comment A way for the Command+TAB app switcher to continuously cycle instead of stop at the end
Since it sounds like your main complain is due to missing the desired app while cycling - did you consider using the mouse to select the app from the switcher?

comment AppleScript referencing tabs suddently breaking on Chrome
Using script editor 2.7 and Google Chrome 39.0.2171.99 (64-bit) on OS X 10.10.1 and your script runs fine (using activate instead of "[do something here]").

@nashmaniac for a quick fix open iTerm, and enter export PATH=/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11/bin this should give you the default tools back. Test with echo $PATH .

comment keychaindump OS X 10.8.5 how to run it?
The tool you linked to only allows extraction of data from logged-in users; which, usually, have an unlocked keychain by then. Since the other user changed their password, the system will no longer unlock the keychain during log-in, thus the tool should not be able to extract anything at all.

I'm confused; what do you mean with "because the login id been changed, and so far there was not yet a reset on the keychain pwd "?

comment Four Apple Monitors on a Macbook Pro
If you got the money to consider buying 4 Thunderbolt displays, maybe consider buying a Mac Pro and 4 non-Apple displays instead; should give you better performance than a MacBook Pro anyway ;-)

comment How to use the programming calculator in OS X?
You can hover over the calculator keys to see a short description of what they do. Also, watch the binary values to see a bit better what's actually going on.

comment “Open With” …running application option?
I just realised that in the specific case of BBEdit you should already have "Open File in BBEdit" within the "Services" part of the context menu (at least I do)

comment How can one start a process and monitor its syslog messages?
Not completely sure what you're asking for; if it's a temporary solution, you already included it in your question (wouldn't be to complicated to put in a .sh script) if it's a more long-term thing you should configure /etc/asl.conf with something like [= Sender exampleApp] [< Level Error] file exampleApp.log. In any case if you want to log something, you need to store it somewhere; whether it's a file or "only" printed on your screen, it's using more or less the same resources.

comment How long can I safely leave my Macbook Pro running?
Couldn't it be better to have the lid closed, since you're then not using the graphics card & monitor anymore, hence resulting in a lower overall temperature?
