Safari Bookmark That Controls Scroll Position

In Safari 6, I have a folder of bookmarks on the Bookmarks Bar that I visit each day by right-clicking and choosing "Open in Tabs". I'd like one of those bookmarks to open to a specific vertical scroll position on the page in question. Is that do-able? [more inside]

Knocked Out Before The Bell Rang

I'm encountering what I imagine is an entirely rudimentary SQL error, but am baffled as to how to solve it. [more inside]

A Mac-Lovin' Cellphone

Having read this prior question, I'd like to pose something similar in the hope that six months of iSync 2.1 experience will better inform the answer. I'm looking for a phone that painlessly syncs with iSync 2.1, preferably via Bluetooth. I'm not interested in email access, or a camera, or any sort of browsing. Bonus points for T-Mobile affiliation.

Manually Managing an iPod in iTunes 5

I have iTunes 5 installed on two machines, one at work, one at home, with my iPod set to sync automatically to the iTunes library on my home machine. When using iTunes 4.x, I was able to attach my iPod to my work machine and then configure the iPod (in the iTunes preferences) to 'manually' update, rather than automatically, enabling me to play files directly off my iPod on my work machine. When I returned to my home machine, I would switch the home machine's iTunes/iPod settings back to 'update automatically', causing iTunes to update the files on the home machine with a new Last Played date and Play Count. iTunes 5, however, seems to have a bug in this regard: it notes a random 10 or 15-song selection of tracks played via the work machine's iTunes 5, but that's all. A day's worth of listening to tracks isn't logged as played, messing up Smart Playlists that grab music I haven't heard in a while. 1) Is this unusual or universal 2) Any fixes? [more inside]

iPod Screen

Horror of horrors, I dropped my iPod Mini face down onto a hardwood floor, and the screen is now dead. Everything else seems to be fine (audio feedback when using the scroll wheel is present, the unit plays, mounts, etc.), and the screen itself isn't cracked. Apple has told me that they would be happy to sell me another, but beyond that they don't have much else to say. What are my options? Has anyone used and been happy with a third party repair service?

OS X Login Screen Sleep

How can I control the amount of time before my G5 sleeps while at the log-in screen? My computer has two user accounts, both of which are set to never sleep. I'd like to set things up so that the computer will go to sleep 10 minutes after logout. Detailed steps for any sort of Terminal wonkery would be greatly appreciated.
