comment Why do I have to reset NVRAM so much?
@Buscar웃 Oh, BT = Bluetooth. Yeah, it's on and the mouse is BT and works fine.

comment Why do I have to reset NVRAM so much?
@Thecafremo Initially powering off the computer was sufficient to fix it. After getting tired of that we took it to the Apple Store where they fixed it by resetting NVRAM. On this last try that didn't even work without first taking the keyboard to another Mac, plugging it in there, and then returning it back to the iMac.

@Buscar웃 What is BT? I'm using the standard corded USB keyboard (full layout, American English) that came with the computer.

comment Is there any way to create a hard link in the finder?
Is there a way to make an action that takes effect when doing a drag/drop from one folder to another while holding down something like the option key which provides the destination folder so the hard link could be created directly in the new directory?

comment Time Machine deleting non-Time Machine files from disk?
No I'm not sure at all, but it's the only potential culprit I see and I'm rather at a loss to explain where these files went if Time Machine wasn't involved.

comment How to jump to a location using mouse on iTerm/terminal?
I take that back. Mouse reporting doesn't work only in some cases - for instance, if you ssh to another machine, then attach to a tmux session already running emacs. This used to work. Now you sometimes have to exit out of emacs and restart it before mouse reporting works...

Did mouse reporting break in the last release? It no longer works for me, I don't see the cursor "o" and I can't figure out how to get it back.
