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!

Any way to disable this in only certain cases? It's annoying to see all these .sb files in my Dropbox folder!

iPhoto was obviously trained with the same pareidolia as the human brain to see faces in random objects.

comment How does double-tap to drag work?
@Tetsujin no, on further experimentation, after double-tapping, click-dragging doesn't drag the window, no matter how long I wait. only after i try to click-drag and release can i then try again and succeed at the drag actually happening.

trying this on a window... once i quick double-tap, click-drag doesn't actually drag. i seem to be locked out of dragging for about a second.
