comment Can't install Homebrew on MacBook Pro, password field won't input
Are you actually typing your password when prompted? The terminal will not show any characters for a password entry (not even masked) but they actually are being entered. Type the password and then return.

comment Photoshop shortcuts only work sporadically
Yes, some of the UI widgets (layer opacity for instance) prevent hotkeys from firing if they have focus.

comment Installing Windows 7 without a SuperDrive in Boot Camp on 2010 MBP
+1 just did this shuffle to get my setup (SSD Lion boot drive + Magnetic drive with Bootcamp and OSX partitions) completed. rEFIt doesn't seem to have been updated in ages. Kind of a PITA, but after a couple of swaps, the procedure is pretty quick. Looking forward to MBPs that can boot Windows from USB - maybe the rumored WWDC 2012 refresh will provide.

comment Is it possible to install Flash on a jailbroken iOS device?
Aside from the lack of Flash being a feature, not a bug, first there would have to be a Flash runtime environment for iOS.

comment How do I convert FLIC files properly
Download the source, move it somewhere handy (~/src/ would be a good choice, ~ being your home folder) unzip it. Launch Terminal (Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal), navigate to that folder (cd src/ppm2fli-2.1/), then make, then sudo cp unflick /usr/local/bin (type your password + enter when prompted), then sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/unflick. Now in Terminal, type unflick, you should see: UNFLICK version 1.1c by Klaus Ehrenfried (C) 1995,2002 The man page for unflick should supply the rest.

comment What is the safest way to triple boot Macbook Pro?
Not quite as fast, and of course you need RAM for both the host and guest OS, but if you've got plenty of RAM, performance in general is fine unless you're gaming.
