To proper logging events from sshd you should not set -d swiches, since this is reserved for debugging, but you should user sshd_config (not sure where is located in OSX). In sshd_config, there is option LogLevel, which you can adjust to your needs, basically the most verbose level is DEBUG3, which gives you a lot of information helpful for debugging.

Of course, no ipv6 connections will come in through your ethernet card if ...

Same. I also like having auto correct, but sometimes I'm trying to write a word spelt incorrectly on purpose. Pressing 'Space Bar' will correct your word. If you press 'UP' on your directions, it will cancel auto-correct. If you press 'Down' it will let you cycle the choices, then hit 'Space Bar' when you've selected the word you want.

First things, power on with the space key pressed to eject the CD if needed.

That jitter is pure software. The CSS/javascript are not executing fast enough to prevent a redraw from being noticeable. You could try reducing the load on the CPU by quitting other apps or just run some instruments on the pages where you see jitter and either block the js that is slow or decide to edit your text elsewhere and then copy/paste it to avoid ...

Since your drivers don't include any special one, it's possible from the RAM. If the RAM doesn't reliable, sometimes it will corruption of kernel data then cause these type of issue as well. I had some experience with no stable RAM rather than fault RAM.

To put it simply: yes, using the installer provided by the App Store is sufficient. Keep in mind that Apple develops and designs these installers specifically so that users, like you, can update to the newest system. All you need to do is click the download button and follow the onscreen instructions to update. There is always a risk factor of something ...

I had a big issue with the feeling something was eating storage in my macbook. My folder com.apple.coresymbolicationd was 90 GB and growing and it was filling the hard drive to death. After finding it with Daisy Disk (running a scan as administrator) I've deleted all "grow" files in the "com.apple.coresymbolicationd" and I've cleared 90 GB of storage space. ...

The problem is execution context and mach bootstrap in OS X (more info on Apple documentation worth reading). You need to simulate execution from proper context. In OS X it's done using launchctl bsexec command. From TheDarkKnight's answer to Starting/stopping a launchd agent for all users with GUI sessions you have: Unload Agents #!/bin/bash for id in ...

I tried this before reading this question. Specifically, I have two drives, SSDs sitting on PCI cards, each running its own OS. I had set up iTunes music collection to be on a standard drive, but to open when running either OS. After running it under ML, it no longer worked under SL. So Nick's hunch seem correct.

This is really nice and powerful Git/Mercurial client. I tried many GUI applications and only SourceTree satisfied me. Application package already has builtin Git and Mercurial. At last, you may ...
