comment How do I extract the audio signal from displayport?
Two things I'm look for are: 1) not having one extra attachment every time I move the laptop from work to home. 2) Better quality audio. I hadn't thought about your suggestion, but it gets me #2, and it's better than what I'm doing now! But I'll still buy a MDP -> MDP+Audio cable if anyone makes one.

I didn't quite parse your first sentence. "On Mac keyboards the same key and key code is used for forward delete (⌦)." Which two things are the same? As I added above, I really want the key marked 'delete' on the key cap to do the same thing that ⌘⌫ (cmd bckspc) does.

Actually, the backspace key shows a left-delete glyph (block arrow pointing left) and the delete key shows a right-delete glyph (block arrow pointing right)

I just tried the keyboard viewer, (thanks for the tip!) It shows the delete key being pushed. So at some level it's a live key.

comment What are the differences between minimizing and hiding an application?
You rock! That's an awesome answer. I've seen this question answered before, but nowhere as thoroughly as you've answered it here. Now I want to find a way to make the yellow button do a "hide" instead of a "minimize".

It says "Classic Environment" is no longer supported. Does that mean I don't have Rosetta? I thought I did. I'm running Snow Leopard.

comment Does anyone have any tips or best practices for using NFS mounted directories?
I found another useful tip today. There is a flag in /etc/auto_master called "hidefromfinder". If you turn this off for /net and /home, it improves the interoperability between finder and the automounter.
