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.

Questions about Ask Different moderation? Contact me at daniel.ask.different@gmail.com

It's hard for me to consider anything in the Intel Age "Old School" when I'm writing this on a CRT G4 eMac. :-)

D'oh. I hadn't even thought of that route. Good call. So obvious, and yet I was so oblivious.

Amen to that. Isn't that often how it works? Can you talk in chat about this?

Public isn't shared via filesystem permissions. It is shared via a server process running on your machine. To see what changed, check "share" for a folder, then go to System Preferences » Sharing » File Sharing and see that a separate share folder in addition to ~/Public now exists.

Yes indeed. You either need to create a private network (the solution I outlined) or create an account on your machine to which your friends have the password.

Ticking, not tickling. Big difference!

You can share a folder by selecting it in the Finder, press <kbd>Command</kbd><kbd>I</kbd> (Or select Get Info), and check the box that says "Shared Folder". You will need to enable file sharing in System Preferences if you have not already done that.

You have several questions here. It would work better if each question were its own post. But let me try to take this on.
