comment Swollen/pregnant battery on a MacBook (13" aluminium late-2008)
poking a hole sounds like a great idea, thanks! do you know if any fluids will come out? did you use a high-speed power drill to poke said hole? or maybe a laser? or will a nail going through the battery work just as well?

comment What's the max resolution for mini DisplayPort connected to a 2013 MacBook Air?
An adapter that costs 85$? It'll be cheaper to buy a better monitor with native DisplayPort support! :-)

comment Swollen/pregnant battery on a MacBook (13" aluminium late-2008)
Bold, +1! @bmike, you're being pedantic -- this is clearly a design defect, not a manufacturing defect per se. Batteries would last much longer if only Apple didn't charge them to 100% all the time (my ThinkPad batteries are only charged to 50%, and last for ages), and if only they likewise had performance limits for stationary laptops with prolonged CPU usage spikes that heat up the battery more than intended (and then after the battery is heated up as much, charge it to 100% ad nauseam).

comment Battery on white MacBook shuts off abruptly after 30% charge is left
It's a design flaw, and, personally, I think that Apple should have owned up to it, but, apparently, they don't. I have had a similar issue, and all the apple fanboys claim that it's too much to expect that the batteries don't bulge even prior to their rated cycle count! apple.stackexchange.com/questions/76797/… You should also look for some bulging, my battery had the same shutdown-at-30 prior to being heavily bulged.

This is incorrect information. It's the same as thinking that a 1-year warranty means that the product should expire at the end of the 1-year (or that if it breaks one week before the 1-year warranty expires, that it somehow shouldn't be covered, since only a week was left). The 300 cycle rating, or the new 1000 cycle one, are only meant to signify the rated performance of the battery, such as still being able to carry xx% of original capacity. Bulging and breaking the trackpad was NOT advertised as a designed behavour, and is not something that one should accept, either.

comment why login screen has a 2-second delay with external monitor?
Basically, for people looking into this, looks like Accell cables are the only ones that are compliant.

comment Convert HTML to PDF with page margins and hyperlinks
So, as per stackoverflow.com/a/29223418/1122270, with the gem being yanked, an extra step of wget https://rubygems.org/downloads/wkpdf-0.6.11-universal-darwin.gem is necessary; additionally, on OS X 10.9, sudo /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/bin/gem install wkpdf must be used in place of the default 2.0. And OS X 10.10 is not supported.
