comment MacBook Pro creates soft hissing sound through headphones
I don't get the downvotes. This worked for me!

comment Customize Lock Screen
I didn't know it was a screensaver. I'm used to Windows, where the Lock Screen and screensaver are two different things.

comment How do I move a third-party application's menulet from one location to another in the menu bar?
Yes, go to your startup items options and rearrange the order the programs launch in. Instructions for how to access: support.apple.com/kb/HT2602

Yeah, the others are a little louder, but still not loud enough.

comment Better Skype taskbar icon?
No, I hide my dock usually to get more space on the screen (although I don't think it matters) and I would like to just have the icon in the taskbar let me know when there is a new message, for two reasons: 1. The box that comes up in the corner of my screen is annoying. 2. Sometimes I leave my computer and don't like to have to check Skype for new messages each time I come back.

comment Writing equations inline in Mac Word
No, LaTeX would take even longer, unfortunately. I use the equation editor to do quick inline things like putting in a bunch of integrals or adding functions.

comment Wobbly Macbook Pro
I tried that and it was the table. Very strange, but I'm relieved :)

comment Wobbly Macbook Pro
I found out I can solve the problem by sliding a piece of paper underneath it. I think I have OCD.

All well and good, but is there a way to do this for free?

Is it possible for the new version of Lion to have changed bootcamp or your startup procedure in some way?

comment Best way to see multiple Microsoft Word windows?
That's still more clicks than I would like =/ Basically that's like Windows, but without the "don't collapse" option selected.

comment Best way to see multiple Microsoft Word windows?
I like this option, but isn't there some way to show multiple instances of the same program in the dock? Or to show the different documents currently open? It really seems like there should be.

comment What is the Elo of the Mac Book chess engine at top strength?
You have to do a large number of those to get an accurate comparison, which would take forever since at the top level it takes a very long time to move. Such things are usually done automatically, but without access to the actual code for the engine, I can't put it into a program that would do that.

comment Skype way too quiet. How to get louder Skype audio output on my MacBook Pro?
Yes, although I can hear it (everything is louder in my headphones).

comment Skype way too quiet. How to get louder Skype audio output on my MacBook Pro?
Her microphone is turned up really loud, and like I said iTunes is nice and loud. It's not, like inaudible when the equalizer isn't used, in fact I can hear it pretty well then too. Whatever it is, there must be some way I can give Skype and Chrome more volume. I don't think it's a problem with the MacBook because I've seen a lot of similar issues on Google.

comment Word for Mac - Equations
I downloaded the trial version, all good! I can use it for a whole month, and in that time I'm sure I can get my school to give me a free copy. Do you know if there's a drop-down symbol selection menu? That's one thing I really miss, cause now I have to click on a button and a window comes up.

Yeah, I want the old documents.
