comment How can I adjust the apparent color temperature of my display in OS X?
Here's a bonus tip: a command-line utility to set the display brightness (ie in lieu of the F1 and F2 keys). hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20090901021817717

Maybe I don't understand the difficulty, but can't you just set F.lux's daytime slider to 2700? When you say "sometimes", do you mean algorithmically predictable times/dates? If so, then a script would solve your problem. I think it's possible to write a script to force F.lux to a certain daytime temp (or nighttime for that matter).

comment Text unselected when clicking to activate Terminal window (OS X Lion)
Thanks again, but this can cause yet another headache: all the windows that are activated during cycling are also brought to the top (as expected), disturbing the stacking order of other apps' windows. I keep some term windows behind everything else, and would like them to stay back there when possible. Yeah, I'm picky. Nice try though.

Thanks. I knew about the keyboard shortcuts, but usually nothing beats clicking the window itself. If I have 3 terminal windows on the current desktop, Cmd+backquote may take me to the window I didn't have my eye on.

+1. It boggles my mind why they'd hide it in a web interface...

comment How can I install Adobe Flash manually or without giving root access?
Why is it not any safer? Can executables in the pkg be run when a pkg is installed? What would these look like in the pkg file? Btw, the pkgutil terminal util can unpack (--expand) a pkg file.

comment Is there a way to password protect individual apps?
@Austin you're entitled to your downvote of course, but I don't understand your reason. I think my caveats and paranoia sections should be enough to indicate that this is not meant to be a secure solution - it's only a deterrent. I added your caveat, but it's essentially the same idea behind caveat #2. Also, the OP said that he/she didn't care about another person reading "already retrieved emails".
