comment How can I fix Lion Mail's search functionality?
The link is now broken, so this answer has become more or less worthless (especially since someone else has given intstructions on deleting index files in another answer)

comment Keyboard shortcut to switch focus between monitors (from #1 to #2) in Yosemite
Yes, that works in many cases, but sometimes you may not have any apps on a screen, or switch to an app in another desktop on the other screen (so you'd have to switch to the current app on that screen then e.g. ctrl-right-arrow). Is there another way??

comment Remember window sizes and placement when unplugging and replugging second monitor
Welcome to AskDifferent! Thanks for the info, but unless you're providing a new solution, you'd normally put extra info into a comment on an existing answer or propose an edit with the extra info, rather than adding a new answer with the same solution. stay is already mentioned in the accepted answer...

comment Desktop icons have disappeared after using HDMI cable (Yosemite)
not sure it it'll work in your situation, but icons on my desktop are often not visible (I get a garbled image half the time too!). The way I cure it is to drag across the desktop, "selecting" everything on it. This causes the it to be rendered, and lo, there they are! In my case, they've not actually "gone" but arent visible (I can right click them if I know where they are).

comment Macbook Pro Retina Not Working on Battery, but fully charged and cycle count is low
old batteries I've known can still carry a substantial charge, but the voltage drops rapidly if you draw much current - looks like that's what you're facing, especially given the battery itself thinks it's cacuts.. @Buscar웃 to the ... cactus??

comment How do I do an “or” orperation for a search in Apple Mail?
That page doesn't talk about operator precedence - I gather it's NOT done first, AND next and OR last? Do you know if parentheses work?

comment How do I capture the log output from Airport Utility?
Looking at the same problem, I found (this oldish blog post)[idevelopsoftware.com/2011/08/…. Right now, I'm not into digging into that, but would love to hear how it goes.
