comment macbook not working with home wifi
When you are connected to the network in question, Option-click on the Airport Menu in the menu bar. The important numbers are "RSSI", "Noise", and "TX Rate" essentially they determine if you have a "good" signal. It is possible that when the display was replaced, the antenna wore was not reconnected properly - do you have difficulty in weak signal areas when away from you home netowrk?

comment Disable text box with preedit text when using an input source and searching in Finder
In my case, using Vietnamese Telex, I get the box, when trying to jump to a file name as you describe. My box however does accept input, and after typing some characters in there, and pressing "return" the box vanishes and the search occurs as expected. A file matching the keys I entered is now selected. -- As for how to disable the box, I can find no obvious setting.

comment User can't login to AD bound Mac
For your second user, the one who cannot log into the Mac, but can log into the Windows machine - what is the output of tail -f /var/log/system.log /var/log/opendirectoryd.log You can get that by ssh-ing into the machine as an administrator, and running this command while the problem user is trying to log in.

comment User can't login to AD bound Mac
This is two separate questions and should probably be entered as such -- Your first user, the one with the keychain issues. Was this user required to reset their password after the policy change? and if so, did they reset it from the Mac or from a windows machine, or other agent?

comment How can I backup everything from iCloud Photo Library on Windows?
I was able to download files of mine form more than three months ago, with the correct file names - maddeningly, iCloud Photo doesn't show you the original names of the files, but I suspect that the files you are trying to download have weird file names on your phone. Do you have access to Dropbox? you could install on your phone, and use that to sync all the photos to your computer (Camera Upload function) and then delete the iCloud copies later

comment Multiple non-thunderbolt monitors to MBP-r '12
I think you can do it... DVI, VGA, and HDMI are all generally limited to lower resolutions than what Thunderbolt can do... If you had two DVI/HDMI to Mini DisplayPort adapters you will be able to light up two displays - the third comes from the built in HDMI port

comment Why are my earbuds making dolphin noises?
Set your phone next to an unshielded pair of computer speakers and then call it, or initiate a call, or do some data on it. Does it make some of the same sounds? Is your iPhone from AT&T or some other GSM provider? I have experienced many times where a GSM phone will trigger strange sounds in unshielded cheap speakers and headphones.

comment Need to merge address book files
Define "address book file" please... It is a backup? is it a collection of vcards? How did you create it, and with what version of OS X?

comment Why is the process named geod in my iOS simulator trying to access irs.gov?
Are you sure that LittleSnitch is providing you with reverse dns properly? I have heard of issues with reverse dns and Little Snitch. It is likely that you are providing location information to less nefarious folks than the IRS.
