My name is Mike Bradshaw. Please contact me if I can be of assistance as one of the Moderators of Ask Different on Stack Exchange.

Note, If you are emailing for help answering your question as opposed to help with moderation of the site, be sure to send a link to the question. Help me help you by asking a stellar question.

I'm often in the chat rooms here, but I'm also very much on the twitter as @bmike.

comment shutdown command - what can be wrong?
Also, you may have several shutdown processes running in addition to the energy saver scheduled events. I'd run a ps-ef | grep shutdown to be sure you don't have colliding events and multiple commands in flight to power down your system.

revised Can I download older versions of apps?
We strongly discourage two questions from being combined. Just ask the other question on how to load newer OS separately if that's also important

comment Mountain Lion Upgrade Internet Issues
I'll close this since it may need more troubleshooting and no one's been able to guess what your next step might be. Feel free to flag this for review or just edit in more details if the issue persists. That alone would be good information on where the problem lies.

comment Possible to disable custom Javascript keybindings in Safari?
Is this question about the site here? or about disabling javascript everywhere? I could move it to our meta as a bug report, but there's already several requests for this site wide. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/3245/…

Let us know if you have additional data, but this looks more like an isolated failure where we need to guess what you've done to troubleshoot this...

Is there a reason why you don't just associate your Apple ID with both projects so you can access the sales data directly?

comment Are there more robust tools than Automator to extract text from multiple PDF?
To avoid trivial answers like "yes" and "no" and perhaps, use Applescript to call an Automator app to perform the extraction, please consider explaining why Automator isn't the tool for you. The more "why" you can add, the easier it is for someone to answer. You don't need to do anything, though - someone might have just the answer you seek with the details provided.
