comment Thunderbolt to VGA connector makes my MacBook Pro Retina very hot
Why, in 2013, do you want to use a (poor-quality, low-resolution) VGA monitor with such a sophisticated and expensive MacBook with such high-end graphics capabilities? Would you not be better served by buying an affordable high-resolution monitor that supports DVI, DisplayPort or HDMI? You will certainly get a much better-quality image.

comment Which iPhoto folders are least useful to save space?
It does not destroy any metadata. You make the decision to keep only the cropped and edited version of the photo and to discard the original unedited version. The only question begged is: if you went to the trouble to crop and edit it carefully, why would you want to retain the original unedited version? It does just what I want it to, and I like it.

comment Single-purpose app to prevent .DS_Store creation under Mavericks
Actually what TinkerTool does is to provide a GUI that generates many different defaults write files. It also keeps track of the ones that it creates, and it can de-install all of them using the Reset button, which puts all customizations back to their pre-TinkerTool state. This is very useful because otherwise if you create a lot of your own defaults write files, you may not remember what they all are and how to reset things back the way they were.

comment Apps disappeared since installing Mavericks
1) What is "Purge King"? 2) Did you make a Time Machine backup, or other form of backup, before you upgraded to Mavericks? Can you restore your apps and files from that backup, or revert your entire system to where it was before you installed Mavericks?

comment Is integrated VRAM included under `kernel_task` RAM in Activity Monitor?
I believe that the original wording of your question, as I read it, was "What is included under kernel_task?" and that is what I was attempting to answer. Since that time, you have reworded the title of the question.
