comment Can I map a character to a different key?
I'll have a look at this. Is there not a native way to do this (i.e. without installing another app) ?

comment Mount Linux NFS share on Mountain Lion 10.8.5
I am also grappling with NFS - see my answer to your question below. Could you please explain the mount options in your example and why you're using them?

comment macbook air mail: how to configure HELO sent to smtp server?
I am using an iCloud account but I need to set up a different SMTP server so that I can send mail from me@mydomain.com but the identification that the mail app is sending to the SMTP server is in a format that the server does not like.

I've put a transcript up at pastebin.com/3bMjuQf5. I am not sure how to "try replacing the string for the mail server in Mail". Also a transcript of reproducing the error with telnet: pastebin.com/mqzauTgn

comment macbook air mail: how to configure HELO sent to smtp server?
It's on a different machine that isn't mine. I am not really a mac person -just helping someone else - I don't even know how to take a screen-shot! I have set it up to use smtp port 25, no ssl with a user name and password. I enabled "mail and notes" in icloud settings then added another smtp server (my ISP's) through the mail app's preferences->accounts screen so I can send mail using an address other than the @icloud.com one.

comment is it possible to directly mount a subdirectory of a smb path?
for some reason when I do this "mount_smbfs -N smb://myserver/myshare /Volumes/myshare" I get "mount_smbfs: server connection failed: Broken pipe". It works fine through the finder. I think I'll just do that for now.

comment is it possible to directly mount a subdirectory of a smb path?
I have found this which I will try superuser.com/questions/390813/… but I am not sure how to make it persistent (there appears to be no /etc/fstab) and I am not sure how it will appear to user in her finder.
