comment External HD doesn't mount when USB plugged in (Lion)
Poop! Do you get any mention of it in the syslogs? Or anything coming up to say it's not detected? I won't alarm you, but I've had this issue before and it was basically an early warning sign of disk issues, when you next get it to show do a First Aid check in Disk Utility.

It should be port 5900 rather than 5800, that might be catching you out.

comment What does the plus sign next to the price of an app in the App Store mean?
In-App purchases are considered extras and are 'less important' than conveying that the app itself is a universal binary.

comment What does FreeMemory actually do?
the similarities are why I liked it, you get to see how OS X handles under limited memory circumstances more readily via iOS.

Note, the App is specifically OS X rather than iOS, but I like the answer.
