comment Lion's Preview regularly hangs when unhiding with open documents
I've noticed that Preview often resumes correctly when not trying to open another document. Anyone tried creating a tool to block open document messages to Preview until the activation message has completed?

If you have macports, you can install sleepwatcher with sudo port install sleepwatcher apparently

If you click though to the macosxhints.com, it discusses remounting the drive on wake, which works unless the drive in encrypted.

None afaik, umount itself usually requires root, but maybe hdiutil handles that.

I would worry that a closed source tool like Little Snitch already ignores traffic it's authors deemed unimportant. I've used Little Snitch's free version for evaluating non-Apple software before though.

comment Are files saved to iCloud via 3rd party applications accessible from icloud.com web interface through browser?
If the client does not encrypt the data, then the data is exposed on the server side, maybe not exposed on disk, but exposed. Rest assured that, if Apple receives a court order for your data, they have the capacity to hand it over unencrypted.

If that's true, why can't Paul Jackson simply play the songs? He's said they reside on his drive.
