comment How to add a 2nd account to receive imessages
No, the iPad is designed as a one-user device, not as a one-family device. Each user has to have their own iPad, not their own account on a shared iPad.

comment Why won't OS X query multiple DNS servers
If it gets a response from the first DNS lookup it won't try again with another DNS server, even if the first response is NXDOMAIN. All your DNS servers are supposed to return the same results; if you're relying on different DNS servers with different results then your architecture is broken.

If you can't tell which is which, messages in green bubbles are SMS messages and ones in blue bubbles are iMessages.

comment SMS remotely deleted
Do you mean iMessage or SMS? It has to be one or the other, and can't be both -- the Messages app on an iPhone handles both kinds of message, but they're completely different ways of sending text messages.

comment 30" Cinema Dispay (1st gen) with AppleTV
That's basically a duplicate of this question: superuser.com/questions/332099/…. The Cinema Display only has a Dual Link DVI input, and the Apple TV only does HDMI.

I wouldn't have thought so, if it's been kept awake all the time and not had the lid closed to put it to sleep. If it's been asleep then you need to be counting the time it's been awake for, not the total elapsed time.

comment Connect to internet from iPad without SIM card but connected to my PC with USB
This is really just a question about sharing a PC's Internet connection over wifi, and so it's off-topic for this site. The fact that you want to share it with an iPad is irrelevant, because all of the configuration required will be on the PC -- it would be exactly the same answer for an Android tablet.

comment So my Yosemite install is slow - what to do?
Honestly, it's reindexing. That's what the md_worker process does. Give it some time.

comment So my Yosemite install is slow - what to do?
Whenever you install a major OS X upgrade, Spotlight has to reindex everything, which takes a long time and causes disk activity and slowdowns while it's in progress. You have to leave your Mac turned on for at least a week before you can judge Yosemite's performance.
