comment What OS X and iOS software combination tracks finances?
I was annoyed at the behavior of YNAB. Now that I read it's Adobe Air, I understand what's wrong with it. I'll try MoneyWiz. For me your answer was the most helpful, because: Yes, good usability is good interface design. Ugly just don't work for me.

comment Software to track income and spending on OS X and Android
I'm not in the US (nor Canada) and cannot use Mint. I need software that does not require a US bank account.

comment Ordered list with capital letters in PowerPoint?
No, I have to apologize. I uploaded the graphic after your answer. And, like you, I just didn't think that the options would differ between languages.

PowerPoint does not provide an option to number a list with uppercase letters. I wouldn't have asked a question here, if it did.

comment How to easily and completely disable/enable WLAN (so it cannot be turned on again while travelling)?
It is VERY MUCH easier to have willpower in the quick moment I leave the house, than have to have it all day long. So it is much more likely that I'll leave the USB stick at home than it is that I don't use Spotlight to find an invisible app. The best method to exercise self-control is to avoid situations where you need it.

lol, usually when I ask something straightforward without explaining the context there is a lot of back and forth about why doing what I want is not a good idea or what else I might do for what people think I want to achieve :-) Thanks for trying to help me!

comment How to easily and completely disable/enable WLAN (so it cannot be turned on again while travelling)?
Your answers don't work for me and are not what I'm asking for. Note that my question includes the word "deinstall", while the other questions don't. I had a Windows laptop and there simply deleted the software that did the WiFi connection. No more WLAN for me and no way to reinstall it while not at home. Foolproof. And with software like Firefox, you can copy your app to a different HD, delete it from your computer, later copy it back and run it as if it was never gone. Maybe something similar is possible for WLAN. That's what I'm asking for.

That doesn't work, because I have memorized the login credentials (they are the same for all electronic services and everyone knows theirs by heart). If I delete the login credentials, I can re-enter them in a matter of seconds.

comment On startup Calendar shows only one calendar
This worked. But let's just assume I actually wanted the behavior described above, how would I set Calendar to behave that way?

comment What is creating a file with the name “1” in my user folder after I delete it repeatedly?
I no longer have OS 10.6.8, and I never managed to catch the creation of the file, because I forgot or was too lazy to start up fs_usage, but I accept this as the right answer, because it seems that it should have worked with a more diligent user than me :-)

comment MacBookAir 11" - WiFi not connecting in Europe
I used to have timeout errors for the first day with my new MacBook, too. I was able to connect after disabling auto and choosing one network as preferred network, I believe. Experiment with those options.

comment MacBookAir 11" - WiFi not connecting in Europe
Did you disable the search for available networks, when you set up your system at home? I used to get a pop up at the train station showing me all kinds of networks, and since I only use the university network I disabled this search (there was a box to tick off) and now I don't see any networks, as if there weren't any (but there are, it is a service of the train company). I don't know what all these options are called in English, but I'm sure you can find out, if you know what to look for.

comment “Self Destruct” script to remove certain directories and/or applications
I mean is it "rm -rf path/to/file" or "rm -rf\r\n/path/to/file"? You describe the process as if the paths have to go on a new line, but I would have expected the paths to go on the same line as the remove command. So where should they go?

re 4. and the file paths must be in the same line as "rm -rf" ?

comment What is creating a file with the name “1” in my user folder after I delete it repeatedly?
When I open a file in Xcode, sometimes Terminal writes "21:36:32 getattrlist /Users/username/1 0.000014 Xcode" for a few lines. It does not happen every time, though.

comment What is creating a file with the name “1” in my user folder after I delete it repeatedly?
Thank you. Is there a way to write this to a log without having Terminal open? Because I don't know when the file will get recreated, and very likely by then I will forget to have Terminal running. Also, I started fs_usage and then opened a folder in the finder to navigate to my userfolder to delete the file, all of which created more than 400 lines in Terminal, all with stat64, getattrlist or open, all with "Finder" given as the executing application. Quite a few of those lines (about one fourth) give the path "/Users/username/1>>>>".

If I delete it, it reappears after some time. I don't run any AppleScripts, at least not knowingly.
