comment Showing the current boot arguments in OS X
@jhfrontz the contents of the NVRAM don't change radically from boot time to the time you login. If you read the contents its mostly just various states the system wants to maintain between boots. The biggest changes occur when you start changing the system configuration.

@klanomath I could have sworn that sudo could prompt for a username? Or am I conflating it with su?

@klanomath it's been a long time since I used guest, but as I recall it did have Terminal access.

If you can open Terminal, try typing sudo killall WindowServer to kill WindowServer and force log out all graphical users.

comment How Do I Remove Duplicate Apps From Launchpad?
Don't delete the database. Instead use defaults write com.apple.dock ResetLaunchPad -bool true; killall Dock to flag the database for reconstruction, then to restart the dock.

Not a 10.11 feature, but I noticed that less recognizes mouse scrolling sometime around 10.9 or 10.10.

comment Where exactly is the Google Chrome sync passphrase?
It isn't my login password as I've had a failed sync on other computers, thus prompting this whole adventure. ;)

comment Where exactly is the Google Chrome sync passphrase?
I set a new one and it did not show up in my Keychain, so I made a note of it.

comment Where exactly is the Google Chrome sync passphrase?
I noticed "GoogleContactSyncService", but I wasn't sure if that was the passphrase. From what I've seen in the documentation, it the passphrase looks like it is supposed to be a randomly generated string.
