I wonder if now we can get email notifications partially thanks to my ranting. And flair rocks! :D

comment How to launch Google Drive in another user's session?
@Buscar웃 what you mean? Using just 1 mac user-account?! I can't connect to a second drive account without disconnecting the first here.

comment How to launch Google Drive in another user's session?
@Buscar웃 think different, huh? I just want to keep my work and home google drive in sync with my personal computer. But I could as well simply want to run 2 simultaneous GUI applications which have some useful background process but no command line version. IMHO, "why is doing such thing so complicated?" would be a much better question.

comment How to launch a GUI application in another user's graphical session?
Hoping to achieve exactly what says in the title: launch a gui application in another user's session. "Bonus points" if the other user doesn't need to be logged in or if it can be logged in programmatically. In specific, I want multiple google drive. It works if I simply log in manually and it's under that user's Login Items on System Preferences. A trampoline process wouldn't bring the bonus points, but if that's the only way, what is precisely the Apple engineers recommendation against it? I thought it would be precisely for doing such simple hack scripts! :P

Could you provide a simple script, such as in TJ's answer there, but one that works? Or is it just too complex for such a thing?

comment How can I get Homebrew working under Mavericks?
"Which change made it work?". The answer is within your question. You had errors related to bad permissions at /usr/local/Library/Homebrew/.... Then you deleted that folder per your find thus "fixing" the errors. You should accept Mr ghoppe's awesome answer.

For removing all traces, consider this newer script (referenced on the "official" link there): gist.github.com/SteveBenner/11254428

@Mark op did it after the advice, edited the question and that yielded to the much formidable answer by ghoppe. This was a very valid advice, even if not properly updated in response. It got bad downvote there by whoever.

It does open the application as you say, but it opens it in the current user session, and not in the other user's session as asked.

comment Restart OS X GUI
Much related: apple.stackexchange.com/questions/103610/… - also, I've been using killall since before this question with no problems. It kills WindowServer only, and nothing else. But I use it with default TERM sign, which means simply write it without -HUD.

comment Using Webcam as Remote Security Cam
@jakev I was going to advise the freebie iSentry but that onCue you've forgot to actually link is by far the best one! It even works for free (I think) except there is a message you have to press "ok" to keep recording... I haven't bothered too much as I quickly shoved the U$30 which I think is worth it.
