comment Does homebrew store tar.gz after package installation is complete?
I can make some guesses: makes re-installation easier. But, just a guess.

comment When can the Apple Watch be purchased from in store?
At this time, there is no public information and any answer on this question is pure conjecture and speculation.

comment What's the difference between iTunes Match and Apple Music?
Answers on Stack Exchange sites should attempt to be canonical, citing sources and references where possible. This reads like you're guessing.

comment Install application on external SSD and load from external SSD to RAM?
Addendum on point #3 -- if your home directory and OS install is on the internal drive, the application may use disk cache and application-specific setting storage on the internal drive. Really: it's complicated.

comment Find logged on user and network home directory with a bash script
From the post "The script will almost definitely not be run by the logged on user." -- your answer won't work to discover other users on the system.

And you're calling your script with sudo <name of the script> right?

comment Script to change Computername/hostname causing bizarre Terminal behavior
Have you considered quoting your $compName variable on the off chance it's being interpreted as an option? Try: scutil --set LocalHostName "$compName"

comment Terminal backslash input repeated in output
The problem is the $ in the first awk statement -- what are you trying to achieve with that that whole awk -F $'\t' '{print $8, $9}'? Are you really expecting your field separator to be a dollar sign followed by a tab character? Or are you trying to use $ to denote the start of the line?

If this doesn't solve the problem, please delete it. It will continue to attract down votes for being an entirely wrong answer to the question asked.

comment How do I delete unlinked folders from iCloud.com
This isn't really a useful answer. Can you elaborate on how it was solved? If someone else found your question because they had the same problem, could you leave behind something that would guide them to a solution? Should they talk to Apple support? Make a Genius Bar appointment? Power it off and on again?

@njboot for an explanation of the staff group see: superuser.com/a/20430/26633

comment Terminal Command: List admin account
@njboot this is incorrect. You can inspect the sudo setup on an OS X machine to convince yourself of this. If you do sudo visudo you will see that elevated privs are available to accounts in the %admin group, not %staff. That makes the admin group the group you need to be in to administer an OS X machine.

comment Tool to quickly hide/blur/redact text in as screenshot?
@Arion easily disabled in Skitch's preferences. See the Sharing pane, uncheck Automatically Share and Copy Link after creating new Skitch Notes. You can also remove all accounts. Having an Evernote account is not required to use Skitch (I don't and it works fine for me).
