comment What is barred circle icon in dock after install to new HD?
I get a barred-circle icon anytime I drag a a new app onto an app-folder shortcut provided in the .dmg, or if I drag it directly into /Applications. Logging out and logging in again fixes it. I prevent it happening in the first place by dragging a new app onto my desktop first, where it will get its proper icon, and then into /Applications. I've no idea why that happens or how it's related, but I'd bet the same solution would work in this case, too.

comment Why do Apple's latest MacBook Pros cap the RAM limit at 8GB?
I'd love to know - I can't speak to the difference from personal experience; only that they claim the machines will accept 2x of their memories. Here's a blog article from OWC about their 2011 MBP upgrades. It's certainly worth an ask.

comment Dropbox-like client for Macs to access existing FTP/WebDAV/CMIS storage
Mirroring. Netdisk wouldn't address your need for access to files when offline. They do say that the files can be kept available locally: "A mirror synchronizes a local folder and a remote directory such that they are identical (although you can have a few exceptions). This is done by uploading, downloading or deleting files." (help.nolobe.com/interarchy/#mirroring)

Do mean two mice connected at the same time? Or one connected at a time, exchanging them as a test?
