comment iOS 7: iCloud backup fails silently
Alas, it's not one app, it's several tens of apps now. If I have to delete everything before I can backup, there is no point in doing a backup any more.
comment What options does Terminal pass to bash on startup?
No, the terminal runs login -pfq cwilson /opt/local/bin/bash. Then login executes bash, but passes -bash in argv[0].
comment How painful is it to use multiple Apple IDs with the MAS?
Thank you, that clarifies things. I think I'm going to try to stick to one store for as long as possible, even if it costs me a few extra dollars...
comment How painful is it to use multiple Apple IDs with the MAS?
So if I have the OS and a few apps under account A, and other apps under account B, and I am normally logged into account B, I still get all update notifications for both A and B? And when it's time to update it asks me for A's login credentials? Or do I have to update the apps on B, then sign out of the store with B, then sign in with A, then update the apps with A, then sign out with A, then sign back in with B?
comment iPhoto does not recognize already imported pictures
If you do allow iPhoto to import the duplicates, then of course it recognizes them as imported and hides them; but as soon as you delete them (they're duplicates!), they show up for import again.
comment iPhoto does not recognize already imported pictures
Unfortunately, if you do that it treats the photos as not imported and does not hide them.
comment What tiny thing in Lion makes you smile or has caught you off guard?
The best feature of tmutil, in my opinion, is tmutil disablelocal.
comment When sharing calendars on iCloud, how do I show other people that I'm occupied, but not why?
I had no idea there was such a thing in iCal (assuming it's iCal). Where is it?

Note that this only affects whether a 32 or 64 bit kernel is used. Both can still run 32 or 64 bit applications, and 64 bit applications are always the default if the processor is 64 bit. However, the default kernel is 32 bit because, as you have seen, some third-party extensions don't work with a 64-bit kernel yet.
