comment Deleted hidden files and now Mac won't boot, how do I fix this?
This answer could be improved by providing some steps to follow once in Recovery Mode. Should they restore from a Time Machine backup? Verify the disk? Reinstall OS X?

comment Why does a system upgrade take so long if there are files in '/usr/local'?
See my updates. I'd just brew remove them and then brew install them when you're done. Don't forget to run brew cleanup after brew remove is done.

You can definitely remove it all and re-install after the upgrade. For the most part there should be no customizations in /usr/local itself for Homebrew packages. All that stuff lives in your home directory. I'll update the answer with some information on saving and restoring a Homebrew install.

How do you know it's visible via Bonjour? Are you seeing it in the Finder side bar of another Mac?

comment Why is my MacBook visibile on Bluetooth after Yosemite install?
What does "visible on BlueTooth" mean? Can you post a screen shot of your phone that shows what you mean by "visible"?

comment Time Machine stopped working after upgrading to Yosemite
With the Console app open, when you start the Time Machine backup, are there any Time Machine-related messages in Console that might shed some light on what Time Machine is doing that's keeping it in the 'preparing' state?

comment Watch HBO on AppleTV without jailbreak
@AndréDaniel you'll also need a subscription to a US cable service with HBO on your bill -- you need to authenticate your HBO subscription before the app will work. It's not like Netflix where you can just subscribe to Netflix in your country but VPN to the US and see the US content.
