comment Unknown when I receive incoming calls on Iphone 5S
There are no wireless carriers that I know of in the US which charge additional for caller id. AT&T does not charge extra for its wireless plans. It is very common to charge extra for caller id on landline phones, but the iPhone is not a landline.

You need to create it yourself in 10.10.

comment “Log out (username)” logs out all users
Does everyone get logged out and the system stays at the login prompt, or does the system reboot? Everyone would get logged out during a reboot, which is the only thing I can think of.

comment Old scanner compatibility with Yosemite?
Hamrick Software is very responsive, and Vuescan is usually the only way to get old scanners to work, since manufacturers don't update the drivers. Send them an email: they will almost certainly work with you to get it working, and I'd bet they'll do that before you purchase the software so you know it'll work for you.

comment FreeNAS, OS X Yosemite and automount
NFS is used more often in Unix circles, so you might have good results researching Unix and Linux NFS tuning. For example, here's on from Linux. slashroot.in/… Finding something on BSD to BSD NFS performance would likely be perfect, since FreeNAS and OS X are based on BSD.

comment External Monitor's USB ports don't work
Yep, this is it. VGA can't transfer USB signals, and monitors with VGA, HDMI, DisplayPort or DVI require a separate USB cable to act as a USB hub. A Thunderbolt monitor can offer USB ports without an extra cable.

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
