comment Is it possible to find out an app installation date on iOS?
Sorry, I don't know a better way. I just thought it important to point out the difference, if only to prod other contributors to look for better ways. It is quite possible that the OP really is more interested in the purchase date than the installation date, anyhow.

Purchase and installation are different things, though. But it may be a good approximation anyhow.

comment If I send my mum an iMessage it goes through to her boyfriends phone?
Did she own the phone before he did? There used to be a problem where iMessages followed the phone when it changed owners, but I thought that had been resolved. At least, it's been a long time since I heard about it.

comment Disable iSight Indicator LED on El Capitan
IIRC, you need to hack into the camera device driver to achieve that. I'm pretty sure it has been done by some security researchers, but I don't know if the code to do so has been made public.

comment How do I prevent X11 opening an xterm when it starts?
@Wyatt8740 I'll take your word for it. I don't have any suggestions for what to do in that case. If you do find out, feel free to add your own answer or comment. (Or if you need the answer but don't know how, ask a new question.)

comment Should I install iOS 8 on my iPhone 4s?
FWIW, I run iOS 8 on my 4S, and don't really see any drawbacks at all. Okay, it is perhaps not quite as responsive sometimes, taking some noticable fraction of a second to react to taps and swipes. It doesn't bother me, but others may feel differently.

comment Spotlight does not seem to work in finding apps
@Thecafremo I didn't want to post just a link as an answer, and didn't have time to write more. Fixed now.

Maybe the spotlight index needs to be rebuilt?

comment Newly installed Emacs won't open on Mavericks
What happens if you try to start the executable from a terminal? I.e., /Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs (assuming the standard name and location). Also, which emacs is it – where did you get it from?

comment How to check what's locking a file?
Just noted a silly misprint: Where it says “sudo is after all …” it was lsof I had intended to mention. Not going to edit it – it's too minor to warrant a bump to the front page.
