comment Turn off iTunes Wifi Sync
@Tetsujin Do what, where? I can't find info on what it is or where to find any such feature.

comment Does iTunes WiFi sync communicate with the Internet?
Downvote is probably because the question is specifically about iTunes Wifi Connect feature, not just network traffic. I believe iTunes Wifi Connect is about your Mac & iPad syncing data locally over the wifi without going through iCloud at all. But I'm not sure. But that seems to be what the Question is asking, which is my own question as well. I suspect you are answering a different question altogether.

comment Clean Install, or in-place upgrade from Mountain Lion to Yosemite?
As I said, in the old days those in-place upgrades of Mac OS X almost never worked quite right. People with glitches, weird problems, and ghost-in-the-machine problems were almost always the people who did in-place upgrades rather than the clean-install people. I wonder if there is any evidence for that no longer being the case.

comment How to download old version of Mac OS X that I own and App Store lists, but App Store refuses on newer Mac
When I filter that list for "os x mountain lion" I get no offers to download the entire OS installer. I see five downloads for updates not original installers.

comment How to download old version of Mac OS X that I own and App Store lists, but App Store refuses on newer Mac
This Answer is indeed the only option I've found. I tracked down a friend with an older Mac, used the Guest user account to log into my Apple App Store account, then used App Store app to download the ≈ 5 gig file for the Mountain Lion installer app. I also had to provide the borrowed Mac’s admin user name and password because I was downloading an OS installer. The installer auto-launches, but you can quit the installer before it does anything.

I'm trying to install the older Mac OS X versions into a virtual machine (Parallels, VirtualBox, Fusion).

Not directly relevant, but my motivation is to install the older OS into a virtual machine (Parallels) for developing and testing software. Apple does not make this easy. Ironically, Microsoft makes this testing chore super easy by providing pre-configured virtual machine files ready to run in Parallels/VirtualBox/Fusion for a variety of current and older versions of Windows ( XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 ) at no cost.

comment Where can I get a copy of Mavericks after Yosimite has been released?
The developer.apple.com page no longer offers old versions. Only current (Yosemite) and beta (El Capitan) are listed for download.

comment Issues due to upgrading to ios 8.4
Have you tried a cold shutdown of the iPod touch? How do you know the wifi is working, can you surf using a web browser (Safari, etc.)?

Formerly free of cost, but now is an inexpensive commercial product. See vendor explanation. Please update Answer; StackExchange blocks my attempts to do so.

comment Scrolling text box in Keynote.app?
Thanks for the Answer. I'm looking for a simple scroll box with a scroll bar. During my presentation I want to peruse a list of a thousand phrases. The animated tricks are too awkward for that.

comment Avoid inadvertent “Shut Down” of Mac
@Buscar웃 Yes, there's a countdown. But (1) that means the shutdown will occur if I look away, and (2) the default keystroke on the countdown dialog is the affirmative button, to immediately shutdown. Both of those behaviors are bad for a server. So, again, my question is about ways to avoid the problem in the first place (on server computers).

@Mark I'm programming Java and Objective-C. See updated Question.

comment What characters might be used to substitute for colon in folder names using a time-of-day?
Interesting idea. This answer is almost too clever. Looking so much like the regular COLON might cause confusing when parsing.

@Mark Modern versions of the Finder may handle a colon. But during programmatic access, problems ensue.

comment Set Print Range in Numbers.app
I don't see how this is a solution. We want to suppress some cells from appearing on the printout. Scaling magnifies/shrinks the printed content.
