comment Missing icons in apps menu
You might try Disk Utilities/Repair Disk Permissions, in case somehow the permissions on the graphics files are wrong.

I would wonder about hardware failure (perhaps heat-related?)

comment Aramaic view in Google Chrome
I don't understand either. There isn't an issue of supporting a particular language. There's an issue of supporting RTL languages, which Os X does, and of course having fonts with Syriac characters. My new best guess is that he is visiting a web page with a particular encoding which was not auto-detected by his Mac browser, but is by IE or whatever he is using on the Dark Side.

OS X supports Hebrew and Arabic. Perhaps you mean there is no Syriac keyboard?

comment iTunes put a “1” at the end of many of my song and video titles. How can I fix this?
Another approach would be to use the Find Duplicates within iTunes.

comment Mountain Lion way to QuickLook folders
I don't seem to have been clear. Once upon a time, when you did Quick Look on a folder, a list of the contents came up in the QuickView. So you didn't need to click to open the folder for an idea what was in it. I don't really need the icons bigger in the existing window. I can just get better glasses. :-)

comment Mountain Lion way to QuickLook folders
@Borderline, as I wrote, this does not appear to work in either Lion or Mountain Lion. I'll try again—but do you have it working on one of these systems?

comment moving the downloads folder inside another folder (10.8.2)
Incidentally, when I did this, I then placed a symbolic link to the new location back as ~/Downloads. This makes the change transparent to all my apps and I don't have to change preferences all over.

@Slevin: Toad Data Modeler. Very powerful. Cranky interface. Internal documentation of scripting language mostly in Czech.
