comment Why `echo -n` doesn't work in this script on mac terminal?
@Zen, Tutorials.com probably assumed Linux. Mark, you are absolutely right. Since this is on Ask Different I answered for OS X.

comment My NAS connected through AFP or SMB takes really long to load folders with many files?
This is a good question. I've found that some network protocols are really slow with big directories, and optimization tips would be handy.

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.

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.
