comment Is there a way to get Terminal on Lion to start up cleanly (without the buffered history)?
You can also close all the windows when quitting. Sometimes I like it to be clean. Sometimes I like retaining the old output.

comment Legality of iTunes sharing
As far as I understand, anything that iTunes will let you do, you have an implicit license for any iTunes purchased content (it would at the very least be a strong argument in court). Content obtained from other sources would be a different matter.

@Paul - No, Apple doesn't allow alternative runtimes. What you write in Air gets compiled down to Objective C.

comment How to stop flood of Non-Local IPv6 events in my Console (system.log)?
That's a new one on me. I've never seen that. Perhaps you could capture some ip6 traffic with tcpdump and post it somewhere?

comment How fast does a modern Mac SuperDrive spin a CD or DVD?
It depends on where on the disk you're reading. The outer edge of the disk has to spin faster to read at the same rate as the inner edge. So 1x is about 200-500 RPM (on the inside to the outside). There's a chart here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CD-ROM#Transfer_rates
