comment Macbook Pro Late 2011 stuck at 0.8 GHz
Then it is probably a corrupt preference file or some other problem on the first user. I'd start by repairing disk permissions in disk utility. Rereading my first comment, my Apple //e ran at 1MHz :).

Try logging in as a different user on your main partition. Does it still register .8MHz?

Hodgkin-huxley Did you install 2.3 yourself? That hasn't shipped from Apple since Tiger (10.4).

comment What features of Mavericks are beneficial to you?
Somebody is putting words in my mouth, and the answer is confusing. All I was trying to say is that the biggest immediate improvement since going to 10.9 is the improved battery life on my 2012 11" MBA. That is a fantastic feature. Getting better performance from my hardware by just upgrading some software is pretty amazing.

comment Diagnosing what's wrong with “vintage” iMac
I've done this before. Once I had the old hard drive backed up I formatted it. After a while it stopped mounting at all. As far as the screen flicker goes, that is probably not related to the hard drive at all, but a bad video card or a cold solder joint.

I looked in the DMG file and it looks like that partition isn't bootable anymore, so I'm not sure if this method will work to make a bootable installer.

Why do you do it that way rather than restore it via Disk Utility.app?

comment Numbers regex for stripping domain from email address
I don't know if Numbers has one. If it doesn't, then you will need to export to CSV and the problem of removing what you want from the email address becomes much harder.
