comment How do you adjust the dock bounce animation in OSX?
I don't think that you can change these aspects of the dock behaviour. In the several years of using and tweaking my laptop with defaults.write commands I did not come across such a customisation. Can't provide hard proof though.

comment Mail, Contacts & Calendars refuses to connect to Google
Unfortunately this is not a viable solution or me as I rely on the Syncservices framework in Mountain Lion. This framework is not present anymore in OS 10.10

comment Mail, Contacts & Calendars refuses to connect to Google
Unfortunately not. I simply cannot add a Gmail account through the Mail, Contact & Calendars pane, so neither can I check the traffic in Mail.

comment Mail, Contacts & Calendars refuses to connect to Google
@bmike I'm not quite sure I understand. Should I make the troubleshooting steps I've followed into an answer and remove the from the question?

comment Mail, Contacts & Calendars refuses to connect to Google
@FFrewin while its a workaround (which I use now as well, thank you), it doesn't really solve the problem. It should just simply work as it did a couple of days back. I'll keep looking for a solution.

comment Mail, Contacts & Calendars refuses to connect to Google
Yes, several times :) I've had to do a disk repair (restart necessary) and booted from an external drive (into Yosemite).

comment How to edit the /etc/hosts file?
I'm on Mountain Lion and this doesn't work for me unfortunately. Whenever I try to change something I get an error "You don't own the file hosts and don't have permission to write to it".

comment How to search installed application based on functionality?
@yannis I am as sure as the wiki source I linked to earlier. These answers mention it as well. You could try it out with two version of an app, overwriting it and checking if the comments remain.

comment How to search installed application based on functionality?
@yannis No, I believe it won't. The comment is actually stored in the .DS_Store file so if you update the app, but keep the same filename (which is mostly the case) the comment should still be there.

comment Temporarily disabling RAM to mimic a lower spec machine?
Why is not removing the chip a requirement? Couldn't you just swap the physical RAM of the two MacBooks?

comment DVD plays on MBP but not on Projector
We need some more information on what you are doing. Does the projector show an image (your desktop) at all? Does the projector show up as an external monitor in the System preferences -> Display?

comment Can I make unlocking the screensaver also unlock the login keychain?
I'm actually missing the usefulness of locking the keychain in addition to locking the screen. Couldn't you just set the keychain to never lock and let the OS ask you your password whenever it comes back from sleep?

comment How to mark some columns as ignored for calculations Numbers?
Hmm... There are checkmarks which translate to a 1 or 0 value. You could incorporate that value in your formule. Using my previous example, assuming checkmarks live in the first row and data lives in the second row onwards you could try something like A$1*A2+B$1*B2+C$1*C2+D$1*D2.

comment How to mark some columns as ignored for calculations Numbers?
Ah ok. So a cell should calculate A1+B1+C1+D1 for one month, and when in another month the same cell should calculate A1+D1, right? If it's actually based on months you could try writing a (nested) if-then-else condition.

comment How to mark some columns as ignored for calculations Numbers?
Could you please add an example? Right now I don't really understand why you can't simply point the formule to the cells you do want included in a calculation.

comment Mount combo (USB/COM) device
The second site you link to says Connect your navi2coach to your computer... On a MAC a new device “navi2coach” will be recognized. You have a navi2move. As these are different products, I assume that your device is simply not supported on the Mac. This is in congruence with the text on the Functions page of your device, where the only supported OS is Windows.
