comment Simple text editor that supports highlighting and font colours
Making your own major mode for Emacs might get you the best of both worlds. Learning Lisp may be an obstacle which should not be undertaken as an afternoon project, but you'd be surprised by what can be done with relative ease once you have a good grasp of the platform.

comment Simple Console Editor for OS X Terminal
The requirement to run in Terminal pretty much excludes any modern conventions like selecting with the shift-arrow keys or interacting with the system clipboard.

comment How to use Aquamacs on a non US keyboard?
It wasn't obvious to me at first that this is the correct answer, but it is. The problem is that Aquamacs by default maps Alt to Meta. Just uncheck that and your national keyboard will work fine.

comment Log out other user w/o first switching to that user
If you end up running Awk anyway, the multiple grep commands can easily be avoided. ps awwwwux | awk '/her_short_username/ && /loginwind[o]w/ { print $2 } | xargs kill and see also iki.fi/era/unix/award.html#grep

comment Run bash script at login stored in the home folder?
I don't think you can use tilde with sh; when Bash is involved as sh, it runs in POSIX compatibility mode, which disables many Bash extensions.

comment Why is the menu bar showing the VPN “Disconnecting” animation forever?
This just removes the "Disconnecting..." message. If you try this and then check the "Display VPN Status in Menu Bar" option in Network Settings to bring back the indicator, it will also bring back the "Disconnecting..." message.

comment Why is the menu bar showing the VPN “Disconnecting” animation forever?
For the record, this suggestion was originally "Restart Finder". I suppose it's too late to flag the over-enthusiastic edit for a rollback.

comment Why is the menu bar showing the VPN “Disconnecting” animation forever?
I was able to kill pppd only with sudo kill -9 pppd which is unsettling. Perhaps I wasn't patient enough with the regular kill. But if this is really what it takes, that's unsettling, and basically indicates that pppd is buggy. For what it's worth, I also tried disabling (not removing) the service in Network Settings, then reenabling it, as suggested by @KyleCronin, but it just brought back the scrolling "Disconnecting..." message.

comment System sounds “queued” up
So is there a way to purge the queue? Sometimes it plays old sound effects for quite a while.

comment How can I set the priority of Wi-Fi networks on my iOS device?
I tried this, but it was a disappoimtment. It amounts to degrading your less desired network to "don't autoconnect" whereas the behavior I am interested in is to always reconnect to the most preferred network as soon as it's available.

For the record the current download link for the iPhone Configuration Utility seems to be support.apple.com/kb/DL1465

If both networks are in range, you don't have to forget the one you don't want; just select the one you want (so it gets the check mark).

comment Is there a way to convert audio files in Mac OS X or the command line without using iTunes?
+1 but I really wish somebody would add a pointer to exhaustive documentation. I have gotten it to work through trial and error and guesswork, but many of the options I should perhaps have been using are very very briefly documented.
