Bit of web spinning -- static pages.

Bit of perl scripting.

Compared to most of the people on this site, I'm woefully ignorant. But at least I try to be polite.

comment How can I view hidden files in the Finder?
One gotcha: This works only on your account. It is not a system wide setting. Took me a while to figure out that it wasn't working because I had run it in a sudo shell.

comment Software recommendation for FAST entry of equations
I will take a look at it. I expect good tools to have a learning curve. You didn't learn how to type overnight. Indeed, it took a lot of primary school to even use a pencil, and many of us still don't use it well.

Answer doesn't work. I can bring up the display manager for that screen, select the image, and nothing happens.

comment Software recommendation for FAST entry of equations
Good leads rsanchezsaez. Host math is a nice way to enter ONE equation. In tutoring, it's going to be more like writing a paper. E.g. In solving a problem, you will rewrite the equation in different forms several times, possibly with commentary. When I correct a student's work, I'll often want to write a comment, or draw a circle around something. This can be done on the PDF output. Two leads you gave me however: AsciiMath is something I'll look into, and LyX. Hostmath only allows entering a single equation. At least initially.

comment How can one determine which user deleted a shared file on OS X Mountain Lion Server
A final possibility is that you post a copy of the file, and keep the original in your own home directory. If I worked there, I would keep a copy of everything on a thumb drive that was not connected to the computer too.

You can set shared permissions that are more restrictive. E.g. only the owner can delete a file. Only the owner or a member of a specific group can modify a file. This will require some setup by your IT guy. But it won't help you with the past.

Apple and Unix based systems in general, don't track file deletions. You can add software to track this sort of stuff, but it slows down the file system a bunch (Every file system write turns into two writes -- one for the change, and one for the log.) Worse: This sort of thing doesn't help with Black Hats that modify a file (You know that they modified it, but usually not how. And just opening an excel file seems to modify it. At least when I open it it asks if I want to save.)

You can now sync over wifi. Seems to me that this isn't much different.
