comment Parental controls not logging off user
@DavidLevy perhaps a better question is, "Why doesn't limiting work that way?" Why would it not work like that? What sense does it make to leave someone logged in using resources they can't access?

comment Log out other user w/o first switching to that user
Question mentions the wife, but there is actually an even better case - when you have a child that has exceed their time limit for the day and only plays games and does other things that don't need saving. Now not only do you have to log in as the kid but add time just to log them out.

@tubedogg But it seems odd to me that trying to share it as a regular drive wouldn't work either...

comment How can I prevent TextEdit from saving previous versions of a text file?
@bmike I just noticed you edited the title at some point, that may be where the confusion was occurring... my question wasn't about Dropbox, it was about textedit; the problem just seemed to be exacerbated by the fact that the file was in a Dropbox directory.

Thanks, that worked... I have deleted the old files and after a few saves they don't seem to be coming back.

comment Deleting files on sparse bundle disk images doesn't actually free the space
This doesn't seem to free up anywhere near the space it should. On one image I get "Reclaimed 15.3 MB out of 84.1 GB possible" where du reports the sparsebundle is taking 16GB of space, but the file system when mounted reports only 4GB is in use!

comment How do I set up Apple Mail to show me e-mail priority?
This does work for new messages (although why it doesn't work to apply the rule to existing messages, I don't know). I now also see "!!" between the e-mail address and the time in the message, which I did not see before. Just seeing the "!!" by default would be fine, since we want to deploy this solution across our organization with minimum fuss.
