Your question mentions both Internet sharing and file sharing. Which is it?

comment What is disabling internet sharing on my macbook?
Are there any other user accounts? Are you an admin? To check, to go System Preferences -> Users and Groups. Also, under System Preferences -> Mail, Contacts, and Calendars, are there any accounts on the left that you did not set up?

comment How can I access a remote machine via SSH from behind a proxy?
They're trying to connect to SSH, not HTTP.

Can you try to connect using the -vvv argument and edit the question with the output?

comment Is there an alternative to Messages?
I, on other hand, have watched it happen in real time. I'll have Messages up on my MacBook Pro while sending from my iPhone and will watch messages I sent from the phone appear on the computer in the wrong order or missing some words. I use iMessage on three Macs and two iOS devices, and in my experience, the only thing I can count on iMessage doing reliably is not working.

comment How can Apple Mail be configured to mimic Gmail's “Archiving” behaviour for a generic IMAP account?
That depends on if Archive is a local folder or an IMAP folder. If it's an IMAP folder, it'll stay on the server. If you've got a storage quota and high enough email volume, this could be an issue. For me, my quota grows faster than my archive, so it's a non-issue. The thing I really love about it is that my archives follow me from computer to computer without any real effort on my part. Considering how many machines I use and all the horror stories I hear getting mail databases to actually transfer correctly, this is a big deal.

comment Any reason to turn off wifi when connected by cable to network on A/C power for MBPr
@M0sthated Keeping wireless on but not connected is actually more secure than on and connected to a network as there are fewer paths in to your computer. The OP specifically mentioned being on A/C power, although it's worth noting that if they were not, then disabling wi-fi when it's not needed would conserve battery life.

comment Updating to iOS 6.1 disables cellular FaceTime?
Sorry, I missed that in AT&T's blog post they said it would take several months to roll out, but sure enough, it says that. Source: blogs.att.net/consumerblog/story/a7786791 It still seems strange to me that it was enabled for you, and now it is not.

comment What are the requisites for RAM in a MacBook?
Is this a retina or non-retina model? On non-retina, any 1600 MHz DDR3 SODIMM will work. If it's retina, the RAM is soldered to the board and cannot be replaced.

comment Updating to iOS 6.1 disables cellular FaceTime?
Are you on an unlimited plan, or a tiered plan? As of Jan. 16, those on unlimited plans are blocked from using FaceTime over cellular. They just recently enabled it for tiered non-Mobile Share plans. arstechnica.com/apple/2013/01/…

comment Why is lsof on OS X so ridiculously slow?
If you have it output to the console instead of a file, does it hang at a particular point? I'm also on 10.8.2. It was taking 6 seconds for me, and I noticed it was hanging every time halfway through listing AirServer's open files. I killed AirServer, and the time dropped to 1.76s. Perhaps there's something on your system that's taking a long time to evaluate?

comment Why does my mac take 60-90 seconds to wake up?
If this is a laptop, are you leaving it plugged in overnight, or unplugged? If unplugged, the battery could be draining and forcing it to move from sleep to hibernate mode. Resuming from hibernate takes much longer than sleep.
