comment What Window Management Options exist for OS X?
It's a subtle distinction. In Linux-style alt-dragging, alt-dragging in, for example, the upper-left quadrant of the window would change the coordinates of the upper left corner (demo), whereas in Flexiglass it changes the lower right corner.

comment How does Mountain Lion set the default text editor for the “open -t” terminal command?
Just a heads up, you can also achieve this by running "Install Command Line Tools" from TextWrangler's application menu. It'll install an edit command, which does what your alias does, and in addition has a bunch of command line options.

revised Copy and Cut sometimes don't work
Corrected command-line commands - IMHO non-trivial because many readers copy and paste commands.

comment Copy and Cut sometimes don't work
This worked for me on Mountain Lion (10.8.5). I believe this answer deserves more attention. It's worth emphasizing that applications need to be restarted individually - it may be easiest to restart with the "Reopen windows..." option on.

comment iMessage entries appearing in wrong order
I can confirm this is still happening as of OS X 10.8.5, with messages sent from iOS 7.0.4. For example, today one conversation shows as Sent 2, Sent 1, Received 1. The messages were about 40 minutes apart, and with someone in the same time zone. Apple squashed Messages out-of-order bugs in 10.8.3 and 10.8.4, but apparently further bugs persist.

The ol' Cmd-drag can (re)move the built-in icons up there.

comment Editing System/Library files with Property List Editor (PLE)
Now that Property List Editor is part of Xcode, the easier solution may be to change ownership of the .plist and containing directory to your user account temporarily while you edit the file, then change back. I'm surprised Apple didn't seem to think of this.

comment Is there an extension to give Safari the same multiple search engine functionality as Chrome?
I've found Apple neglects their Extensions (and Dashboard Widgets) pages, unfortunately. Lots of 404s, infrequent culling of dead projects, and no built-in search. I agree @robmathers' answer hits the nail on the head, and particularly beats telling folks to Google it.

A bit wordy, but good question.

comment Can Messages display the timestamp of every incoming message?
iOS 7, which is now in the wild, can indeed show timestamps for every message. Just slide your finger right to left in a conversation. (I literally yelled "finally!" while sitting at my desk when I read about this.)

comment Can all Mac software update with one click?
I use a similar meta-updater called AppFresh with some success, although the app itself hasn't been updated since Aug 2012 and there's no sign of ongoing development.

comment Why does my 3TB Seagate HD keep formatting as a Logical Volume Group
Are you somehow trying to make a Fusion drive? Can you clarify "it changes it"? A screenshot may help.

They are not on my hard drive anywhere (I've looked thoroughly). They only exist on my iPhone.
