing, but... my Question (it's actually simply a rant) got two upvotes... And your point is fair about how this isn't really a legitimate answer. I guess the right thing to do is to combine my question and answer and shorten it and maybe add it as an answer to the other topic which has been linked. But I've solved my own problem for now, and I can't justify spending more time on this stuff now.

comment How to *actually* make a multi USB bootable disk in a reliable way. Without ruining its USB mass storage capability
The answer that pointed to Easy2Boot that you linked was mis-typed, and also wasn't a link. In fact I just went in there and edited it so it is a better answer... Either way I'm more or less happy with my experience with E2B so far. So this question is answered now. Y'all can delete it if you want, I don't really care.

I don't really understand why this is a bad answer but I've edited it some to show that it isn't a work-in-progress answer anymore. BTW I asked the question. I should be able to provide an answer to my own question...

comment Safari version of Chrome's ability to middle-click back button?
Dunno why it doesnt work for you, because im pretty sure it's supposed to work and has for six years: lifehacker.com/5585192/…. Well, thanks, you actually found a partial answer! Cmd+Click on it works, the only bummer is it doesnt bring back the original history chain like Chrome does. But it's still way better than nothing.

Chrome lets you "bifurcate" or clone a browsing timeline by middle clicking back to keep your current page undisturbed while letting you browse backward in a new tab.

comment AHK key combo, or an application which is capable of changing screen resolutions, in windows 7
well i have that gist where ive stashed my AHK script now. For everything I do outside of windows the configuration files (and notes which go in as comments all over the place) get checked into git.

comment AHK key combo, or an application which is capable of changing screen resolutions, in windows 7
Yep I'm done now and it works great! link to my ahk nircmd is great, I do recall using it in the past to have a command i can run to shut off monitors from the software side without having to worry about whether a timeout assertion was set by a media player application or somesuch. Naturally that knowhow was lost to me upon nuking that particular windows installation.

Still working on this, AHK script language is a really frustrating language, but I will be able to get a really usable message box or toggle interface for my custom resolutions so I think I'll be very happy very soon

comment Scroll shell output with mouse in tmux
I'm now just sort of toying with the idea of making mousewheel on pane border do something interesting. Probably what I'll do is not map wheel on border but map it to cycle the tmux windows when done over the statusline.
