A Sonos requires that shared libraries are accessed over CIFS/SMB. From your path it looks like this link is for a share over AFP. Can you find a link for the SMB share from the airport extreme ?

I also have no idea about Macbook login password, and finally I find an article from the smartkey password recovery software about how to reset Mac login password and it is helpful to me. Maybe you can read it as well.

Regardless of the state of the Mac, holding down the power button will always kill it and allow you to cold boot. Make sure you're holding the power button down long enough—hold it down longer than you think is necessary.

What happens if you shut it down & restart just holding onto the option key? That should give you the “Startup Manager” screen which will let you choose a startup disk; more details from Apple’s site. Also if you have a USB drive—thumb drive or other kind of drive—you might be able to boot from that to get some kind of disk repair to happen. When you ...

I got this same error today and found out that iMovie and iPhoto are connected to my original @me.com apple id (from years ago). I now use a different email with app store. You have to log out of the app store with your current apple id and log in with your original (older) id (assuming that you have/had one).

My mid-2011 mb air supports Bluetooth LE and Bluetooth 4, yet apple has prescribed that it shall not support handoff. The LMP Version required for handoff, 0x6, is also supported. Why apple decided to not include support for handoff/continuity our mb air models when we have the hardware in place to run it needs further explanation from apple.

BusyCal does include ToDo List capability with multiple lists, which can be associated with specific calendars. Can include tags, alarms, priority, notes, etc. One of my favourite things about BusyCal is that it ...

I am not sure how we can know this for sure, but I believe that after fully-charged, it is indeed "bypassed". Of course after if drops power it could be charging it back up a little bit, but I have never seen that happen. At least not if judging from the LED indicator on the cable, which remains green at all times

I'm not familiar with Sunrise so I'm not sure what your objection is. I assume it's just that it doesn't support to-dos? Fantastical is a calendar app that supports both events/appointments and todos.

I've had this same exact issue with a Bluetooth apple magic mouse. The culprit for me was the rechargeable batteries that I was using. Before I changed the batteries it would constantly lose connectivity and then connect again a few seconds later. It was very frustrating. Did your keyboard and touchpad come with any drivers? If so are the up to date?

I chose the 4GB version and used the extra $$$ for more storage. I replace my laptop every year or every other year (Apple's computers hold their value and I usually resell them for 75% to 80% of what I originally paid). So if the 4GB RAM became limiting, I would just deal with it until the following year.

No, Apple provides no official way of doing this. If you really need to, you could use Option 3 listed in the tutorial you linked to, the Apple Digital AV Adapter, combined with some sort of external video capture device for you Mac like the Elgato Game Capture HD Game Recorder.
