comment Fetch new mail only while on Wifi (but not while on cellular data)
Interesting, this is helpful! Unfortunately it prevents fetching mail even manually when on cellular data, so I'd have to flip to settings, toggle this, fetch mail, go back to settings, and re-toggle it (what a pain). Consequently, it's less than ideal, to say the least... but maybe it's the best that can be done with the current system. Thank you!

comment Monitor connected via DVI-to-Thunderbolt requires minutes of jiggling before it is recognized
Have you done anything to determine whether this is a problem with the cable? Smells like it could be a hardware issue with the cable or connectors (e.g., that they are making a flaky or imperfect physical connection).

What is the observable impact of your problem on your ability to use your computer in the way you want to? You say that kernel_task is using 2 GB of RAM; how do you know that (what did you use to figure that out), and how do you know that is a problem? At least on some other operating systems, it's not necessarily a problem.

comment DVD drive connected wirelessly to iPad
Thanks, @Buscar웃! I'm happy to buy equipment to make this work -- so that sounds like a good solution. I didn't even know such things exist. Thank you for the suggestion!

In retrospect this wasn't Mavericks-specific. Try to follow the guidelines on Meta for software recommendation requests.

comment How many amps should an iPhone 5s car charger output?
This looks a bit confused. The question is asking about amperage, not watts. 2.1 amps (2.1A) is not the same thing as 2.1 watts (2.1W). Also, unsourced speculation is unlikely to be helpful. In addition, regarding "That answer is false" - this is not a discussion forum, you should not use answers to comment on other answers. Just stick to answering the original question.
