Probably not a priority for apple; they'd just expect you to upgrade to Mavericks/the latest.

comment Can't create kext cache under / - owner not root
@klanomath Thanks for your interest. I think maybe it's actually complaining about who owns the root directly of the mounted drive. Have discovered other SD drives are fine. I don't think the card is borked (at least not yet) but rather the filesystem on it is. So if I can work out some way to mount it without it trying to mount it...?!

googling around for you it looks like you're experiencing a common problem with safari on yosemite. I didn't look hard but didn't see any aha! solutions for you. Is there a more recent safari than that?

OK that makes sense. No, not rude—sanity checking.

You want to subordinate your 2012 iMac to a 2009 MBP just for the screen space. Really?! Surely you can just sync the filespaces or some better option?

I hate to suggest it, but have you thought of getting the ports repaired? I found a local not-apple-endorsed technician who was perfectly capable of fixing it overnight for an unexpectedly reasonable price.

comment How do I change the virtualbox “Host Key”?
thx. It's an idea;haven't tried yet as I'm holding out to see if anyone knows of a native way to do it. Turns out it's not too critical provided I ensure that the "mini toolbar" is enabled for full-screen mode as that allows me use the mouse to get out again... (provided the guest has a working mouse).

comment How to configure local apache virtual hosts?
Thx. For (4), yep webapp configs, one BOFH insisted i put them into /etc/ which seemed really odd at first but have since come to like it for the total separation from code; yet I've never seen anyone else ever suggest it so I was fishing to see if it popped up.
