comment Mac Mini won't boot. Is it the monitor or the Mac?
@Nathan G., I will grant you the broken speaker condition. However with Macs that have a working internal speaker, muted volume does not abate the boot chime noise, nor does plugging in head phones. Perhaps this is not true of all Macs. I can only speak from experience with Macbooks, Macbook Pros, Mac Minis and Mac Desktops. Speaking from experience -- I have accidentally woken up children in adjoining runs when I tried to quietly reboot a mac in the middle of the night.

Do you hear a boot chime? Even with nothing connected, except the power cable, if you push the Power button in the back you should hear the Macintosh boot chime. If you hear the boot chime, then try a different monitor if you have one. If you don't hear a boot chime, then the mac is having trouble.

comment Clear thumbnails for renamed files
Did you convert them to some other image format using an image program or did you just change the extension? Changing the extension won't turn a JPEG into a PNG. You need an image program to convert it and then you can change the extension. I am not sure about your thumbnail issue, but I wanted to clarify at least that.

comment Create random playlist of albums not recently played?
When you typed Album my mind thought Song, sorry. I haven't purchased an Album in a long time. So this might not work for you. You could try changing "by random" to "by album" and see what that does. I don't have a way to test that since I don't any albums. I post example values (0 days, 25 items). You should play with those values to achieve your desired affect.

comment Problems changing drive icon
Ha! I was just about to ask that. I updated all my icons with new ones but I was unable to update the Time Machine drive icon because of a lack of permissions. Glad you figured it out.
