comment Prevent from switching Wi-Fi networks
+1 to this answer, and re: the comment from @youri "I had to change to en1 to en0", apple.stackexchange.com/a/145351/8546 refers to a JAMF Nation post that may be of interest.

comment How to hide or remove useless network names from the wifi menubar icon
This answer could be a good for a different question, but it does not answer the essence of this question. The essence here is a wish to hide or remove the name of a network.

comment Which version of Mac OS X was the first to support RTL (right-to-left) languages?
OK … reputation to @mike-scott for the strictly correct answer to this question (about Mac OS X) … plus, I'll bounty this answer for satisfying my curiosity about Classic. Incidentally, Unleash Your Multilingual Mac is also in the Internet Archive Wayback Machine. Thank you both!

comment Which version of Mac OS X was the first to support RTL (right-to-left) languages?
Thanks! In retrospect, it's odd that none of the following mention language: Apple Introduces “Jaguar,” the Next Major Release of Mac OS X (2002-07-17); Apple – Mac OS X – Jaguar; Apple Announces Mac OS X “Panther” (2003-10-08).

Also: Why doesn't Microsoft Office/2008(& later) support RTL languages? (2010)

revised Microsoft Word right-to-left (RTL) support
Presumably 'want to write' (not 'want to right'). RTL in the title, and as a tag.
