comment How Should I Correct the Owners and Permissions in an OS X User Folder?
Exactly what I was looking for! Works if you are able to log in to the user in question and that user is also an admin. How about repairing another user’s home directory from another account? (the user with permission issues might or might not be an admin)

comment Wikis on OS X Server - How do I include or embed content from one wiki page on another?
The question is talking about something else, transclusion pulls the content from another page, it's the "reverse" of linking.

comment Fonts on external display (4k TV) look awful, sub pixel font smoothing gone haywire?
@l'L'l Managed to find the culprit read my comment above. It seems even though I turned Super Resolution off the setting resets to on if you turn off the tv and it essentially filters out the fine sub pixel antialias information that OS X puts out and make the fonts appear weird. Temporary fix, reapply the image mode every time you turn on the tv.

@KevinGrabher Managed to narrow it down even further. I think I've found the culprit. When you turn the tv on for the first time, this effect takes over. If you cycle through the Image modes Cinema, Game and so on it disappears. This same effect happens if you go Image mode, Expert Control -> Super resolution. Apparently this preprocesses HD input to scale it up to 4K. I'm already giving the TV a 4K signal so I turned it off. It seems that it is on by default, when you turn it on and you have to reapply the Image mode for it to stick. It's a bug! I've checked it multiple times, it's the same.

@Garex The wiki already answers on any interface available. Added an A record for example.com to my IP. Seems to work. I thought there was some checkbox way to do this.

@KevinGrabher Managed to zero in on the issue. It seems the LG TV has somekind of processing going on behind the scenes and it just activates even though it's turned off. If I go to the image settings and go into Cinema mode, or any other mode and the back to my custom settings, the effect is gone.

@l'L'l Tried it and it just turns on and off the font smoothing.

This is the native resolution. Going lower to something like 1920x1080 and everything is twice as big as it should be, and then 'yes' it does seem the problem completely disappears.

About the same, the sub pixel 'shadow detail' on each letter goes away, but still each character seems jagged as if antialiasing is doing something wrong. For example the letters 'l' and 'L' are nearly always supposed to be displayed perfectly, but here sometimes the upper part of the L is thiner in one word and thicker in another.

comment How to connect 4 monitors to Mac mini 2011
That is made by DisplayLink and they sell their chips to other manufacturers too see here displaylink.com/shop/adapters look for 4K in the small pictures on the right. They are 'software' adapters, they take 15% of the CPU per adapter to display that data.
