comment How to truly disable Ethernet and Firewire?
Security people may want to check your laptop inside a private room while you wait outside. They may take it apart, clone the disk, then reassemble it and give it back to you as if nothing happened. This procedure may not occur at the airport but discreetly in your hotel room when you are busy with some social event.

comment iCloud on Mountain Lion: one account per Mac or one per user?
Although I understand that some icloud features can only be attached to a device, the concept of "primary icloud account" is not clear to me. Is that primary account visible from any user on the Mac? If yes, does it mean that app settings will be shared among users?

comment Repair disk from single user mode (fsck fails)
iFixit has DIY procedures for hard drive replacement. But you need an install DVD or USB stick, that you can borrow from a friend.

comment What is the best way to convert MPEG-2 videos to MP4 H.264?
I was refering to HandBrakeCLI. I never tried with the GUI to keep interlacing.

For colour, I have no clue, I am not a specialist of video codecs. For interlacing, if you don't explicitely specify -deinterlace option, it will remain interlaced.

comment What kinds of things should I do to maintain the performance of my iMac?
You are right about Time Machine. The other points do cover performance: Usually new versions of Apple software are more performant than the previous ones and rebooting an iMac performs all needed maintenance operations that are analog as the ones quoted by question.
