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

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.

comment Who installed this Emacs?
You want /usr/bin/emacs to invoke the default version. You can safely install your own programs in /usr/local/bin. If you want your own programs to preempt the system versions, make sure /usr/local/bin is earlier in your path than /usr/bin and /bin, but be warned that this creates a security hole if someone with admin privileges on your system installs a /usr/local/bin version of some other program with unexpected results.

But someone else just might come up with an even better answer, as happened here.

Reinstalling is a solution. This is, technically, an answer.

comment Is there software that implements John Siracusa's Spatial Finder concept?
Not saddened — I love Forklift for what it is. I'd love to use it alongside a true spatial Finder. It's clear that Apple has no intention of shipping such a product, so I'm looking for a third-party Spatial Finder to complement the fine variety of File Browsers out there.

But the key thing he called for was a binding of one folder to one window that always always always retains its state with regard to position, size, view options, etc.

And if not, seriously developers, given how many tech-savvy Mac users have been griping about this since OS X first rolled out, why hasn't someone done this yet?

It's okay to answer your own question, but you need to put the question part in the question, and then submit the answer as an answer.

comment Roll back to Mountain Lion but don't lose saved documents
I was also frustrated at the loss of the ability of the Finder to open folders in new windows, and the fact that full screen quick look images weren't scaling properly.

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. You did say that you need to "reset pd7's network setting," but giving some indication how would be very helpful.

comment Why can't I share my voice memo on my iPhone via e-mail?
How big is the voice memo? I've had problems with it when the file was too large, but shorter memos sent fine.

Your story is really helpful. What I'd love to see in an answer is does a site exist with a collection of stories about a bunch of users, how they used their device in a particular month, and how much data they consumed. Any maybe this resource doesn't exist. But it should, darn it :-)
