comment How to get iTunes to keep downloading podcasts even if I don't listen to them right away?
Sorry it took so long, only now was I able to test the script and I'm pleased to say that it works very well. Thanks!

Wow, that definitely looks promising, thanks! It says it's for iTunes 7.7, so I'm not sure if it'll work with iTunes 8, but I'll give it a go.

comment Unable to share screen over iChat
@jtbandes: thanks for the suggestion of LogMeIn, if only so I can remote-control her computer long enough to set up the system preferences/port forwarding.

comment Unable to share screen over iChat
This might work, but I cringe at trying to explain how to configure the router to forward ports to my grandmother. I'll put it in the list of things to try though, thanks :-). What does it mean if this does or doesn't work?

I guess it's par for Apple's course to provide an unwanted "feature" that can't be disabled.

comment What's the point of the 60W Apple MagSafe replacement charger?
I'm also curious what power supply the 13-inch MBP uses. I suspect it's still shipping with the 60W adaptor, which can only serve to further confuse the issue.

I suspected this, which is one of the reasons why I like that I'm leaving my 60W at home and using my new 85W on the road.

comment How can I play music from my iPhone through my computer?
I think that DAAP works through the network, and I was hoping to connect through the cable. Besides, it looks like it requires a jailbroken iPhone.

I don't know if it was the "erase and sync" or the "manually manage music setting" but all the music is now gone from my iPhone.

comment How can I figure out what's slowly eating my HD space?
Thanks for the link - that's pretty much what I've been looking for, a list of potential suspects.

Thanks for the tip on Monolingual! I do realize that shutting off Filevault is supposed to be as simple as unchecking the box; however, it requires substantial free space that I don't have at the moment (and may never have without doing potentially dangerous things like moving my iTunes and/or iPhoto libraries to an external disk).

comment How can I figure out what's slowly eating my HD space?
I really only turned it on when I installed the OS because this is a portable computer and I was worrying about my data being secure. I'm now looking into how to turn it off without messing up iTunes, iPhoto, etc (the libraries of which have untold GBs of music, photos, and movies).

OK, the next time my Mac complains it's almost full, I'll run this and post the results.
