comment Is there a way to get OSX to use more RAM and less swap?
I don't have proof that the VM system (VM or swap) is the problem, but I do know on my desktop I have 6GB of RAM, of which usually 2-3GB is usually free. When I switch programs, you would think it would be blazing fast because it's all in RAM, but instead, it takes 2-15s to switch back to something like Illustrator. I'm thinking similar things are happening on the server--something like the caching for MySQL or temporary tables. I am using top to determine the VM, RAM and swap usage. Any ideas?

comment Password Manager that allows syncing accross platforms
I've had the same problem for quite a while and I am actually thinking of building a solution from scratch that can be accessed from the web as well because I often find myself without a computer of my own, not wanting to install software just to access a password.

comment What is the best way to secure remote server/tool access from many locations?
It's linux support (although he doesn't mention it) is very poor. The client is very rudimentary and last time I tried, not very easy to setup.

comment Can you Recommend Free DNS Name Servers?
I have started having problem such as their servers not responding to new domains. I have also found their support to be very slow and the last time they got back to me, they said my account doesn't exist...I have over 100 domains with them!
