The ssh idea is the best one yet. Pressing & holding power is not a good idea, I'd rather ssh in and kill various processes then do a "sudo reboot"

Thanks for the idea.

Aw that's nothin'. :) I hit that, and a window came up with nothing in it. Force-quit is far from a window manager kill/reset sequence.

Is there anything else?

Isn't there a no-holds-barred panic key??

Ubuntu is great because no matter what madness occurs on the desktop, even if all your apps lock up, you can hit ctrl+alt+backspace and it restarts or quits X, dropping you to a shell.

Unless I'm misunderstanding your post, it's not quite this way. Windows folder replacement is not the same as Mac OS.

In Windows, if you drag a folder "Untitled" into a location that has another...

iTunes rentals - 24 hours is not enough

Anyone else feel that 24 hours is not enough time to finish watching a movie you've started? It's good that they give you 30 days to start watching, but 24 hours to finish seems short. 72 hours...

Time Machine - a couple of easy questions

#1, it can back up to a second internal hard drive, correct? It doesn't HAVE to be an external?

I think it's because I bought an Apple Pro application. It must've given me Quicktime Pro as a bonus. Nice!

Suddenly out of nowhere, I can set loop points in QuickTime, as well as export to iPod, iPhone, various other formats.. seems like all Pro features are unlocked! Did a recent software update do this?

When typing on the keyboard, press and hold any of these characters: C, S, A, E, I, O, U, N, Y, L, Z, (I think that's it) and you get a popup with...

I'd recommend iToner over iFuntastic. iFuntastic hacks the OS and can potentially cause issues when firmware updates are released. iToner does not, from what I understand.
