Years of administrating FreeBSD and Linux servers and workstations gave good understanding of UNIX underpins of Mac OS X. Daily usage for work and pleasure gives experience from user point of view.

comment Mac Mini 2011 - monitor wakes up messed up
I see it aswell on my MacBook Pro 2013 on 10.9.1. Monitor1 miniDP->DVI and Monitor2 via miniDP->DP cable. Regardless which monitor is primary or if only Monitor1 is connected - waking from "amber led" results in scrambled display for 20 secs, after that it becomes OK. Also blanking display while scrambled, but wake again before "amber led", the screen becomes OK. None of this happen to Monitor2 even if using the same DVI adapter. Monitor1 only has DVI so can't test reverse cabling.

comment iMovie '11 AVCHD videos
Thanks. In the meantime I've found out that, yes, it would be better to cash out for bigger HDD. So that I can Archive my Camcoder and when I'm ready to use some footage, import it in Full Quality. When I'm done with the footage, remove it, retaining the archive. This way I save space on HDD, but can work fast in full quality.

comment Time Machine keeps excluding my hard drive
This is exactly what I ended up doing (forgot to update this question). Before reformat, I used TM browser to delete all backups of the previous Media to free up disk space. Now backups have been running OK for a while.

comment CNET on Mac - page not found
Testing with Crome it worked. Thank you. I don't visit CNET that often, but now at least I know how to access it when I really need some article. Thanks.

comment Copying Time Machine backup, destination takes more than original size, are hardlinks being expanded?
I have tried to copy (non-supported) TM volumes, but it always refused to continue to use the new drive. Every time I have resorted to just doing full backup to new drive and holding on to my old drive for a while, until sufficient history has built up on new drive (a week or two).
