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.

comment APPLE SSD SM0512F Media Equivalent
@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?

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.

comment Where is the Autocorrect dictionary file for Outlook 2015 stored in OS X Yosemite?
You might try looking in the main application bundle Microsoft Outlook.app/Contents/Resources/AutoCorrect/. The filenames are Default ACL [English], etc. — however, they might not be (easily) editable.

@unmircea, You could possibly try this.

comment My Files are all classified as “Other”
One more thing you might not be aware of is that after you control-click Show All and the menu appears you can press the Option key which will allow you to Sort By rather than Arrange By. Pressing Option within Finder menus has this behavior in many places (eg. File > Save would become Save as...).

comment My Files are all classified as “Other”
@vihan1086, Sure I'd be happy to write that up as an answer. For your PDF documents you would normally find them under Kind, but you can also sort by multiple criteria. For example you could specify sort by Kind, and Tag with Image or PDF — hope that makes sense.

comment Is it possible to wipe an entire iCloud Photo Library?
I just can't fathom why they wouldn't have been able to delete all of the photos as you wanted. Do they not have control of their own servers? If there were something on their servers that urgently needed to be removed they might not even be capable of doing it — that's not very reassuring.

@vihan1086, It looks like you've got your view options set to show only tags — specifically other. In the right hand corner of the All My Files window Control-Click the text that reads Show All (1,950). You should then see a menu which lets to Arrange or Sort by Name, Kind, etc.
