comment How to stop 'locate' from using databases for unmounted volumes?
Thanks. Updating the database cleared up the problem, but it's still odd that it happens in the first place.

comment Reserve a static IP address on an older Airport Extreme base station
Thanks, I've tried this, but it doesn't seem to work. This seems to be half of the steps of the reservation: somehow I have to tell the base station that the manual address is valid.

comment Eudora crashes under Snow Leopard when checking mail
@bneely You do realize that Eudora hasn't been supported since 2007, right? So unfortunately the support site is more of an archeological site. :-)

I had already installed that update when I posted the question, so this must be something else.

comment Eudora crashes under Snow Leopard when checking mail
I don't have Application Enhancer installed. When I relaunch Eudora and try to check mail, I get only the identical log that I just posted (modulo the date and PID). No other messages appear in the console associated with that event.

comment Accented characters and terminal redirection
Thanks very much for the explanation, it was very helpful. You were absolutely right about the other editors. Since it seemed very surprising to me that TextWrangler would have problems with this, I investigated further and discovered that the problem was completely silly: I had "Show invisibles" checked in TextWrangler, and when I turned that off the problem disappeared. I'll accept your answer anyway! Thanks.
