short version: I'm an early adopter, late to stack overflow.

Actually, I had an old profile, but was deleted for lack of use.

comment Are my permissions for /usr/local/ correct?
Of course, if I'm running a install script I'm going to give permission when asked. And that permission will give root access (probably) to whatever is dropped there. If I'm running it as me, it will never end up, for example, setuid root

comment Are my permissions for /usr/local/ correct?
A malicious script can leave files in my path (in /usr/local/bin) that will be run as me, and thus can read/write my home. What's the difference, exactly?

comment Decimal comma in Spanish keyboard layout
I very much would prefer this solution. But for some reason it doesn't work on the Spanish layouts, but it does on the Belgian. I'll fill a Radar and see what happens.

comment Decimal comma in Spanish keyboard layout
I prefer to keep the title as I originally intended. I don't want to disable it, just configure it differently, and possibly use a modifier key to use one or the other.

comment Sync iTunes U between 2 Macs via an iPod
More or less. You need to copy the whole library directory, not just edit two files. Looks like in iTunes 10, the library id is kept somewhere else I've been unable to find.

comment Please share your hidden OS X features or tips and tricks
the say command is a wrapper over the API to use it from Cocoa (see developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Cocoa/Reference/…) so I don't see see why it couldn't be used in a service. Also, the accessibility services (VoiceOver) use it as well

comment Sync iTunes U between 2 Macs via an iPod
I don't know. As I have big libraries in all computers, I always disable automatic syncing and selectively copy content to my device. Probably removed from phone, I guess. If you want to prevent that, and are in the same local network, enable Home Sharing to copy directly between computers

comment Install Tiger in VMware Fusion
it might not seem helpful, but it is because is true. That's why VMWare Fusion does not offer the option. However, I like your suggestion of installing to a separate disk.

then you're out of luck, you cannot redownload them again for free (like you do with apps). You will need to purchase them again.
