Just another SE user. I like asking questions, posting answers, and writing comments. Sometimes I vote.

comment Why is my MacBook stalling occasionally since being upgraded with an SSD?
agree with @Richard especially regarding space concerns, if the SSD is full or close to it. Another thing to bear in mind is that SSDs have a fairly significant failure rate (atleast when compared with a mechanical) and from experience I have found that this can be a symptom of a dying SSD - essentially the writes fail and never finish because the block they are writing to is bad or damaged. you can probably find more info from the manufacturer about this, see if they have any known issues.

comment Is It Possible to Interact With the Windows in Mission Control?
dont think so. as far as I know what you are seeing there is more like an image than the window itself, so you have to focus on it / come out of mission control to interact with it.

comment OSX 10.7 Apache can't do file uploads to local server
good to know the user, thanks. just one niggle - i can't seem to find a terminal on the server. do you happen to know where they hid it? or is it normally in plain view?

comment OSX 10.7 Apache can't do file uploads to local server
the error is the same nomatter what uploader or code I use to try and create or save a file on the server - wordpress is merely the most verbose of these when it fails so I used that as an example.

generally it's just an HTTP error depending on the uploader. Wordpress says "error creating directory [dir]. Is it writable by the server?" or words to that effect - I've already googled this ofcourse but found nothing helpful.
