comment How to properly setup a reliable roaming WiFi with Airport Base Stations and an existing router
I agree about the router. Concerning the SSIDs the problem here is the reluctance of the users to setup each new device 5 times (10 if the 5GHz SSIDS are separated). In this situation I don't do the maintenance and the users want to be able to manage their devices on their own. There are few users but they tend to have at least 2 devices. So far the network works well for everyone on 1 SSID, more so since all computers, phones and other multimedia devices have been kept up to date or replaced. Otherwise if all devices were managed through profiles your solution would be the right one.

comment Does FileVault 2 interfere with TRIM when using an SSD?
@lid The difference between TRIM enabled operations and non TRIM operations is that the OS will notify the SSD about stale data at given adresses. Maybe your assumptions on FileVault 2 are incorrect. FileVault 2 works above the low level IO operations, also FileVault frees data on deletion (it doesn't encrypt empty disk space). So whenever an address space is freed wherever it's FileVault 2 enabled or not the OS will notify the SSD about stale data at the freed address and the TRIM operations will happen the same way they would without FileVault 2.

iPhoto was regularly updated and from time to time re-scaning pictures for faces would bring more faces. I'm looking for a way to rescan all older pictures from time to time to detect more faces when Photos is updated.
