One Quickie

Silencing Macbook power chime (Unix->General)
The modern-day flutterby keyboard Macbooks make a soothing (?) chime when plugged in to power, even if the system volume is muted. If you don't want to hear that, you can do
% defaults write ChimeOnNoHardware -bool true
% sudo killall PowerChime
