comment How can I prevent dropbox from saving previous versions of a text file?
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.

comment Screen Sharing won't allow me to paste into remote system
this worked for me until the next time I needed to copy/paste, at which point I had to disconnect and re-connect a second time.

comment Backing up a disk image with Time Machine
Can this be done while the disk image is mounted? If so, how does it avoid problems with the image being modified during the back up process?

comment Parental controls not logging off user
finally after explicitly doing a kill -9 on the loginwindow process for the user in question, then doing sudo killall -9 -u username to kill all processes, they all went away. but after a minute I still have one process of the affected user that restarted itself: /usr/sbin/cfprefsd. What the heck, Apple?

comment Parental controls not logging off user
strangely on my 10.10 system, even sudo killall -9 -u username results in 6 processes still running, and then after a few seconds 3 more, and a minute later a total of 51 processes are running under the child's login!

comment How to completely disable auto-save and versions in Mac OS X Lion?
Any way to disable this in only certain cases? It's annoying to see all these .sb files in my Dropbox folder!
