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.

comment What's a good Windows RDP client for Mac?
That's interesting. I've been using that version since the day Lion (and Mountain Lion) came out, and I haven't had any problems. Quite the opposite, actually: it doesn't use Lion's native full screen mode, so it's actually useful on my multi-monitor setup!

comment How exactly does the new Mountain Lion filesystem work?
I have seen many articles like the one you linked that go on and on about "The new filesystem in Mountain Lion!" They present the new iCloud pane in the standard open and save dialogs as if it's some radical change in the way the system works, even though it's just a tweak to add the ability to use iCloud. It's no wonder people are confused. As a software developer myself, I have been completely unaffected by it.

comment Hide username from menu bar in Mountain Lion
It's not, but when I upgraded my MBA to Mountain Lion, OS X turned on fast user switching and the corresponding menu bar extra for me. No idea why it did that; I've never had fast user switching enabled on this laptop, and it only has one user account, so it doesn't even make sense for to be on.

comment MySQL GUI Tools Recommendation
Ah. You could always open the Structure view in a separate window. Certainly not as elegant as a true split view, but it gets the job done. I don't have any other clients to recommend that do that, though.

What's wrong with Sequel Pro's Structure view?

comment Password dialog appears when SSH private key permissions are set to 0600
Wow, that makes zero sense whatsoever, but it sure corrected a lot of strange behavior on my system. Thanks.

comment Why won't iTunes stream 320 kbps audio across a network?
320 kbps is a trivial amount of data for nearly any home network using equipment made in the past decade.

comment What OS X tweaks, hacks, or modifications couldn't you live without?
Or better yet, remap caps lock to act as an extra control key. In my opinion, caps lock is a much easier key to use in key combinations than either of the regular control keys.

comment DVI-D to Thunderbolt - new Mac Mini
By the way, the overwhelming majority of those adapters will be used for single-link DVI connections set up exactly as you describe. I'm actually using one to type this. You don't need dual-link DVI until you get up to 27" displays, which are still quite rare.

comment DVI-D to Thunderbolt - new Mac Mini
It's fine. Those extra pins double the available bandwidth by doubling the number of pins (hence the term "dual-link DVI"). Your 22" display isn't anywhere near high enough resolution to need that bandwidth. Also, DVI is two way communication, so the Mac Mini will know full well it's not dual-link and won't try to use it.

This is happening to me too. No idea what the cause is yet.

comment How to move only purchased music from iPhone
I'm not looking to sync, though. My iPhone already syncs with my iMac, and I'm trying to transfer the purchases to my MacBook Pro using the "Transfer Purchases" function. This completely ignores sync settings and just copies everything from my iPhone. I've got several gigs of apps, and copying them to my MBP is just a waste of time and space.

comment Is there an OS X equivalent to the web debugging proxy Fiddler?
Have you checked out the developer tools in Safari and Chrome, or the Firebug extension for Firefox? All three offer the ability to monitor HTTP traffic, and all can monitor a specific tab instead of monitoring HTTP traffic systemwide.

comment Drobo + Time Capsule
Thanks for your input. However, I'm not looking to use it for Time Machine data; I'm looking for general purpose shared storage.

comment Why is it that “Mac OS X Snow Leopard can't be installed on this computer”?
I have Snow Leopard installed on such a machine, so it can be done, but I have upgraded the RAM. Mine only shipped with 512 MB, which is below the requirement. They can go up to 2 GB.

comment Are there keyboard shortcuts for Home, End, PageDown, and PageUp in OS X?
For the browser address bar (and pretty much any text situation), command-left and right replicate Windows' home and end. As a bonus, option-left and right does the same as Windows' control-left and right.

comment Are there keyboard shortcuts for Home, End, PageDown, and PageUp in OS X?
The keystrokes Kyle Cronin provided are correct. Bear in mind that Home and End do not always behave the same way on OS X as they do on other OSes.
