comment Prioritize bluetooth tether over Wifi on an iPad
Just curious, why don't you tether your iPad to your iPhone via WiFi? Bluetooth is atrociously slow and power consuming.

comment Mavericks Using Up All Available Memory
It's strange that you're noticing unresponsiveness at idle, but using a lot of RAM is kinda the point of the ram update in Mavericks. Free RAM is a complete and utter waste as far as computing goes: it's hardware you've paid for, you're powering, but is doing absolutely nothing in the present. Optimally, computer systems should use as close to full memory as possible, whilst ensuring that space can be made for vital operations. This is why Mavericks typically uses 99% of RAM: it detects free space and stores file caches to speed up the system. It's strange that it's not properly freeing though

comment Which is the best alternative for Dreamweaver in Mac?
It's too clumsy to have all these separate tools just to do one job. The higher level functionality saves SO much time. I love how powerful Vi's commands are, and it might be great for a quick edit here and there, but it's awful if your workflow is: edit in vi, upload via ftp client, preview with a browser. Coda's code clips and native PHP implementation alone are a deal maker.

comment Which is the best alternative for Dreamweaver in Mac?
Coda and Espresso are really where it's at. I think too many of these answers are from quick google searches and lack personal experience. You'll NEVER use Vi, Vim, MacVim, Eclipse or other editors for this stuff. If you take yourself seriously, you need an IDE with FTP support, syntax highlighting and automatic indentation, auto completion, in-line error messages, etc.

Well you're using a Mac Pro... you paid a lot for a premium machine. You're polluting that large investment with slower memory

Uhhh... You're Mac Pro is meant to use 800 Mhz memory. 667 Mhz works, but it'll be slower. manuals.info.apple.com/MANUALS/0/MA430/en_US/…

comment How to put a custom launcher in the Dock (Mavericks)
Ooops, I should have better clarified: You need to paste the image itself, not the image file. The quickest way I can think of to do this is to double click an image file (to open it in Preview.app), press + a, copy the selection and paste it into the image well

comment How to put a custom launcher in the Dock (Mavericks)
Why not use the built in terminal? It's really highly customizable, and you can make it emulate x-term. Terminal brings a lot of advantages like full screen mode, copy/paste with + c and + v. It also let's you build your own custom profiles, allowing for custom fonts, transparency, and even default commands ran on start (such as to start an SSH session).

You can change the icon of pretty much any volume/folder/file by pressing + i, and pasting any image file into the image well in the top left corner

comment Activity Monitor confusion
Try opening the applications in reverse order (i.e. open ActiveWindowCapture before ScreenCapture) and see if the opposite effect occurs. I think it has something to do with there being a single java process to "rule them all."
