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".

comment Is there a way to password protect individual apps?
Wow, 3 upvotes in 4 hours? I didn't expect too many people to use such a hack, especially since you have to create one applescript for each app you want to protect. I'd like to hear how people are using my solution, even if just for learning new tricks.

comment How to prevent ssh from adding my key to ssh-agent on Snow Leopard?
The "AskPassGUI" worked. Looks like it's actually the passphrase gui that did the adding to ssh-agent.
