comment Differentiating Apple products by their MAC addresses
This will only work if people are not spoofing their MAC addresses. If they are, you may either get false positives or false negatives, depending on who is doing what.

comment How can I disable pop-unders when using Chrome?
Have you tried a general-purpose ad-blocker? I use AdBlockPlus for chrome and can't remember seeing any pop-unders, though I don't browse to sites that might have them very much.

comment Time Capsule and multiple Macs
@gentmatt - If "a little space" is ~20 GB, then you are correct. The initial backup will be the size of a complete install of OS X.

comment How do I find how much disk space a program is occupying?
Ah, it's: du -h -d 1 on mac. Freaking Cent-OS. I guess that's what I get for assuming there is some consistency in the GNU coreutils.

hmmm. I tried it on linux, assuming they hadn't messed with it too much. I know there is a way to do it on a mac (because I've used it on a mac). Hold on.

I really wish there was a way to make the gestures 5-finger only.

du -h --max-depth=1 is much more useful. It prints the size of every item in the current directory, including the total size of every folder.

"Applications" are just folders full of files, so the find command will recurse into them, and unless they have resources individually larger then 50M, this will not show them.

I have never understood why anyone buys this, when there are utilities like Grand Perspective and Disk Inventory X that are easily as good or better, and free!

comment What OS X tweaks, hacks, or modifications couldn't you live without?
@Jeff Atwood - A poll of "What's your favorite Ice cream flavor" would tell you a lot about what flavors are out there, and a fair bit about which are popular/good.
