OLD programmer - from the 60s (1960s at least), stumbling aimlessly through xCode, Obj-C, PHP, mySQL, sqLite, (x)html, css, js, bbc, COBOL, exoplanets, slashdot, Apple.

Thanks all, I tried almost all of these and loved DaisyDisk. So that's my choice. I appreciate the help.

Thanks Levi, and welcome to Stack Exchange. Would your du command capture system/app files as well? Thanks

Thanks - I'll look into those two. In the past, I've bought some apps that are supposed to "clean-up" after deleting programs, but I found those rather unreliable. I presume these are better... Have you used either of them?

comment How do I get my computer name to show correctly in the finder?
I believe this is a Yosemite bug. Hopefully, it will get fixed in the 10.10.1 or 2 release.

Thanks to you all. Working through the dev folder is showing that in it's Xcode derived data folder, there is a slew of old project files. Projects long deleted. I will report this as a radar issue.

hmm. while the above shows the results of the shell script, looking at the list through Finder shows a different picture.. App Support: 26GB, Developer: 20GB (still a lot), and Mail: 14GB.. strange

Looks like I need to see what's happening in the dev folders and clean my mail box. @Patrix. Thanks for the focus. If you write the script as an answer, I can probably accept it

comment iPad Air 2 - How to enable device rotation
Thanks Scot. You are right on.. I've added a comment below to state explicitly -- but for the record - as of 8.1, the Control Center has 6 buttons in the center of the panel. Lock/unlock is the last on the right.

That's it! In the center of the Control Center, there are 6 buttons. The lock is the last button on the right. Thanks for helping, and especially the link to apple insider.

comment iPad Air 2 - How to enable device rotation
I didn't vote down, so, I pushed it back up.. I can not find either a switch, or a lock rotation setting. This is my third iPad, so I'm familiar where the settings used to be..
