comment how to switch windows faster…?
You can also use the mouse to select an app when you're in the Cmd+Tab menu.

comment How to Kiosk Mode a Web Page OSX - Chrome
For what it's worth, I think Kiosk mode is enabled but you have to open Chrome from the command line to pass it the --kiosk parameter. That being said, I haven't been able to pass any parameters successfully.

comment How to make aliases go away when main file is deleted?
You could write a script that removes all broken aliases on your computer but I'm sure you already knew that since you said "automatically" delete. Maybe have the script run every day? I'm interested to see if there is a solution as well.

comment Some SSH commands do nothing?
@APShredder Maybe Apple disabled this "feature" or maybe the command was never updated for iOS 4. The link is from 2009 so it's possible that it just doesn't work. As for launching apps, it seems like you would need to launch them with SpringBoard but I don't know how you would do that.

comment Which OS X Applications do you find indispensable?
@Jonik Yes, the intelligent awesome bar is excellent. I switched to Chrome and really miss being able to type in some arbitrary parts of the URL in order to find a page in my history.

comment Is there any free solution to convert a SWF video to an iPhone/iPad compatible format?
This may not be relevant to the question, but an alternative is converting on the fly. There is a project (the site appears to be down) called SmokeScreen that is supposed to convert flash to html5 on the fly. smokescreen.us/demos/intro.html

comment Download Manager for Mac OS X
This should probably be a comment since your answer is the same as nanda. Also, I think you mean bash not batch script.

comment Saving .htacess passwords on iPad
Also note that using this method would mean you are sending your username and password in plaintext so anyone on your network could potentially see this. If you're not connected to your home wifi, then this is not a good idea.

comment Get a DVD onto my iPhone
@Vaccano I don't have a lot of experience using HandBrake since I don't own DVDs, but a lot of people on the EiC forum swear by it. Maybe a tutorial will help? everythingicafe.com/forum/threads/…

comment Is it possible to run commands from spotlight?
+1 for DTerm. A lot of people don't know about it, yet it works so well. Also note it is in the Mac App Store itunes.apple.com/us/app/dterm/id415520058?mt=12

comment Please share your hidden OS X features or tips and tricks
You just blew my mind. There have been times where I wished something like that opiton-drag thing worked but I figured no one would ever implement it. Now I need to remember what I would use this for :)

comment Please share your hidden OS X features or tips and tricks
This is such a good feature. I remember when I first got my Mac and I was like, FINALLY scrolling that makes sense. Especially when you have dual screens and you don't want to have to click to activate a window just to scroll down a couple ticks.

comment Git: command not found during Git installation (Mac OSX 10.6)
@politicus If /usr/local/git/bin:/usr/local/git/bin:/usr/local/git/binis the only thing in your PATH then you probably manually changed your path and removed everything that was on there before. You were supposed to APPEND /usr/local/git/bin to your PATH if it wasn't already there. Terminal commands are really just tiny programs and bash needs to know where to locate those programs so it uses your PATH.

comment How do I burn a single ( > 7GB) file to multiple DVDs?
Is your friend using another Unix-y system? Or are they one Windows? Because that might change the answer.

comment Access localhost on iPad
@hmthr I looked up WebLogic again and I confused it for a web server when it is in fact an application server which I know nothing about. This question should probably be migrated to StackOverflow.

comment Access localhost on iPad
@hmthr Try disabling VPN. Just run the web server and host some arbitrary index.html page. Visit windows-pc-name-here and it should work on any machine connected to your local network, correct?

comment Access localhost on iPad
I have not used weblogic before but can you configure it to use the VPN without configuring your whole machine to use VPN?

comment How to correctly pipe output into “say” in terminal
Thanks that worked. I'm guessing read line reads each line of an input and then you just echo the line so you can pipe it to say?

comment How to correctly pipe output into “say” in terminal
I used that command to pipe STDERR from leave to say and it almost worked. Basically, all of the output was sent at one time rather than in increments.
