comment Updating everything installed through Homebrew on Mountain Lion
I seen no reason why this is closed as off topic: the FAQ specifically states that "third-party hardware and software for Apple products" is in scope, and this isn't a programming question. In fact, it's a useful question with a useful answer.

comment How do I properly uninstall Kensington TrackballWorks from OSX Lion?
That's a very good point. Thank-you. As it was, I looked in the BOM for the TrackballWorks software to find all the things it installed and noticed that it did, in fact, provide an uninstaller. So, either way I would be able to clean up everything it left (either by removing everything listed in its BOM, or just using the uninstaller app).

I understand the explanation for why my question was closed, but another recent one (apple.stackexchange.com/questions/34381/…) is still open and has answers; what is the important difference between my question and the other?

comment Driver software for Kensington Turbo Mouse Pro on 10.7
I also found that TrackballWorks did not work with my model of the Expert Mouse Pro, model K64213, and now I'm struck trying to figure out how to uninstall (thoroughly) this TRackballWorks software.

comment Using grep on Mac-style text files
If you don't want to actually change the content of the source files themselves, this answer is better as it does the translation in-stream rather than hack the original file. Nice!

comment How do I start TextEditor from the command line?
Notice that I'm not sure that the convention of passing the file name argument directly to the application's name on the command line may not work for all applications. Only applications that are built to accept filenames on the command line as valid arguments for opening will work this way. I think that the more general open command uses a more thorough method to get an application to "open" the file argument passed to the open command (i.e. it depends on the same functionality by which the Finder's "double click to open" action works).

Both Nathan and mipadi provide answers, but I think they're only partial answers, so I added one. I'm not sure if it would have been better to combine their responses somehow, and if so, how to have done that.
