comment How do I remove extra extension when creating a PDF?
I tried that, but I admit I'm running a beta OS. Just tried it on a bog-standard Mavericks 10.9.2 (in textedit, since pages was not installed there) and it didn't keep the rtf extension. I wonder if LaunchServices db needs to be reset?

I just tried this and I cannot reproduce. What version of OS X are you using?

comment Can an xbox360 be connected to a thunderbolt iMac to be used in target display mode
@Buscar웃 are you actually using this adapter to display an Xbox 360 on an iMac in Target Display mode? Things I find (like discussions.apple.com/message/22849461#22849461) say the adapters are not bidirectional.

comment Make Emacs-style shortcuts behave differently than arrow keys.
Amusing that you want OS X to act like Emacs, when Emacs recently changed to act like OS X.

comment Is Mac deployment controlled like the Apple iOS Developer Program does?
You do not need to disable Gatekeeper if you want to run unsigned programs. With the default setting, you can right-click on the app and pick "Open", and that will allow you to run an unsigned program. Once you open it once in this way, you will be able to run it normally in the future.

I'll admit, I set line-move-visual back to nil because I was used to the old way too! I just found it amusing.

As of Emacs 23.1: ** The C-n and C-p line-motion commands now move by screen lines, taking continued lines and variable-width characters into account. Setting `line-move-visual' to nil reverts this to the previous behavior (i.e., motion by logical lines based on buffer contents alone).

comment Cron job keeps running, not in any crontabs
It's not there by default, but if it were there, it would read it. I thought that might be it....

Check /etc/crontab. That is the system crontab. It is separate from the per-user crontab you would get for crontab -l as root.

comment Legendary sudo rm -rf /
Anything that is already loaded into memory is still there. Also, any files that a process has open are still on disk, and the space is not reclaimed until after all close them. So, since bash was running, it could still show its prompt, etc. But it would not be able to load any commands, since they are all gone. Similarly, when I tried this from a terminal on the Mac, instead of doing an ssh in, the finder and UI was still there... But any time a program tried to open a file, it would fail.

comment Why do external drives spin up for webpage rendering?
I suspect it is making a font request for a font that is not activated, and it's spinning up the other drives to check the spotlight indices on the external drives to see if the fonts are present there.

comment Can a thunderbolt cable transmit power?
Corning has recently released optical Thunderbolt cables for longer cable runs in 10m, 30m, and 60m lengths, so your addendum is a good point.
