comment Remember window sizes and placement when unplugging and replugging second monitor
@dreeves Yes, it works for me. I just successfully did that manually, using Slate’s menu items “Take Snapshot” and “Activate Snapshot”; if you click them before and after you put your computer to sleep, you will save and restore all your window positions. From the docs, it looks like Slate can do the “Activate Snapshot” automatically with its default directive. I don’t know if you can automate the “Take Snapshot” part.

comment Is there a button in iTunes to say “Stop after playing this song”?
⌥⌘U is a keyboard shortcut to open the Up Next pop-up. I don’t know of any built-in shortcut to Clear, but if you have Tab set to move keyboard focus between “All controls” (Control+F7 to toggle), then you can hit Clear after opening the pop-up by hitting Tab three times and then pressing Space.

comment Install OS X in VirtualBox on iMac?
I couldn’t get VirtualBox to boot from a .dmg file I made from the Snow Leopard install disc. The VM successfully booted from the disc after a few minutes, after I made these changes: increasing Display > Video Memory from 6 MB to 128 MB, enabling 3D Acceleration, telling VirtualBox to populate the CD/DVD drive with my host drive (real physical drive) instead of a virtual disk file of the DMG, leaving out the EfiBootArgs ExtraDataItem tag, and adding <ExtraDataItem name="VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode" value="4"/> (which just changes the screen resolution from 1027×768 to 1440×900).

comment Lowest volume is still too loud—how can I make it even lower?
For those who don’t know, osascript -e "something" runs something as a single AppleScript statement. You can equivalently write the statement in the app AppleScript Editor (in /Applications/Utilities/) and click Run. (See the osascript man page.)
