comment Time Machine backup is slow. How can I speed it up?
It's no surprised that this would improve speed - you started again from scratch. Was the drive previously pretty full? How big is your TM drive compared to the total size of all the disks its backing up? I'd surmise that it was probably spending a ton of time 'thinning', which is throwing out in-between versions of files to make more room for newer versions. Have a look at 'Console' and put 'backupd' in the Search box. Scroll back to before you formatted.. any clues?

comment How to perform cleanup duties on OS X?
@Alex, yes it is similar to 'CHKDSK /F' but also does the equivalent of a Windows 'Repair' operation on system folders.

A lot of the scripts that Onyx fires up are run by Mac OS X itself if you reboot occasionally.

comment One Note alternative for Mac?
Things is really a (very, very pretty) to-do list rather than a freeform note-capturing app.

comment Cannot empty trash after deleting .dmg
I can recommend the 'How To' videos of the common Mac features at apple.com/findouthow/mac plus time spent in a larger Apple Store that has seminars is worth it.

comment Which OS X Applications do you find indispensable?
Evernote looks like such a good alternative, but it doesn't seem to have specific To Do functions and the iPhone version is a bit Fisher Price. Things does exactly what it says it does, reliably and professionally, but cloud sync is waaaaay overdue.

comment Which OS X Applications do you find indispensable?
Excel is hugely more powerful (Pivot tables for a start), but it, and it's output, is nowhere near as pretty as Numbers.

comment How do I take a screenshot on my Mac?
You can alter the place that screenshots get saved using some of the populate hidden-tweaks apps like 'secrets', or use the Terminal to execute this command: defaults write com.apple.screencapture location -path <full path to the location>, e.g. /Users/YourName/Screenshots
