You should post your update as an answer and accept that.

comment What OS X tweaks, hacks, or modifications couldn't you live without?
I use three finger click (middle click) and used to use swipe (change spaces) and those worked very well... but I had to adjust the sensitivity first. I also love the realtime display of where your fingers are.

@patrix: good suggestion. I have FireBug installed, maybe that's what's causing it.

comment How can you email an address book group to another Mac user?
The notes trick is a great idea -- this is a very small list, it's actually used for a family member to send updates to family and friends about upcoming surgery, so a mailing list is overkill. Heck I am about to just grab the emails out of the VCF with a regex because I need the list ASAP. But I wanted to know how to do this for future reference.

comment Mystery computer appearing in the Finder's source list
That's really odd. If you disable Apple File Sharing/ Windows File Sharing, does the otseeley-remote in the sidebar go away?

comment Lots of inactive memory after watching HD/DVD movies
I am unable to reproduce the behavior you're seeing... I'm on 10.6 however. It's possible this is a 10.7 issue, but I don't have Lion yet so I can't test that.
