comment Is there a way to make some application have different resolution on a Retina Macbook Pro?
No, so far as I know, you can't do that.

As in have different applications running at different resolutions at the same time?

comment How can I access a remote machine via SSH from behind a proxy?
Basically, that trace tells us that data from your computer to the server's port 22 is being refused by whatever machine it's ending up at. There are numerous things that could cause this. Here are some more questions to help pinpoint the exact cause: Can you SSH from the server to itself? If not, then perhaps the SSH daemon isn't running, or it's on a different port. Is there a firewall on the server itself or on the path in-between that could be eating the connection attempt? Your trace leads me to believe you gave a domain name to SSH. Is it resolving to the correct IP address?

comment Should the Sudden Motion Sensor be disabled with a hybrid hard drive?
Is there any actual evidence that the sudden motion sensor damaged that SSD? The Intel SSD 320 had a firmware bug and was perfectly capable of breaking itself without any help from the sudden motion sensor. My company had one fail in the same fashion just sitting in a server.

comment What's a good Windows RDP client for Mac?
@Yitz I still run it almost every day on Mountain Lion. It freaks out if you try to run it at too high a resolution (so no full screen mode on my 27" iMac), but it's okay at 1680x1050, even though it's technically unsupported. That being said, maybe it's time to give CoRD another shot.

comment How to interpret outcome of Apple Hardware Test on Malfunctioning Macbook-Pro/Snow Leopard
I used to own an original mid-2006 MacBook 1,1, and it did have one RAM slot go bad. If that slot was filled (even with a known good SODIMM), it would kernel panic on boot every time. It was well out of warranty, so I just got a single 2 GB SODIMM to put in the other slot, and it was still working fine by the time I sold it 2 years later.

comment How to access my .ssh folder for Transmit or Cyberduck?
Transmit will honor your .ssh/config, and if you have a .ssh/id_rsa, it'll use that automatically. Just connect like you normally would, but leave the password blank.

comment What is disabling internet sharing on my macbook?
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?

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?
