comment Numbers '08: How to create a histogram?
I'm thinking throwing out Numbers and doing it in Python is most correct answer I'm afraid. Or upgrading Numbers.

comment How can I alter the tempo of a song?
@Buscar웃 recording at a faster speed does shorten the length of a song. Playback at a faster speed does this as well. The song has a fixed number of beats in it and is being performed a specific tempo which can be described in beats-per-minute. Playing those same beats at a fast beat-per-minute tempo causes the song to end sooner.

comment how do I write a homebrew recipe?
To the 'Homebrew formulas are written in Ruby point' -- I've seen a bunch of formulas now that use Ruby as a caller in to an installation routine written in another language. So at a minimum you need to know enough Ruby to do the install/uninstall routines and the rest you can do in <insert language of your choice here> by calling out to a helper script.

comment How to Screen Sharing / VNC to an iMac without waking the display?
In Mavericks, upon connecting to the other Mac with Screen Sharing, if someone else is already connected to the Mac as a remote user, a dialog asks if you want to share the display with the other remote user (Share Display), or log in concurrently using a different user name and screen (Log In). Choose the option you want.

comment Using `say` to read terminal output from a command line tool?
You may want to pipe it to a say + sleep function so there's a slight pause between reading each line.

Have you taken the laptop to a repair depot or Apple Store? It sounds like you might have a problem with the trackpad.

comment How do I erase partitions on a drive that's been protected with FileVault 2?
@l'L'l yes, sorry I didn't mention it, but I did try partitioning it from the command line by FileVault and the logical volume layout appears to be preventing that from working.

comment Find all executable files within a folder in terminal
You can use -L instead of -or -type l to cause any stat calls made by find to return the stats of the file linked to, not the link itself.

comment Find all executable files within a folder in terminal
Symbolic syntax must be new -- thanks for pointing that out. I updated my answer so it uses octals and is backwards compatible with older OS X versions.
