comment How can I unpack a .deb on Mac OS X without installing it?
All I know is, I followed the Internet's instructions to uninstall v3 and then installed v4, and now I can only get to it via the path I posted. Like I said, I think there is an optional install in prefs that puts all XCode's stuff in /usr/bin, but it's optional.

comment Is there any way to run PowerPC applications on Mountain Lion (Not installing-just opening from a CD)
There is no difference whether your application runs from the CD or otherwise. The thread linked is your best resource.

comment How can I unpack a .deb on Mac OS X without installing it?
ar comes from XCode (unless you installed it with MacPorts/Homebrew/etc), but XCode 4 comes from the App Store and therefore doesn't install anything in /usr/bin by default. I think you can change it from preferences, but that's the default.

Users of XCode 4 can run /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/ar.

comment “df” command making network requests?
If something is calling df, then probably a list of running programs is relevant. Also, it is prob a good idea to reboot and see if it runs before you launch any programs.

comment Where can I find statistics on download amount on OSX?
A search for bandwidth on the App Store shows as the the top result a free app called Bandwidth+ that sounds like it'll do about what you want.

comment Why does the wireless disconnect when cooking?
1) It appears from Wikipedia that 802.11g is in the same 2.4GHz band; you might mention that. 2) How does 802.11n fit into things? 3) You sorta say, but I can't tell: does the microwave only interfere when it's on, or does it interfere all the time?
