comment OSX: how to determine USB current draw?
Not exactly what you're looking for, but maybe helpful: Using System Information and then checking your USB devices you can see the available and required current per USB device.

comment Equivalent to Windows' Baretail
Upvoted as it does answer the question. However, please keep in mind it's a good Stackexchange custom to disclose an affiliation with a product recommendation to maintain a certain objectivity. Please state in your answer that you have developed this application. Thank you!

comment Can I globally change the cmd-Q shortcut to require holding for two seconds, like the option in Chrome?
Can these two questions, and the answers, be merged? SlowQuitApps is not mentioned as an answer in the earlier question.

Could you maybe elaborate on the "messes up" part? What is iTunes doing exactly to your sound settings?

Did a Time Machine backup run at some point before and close to the deletion? It might contain the files you're after.

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.

@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.

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?

How does Automator fail? Does it bring up an error message?
