comment How to isolate processes that evoke insane mds_stores disk read activity?
Unfortunately I've not really found an answer I'm happy with, no. We certainly need this kind of a tool.

comment Text to speech service gone and key binding for it not functioning in Yosemite?
It does not. I cannot trigger speech via the keys. I have seen it work on a very rare occasion, but the situation is not reproducible. I was hopeful that someone might have some insights on how to reset these altogether via the shell so as to wipe any kinds of plists or db config entries or such that may be causing this.

@Buscar웃 yes it is working in the actual dialogue box in System Preferences, but not in applications.

comment OS X Mavericks vs Yosemite Performance
I agree. I also hope to see a new HFS+ replacement soon since they're so adamant in their position against ZFS. It would be nice to see an OS release all about stability and optimization. I was so very much hoping that Yosemite would be that release. :'(

Sadly wait until 10.10.4 at this point. The UI issues still are not being addressed fully even after a good amount of reporting.

Still having serious UI performance issues even in 10.10.2 and .3. It seems that there are some Window Manager issues that they have still not sorted out since the early developer previews and reporting has not resolved it yet. Sadly even with a beefy machine I have to run with high contrast mode to get the responsiveness I was getting with Mavericks.

While this is really nice on the eyes, it unfortunately does not blank out the top address bar for instant typing as one would expect. This focus on the address bar for immediate data entry would seem pretty important.

comment Maximum memory config for Mac Pro 5,1 (mid 2010)?
Well, let's say this scenario: Say I have 8 DIMMs; two are 16GB DIMMs and the rest are 4GB. What would the order need to be in order for that to properly work? I believe that I did as you note above, but it failed and so I'd like to get more specific.

Thanks for the verification. Do you know anything regarding the usage of 16GB DIMMs on this unit? Sure would be nice to max this booger out.

This is interesting, I am doing that presently. Since it was not giving me proper information at first, ie missing DIMMs, I was not getting the complete picture from the Memory Slot Utility. After moving the DIMMs about, I'm getting some different results now and it appears that I'm close to a "proper" configuration. I'm curious, are you seeing anything about 16GB DIMMs anywhere?
