comment Is it Possible To Move Menu Bar To Applications
@Mark: tracking speed is not linear -- if you move your finger across the pad slowly, it'll take a couple of moves to get all the way across, of you move faster it'll go further in a single pass. I can get from bottom to top in a single (fast) move on my MBP 15", with the trackpad on anything except the slowest two settings (and even on the second-slowest setting, I can do it if I move my finger fast enough).

comment Is it Possible To Move Menu Bar To Applications
If it takes you 3 or 4 moves to get to the top of the screen, you might want to increase your tracking speed (in System Preferences -> Trackpad preference pane -> Point & Click tab).

comment How can I update the firmware in my router via tftp?
You shouldn't need to edit /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/tftp.plist -- the -w flag to sudo launchctl load makes it override that setting.

comment How to upgrade my Mac Pro to an OS newer than 10.6.8?
The MacPro1,1 and 2,1 can be upgraded to 10.7 Lion (you have to purchase a redemption code to use in the App Store). But IMO 10.7 was actually a bit of a downgrade from 10.6; they changed a bunch of stuff, and didn't really get it sorted out until 10.8.

comment Apple ID for employees having no credit card
You only get the NONE option if you're creating a new Apple ID account during the process of purchasing a free app. If the Apple ID already exists (but hasn't been used in the App Store yet), it'll require a credit card even for a free app. No, I don't know why this is...

comment How to securely delete individual files (documents) on the iPhone?
This approach to overwriting doesn't work reliably on flash storage, because of the allocation tricks the memory controller uses (see here). Basically, it may overwrite all "free" space, but that turns out not to include all of the formerly-used blocks in the flash memory.

comment Why is everything set to immutable and how do I reverse it?
OS X doesn't do it that way -- something else is doing it (and probably also created the bogus root account), and you're going to have to do some troubleshooting/fault isolation to figure out what that is. BTW, the root user you mentioned: was that in addition to the normal root account, or did it just mess up the normal root account?

comment Why is the Caching service in status PENDING, waiting for push token and never starts on OS X Server 3 (Mavericks)?
Does your server have a valid hardware serial number (see this previous question)

comment Download OS X App Store updates to update multiple Macs
Are both of the computers' apps licensed to the same Apple ID (note that the license agreement allows this if the computers are used by the same person)? Also, the "right" way to solve this is with a caching server -- would installing the Server app on one of the computers and making it act as a server be possible?
