comment How to make some space on iPad?
@wheat Its hard to tell from the question, but my guess is that Rabskatran is thinking of being away from the computer, wanting to take a picture and not having any more space. In this case it makes perfect sense to want to delete something that can be synced again later.

comment User UUIDs on different Macs
@Harald NFS does work exactly that way by default. File ownership is determined by UID. There are options to change that, like mapping root to nobody. This works fine when users are centrally managed and don't have admin access to their machines, or are trusted at some level.

comment How to configure Terminal to be “Putty-like” when it comes to copy-paste with mouse?
I use a macbook and a magic trackpad on my desktop. No middle button, no right button. I do have my trackpad setup to do a right click when I tap with two fingers. I don't know of any way to easily do a middle click on a track pad. However, I sent the iTerm developer some email, and this was added to the desired feature list. Hopefully it will get added sometime soon.

comment How to configure Terminal to be “Putty-like” when it comes to copy-paste with mouse?
@Ian That will copy to the clipboard when text is hilighted, but won't paste on a right click. It brings up the context menu. It doesn't look like there is an option to do this, but it seems useful.

comment Java developer planing to buy Mac
Recommendation for MacPorts seconded. It will fill in all of the utilities you are used to having in Linux but don't come with OS X.
