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.
