comment New DDR3 Memory for Mac Mini
OP listed date of purchase conflicts with the processor specs (the only mac mini with a 2.3Ghz is the mid 2011). I took the processor info to be more accurate than the "last year claim" (it's more precise, and harder to mistakenly guess a valid processor spec combination, whereas any date given can be valid)

comment New DDR3 Memory for Mac Mini
I would strongly advise 2x8GB as well. You don't want to end up in a situation down the line where you have to throw out 2 perfectly good 4GB modules just to make room for 8GB ones.

comment Brute Force on Whole Disk Encryption
Is the password going to be english words only? You can try your luck with a dictionary attack, as it's a lot easier than brute force. Just 5 random letters (only lower case) have a keyspace of ~1.2m possibilities.

comment Can I safely charge my iPhone 4 overnight on a regular basis?
Even if the answer was "no," would you really change your life style around it? Keeping up with some phone charging ritual will be more undesirable than a more quickly ruined battery.

comment Clearing TEMP files on Mac OSX
What is the reason you're looking to delete temp files? 99% of the time deleting them just because they "seem" unnecessary will slow your system down until they're rebuilt.

sudo find / -name xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx 2> /dev/null is preferable tbh

comment What are the six openings on the bottom of the MacBook Pro for?
As long as you're not going above like 80 degrees, it really doesn't matter. Operating temperatures of these components are really wide ranges

comment Where is “All My Files” folder?
Just because "When you move files to this folder they end up in Documents folder." does not mean "All My Files folder is Documents folder." They're obviously not the same...

Indeed it is. What a strange place for that to be.

comment OSX Mavericks using up RAM
I've found the exact opposite actually (on my 5 year old MacBook with 4gb ram). Sudo purge is perfectly safe, but it's only really a troubleshooting feature; it'll make your machine slower than with file caching.
