comment How do I reset the scrollback in the terminal via a shell command?
@ZevEisenberg Well, I confirm copy-pasting and executing the osascript line works fine under OS X 10.6.8 and 10.9.2, with the built-in Terminal and bash 4.2. Could you please give more information for reproducing?

@ZevEisenberg Are you sure you did alias clear in the same session as calling it? Otherwise, if you invoke clear later on, you will call the builtin clear. You can check that by typing alias clear. If it tells you alias: clear: not found, then you were calling the builtin :)

comment What hidden features have you found in iOS 6?
Wow, great, thanks! I am intrigued by the “encrypted” mention on your mail, though. What trickery is this?

Oops, @LauriRanta is absolutely right regarding the position of the -boolean flag! Lauri, would you prefer to edit my answer (I don't know if it brings you any reputation)? You're also absolutely welcome to write your own answer :)

@KMC Ok, what about the -boolean version? Sorry, I have no 10.8 system on which to test.

comment Stop menu closing when clicked
Oh, interesting. Testing on 10.6: Finder and iTunes indeed present this behavior, but iCal, Mail, Safari don't…

comment Stop menu closing when clicked
What do you call a “child popout menu” exactly? If it's a submenu, clicking it should simply do nothing, not close the menu.

comment Is there anything special about the “Applications” folder?
There are actually some applications that require that path. MAMP is the first one that comes to my mind, but I have seen some others that complain about not finding some resource if you place them in the Utilities folder, for example.
