comment What external IR receivers are there for Mac?
@Moshe Then I recommend the slide advancer. Some of the better ones even have built-in slide counters and laser pointers.

comment How can I check for available entropy?
@R.M True, I was thinking more in terms of whether or not a call to /dev/random would block than the quality of the entropy

comment Lion Recovery with a Disk Wipe
I'd be surprised if the recovery partition could wipe the entire disk. It might be able to wipe the Lion partition, and that might be enough for the OP. I'll have to play around with this.

comment Music disappears from iPod Classic after disconnecting from computer
@caesarsgrunt I think Apple's site bases the warranty off of when the iPhone was sold to the reseller, but I'd imagine they'd honor a replacement if you had a receipt. Good luck!

comment Is there an app to quickly download and install a list of non-App Store apps?
Trying it out now. Seems to be a pretty good app, but I don't know about paying $20 for it, much less $20/year

comment Music disappears from iPod Classic after disconnecting from computer
@caesarsgrunt I'm pretty sure any store will do. If you bought directly from Apple you don't even need a receipt - they can just look up the date of purchase on their system.

comment Copying the current directory's path to the clipboard
@bmike Yeah, I don't use it much, but it was my first thought when I read this question (after discovering that Finder indeed does not have this functionality built-in by default). It has the advantage that DTerm is a general-purpose tool and not something that needs to be installed or set up for this specific purpose.

posd | pbcopy sounds like it would work. The rest seems nice to have (though won't open . work instead of fdc?)

comment Copying the current directory's path to the clipboard
@AdamEberbach I disagree, the question you linked is about starting a Terminal instance at the current Finder path, this is about simply getting the path

@HerrKaleun If you're referring to the contest, it's still not certain I've won one. They only have 5 to give out for level 3, and there are 9 people in it. But thanks anyway - I hope I do win!
