comment Turning off hibernate on a MacBook Pro with an SSD
@duci9y - Then change "Continuous use" to say "continuous writes". As it is, it's only an extremely contorted interpretation that you can make it say that.

@alexy13 - It's my understanding that the sleepimage is compressed before being written to disk. I would also bet that anything residing in wired memory is evicted from memory before the sleep image is taken.

The time the drive has been powered is totally irrelevant. It's the volume of data that has been written to the drive that affects a SSD's lifetime. -1

comment Time Machine Drive Failure
rsync will not properly handle the symbolic links, even with the proper flags (--preserve-hard-links --links). I tried to copy my time-machine backups using rsync at one point, and my 500GB backup wound up filling a 2TB hard drive before rsync gave up.

comment Qt Creator for Mac
@Sam - The idea behind Qt is you can generally compile your app for any platform. Realistically, you generally have to do a bit of tweaking for each platform, but it does make it easier then writing native apps for every platform.

Well, I wound up with multiple different RSS readers. I had no luck tweaking the contents of the app's .plist or anything.

Logging into the new account and logging in using reeder there does not help. Neither does switching users with su or sudo -u

This produces "Keychain not found" errors when you actually enter your google login info.

comment What determines whether podcasts are played individually or sequentially on an iPod?
You're answer is the exact opposite of what I want. I'm having issues because all my podcasts are playing sequentially, and I want them to play individually
