comment How can I make rows and columns for Spaces in Lion?
This frustrated me too, because I also had 9 spaces, arranged in a 3x3 grid. I still have my 10.6 iMac that way, and getting used to the new version has taken some time. Actually, I still get lost sometimes, a problem I never used to have...

comment Why does Microsoft Word need to allow incoming network connections?
@Sheldon he's right. If you don't know what it's for or why it's required, deny it. That's safe computing practices.

comment Why does Microsoft Word need to allow incoming network connections?
Zenklys, @Gerry is correct. If, as you said, "Microsoft send us a stream of data", and that's in response to Word contacting Microsoft's servers to ask for that data, then when Word opens the connection is gets TCP state ESTABLISHED, which means that the response is allowed regardless of incoming firewall rules. This is not what is triggering the incoming network connection prompt. An incoming network connection prompt occurs when a program tries to listen() for connections.

Good luck Oak! Of course, I don't mean to imply I don't like to solve things on my own... I just know that Apple has great tech support and this was the first solution which came to my mind :-)

You don't have free tech support via their 800 number? (1-800-MY-APPLE) If you purchased your Mac within the past 90 days you're still within that period

comment How can I see bandwidth usage on a Mac?
+1, this is an awesome program. To see what processes are using the network, from the Little Snitch menu choose "Show Network Monitor".

comment Finder search does not find all relevant documents MacOS 10.6.8
Sadly, no. My solution was to not use Spotlight. A lot of my files are on AFP shares, that could be part of the problem. Or that I use FileVault. But whatever the reason, I have given up on Spotlight.

I have been monitoring the temperature with Temperature Monitor, and the CPU code is ~120°F or ~50°C

I should have mentioned I tried smcFanControl and it seems to have no effect on fan speeds whatsoever...

This has always happened to me also. Sadly the only resolution I was able to come to was: Spotlight is totally useless. :-(
