comment Screensaver suddenly active
but what would cause it to suddenly change to 20 minutes? I've had it on Never for years and it's never been touched and always worked as expected in the past. The thing I'm trying to understand is what would cause my prefs to suddenly change? I haven't done anything to the permissions.

@CousinCocaine - can you be more specific? Are you suggesting that repairing permissions might have caused my preferences settings to change?

comment How to disable smart quotes
i'm guessing this is a bash script? would be helpful if you mention how and where this code should be executed. it's potentially very useful but less so without context

comment Where are crontab files stored in OS 10.8
@patrix - yes there are crontabs and yes I checked in /var/cron/tabs but they are not there in 10.8. As noted in the man entry they are in fact in /usr/lib/cron/tabs.

Nope, @fd0, I didn't. But now that I have I can see the answer. Thank you! Simple as this is, I think it's worth adding as an answer which I'd certainly accept if you want. If you choose not to, I will add it myself for the benefit of others.

comment Convert a partition from case-sensitive to case-insensitive
This works for me. Converted a volume with 500Gb+ of data in around 10 minutes. It's worth noting that iPartition appears to stall at the point where it says "Unmounting..." but in fact it is working. Be patient.

comment Which text editors support both tabbed windows & rtf documents?
Thanks.. I had tried that one before but failed to see the tabs because they are hidden by default. Do you know if there's a way to unhide the tabs without having to hover over the bottom of the window?
