comment How to extract contacts from Mail.app
@Buscar웃 The informations she gave are being processed. They said it may take several days. The person who took control of her account is most probably actually in Bamako (Mali), and he has tried the standard Western Union scam on her contacts. I hope she will gain access to her account in the near future.

@dwightk Thanks I didn't know this window. It may be enough if her contact list is short.

comment Are the OSX Mavericks tags visible from the command line?
@markvgti Then take one Orange file that is found with this command and one that is not, and find the differences with xattr or mdls ?

comment While moving files in Finder, how to prevent the files from hiding the target folder?
Doesn't work when the files and the target folder are in the same folder. But apparently if you can trick Finder in doing this by dragging the files over the parent column folder (if any), and drag it back on the target folder. Even like this it's not really reliable. I think it's most probably a bug in Finder.

comment Font smoothing is wrong after Mavericks update on MacBook Pro with high-res display (not retina)
The problem is that there is sub pixel AA in all of your examples, except for the text light/default - but I presume that you did this in Photoshop or something, so that's expected. But some screenshots provided in the question miss sub pixel AA.

Notice that there is sub pixel antialiasing in ML and no sub pixel antialiasing in MV on the screenshots in the question. Sub pixel AA makes a big difference in legibility.

comment How to unmount a locked volume?
@patrix I doubt every Mac user is going to launch a terminal and begin typing in it. Are non technical users forced to do a force eject and possibly corrupt data on the volume ?
