comment Is there a way to make my MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard hibernate with a keyboard shortcut?
@calavera It's definitely related, though the answer to that question was not a keyboard shortcut, so I'm inclined to keep this question open.

comment Why can't I resolve machine names on my LAN to their IP address?
@Cleggy Yeah, with AFP I was wondering if you could see the other computer in Finder automatically. One crazy thing - you mention this is a modem/router, is it possible that each computer is being assigned an external IP?

comment Why can't I resolve machine names on my LAN to their IP address?
@Cleggy Can you see things like iTunes sharing and AFP sharing from one Mac to another? If so, then Bonjour works and I have no idea why appending .local doesn't work. If not, then your router's not passing Bonjour packets for some reason, in which case I would suggest getting a different router, as this one is more trouble than it's worth.

comment I've inadvertently deleted my thunderbird.dmg, does it matter?
@gef Glad to hear it. Might I suggest that you buy an external hard drive and set up Time Machine as soon as possible? It will really save your bacon in the future.

comment How can I show multiple Google calendars in iPhone's calendar app?
Thanks, this works like a charm. The only thing that's annoying is the colors - even though I've changed the ones in Google to match, my iPhone occasionally forgets about a calendar and then assigns it a different color when it learns about it again.

comment No video from Mac Mini, ONLY once OS X has loaded
Try booting your installer DVD. If it works, then something happened to your OS. If not, then it's a hardware problem.

@Moshe Nope, just 256. Look under the "memory" section of the Wikipedia entry.

comment Slow transfer between iMac and Macbook Pro
In the future, I suggest just bypassing your router and connecting the computers directly with an ethernet cable if they're both gigabit. I think you'll be impressed with the speed of the transfer.
