comment Is it possible to disable forced monospace in Terminal.app?
This is a good one, I can't find a way to disable it. Why would you want to though? Many terminal programs depends on fonts being monospaced in order to properly display tables and data.

comment Install Windows on MacBook Pro, without OS X
I've been using mavericks on a 2006 white plastic macbook since a few weeks after release, and it's outstandingly responsive. The mavericks RAM compression feature is completely indispensable and breathes new life into old hardware.

Pirating 10.8 to be able to install Mavericks via the app store is the way to go IMO.

comment What is the best way to connect a MacBook Pro to a Samsung TV set?
HDMI might be ABLE to transmit audio, but the Mini-Display port doesn't, so unless you have a native HDMI port, audio will not work.

He mentioned that his mac has mini dvi, which isnt present on any models with thunderbolt (afaik). Thunderbolt is a combination of PCIe and minidisplay port. The regular adapters to HDMI use the mini-display port portion of the protocol, which does not carry audio
