comment I need a background process which redirects a link based on whether or not an external hard drive is connected
Sounds like a great task for cron. I have a cron script that kills iTunesHelper whenever it launches. Write a script that checks for the existence of a directory, then rewrites the link. You could run with cron it every minute without too much overhead.

comment Most efficient way to 'export' iTunes protected aac to FLAC (for personal use)?
Keep in mind itunes match maxes out at 256 bit, if your source is higher than that then you'll be losing quailty

comment What are good bi-directional, real-time synchronization utilities between Mac local folder and web server?
What about using dropbox. I'm assuming the server is *nix dropbox.com/install?os=lnx

Also note this is pretty standard *nix behavior and has not much to do with Mac specifically

comment 2013 Late Macbook Pro constantly mute completely?
next time it happens can you try running gist.github.com/dstarh/09d7577c333bf336e92a This will cause core audio to restart which could possibly be an issue. I have a similar issue where audio will refuse to play over airplay and this always fixes it.

comment iMessage on Mac works sometimes
@bassplayer7 I've got it set up as suggested with the exception of deleting the conversation (which I'd rather not do). As I said in my question, it does sync but it's nowhere near consistent. 20 minutes ago it was synced. Tried to send a message, got the red exclamation mark, clicked it, it sent. 5 minutes later the last 10 or so messages were gone and after switching to messages and waiting for about 45-60 seconds they synced up again.

comment Cannot access localhost after upgrade to Mavericks but can access 127.0.0.1
@MuffinTheMan someone just registered the domain localtest.me and put a wildcard for *.localtest.me to point to 127.0.0.1 . We used to have to maintain large host files for specific clients and we've switched entirely to that domain now.

Not an exact answer to your problem but try muffintheman.localtest.me You can replace muffintheman with anything and it will resolve. We use this A LOT at work because we use subdomains for switching layouts and behavior.
