Diereses prevent diphthongs; support diacritics awareness

--

Hi. My name is Daniel.

I'm mostly active on Ask Different, where I'm now a moderator◆, but I sometimes visit some other Stack Exchange sites (more to read than anything else).

I first got into computers in 1982, and learned to program on an Apple //+. Switched to Mac in 2003. I'm not a computer pro; it's just a hobby. I hope any of my questions or answers are helpful.

comment How would I make a keyboard shortcut to *maximize* the current window?
What version of the OS are you running? If Lion, by maximize, do you mean full screen mode, or just the biggest possible window in regular screen mode?

Edited to add sort by track number tip -- that can keep it from working

Ironically, my most reliable optical drive is the tray drive on my eMac. Much better than any more recent slot drives, and my Air doesn't have an optical drive.

I find this so hard to believe. Could my senses deceive me this much?!? Processors don't process slower when they are older?

comment Does daisy chaining FireWire 800 and 400 cause all devices to use 400 speeds?
@AdamDavis, do you have any sources on this? I ask because I've read your position on a number of web sites, but I've also read quite a few people claiming their personal testing shows that FW400 anywhere in the chain slows the whole chain to FW400 speed.

comment Does daisy chaining FireWire 800 and 400 cause all devices to use 400 speeds?
A canonical answer to this would be a good thing; I've found many posts on various tech discussion web sites asserting both sides of the argument, claimed to be backed up by personal testing.

comment What functionality of iOS can be accessed from the lock screen?
It shouldn't produce a bunch of partial answers; a good answer will include a canonical listing (with sources) of what can be accessed from the iOS lock screen. There is a right answer to this question.

comment Is there a similarly fast alternative to Crtl + Shift + Eject for new Macbook that lack eject keys?
Answers on Ask Different need to be more than just a link. It's okay to include a link, but please summarize or excerpt it in the answer. The idea is to make the answer stand alone.

That's an Easter Egg specially planted for people who want the menu bar on the side. Shhh, don't tell anyone.
