comment Is there a way to get gnome-terminal on Lion?
I would have to argue that the Mac OS terminal has MANY more customization options than the gnome one. You can pick all fonts, colours, AA, background colour, transparency, blur and so on.

Agreed, this is silly.

comment How to change Safari 6 Reader font?
One sure-working way is to delete the font Safari uses, and make a duplicate of the font you want named the same as what Safari uses.

comment Automatically removing Dock icons not consistent in Mountain Lion
Why can't you just use the drag out method to remove dock icons? Is this for some sort of scripting that you need to manually edit the plist?

comment How can I copy a Google search URL from Safari?
Even better, when you put this on the bookmarks bar, it's automatically assigned a hot key. By pressing [command] + [#] (where the # is it's location from left to right) you can open it. For example [command]+[5] will open the 5th thing on the book marks bar

comment Why does the menubar hide when I'm in iTunes?
I recommend a much better way to do this: uncheck iTunes's app bundle. No need for a reinstall, and app bundle's don't store any computer specific data, so it'll be just like a fresh install

That's what i was thinking, but idk if Automator has a drag-n'-drop block thingie to implement your own apple script code. I can't check right now b/c i'm not @ home =/

Off topic for this question; but can't applescripts be made into "Services" that can be hot keyed via sys prefs?

comment Reservations on buying a mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter
They have a cable that goes from DVI to MDP without needing any other adapter. Comes in 3, 6 and 12 feet varieties. ~$30

comment Reservations on buying a mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter
This is not the place to cut corners. VGA is an old, inferior standard that has terrible image quality (blurry and artifacted at higher resolutions). Instead of buying an adapter, you should consider a Mini Display Port to DVI cable, that'll act as an adapter and cable in 1, and is general priced the same as a regular adapter (~$30)

comment Does Notification Center have keyboard shortcuts?
Unnecessary. Almost everyone has a multitouch device, and if you don't like that, you'd know how to set a short cut yourself

comment Can a Mac OS X DVD that came with a computer be used to upgrade another computer?
I'm pretty sure it's because it detects the current OS. Have you tried formatting your drive and then attempting the install?
