comment Preventing files from being changed
I cannot use chflags with another user on a directory that belongs to the system. What you mean is that I use chmod to change the user ownership, right? But if the installer has root access it can still remove my file and add another one.

comment Preventing files from being changed
the question is this: because the file is on /Library/LaunchDaemons I have to type sudo chflags uchg filename. If the installation asks for my root password, as it does, isn't this command useless?

comment How to use the aggregate device editor to route a mic channel
professional cardiod mic using a phantom power thru AD converter M-audio firewire solo, delivering 4 track audio. Audio just on channel 3. Audacity can see it. Audition can see it. Quicktime can see it. All 3 record 4 track channel audio when the mic is selected. 4 track audio, audio just on track 3, all other tracks empty. No, dictation cannot see it. Thanks.

comment How to use the aggregate device editor to route a mic channel
the problem is that this device is firewire, not USB and like I said a professional mic that delivers 4 tracks and OSX Dictation does not sees it.

tell that to Yosemite dictation because it is not working with the mic. :( also it is not just a matter of working. Apps that work generate 4 track audio for this mic, what is stupid because the mic is mono.

comment Subtitle editor for OSX?
sorry but Jubler is an abomination as a software in general. Several functions don't work, the interface is non-intuitive. I have tested other software like Subs Factory (piece of crap), Aegisub (has potential but the interface is another abomination and is completely non-intuitive), SubX (horrendous, awful and horrible, no preview, nothing). In other words, none of these work minimally and we are screwed.

comment XCode Hangs at Startup
@bmike - not just it is not stable but it is half cooked. Ten minutes using autolayout for the first time and I have discovered at least 4 bugs and two limitations of poor design and bad testing. Xcode is a pool of half cooked stuff stitched together.

comment XCode Hangs at Startup
@bmike - Xcode is without any doubt the worse piece of software Apple ever wrote. Xcode was always bad but things escalated with Xcode 4. It is a shame that they continue to cram crap to the app instead of fixing errors that are there since Xcode 4. I need to hire someone to invent new profanities to me because I have used my repertoire.

comment Is there a way to know which rule filtered an email?
Yes, I hate spam. Yes, I have an email that I put on the inbox. I quit mail.app. When I run mail.app again the mail is back to the trash.

comment Forcing a script to run in english
Sorry, you were typing your answer at the same time I was changing the question to be generic, when I realized that on kindlegen. Anyway I have this problem with other scripts, so I transformed the question into a generic one. Sorry about that.

comment how to block Adobe, Google and others from installing crap on my Mavericks
wow, that is fantastic but won't the installers enable their jobs again if I need to run them again? (in case of a update, for example)
