comment How Do I Use 'cp' to Overwrite Files?
Not sure why this was downvoted. I was under the impression that explicitly specifying -f would override -i in the alias, but I checked and it does not. The poster should find out whether they have cp aliased (type alias cp). They can change the alias in their profile or use /bin/cp as suggested.

Ah, how fleeting memory can be.

@fluffy I hate it too, but it's been that way for as long as I can remember. Did Finder's autocomplete ever work the way it does in the shell?

comment Why did some applications have to rebuild their database after a Time Machine rollback?
Thanks, that helps a lot! I searched for info on this, but I assumed that it was an issue of the backup being out of sync with some external information source rather than Time Machine deliberately excluding some things.

comment How do I enable a standard account to SSH in?
I didn't technically rewrite rm, I wrote trash and aliased rm to trash for my account. But your example goes farther, and provides a strong reason not to do that either...

comment “device not configured” error when attempting to reach specific websites
It doesn't appear to even be trying to load the site. Also note that I get these anomalous error messages when I use ping, so I don't think it has to do with the content of their web pages. I've also verified that these sites respond to pings normally using a different computer.

comment My new MBP Retina needs to be recharged after 2 1/2 hours
Yes, if Chrome is constantly running at 100%, that's what's draining your battery. And no, that shouldn't be happening. That usually happens to me when there's a rogue flash application or something like that slamming my processor.

comment Disable copying of file
Why pictures? If they're able to read the code, couldn't they just copy-paste it into a document on their computer? There's no reasonable way to prevent that.

comment Lost first backups - time machine
Good point. I didn't realize it started purging old daily backups right away, rather than just not guaranteeing that it would keep them.
