comment MacBook to external monitor via VGA adapter not filling whole monitor
What model monitor are you using? Some have restrictions or quirks when it comes to VGA.

comment charging my Macbook Pro (85w) with my Macbook Air (45w) charger
The charger will report the max power it can output, and the MBP will not draw any more than 45W. Unfortunately, I can't find any references for that right now.

The question is, with rootless on, how did Xquartz create the symlink?

This might be interesting, as it explains that you can use all of the RAM. apple.stackexchange.com/questions/2498/…

comment Why `echo -n` doesn't work in this script on mac terminal?
@cde, are you sure that bash does not use the built-in echo? Invoked as /bin/bash or as /bin/sh, type echo returns echo is a shell builtin for me.

comment Disable the guest user completely in El Capitan without having to disable 'Find My Mac'
The point is to make Find My Mac work. If you turn Find My Mac off, the guest account will go away. The reason it's there if Find My Mac is on is that if someone steals your mac, it cannot report its position unless the thief connects it to a wifi network.

Yes, Guest is deliberately enabled when FileVault and Find My Mac are on, since the only way to see where your stolen Mac ends up is if the thief can log in.

That seems like a terrible idea. Disabling FileVault makes it trivial to access all of your files, including any user other than guest the attacker wants.

Why would you want to disable the guest account?

comment What's the max resolution for mini DisplayPort connected to a 2013 MacBook Air?
That's a good point. Since it's analog, I bet the circuitry on both the DP->VGA converter and the monitor matter.

comment Is there a user font for San Francisco in El Capitan?
The fonts are available via the Developer site for registered developers, but the license only allows its use to create mockups of interfaces and prohibits other uses.

comment New MacBook had user accounts already; I deleted admin and can't get back in
If you do it this way, you're not sure what else has been added or removed from the system. Reformatting is the safest way to ensure that you're running a good system.

comment Install Adobe After Effects 7.0 on OS X Yosemite
That's a really old version (9 years old). There may be no way to install it.
