comment Is there an offline RSS Reader for Mac OS X?
Yeah, I get that. It's worth it thought after having tested it myself. It's pretty similar to NetNewsWire Lite thought (which is free, but without Google Reader Sync). Also I'm marking this as the answer now. It's not the solution I was looking for, but good enough for now.

It is checked (it was by default). Also I've actually just written a mail to the support address. It's a nice reader nevertheless and if I have to live with this little pet peeve, I'm fine with that. Would be a really useful feature for me though.

I've actually bought it just now, but it looks as if it does not download the images either. Just the feeds themselves. But yes, it looks awesome. edit: Actually it stores already fetched images until you switch to another feed, then deletes them, which is pretty useless.

comment Is it legal to use WINE to play PC games on Mac?
However, I believe that Cider is licensed to developers. Modifying it is unlikely to be legal. Also the previously mentioned games are pretty much as big as it gets (you could also add WoW and then you'd have almost all of them).

Not a guaranteed answer for the release, but it's very likely to be possible: tuaw.com/2011/06/07/how-to-burn-a-lion-boot-disc

comment MacBook Pro Dual LCD
Yeah but it's not the same is it? Synergy is pretty much an automatic keyboard-mouse switch whereas ScreenRecycler is using the second computer's display as a display for your first computer.

comment Can I schedule a periodic file permissions repair?
Well the only way to fix that is to get a software called "anacron". It's apparently available from fink. The standalone version was compiled for Tiger, so I have no idea if that works on anything newer. Also I've never set it up on OS X, but there's probably a ton of Linux guides for it which should be transferable.

comment App to Ensure Healthy Coffee Consumption?
It's pretty off-topic but the amount of caffeine that you can tolerate is highly dependent on your body build and the amount of caffeine you usually have in your body (as resistance build up). So I'd say it's almost impossible to get accurate numbers. But maybe you should try kicking the habit for good, then you wouldn't need it at all after a while.

comment Why do I have to drag my new apps into the application folder?
Regarding "or a place of your choosing": most extraction apps (The Unarchiver at least) can be configured to ask for a destination folder when extracting files.

comment Why do I have to drag my new apps into the application folder?
Well there's self extracting stuff, but that's basically a dumbed down installer, which - again - is a folder on OS X. Also it's fairly insecure to just let it install wherever it wants to. I suppose apple could have just wrapped up a file extension (say .appzip) which would be just a renamed zip file, which extracts itself into /Applications when executed, but I don't exactly know why they didn't. Maybe it's just for historical reasons.
