That symbol means your drive has crashed - or at least the system can no longer "see" the drive. Do you have an install disk to boot from? If you do, use that, go into Disk Util and see if you can access your drive from there.

They are exactly the same. ⌘ CMD+. sends SIGINT just like ⌃ CTRL+c. I've checked this with this python script: #!/usr/bin/env python import signal import sys def signal_handler(signal, frame): print('You pressed Ctrl+C!') sys.exit(0) signal.signal(signal.SIGINT, signal_handler) print('Press Ctrl+C') signal.pause() It's made this way for backward ...

Cmd ⌘ ` Cmd ⌘ Shift ⇧ ` to go the other way. Left of z on a UK keyboard [non-shifted ~ ] BTW, specifically in Chrome, but no other app I know of on Mac, Cmd ⌘ (number) will select individual tabs on the frontmost window.
