comment terminal ask for ssh passphrase every time
Nevermind, I was trying to guess why it was being triggered, but it looks like it automatically tries to load an SSH key if it finds one in ~/.ssh/id_rsa. Did you generate an SSH key for something?

Did you try to add your SSH key to the agent by adding the command to .bash_profile?

comment Which Macs support HDMI with ethernet?
I don't know for sure, but I suspect that this feature isn't exposed or supported at all. I've certainly never seen HDMI show up as a network interface. If the TV has an ethernet port, you'll probably have a much easier time just using that.

comment How do I use/enable Tor when using Terminal?
It depends on the script. It would have to be written to work with a SOCKS proxy.

comment Delayed, undesirable sleep on de-powering MBP retina with ML
It might be worth running a command like pmset -g log | grep -E '^.{24} Sleep ' in Terminal to hopefully see what the sleep cause was.

comment Syncing non-Amazon purchased eBooks between Kindle, iPad, and iPhone
As explained in the other answer, it's very easy to add ebooks to Amazon's cloud storage as personal documents. From that point on they're treated no different from purchased ebooks. That answer does need to be edited as Send to Kindle also supports mobi and AZW files.

comment How does one access Team Foundation Server from an iDevice?
I assume TFS refers to Team Foundation Server. It's an unusual acronym around here so it might be good to edit and clarify that.

comment Can I prevent a remote Mac from entering sleep via a remote ssh connection?
I don't have time to write this as a full answer, but caffeinate is a command-line tool built-in to 10.8 that can also be used to prevent sleep temporarily.

comment Serial-Ethernet or Serial-WiFi (or Serial-Bluetooth?) on OS X
Yeah, I'm assuming that the networked adapters would only allow one connection at a time just because that's what serial devices expect. They could design something to get around that limitation, but that takes effort to get right and I always assume that hardware manufacturers will do the minimum possible.
