comment Dedicated SSD/HDD to install Windows on a MacBook
FWIW: You can buy an external enclosure for your old SuperDrive relatively cheap. No reason to waste good hardware, and then when you need to actual use a disc, you just plug it into USB instead of opening up your machine and swapping drives

comment Phone Numbers to be ignored
When I wrote that, the only network was AT&T. Verizon and Sprint hadn't received the iPhone yet. I'm not sure what the other networks' options are, but I'm sure they have something similar. Anyone on Verizon or Sprint, feel free to chime in.

comment How can I disable animation when switching desktops in Lion?
This is probably a situation where the problem is simply still too new. Over the course of time, I expect there to be numerous articles about this sort of thing and integration into the various "preference-changing" apps like Onyx. You may just have to wait a little while.

comment Teach Safari to ignore case if necessary when opening local html file
No, not all filesystems are case-sensitive, and you can actually choose between case-sensitive or no when formatting a drive as HFS+ (the Mac OS X filesystem). The default should be case-sensitive, though.

comment Is it safe to always leave a Macbook Pro on?
The battery of later model MacBooks (ones if non-removable batteries) have a chip that stops charging the battery once it has been fully charged.
