There is probably an anecdote from the Bell Labs from the early 1970s which either solves your problem or improves your understanding of it.

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.

comment Remove duplicate smart playlists in iTunes
Thanks. I don't know why this didn't work before. Maybe it was enabled by a recent iTunes upgrade (I upgraded from 9.something I think).

comment How to find un-synced content on my iPhone
Mine cleared up after I did "transfer purchases". By following the progress indicator in iTunes, it seems that the untransferred purchases were paid (non-free) apps. I had been looking for a way to sync those before, but didn't find anything like it in the Store section. Am I missing something or is this the only way to keep the paid apps synced? (And why doesn't the error dialog explain this, if it's this simple?)
