comment Spotlight not connecting to internet
@codetheweb: The results of the command shows that the Spotlight helper processes do seem to be running (which is normal). You could possibly try to launchctl unload then launchctl load each of those processes which would essentially restart them. Also, which country are you in? The reason I ask is that can affect the ability of Spotlight to do internet searches.

comment OS 10.10 not connecting through proxy specified by its Internet name
Normally a proxy running on port 8080 (https) would be either a SOCKS Proxy or a Secure Web Proxy. Web Proxy is usually run on port 80 and is not secure (http vs https), so you might try one of the other configurations. Also try resetting the dns cache for your machine in Terminal.app: sudo discoveryutil mdnsflushcache, and report back with any error messages from the log files...

Maybe post the details of your configuration, such as how the proxy is setup, what your method of authentication is, etc. Without more info it's anyone's guess what the problem might be. Also check in Console.app or ~/Library/Logs/ for related error messages.

@Ladmerc, it sounds like a problem with the dns of hostname perhaps; what happens when you try the ip that was output from nslookup? If you're still having problems I would inform the administrators that the hostname isn''t working properly.

@Rainer: Thanks for the recommendation; do all non-Apple SSDs have that issue with TRIM not working, and what (if any) resolution is there to it?

Use the < Go Back button in XCode, it should take you right to it.

comment How to display project name in minimized Xcode?
I suppose you could click on the project name in the Project Navigator before minimizing it so it shows it in the dock, or create a script that does it for you.

comment Keys and mouse randomly stop working briefly
Perhaps include more log information before and after the IOHIDSystem: postEvent LLEventQueue overflow event; that's really the only way better understand what might be happening.
