comment Fix Mavericks vertical scrolling lock? (jerky scrolling, accidental safari back)
My answer is about an app that "re-enables" scroll locking on Mavericks. The question is about scroll locking not working properly on Mavericks. My answer makes it work.

comment Mavericks: how to disable responsive scroll
An Apple engineer did it using what looked like an AppleScript during the "Optimizing Drawing and Scrolling on OS X" WWDC session. The video is available at developer.apple.com/wwdc/videos. This doesn't mean it's still possible in the latest build of Mavericks.

comment Mavericks: how to disable responsive scroll
The "works on 10.6 => does not have responsive scrolling" assumption is incorrect. This is about which SDK the app links against. You can have an app link against the 10.9 SDK and work fine on 10.6. As far as I know, the general approach is to link on the latest SDK, so most likely Chrome does that. If it didn't, it wouldn't have responsive scrolling. There are no multiple versions of Chrome based on what OS X version you are running. That's silly.

Disabling inertial scrolling is not an option for me (I hate non-inertial scrolling). Also, responsive scrolling is unrelated to inertial scrolling. You still get responsive scrolling with or without inertia.

@Simon yes, tried that. This is also on a fresh install of Mavericks.

That perfectly describes the issues I am having ... For what it's worth, I'm on a 2012 MacBook Pro.

comment What would happen if I use a Macbook Air Powersupply with a 15" MacBook Pro Retina (or vice versa)
For what it's worth, I've got a 2012 13" MacBook Pro (non-Retina) and my girlfriend has a 2011 MacBook Air. I've used her charger a lot and she used mine, no issues so far (4 months in and battery charge capacity is the same). My MacBook Pro takes longer to charge with her charger, though.

comment How to make the Notification Center menu icon glow, (like Twitter does) when notifications are present?
In earlier developer builds of Mountain Lion, the notification center icon used to glow when there would be "unread" notifications. This is worth looking into, as there might be a hidden setting to turn it on.

Thanks! I was sure it's a bug and not something obvious, so I missed it.

comment Gatekeeper not blocking apps?
Did you download/run them before setting GateKeeper to "App Store only"? If yes, they're already allowed on your Mac and the current GateKeeper setting doesn't matter.

comment Disable Stand By Mode on Retina MacBook Pro?
Yes, sudo pmset -a standby 1 re-enables standby mode. I have no idea what the default value for standbydelay is.

comment Reserve a static IP address on an older Airport Extreme base station
You shouldn't have to. It worked for me... Are you sure you're configuring your server properly? Just look at the IP settings given via DHCP to any other device on your network and copy them to your server, but change the IP to be 10.0.1.2.

comment Enable “standby mode” for MacBook Pros
What makes you believe they are different? The functionality is the same (save RAM to disk after a period of regular sleep). Even if different, shouldn't either the pmset standby or the article standby work?

comment Enable “standby mode” for MacBook Pros
I think you might be wrong. From the pmset man page: "The setting standby will be visible in pmset -g if the feature is supported on this machine". Why would it be visible in pmset -g if it's not supported for my machine?

comment Comparing MacBook Air sleep resume times
That's for HDD-based MacBooks. Please see support.apple.com/kb/HT4392, which applies to MacBooks that come with SSDs by default (2010 and later Airs and Pro Retinas).
