comment What causes the retina Macbook Pro HDMI-DVI output to cut out on occasion?
Just as a datapoint, I have this same issue using a Mini-DP to Dual Link DVI adapter, as referenced in my answer at apple.stackexchange.com/questions/57734/…. I have yet to find the cause too..

comment Magic Window causes GfxCardStatus to switch to Discrete mode
That looks to be OpenGL related only, so doesn't cover all the cases I think. But nevertheless, useful to know.

comment Installation of Wine via MacPorts not working with 10.8 and XCode 4.4
Have you reinstalled the Xcode commandline tools? I think I had to do this when I updated to ML, even if Xcode hadn't been updated.

comment Magic Window causes GfxCardStatus to switch to Discrete mode
No, there isn't really a concept of overusing a GPU. Running it at extreme temperatures for prolonged amounts of time would possibly damage it, but the machine will shutdown automatically long before it gets to that point.

comment Creating charging switch on iPhone charger
I'd go for the low tech solution of simply unplugging it at night if it were me - this would be how most people treat their phone anyway, just in reverse (run down during the day, charge at night?) :)

comment How to recover deleted data from erased hard drive?
First and foremost, turn the laptop off and don't boot it up. Every time you use that HD from now on, you lose bits of data that were on it before. Ideally you want to attach the laptop to another mac in target disk mode, and take an entire image copy of it - then work on the copy. This will avoid any further loss than has already taken place. I'm afraid I can't recommend any specific file recovery tools so this is just a comment not an answer.

comment Can an iPad (3rd gen) run solo with an Airport Express
I'm not sure I get the correlation between the PC crashing and it bringing down the WiFi network, can you explain a bit more about this non-Apple router and how it integrates into the network?

comment How to change the creation (st_birthtime) date/time of a file in Lion?
Frankly I would hope you can't change it, as surely it would defeat the entire point of the field?! Also I suspect some of hte problem is that birthtime/creation time isn't a standard filesystem feature; hfs added it in their extended attributes, I think - so unless utilities have been updated to recognise that, they won't be able to do much with it.
