comment Is there a way to securely erase an SSD on my MacBook Air?
It may be the case that Apple is accounting better for SSDs now a days. It be the case that since it's encrypted it does not really do anything more when you tell it to secure erase it, its an unlink and done kind of thing. If you have a spare drive see what it does if it sits there for hours erasing, that's bad. Almost instant its probably doing like I said...

No in most cases you just need to open a new terminal window for the changes to take effect, the changes will only take effect in the newly opened window.

comment How to re-download Lion from Mountain Lion
@BradAckerman yes thats a correct assumption, you can only install onto machines that support that version of OS X. It may be the case when you see that "computer doesn't support" message when you are trying to install a version of OS X that was released before your Mac was built.

comment How to re-download Lion from Mountain Lion
@BradAckerman This tip is not necessary under 10.9 Mavericks, since the App Store on 10.9 just does the following: "Would you like to Continue? "OS X 10.9 is already installed on this computer. Are you sure you want to download OS X 10.7" Press "Continue" to begin the Lion download. The good news is Apple is now less Jerks about these things™, so legacy away and feel free to download all the old versions of OS X.
