comment WiFi turning on when I have it turned off
@IconDaemon So this is just my Mac trying to figure out where it is? This is then part of Location Services then. Right? Come to think of it, when I used my Mac at home today, the WiFi was on, and when I take it to work after using it at home, I don't usually have to turn it off. Yes, I am on 10.10.2. Thanks for asking. And, I did clean up my Wifi network list. I also shut off automatically adding WiFi networks. I had a few "Free WiFi" networks in that list.

comment Cisco AnyConnect prevents Continuity from allowing Mac to answer iPhone
Well, that (what's the technical term? oh yeah...) sucks. I bet the Bluetooth network sees my iPhone which is why my Mac can spot it and tell me a call is coming through, but the call itself is handled via WiFi. I used Shimo a while ago when the Mac's VPN wouldn't work and Cisco didn't have a decent Mac client. Maybe I'll give that another try.

comment Network issues since upgrading to Yosemite - Unable to find local systems
That did it. Amazingly, if I am on the public network, and then use Cisco Anyconnect to connect to my corporate network, I could use DNS for the local machines. In fact, this is what I had to do when I worked with my Mac for the last two weeks. It caused all sorts of problems because Jabber/Messages and my Voip phone via X-Lite caused problems if I had the VPN running. This makes my life so much easier!

comment Network issues since upgrading to Yosemite - Unable to find local systems
Ironically, I'm also running a new Windows 7 PC via Parallels on my Mac and sharing my network connection. That PC, even though it isn't on the corporate domain can find the local machines that my Mac cannot.

Yes, I've tried flushing the caches. The DNS servers listed match the ones on my Windows machine when I run ipconfig /all. I was told it had something to do with Bonjour.

comment How can I remove the launchpad?
No. You cannot completely remove it because it's really a system service. Maybe this will help: technorms.com/18829/control-launchpad. This will tell you how to get rid of all the icons in LaunchPad and then fill them with only the icons you want.

I found a USB 3.0 cable at a local shop for $5. Works perfectly.

Yeah, target disk mode! I'll boot up the old Mac in Target disk mode and connect the two machines with FireWire. Hmm... Not on my new Mac. Thunderbolt? Not on the old Mac... Spend $30 on Thunderbolt/Firewire cable? Apple doesn't recommend it for Target Disk Mode. Target mode was the first thing I thought of too, but suddenly realized that the two machines had different ports. Life is fun. Ended up doing it the old fashion way: USB Stick Drive.
