comment Mac OSX microphone input volume level auto-adjusts - can it be disabled?
That was the issue for me as well. The odd thing was that I was using GoToMeeting at time. This seems to happen in the background whether you're on a call or not.

comment How to get rid of firewall “accept incoming connections” dialog?
Downvoted since this is not really an option in many cases. user465139's comment is more appropriate. Though still a security risk--it is at least less than allowing all apps in/out.

comment Is there a free, lightweight text editor that isn't text-only but also isn't a heavyweight IDE?
I know this is an old thread. now that Sublime Text 2 is out, (with 3 on the way--released as a blazingly fast and stable beta in fact) I'd say it takes the cake for me as well.

comment Where is a dmg file mounted?
You can also drag them to the spotlight search box and it'll expand the full path there.

But there's soooooo much value in learning vim. You can pretty much use it anywhere anytime. And it does basically everything.

comment Quadruple contacts on my iPhone 4S
This also happened to me while using Google Sync. I just go in and merge the contacts in GMail every once in a while.

comment How can I achieve page-up and page-down in OS X?
On OS X 10.6.8 I get about a 3-line scroll w/ opt+arrow versus actual PgUp PgDn behavior with the fn+arrow.

comment How do I change a username? (shortname and home folder)
You should probably run the "Repair Permissions" task in Disk Utility after performing this action. Since the Unix user ID will be different after deleting and creating a new user.

@alopix you did not state that "free" was one of your requirements. So if the price tag and the fact that it has a rather plain interface are your only complaints then I'd say it wins.

comment Is it bad that my MacBook Air is passing me electricity?
@fnurl the same is true for US style plugs. Extension has ground, wall-wart adapter does not.

I like that it's more granular than the XCode tool mentioned in the accepted answer. Thanks for the suggestion.

comment iPhone alarm clock sometimes doesn't work
In my experience, and also that of my friends who are also iPhone users, we have collectively experienced push-notification-related alarm failures. Where the alarm will not sound and the alarm dialog will not appear for as long as a push notification is left on the screen. This is repeatable by allowing a push notification to appear prior to the alarm's designated time. Do not dismiss the push notification and wait until after the alarm was to sound. Now dismiss the push notification, your alarm will either sound now, or not sound at all, and finally appear on screen.

comment What's the point of the 60W Apple MagSafe replacement charger?
I like where your head is at. I have a 60W MB adapter which has all but melted under the loads I frequently subject it to. Such as charging, compiling, and ripping a DVD (DVD read + video transcode) all at once.
