comment Is there an AirDrop client for Microsoft Windows?
@stuffe You are missing the point. Windows airplay is not supported by Apple. Windows airplay is created by third parties without Apple's permission.

comment Is it legal to use WINE to play PC games on Mac?
It's not "Vine". It's "Wine". (Nerdy joke: Vine is not even Wine.)

comment Using Wine to open Windows .exe
Is the exe available for download so we can test it? Have you tested it on Linux? (Wine often works better on Linux.)

comment Is it okay to uninstall the old versions of iWork/iLife after their respective upgrades that come with OSX Mavericks?
I like the design of the new apps, but I can't work with the lack of features. It'll probably be at least a year before the new iWork is usable.

comment Copy and paste stops working
Definitely post a list of processes that are running when it starts doing this. Also send us a list of non-Apple kernel extensions. (kextstat | grep -v com.apple)

If you change the primary display to the other monitor, you should be able to get the other resolutions back.

comment Damaged and can't be open app error message
If an app says it's damaged, it means that it has been changed since the developer signed it. This could mean that the developer accidentally changed it after signing it, or that it has been maliciously changed.

comment how do I write a homebrew recipe?
Brew will extract and cd automatically. You don't need to run make clean, because the build directory is temporary. The current answer has the rest.
