comment Have there ever been malicious MacPorts portfiles?
@Fingebimus thanks, didn't know I found the lesser option. Hopefully the answer will apply to home brew as well.

comment How to disable logging to system.log in OS X?
@Mark Thanks, I'll look into how to catch something like that. For now I change it back to warning. But I get the general idea now of how to begin controlling the logs. It turns out the IO80211ScanManager was showing up in the wifi.log as well, so for now I just edited ? [<= Level notice] store to say ? [<= Level warning] store. Understanding that I'm not getting various notices, so far so good!

Not working... will try moving up along the urgency threshold tomorrow, starting with critical, followed by alert, and finally emergency if thats how the alc.conf man page orders them.

comment How to disable logging to system.log in OS X?
Your intimacy with this system is encouraging. At first glance I may still be getting the messages. Though it's quiet as I type. I'll refer to the asl.conf docs for now. Thanks for the suggestion! BTW, what is a HUP signal? Would you please consider making it a hyperlink?

comment What are Airport scan requests?
My battery life is disappointing, but I'd be wise to simply stop using Google Chrome before tweaking the system. ;)

BTW, if that's really what the messages mean, that's all I'm looking for as far as an answer.

Thanks, @tubedogg. Also strange that it does it even though I'm always connected to one.

comment So my Yosemite install is slow - what to do?
@trisweb I think these may be different issues, my messages are coming from the kernel. We should each post our own questions to at least let the search indexers gather the rest of us to a Q&A item waiting for a solution.

comment Screensharing slow, even over gigabit ethernet
@Ze'ev If you're using the Windows RDP experience as a baseline, they're just not comparable.

@JakeN Unfortunately, by searching the web for the errors/warnings and hoping someone else has had the issue already.

@Buscar웃 I believe it delivers 5V at 1A. I haven't been able to find what the Mac does, so I'm asking here.

comment Dictionary not remembering my selected dictionaries
Thanks, but I'm afraid that didn't help (tried restarting with desired dictionary enabled, and also without to add as a fresh system). Er, did you mean a complete reset?
