“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 Why is 'xattr' not working?
@Mark: Don't worry about it. I has to do with my Python installation, which is fine. The question is simply whether it has a Python dependency.

comment Why is 'xattr' not working?
@Mark: That will do as an answer. The core of the question is whether it's a Python package, which I gather it is. (Simply installing it fixes the issue.)

comment How do I kill a process that won't die?
So it seems like Mathematica is just unusually badly behaved. In the end I had to force shutdown (regular shutdown hung). I don't have this problem with any other app, but Mathematica has had it more than once.

No desire to: the question was simply whether that was what was going on.

comment Which drive to I select to completely erase my system's hard drive?
Any thoughts on why I can't erase the hard drive itself. I do indeed fall into the default case with a single partition. Is the "drive" I've booted from to perform this process ("OS X Base System"; I have no CD-ROM) actually on that hard drive, and is that why I can't erase it?

This should be a comment on the original question, rather than an "answer".

@GEdgar: It goes without saying, I think, that that's not the kind of option I'm looking for.

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.
