comment Can I download applications/programs that are Mac specific on my Windows PC ?
Someone should reopen this. There's nothing remotely unusual or inappropriate about it. Just because you think it's an easy question doesn't mean it can't assist others.

comment USB 2.0 hard disk does not show up
And you're using a normal USB2 cable (as opposed to a USB2-compatible cable that shipped with a USB3 device)?

comment How to test if samba server is working without a PC?
Huh? AFAIK an iPad does not natively understand SMB, so you'd need to install some kind of SMB client app on it if you wanted to talk to an SMB server. I would think either installing some kind of media server, like Majestic (if you'll share movies, audio, etc), or using a WebDAV server (if you have generic files), would make more sense.

comment How can I start the mds process
+1 for moving the Spotlight database. Note that each drive will have its own, so you might wish to eject all the non-System volumes as a step in your troubleshooting. That, or rename them too (eg: sudo mv /Volumes/LacieDrive/.Spotlight-V100 .Spotlight-V100-disabled )

comment Export OS X Lion Blog / Wiki
Yep. Snow Leopard used a totally different system which was based on both an sqlite3 database including revisions AND actual html files. In Lion, the wiki was moved into Postgres, aside from attachments, so what Marie says is correct: much more difficult. Until someone tailor-makes an "OSX Wiki Postgres - to - something" utility, you're in for some trouble. Maybe the best bet is to find a CMS that can scrape content from a running web server, and then run it on yours.

comment Why is my hard drive still full after deleting files?
JDiskReport is also free. And it represents folder sizes as slices of a pie chart, which is more intuitive imho. jgoodies.com/downloads/jdiskreport
