comment What is the difference between iTerm2 and Terminal?
@daviesgeek It will avoid confusion, the two are totally different products, iTerm is pretty much abandoned at this point, while iTerm2 is in very active development.

Make sure you label this as iTerm2 a different development altogether.

comment How can I export an MS Outlook .pst file to Apple Mail?
+1 - This is reasonably simple to do and complete. It doesn't hurt that it's free too.

-1 - Limited and not free, just go the IMAP route.

comment Is it possible to duplicate images in LittleSnapper?
That's right. From an architectural point of view, it was a bad decision, and it definitely won't be something they can fix quickly/easily, so they will be resistant without a lot of users asking for a change. It may turn out that the .lslibrary is in a known (ie. non-proprietory) format, such as a coredata table, or some other third party format, in which case it would be possible to pull all the images out and process them normally. If they've made their own format you'll have to wait on them.

comment What is the safest way to triple boot Macbook Pro?
@shan23 refit is the way to go if you want full native boot, but you'll only need that for Games or other VERY resource heavy apps.

comment Emacs Ctrl-x ctrl-s command not working in Terminal.app
@Bret Moore, it's certainly a bit unusual, by new account, I assume you mean a new account on the Mac? ... anyway, C-s shortcut is definitely overridden by something above the scope of the Terminal.app, so changing the Terminal settings / plists, won't have any affect on it. Presumably you've checked global keyboard settings as suggested by Sylvain Defresne, the only other thing I could suggest is to make sure you don't have a third party app installed which is capturing the C-s shortcut, QuickSilver for example.

comment Using screencapture when remotely logged in to a headless mac via ssh
I'll give it a go. BTW, one thing I already tried, which I should record here: using osascript to send the Cmd-Shift-3 screen capture shortcut, it didn't work.

comment Which OS X Applications do you find indispensable?
I better throw cocoa Emacs.app in here for good measure, this or MacVim are where you go when you are finished with toy editors. (Emacs.app is my preference, however I have it heavily customized from the default, and looks a lot like my ideal version of TextMate now.)

Lion's new Mail.app now beats the pants off Thunderbird, IMO.

comment Emacs Ctrl-x ctrl-s command not working in Terminal.app
If you do -M-x describe-key and do C-s (ie. I-search) does it work? It certainly sounds like something is bound to C-s at a higher level than the Terminal.app.

comment Emacs Ctrl-x ctrl-s command not working in Terminal.app
@Bret Moore - what are the differences between the two Macs and their Terminal configs? As a side note, have you tried using iTerm2.app instead (it's a general improvement over Terminal.app and worth using anyway.)

comment Is there any free/paid Windows emulator for Mac OS X?
@Umesh Kacha - s-unno.com domain doesn't resolve for me, so I can't see it. I'd probably recommend that you try VirtualBox if you haven't already. If that doesn't work you can try Parallels or VMWare (they will all require you to install Windows into a virtual machine.) - Parallels and VMWare are commercial solutions, so try your luck with VirtualBox first.

@Kyle - "not advised", but possible right? It is only a drive after all.
