comment Disable inactive memory swapping
I never said it would work well and the first question was about the amount of RAM in the Mac. It answers your question. The proper Solution to your question is to get more RAM.

comment Better Internet Sharing
OS X is a really terrible platform for network routing. You'd be much better off using more suitable hardware and an OS dedicated to networking/Routing/firewalling.

comment Cannot display Macbook Pro on external projector
Nope, it can just cause similar symptoms. If You're not using it, it can't be the culprit.

comment Will OS upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mavericks erase other partitions?
You can't directly upgrade from Snow Leopard (10.6.x) to Mavericks. You need to take a mid step of either Lion or Mountain Lion.

comment What is the purpose of the Shift+F3 keyboard shortcut?
The shift slowdown actually was already present in 10.0. I'd need to dig out public beta or DP CDs to check if it was there even before. Serves no purpose, must be art.

comment Mobile account, syncing certain files
Make sure you always have good and current backups. Home Sync has a very long history of trashing files and creating sync conflicts. Especially when used with multiple machines.

comment Is there a way to 'search' for items on the desktop by typing the first few letters of the file name?
Thanks for adding the example. That helped (me) a lot to follow. Try rebuilding the Spotlight Index. System Preferences > Spotlight then drag the HD/SSD of your Mac into the exceptions. Close Aystem preferences and reopen it to remove it from exceptions again. Wait for the Index to be rebuilt (which can take some time). See if it fixes your problem.

Can you post a screenshot where You're typing and what? I'm not sure yet what exactly you're doing and what you mean by showing only old documents.

comment How can I increase text size in single-user mode?
@ven42 Just out of curiosity since I administer a lot of Macs as well: WHY single user mode? The times I really needed single user mode in the last 15 years can be counted on one hand (in decimal).
