“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

comment How can I prevent “Open With…” from accessing external drives?
@l'L'l: As in the question: there's a noticeable delay even when the drives have not spun down. (Note also that, like most external drives, mine offer no way to prevent sleep, and ignore any system sleep settings. FWIW, I've got a periodic task that forces them to stay awake, so that's not the question here.)

comment What are 'com.apple.access_ssh' and 'com.apple.access_screensharing'; can I delete them?
@patrix: So: I shouldn't delete them because there's no reason to might begin to answer the second part of the question.

comment What are 'com.apple.access_ssh' and 'com.apple.access_screensharing'; can I delete them?
@patrix: That's what the "what are they" part of the question is about. Perhaps I don't. But I didn't have them before updating to 10.9 and migrating to a new machine, and they sure look like a way to access my machine remotely.
