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

'Doh! Sorry. I'm looking to see if there's another extension that might serve the purpose you want.

comment Cmd-N in Lion Finder shows “All My Files” not home?
I guess you posted while I was writing my answer. But given that we have identical advice, I suspect this is the right answer. :-) (Great minds think alike?)

The linked document explains many of them, perhaps not in ideal detail however.

comment What's the best memory upgrade option for a mid2007 macbook running 10.6?
It's hard for me to consider anything in the Intel Age "Old School" when I'm writing this on a CRT G4 eMac. :-)

Instead of saying +1, @Jannemans, you can click the up button to actually vote +1.

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?

comment Selective file sharing in a public coffee shop
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.

comment Selective file sharing in a public coffee shop
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.

Any approximation of accurate is better than doing it all by hand.

comment Disable Inverted Scrolling using Mighty Mouse
Why post a picture of a wireless Mighty Mouse if yours is wired? A screenshot of your mouse System Preferences would be far more helpful.

Lucinda Grande, while eminently readable, is not a monospaced font, as requested. But good choices!

Or you could follow the instructions here -- someone else has already asked and answered this question, it appears.

comment How can I manipulate several security settings from terminal?
They all worked on my machine. I suspect control panel locking might be the culprit. I'll research this further.

comment The error “Keychain ”login“ cannot be found to store …”
Can you clarify what is the error message, and what triggers it? A screenshot would be helpful. Is Yahoo Messenger a program that you have set to launch when you start up your computer?
