When I was installing a fresh copy of Cygwin, I noticed that some tools didn't work as they normally would. They would bail out with an error.
C:\Windows\system32>dig dig: dst_lib_init: openssl failure

By default, Lion's new Launchpad application is what it is: it contains all the applications installed on your Mac. With Launchpad-Control you can configure which applications are shown and in which order. It's a very neat and handy tool to configure Launchpad just the way you want it.
You can clear the DNS cache on a Mac by using these commands (depending on the version of OSX you're running):

It automatically sets your status to Away, and sets a predefined status message, upon locking your computer (or when it gets locked via screensaver).
Just so you (and especially I) don't forget:
