comment Update bash to version 4.0 on OSX
There is no need to do that. In fact, it is always a good idea to keep the original one. Two or more versions of bash can be installed at the same time, and you can set whichever one you like to be the default

comment Weird text alignment in System Information on Yosemite
@jtbandes: It was the scrollbars. I don't have an extermal mouse, but I had "Show Scroll Bars" set to "Always". Switching it to "When scrolling" fixed the problem. Please put that as an answer.

@jtbandes: As for the defaults command, initially after running the command running it doesn't fix now something happened and it shows Domain (com.apple.systemprofiler) not found. Defaults have not been changed.

@jtbandes: this is the maximum width, if I reduce the overal width past certain size, the content of the bottom pane disappears (kind of goes behind the left-hand pane), I added a screenshot

comment TRIM won't turn on Samsung 256GB 840 Pro
Trim Enabler (that the author of the blog post doesn't like) worked fine for me on all 10.9 versions. But if you don't want to use it, note that 2 of the comments in the blog post suggest that the instructions don't work on 10.9.5 for other people too. Note also the comment below one of the 10.9.5 comments about rebooting twice, that could help.

revised How do I recompile Bash to avoid Shellshock (the remote exploit CVE-2014-6271 and CVE-2014-7169)?
The edit wasn't simple version update; it mentioned that the current version is corrupted on Macports and the suggestions would only work after 4.3.28 is fixed
