comment What is the keyboard combination for the ⌘ symbol?
@theOther A long time ago I created a website that can help you with this: mackeys.info For example, enter "Shift Cmd Up". (Nowadays, I use a custom keyboard layout that allows me to type these symbols directly.) Oh, and the boxes around the symbols are just styling, added through CSS.

comment How can I view the raw XML of an RSS feed in Safari (or Reeder)?
@GaryHam “You do not need the quotes on the url if it is properly formed and has no spaces.” Yes you do — for example, if it contains an ampersand (&) symbol. It’s easiest to just always use the quotes.

comment Keyboard response rate is too low, and character suggestion popups appear periodically
Related: to set a [blazingly fast keyboard repeat rate](mths.be/osx), use defaults write NSGlobalDomain KeyRepeat -int 0 and reboot. This probably doesn’t help in your situation, though.

Both symbols in your question are U+007E TILDE; they’re identical.
