comment How do I get a lone missing app to appear in Spotlight searches?
This seems to work. I'll keep an eye on it and be back if the problem reappears (e.g., following an update of the app). How this occurred remains a mystery though (and how Wolfram managed to accomplish it when no other app in all the years I've used a Mac — and all the hundreds of apps I've used — has shown this odd behavior)!

comment How do I force iOS Reminders to sync?
This just specifies what reminders to sync. It will not reliably actually cause them to sync.

comment Free .CSV text file editor for Mac OS X?
Numbers doesn't really edit CSV. It imports and exports them, which is a much more awkward (and often useless) workflow.

comment Disappearing and reverting events in Calendar
@Tetsujin: Starbucks is no better. And I can confirm that at least in one case (there could be many others undiscovered) the reversion happened after more than an hour (perhaps days) and — weirdly — if I try to change it to what it should be, I get a suggested edit that corresponds to what it was, but if I choose that, I'm unable to apply it!

Any idea what version (of iOS and OS X) this appeared in?

comment Disappearing and reverting events in Calendar
I've done that several times. It has no effect (nor do updates, killing processes, or even machine transfers).

comment Disappearing and reverting events in Calendar
I don't think so. If so the issue isn't on my side. I have fast reliable network connectivity. It does feel line a sync issue, but the problem seems to be on the Apple end of things. I've logged out and back in again, and this has persisted across several OS X upgrades (and one machine transfer).

Using the Java Updater: it notified me of the update and I accepted it.

FWIW, the same collection of e-mail accounts works fine on iOS 9 Mail.

comment Repeated crashes of 'suggestd'
@MichaelDautermann: Wow, I hope that's not the only fix. I'm reluctant to mess with what Apple just locked down. I worry will create other problems down the road.

Is there no other way other than rm -f?

comment How do I force the Trash to empty on El Captan?
Not =, but it was (almost always) possible to accomplish an empty when nothing else world work. What do you mean by "force empty"?

Please edit the accepted answer with this updated information. It's not really an answer of its own.

comment Is there a reason to leave WebGL disabled in Safari?
@bmike: Edited to focus on why one might want to leave it disabled (rather than Apple's motivations).

comment Is there a reason to leave WebGL disabled in Safari?
@bmike: What makes this an opinion based question? There might be a reason and it's reasonable to ask for one.
