comment How can I get my entire iTunes Match-based music library to appear on my iPhone?
Unfortunately I had this checked and still wasn't seeing newly-added content on my mobile device. But that's awesome it worked for you!

comment Prevent someone else from using my iCloud account?
I've made an attempt to clean this one up. Please let me know if I've misunderstood the question you were asking as we'll edit it further.

comment Can't rearrange Dock icons
I have no problem moving icons in the dock after their name pop shows. I don't think this the solution.

comment Is there a way to make “find my iPhone” not work?
Could you provide detail on how you might go about doing this exactly? Answers that only provide a superficial amount of guidance, such as this is in its current form, tend to attract down votes.

comment How do I “isolate” one of the vocal parts (bass, tenor, alto, soprano) in an audio (MP3, etc) file?
Look at the image I posted: i.stack.imgur.com/Y1umS.png -- you can see a box in the upper right hand corner that shows the range of the oboe. There's a line in the middle of the chart the corresponds to the oboe and the red part of the line maps to 200 Hz - 2 kHz (I was eyeballing it, off by 500 Hz in my post...) on the bottom of the chart.

comment How do I “isolate” one of the vocal parts (bass, tenor, alto, soprano) in an audio (MP3, etc) file?
Correct -- if frequency bands for the "instruments" (vocal parts in your case) overlap, you cannot isolate the parts from each other. This is, unfortunately, an impossible thing to do with any process, real or virtual.

comment How to configure Finder to let me rename dotfiles?
Could you expand on this? Perhaps show an example of how you would build such an Automator service?

comment Can’t reboot into OS X from Boot Camp
@alex it's the Option key on a Mac keyboard or Alt on a Windows-style keyboard.

comment How does “Find my Mac” work, since there's no GPS in a Mac?
@jmlumpkin I edited your comment as there was some confusion around what the "not worthy of an answer" referred too. I'm certain you meant the information in your comment wasn't enough to stand as an answer unto itself. Just made that clearer.

comment macvim not respecting os/x shortcuts
It's been a while since I've used MacVIM and not just plain-old-vim, but my recollection was: no, it didn't use the normal OS X bindings for copy, paste, etc. There are also issues using mvim to launch MacVim from within a tmux session and the OS clipboard not being shared.

Did you copy your .vimrc settings from the old machine to the new machine as well?

comment iPhone 5s takes blurry photos only in apps that access camera
Welcome to Ask Different! This is less an answer to the question and more a comment on the question. Please use this area for canonical answers only. Questions about what have and haven't been tried should be left as comments on the question or, better, taken to a chat channel. I'll leave this stand for now to give you a chance to turn this in to a proper answer because I think you're on the right path here, but please bear this in mind in the future.

comment Getting music NOT purchased from iTunes to show up on my iPhone
It is always best to include the relevant details behind a link. Links rot, but information copied in to your answer does not.

comment Can I update to OS X Mavericks if I get a new graphics card?
@humberto I updated the dead link with a link to the internet archive of the page. It would be super awesome if you could edit this answer to include all the relevant details from that page. It would save future link rot from occuring.

comment Why are some of music files not being added to my iCloud Music Library?
Definitely not duplicates. Also, can you expand on "re-sync the library" -- what exactly does that mean?

comment Why is extracting this tgz throwing an error on my Mac but not on Linux?
This is really a comment -- it doesn't offer a solution, it's only discussion on an existing solution. Johnny, can you please move this to a comment? I'll come back and delete this later, just wanted to give you a chance to move it first. Thanks.
