comment Why doesn't my Mac Pro see my new 4TB SATA drive?
Thanks bmike! It must be a hardware issue because the OS X installer, The VMware ESXi installer and VMware ESXi 5.5 all can't see the drive. I'm guessing it's a SATA 3 speed auto-negotiation issue but can't confirm that.

comment Why doesn't my Mac Pro see my new 4TB SATA drive?
@IanC. No, the Mac Pro has drive sleds and built-in SATA. There's no SATA cables attached to the drive itself. Also, I was upgrading a 1TB drive which works so I know that port is good, plus I tried all 4 bays.

comment How do I change the location of screen captures on 10.5?
This is great info, but should be asked as a new question (How can I change the name of a screen capture file) and then copy your answer to that. It's perfectly Ok (and encouraged!) to ask and answer your own question in order to share knowledge. Post a comment on my question with a link to your question after you post it and I'll upvote you.

comment How do I enable a standard account to SSH in?
You were encouraged properly :-) Don't rewrite builtins. Add a new command E.G. trash and use that. If you switch to a different system (E.G. via SSH) it's much better to get trash: command not found than to accidentally rm a file when you thought you were moving it to the trash!

comment How to move files to trash from command line?
However, it is good advice to not alias the rm command, as morgant said, because you'll become comfortable with rm not actually removing files and then might accidentally delete something on a system where no such alias has been added. Also, moving a file to the trash is not as simple as just mv {} ~/.Trash. If the file is on a separate volume, for example, this will copy the file to your home directory and delete the original.

Great answer patrix! I would have only given 2>/dev/null myself, +1 for being so thorough!
