comment How do I find out what my iBooks “authorized computers” are?
No. You do not need to authorize computers for the Mac App Store. If you are an individual acting in your personal capacity, you may download and use an application from the Mac App Store (“Mac App Store Product”) for personal, non-commercial use on any Apple-branded products running Mac OS X (“Mac Computer”) that you own or control.

comment Why do editors such as BBEdit and Textmate have the option of ending your file in a newline (line break)? Why is that important?
The reason for the option is buried in history, in old Unix programs which did not cope well with text files without a final newline. It's not unique to Mac OS, so the answers are probably better on another site, e.g. stackoverflow.com/questions/729692/…

comment Why does my wired ethernet connection die periodically after a DHCP lease renewal?
Check your console logs, if the interface goes down there should be some logs referencing en0.

comment Does Yosemite still allow “per-user” Screen Sharing?
Yes. There's no getting around the fact that you have multiple users active at once. Shared libraries and application binaries will actually be shared in memory between the users, but all the working memory (Safari pages loaded, documents, etc) will be separate, so you will probably need about twice as much memory as a single user.

comment How to submit an application update to only a select few users for A/B Testing?
Unfortunately not from Apple. You could get an enterprise account and do ad-hoc distribution, or use your 100 device slots to send beta builds to people.

Consider using TestFlight from Apple for this: developer.apple.com/app-store/testflight

comment Trying to convert pdf to text for free
Are you looking to extract text from PDFs which already contain text? (i.e., you could copy and paste pieces out of them) Or are you looking to recognize text that is in image content?
