comment How can I add a due date to OS X Reminders?
I used Automator, but my problem was that I shouldn't have included the Get specified text action item; I needed this running in Automator, but didn't when running the workflow.

comment How can I add a due date to OS X Reminders?
This is really great. I'm wondering if I could add a "Get Specified Text" command in front so that the reminder will have the name of the text I have highlighted. I can get the text but can't figure out how to pass it into the apple script

I used this same flash drive to do a clean install on a 2012 MacBook Pro two weeks ago.

Fine. I have 10.8 available also. Is this why the disk is unrecognized?

comment Repair Permissions messed up network preferences
I did a clean install, and everything now works. An interesting thing, though. I noticed that MacPorts was being seen by the system as a user. This may explain some other problems that I was having but that were not critical.

Good to know I'll try it out in a few days, and give you a +1 and a check if it works. I'm on Lion 10.7.5

I have been considering upgrading to 10.8. What are the odds that a clean install would fix the problem?

I don't know how I would go about doing this.
