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.

Legal where? Legal how? Better to be more prices about what you are saying.

comment Is it legal to develop iOS apps on Windows?
If you could show what search terms you used or what reference you think makes this against any rules, that would strengthen the question... Also, legal depends on location, better to clarify whose terms or license you are afraid of breaking since they can be commented on more generally.

comment How long does it take for a review to appear in the App Store?
@pacoverflow I'd say between 24 hours and 2 weeks is the range which all that I've cared to check have arrived.

comment How long does it take for a review to appear in the App Store?
I've submitted over 50 reviews and never once has one shown up immediately.

Please take this up on Ask Different Meta so several people can see the discussion. With 30k rep on SO can I presume you understand moderation and meta?

Thanks for your opinion about what's on topic here.

comment How can I download Mavericks from Yosemite?
Please take this up on Ask Different Meta - questions about running 10.10 apps are off topic. I'll change the close reason.

comment How can I download Mavericks from Yosemite?
Booting to recovery on mavericks (which is on topic) downloads 10.9 or lower. The dupe I linked to has apple's own instructions to perform an erase install. If they don't work, you should open a support ticket with them. I've heard of no issues with people going back to mavericks from Yosemite, so perhaps your aren't following the instructions?

comment How can I download Mavericks from Yosemite?
I disagree with the re-opening. It's about using 10.10 app store which is beta and perhaps isn't made for re-downloading the main OS. The trivial way to download is to erase the Yosemite OS and all data and boot to internet recovery where you will get an older OS downloaded. It's in the FAQ and covered in several places on the site already. I'll find one and close this as dupe...

comment How can I change the apple id of iPhone (stuck in update)
I've linked this to one of the several questions we already have on bypassing activation lock. You'll need to get the password back under control and then log in to release that device or seek support from Apple directly - they are very good helping people that forgot their password.

Intriguing - have you made any headway on this? Is it still happening?

comment Recover Yahoo password that's stored on my Mac
Indeed. It is a common authentication idiom across any client/server communications channel these days.

One question per question is the best for the site. Glad someone got you the answer you needed, though...

Would you be willing to document how you set up the RPi if I asked how to do what you have done here? sounds cool

comment Access to NAS mount during Power Nap wake up
As a side note, I even get those drive not connected errors when I have USB drives connected to a powered hub. I believe the OS just isn't handling connected drives in a repeatable, timely manner when waking from nap. I've considered disabling it as the notifications are basically a constant false alarm for me when I'm connected in clamshell mode to my monitor.

comment How to run Say “something” in background in AppleScript
@brianBlue Scripting means no code - but you could look at stackoverflow.com once you've gotten enough of a foothold on coding to ask there for help. I've had terminal scripts that run continually and fire every second in some cases when I need to collect data that cannot be done otherwise. Elegant is more about how skilled the artist is as opposed to the tools chosen.

comment What scriptable OCR Software exists on OSX for a paperless office
Please review How should I ask about getting a software recommendation? and edit this to describe what precisely you want the software to do and any limitations. Specifically, what scripting language are you looking to leverage?
