comment How to change AppleScript path to a Terminal-style path?
The / at the beginning of the path is the boot volume. Other hard drives are under /Volumes/

comment Is there an easy way to update a NetBoot image?
We're a mac shop, so the NetBoot setup is really handy because I can Net Boot any mac here to do maintenance on the boot drives. Also, if there's a problem with anyone's OS, they can Net Boot and have a working environment instantly. It was a pain to set up initially, but is really, really useful.

comment How can I stop spaces from switching automatically?
@mankoff: It does, or worse, it will do it when i am typing something in one app, it will switch me away from that app to a space with another app. It often happens when an app is unresponsive. Like earlier today when I asked this, iTunes couldn't find some songs and was just giving the spinning beachball. I switched spaces to write some code, and every ~5 seconds it would switch back to iTunes, which was still unresponsive.

That first one sounds perfect, but I just did it and now, when I click an app in the dock, the system no longer switches to that space. If it also solves the issue I was having, I can live with it however :-)

comment OSX: Is there a way to change the default behavior of copy/move overwrite?
@glenneroo: There's nothing built in to the OS that supports this. Sure, I could be wrong, but I am 99.99% sure that you'll need third party software for this. A good portion of "system hacks" are actually properties which can be enabled with the default command, and there's nothing under there that does what you want. :-(

There is no "system hack", you'll need to install third party software or use unix tools.

iCal is a much easier solution! See the screen caps I posted. I sure can see how they could be intimidating :-)

comment Why does “Copy” replace stuff instead of merging it?
I agree that Apple didn't want to confuse users, but I think the package argument is irrelevant... Folders and Packages are already handled differently. In fact a package is not the same as a folder. Both are directories, but they packages and folders are treated differently in the GUI.
