comment User Made Videos on iPhone 4S
It's got to be possible, but I'll admit I don't know how, because I don't have a Windows computer to check with. Did you look at the sync settings in iTunes? That's often key.

comment Why isn't iTunes shuffle random?
The question isn't really why isn't it random -- it is why is the random sequence generated once, and then subsequent playings play the same random sequence. If a computer program had a function randomNumber(), and the programmer rolled a die, got a 4, and the function's body was something to the effect of {return 4;}, that would be a true random number reporting function, but not a random number generating function.

comment How can I send a mail message later?
Out of curiosity, do you think this is a better idea than setting an iCal alarm that automatically sends the message? If one is already depending on iCal, why not let iCal do all the work?

@Reid If I could think of how to do that, I'd post it as an answer, not a comment. :-)

comment Very strange me.com/iCloud email behavior
When you say "alpha-only" characters, you mean [A-Za-z]? No punctuation or anything? Diacritics? Unicode? Just ASCII upper and lower case letters before the @ sign? Curiouser and curiouser.

comment Best practices for mounting Linux filesystems on OS X over the Internet
Now that the question has migrated, I expect you'll get the opposite of "use the command-line or GTFO" -- the command line is a great tool to fall back on when necessary, but Mac users would generally prefer a solution that works in the Finder. I wish I knew one to post as an answer for you, but welcome to the site.

comment How to limit my Mac's exposure to malware?
For maximum security, unplug your machine. Machines that are powered down and have no connection to any input devices generally avoid malware. Sadly, anything that can serve as a source of desirable input can also serve as a source of undesirable input. As the answers below correctly observe, there are many practices that improve security, but it's all a trade-off: maximum security is completely unusable, and maximum usability compromises security. What trade-off is right for you may not be the right answer for someone else (which doesn't mean this isn't a good question -- it is).

comment Webcam for Mac Mini with Zoom?
Hardware recommendations like this are on-topic here; asking "what should I buy" is off-topic, but asking about what products with feature x is on-topic.
