comment Repair disk from single user mode (fsck fails)
The man page for fsck_hfs (on 10.9 at least) says that -r is synonymous with -Rc.

comment How do I install JDK 1.6 in Mavericks?
This answer gave me the missing piece to compiling JNI applications on Mavericks. Most other discussions, particularly on SO, point people to http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572 but that does not provide a JDK. The information in this answer led me to the correct item. So, thank you, very much.

comment Screensaver changes images too quickly – is there a way to adjust it?
@StefanoPalazzo Oops, I'm sorry, I never checked back here and didn't see your request until now. The gist of the answer is that you need to modify the integer value of the field JustASlide/mainDuration in the file /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Slideshows.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Con‌​tent/EffectDescriptions.plist. The units are seconds, and the default value is 3. Note that you will also need to change the permissions on the file and the folder before being able to edit the file.

comment Can you get blackboard letter N, R, etc., symbols for mathematical notation?
Thank you for making this comment; I was unaware of the Unicode Hex Input keyboard option in the input sources. This was a useful tip.

comment Can you get blackboard letter N, R, etc., symbols for mathematical notation?
You're right! The fact they're out of order really threw me, and the way the N, R, Z are buried in with other symbols makes them hard to notice even when looking at 2115 etc. Well, thanks for solving that.

comment How to control AirPort wireless radio from the command line?
Beware that it is not always en1. To find out what it is on your computer, you can use either networksetup -listallhardwareports or ifconfig.
