comment Connecting a Retina MacBook Pro to a VGA Display?
@levininja the interface technology shouldn't really have any impact on input lag on a display. The dominant factors there are within the display itself (scaler/input chips, and the panel technology). It is possible that on a given display one input might be more or less laggy than another (say if VGA needs to be converted to digital), but that will vary for each display. I'd suggest using the most advanced one you can (probably DisplayPort). If input lag really matters a lot, read some review sites that focus on it.

comment Automator sequential renaming for one file at a time
It would be helpful to get more detail on what exactly your end goal is, and what your script currently does.

comment Using `rsync` as more advanced `cp`
@MaxRied true. It would be more accurate to say that extended attributes are a more general concept, of which resource forks are a Mac/HFS+ specific implementation thereof. But for Mac purposes they can be more or less interchangeable.
