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

comment terminal command say produces error
Well, if the sound outputs as desired then what problem is there besides the undesired error message? So if it makes the error message go away, the problem is solved, unless we discover more side effects.

comment How to safely charge your apple device at a charging station?
This post on another SE site suggests that this won't work because Apple polls the data pins to determine whether the charger is 'approved'.

comment Allow access to selected web sites only
Do you have a set list of sites you want the computers to be able to access or does this solution need to determine which sites are "like study island or Plato" (neither of which, I must confess, I've ever heard of)?

comment How does one type an “É” (capital e acute) in the French keyboard layout in Mac OS X?
@greg0ire That is indeed an obnoxious set of keystrokes, but it's a function of the keyboard layout, not the OS in general. It's 3 keystrokes in my keyboard layout.

@TomGewecke but see academie-francaise.fr/la-langue-francaise/… for a rather authoritative counterargument.

comment How can I increase brightness on Mac without Mac keyboard
My experience is that this doesn't work in general; only with an Apple keyboard. When I plugged in a generic USB keyboard, F2 did not adjust brightness and there was no FN key to press in combination with F2.

Well, I disagree not to muck around, but I am aware that it can have consequences.

comment Notification Center errors filling up /var/log/system.log
You identified the likely source of my problem, but when I tried this, now Notification Center doesn't run at all and I still get the error messages. So yes, this is related to the problem, but the solution actually made things worse, unfortunately.

comment Notification Center errors filling up /var/log/system.log
I'm pretty sure that I messed it up by fiddling with it before I had Time Machine running. Looks like reinstalling somehow is the way to go.

It looks like you're onto something! I have both NotificationCenter.app and Notification\ Center.app, with different dates.

Yeah. I'm going to be rendering for the next 24 hours straight, so nothing gets changed on my system until my first week video lectures are posted.

maybe the file is corrupt somehow. But the hash is the same as yours.

Now we're getting somewhere: it's not a permission error; it crashes with 2013-09-02 21:17:25.056 NotificationCenter[84032:707] Unable to load nib file: MainMenu, exiting even with sudo

@Buscar웃 What do you mean "who it is"? I know it's Notification Center, and I'm the only user running on the machine.

If Facebook gives the NSA access to all the information server-side, the encryption of the notifications becomes far less urgent, no? :-/

Can you explain why you recommend it? What does it do well? What are its limitations?
