comment Where should shell tools be installed?
Perhaps "core" was the wrong choice of word (since it gave the impression that all of it resided there), but what I wanted to convey is that it is part of your OS and you shouldn't tinker with it. Of course, this is pointless now as you have removed it from your question in an edit. As for texbin, it's a convention that they've adopted and stick to (nothing wrong with that). There's also a /usr/local/texlive, where the packages are installed to.

comment Can OS X be remotely accessed using the GUI but securely to hide what is displayed locally?
Have you tried using LogMeIn? I haven't personally used it since I don't have more than one mac, but a lot of my coworkers have used it and found it very useful.

Although it doesn't work with Eclipse, this answers my question, so +1! Eclipse needs vim with gtk support, but I seem to be having issues compiling that as well. However, that's a different issue and looks like I might be able to fix it myself. Thanks :)

Ah, ok. It's not OS X Server... we're all on our individual macs.

"server based permissions and account management toolset" could you elaborate on that? I understood the shared disk setup to mean that everyone could access others' files unless it was encrypted. Is this not the case?

I'd say this is probably a good life lesson for him... one never truly learns the utility of backing up unless one has actually lost something very valuable.

comment Where does OS X remember previously connected bluetooth devices?
@Matt Nope, most certainly mean DOE. It was the DOE that developed and set the standards for securing/erasing data.

This is what I thought might be the case... I'll test resetting my PRAM the next time I mess with my computer and accept it then if it works

If they're unpaired, they don't appear in that list
