How can I get a list of "most played songs in the last month"?

How can I get my Mac to tell me what music I've played most in the last month? iTunes seems to only record total play count. I don't want to publish a record of my listening to an online service such as last.fm. OS X 10.6; iTunes 10.

OSX: universally disable print

About once a year, I actually want to print something. About once a day, I accidentally hit command-p when I'm trying to hit some other nearby key (command-o, command-[, etc.) I want this key combination to do nothing in any app on OSX. I can cancel the prints, but I want to prevent the print dialog from ever appearing. Ideally I'd like to do this in a way I could undo the few times I actually want to print. Is there some way to make this happen?

My Mac Mini flashes a screen on boot, then goes to no signal?

I have a Mac Mini (2007, Intel GMA 950 graphics card, 10.5.8), with DVI out. Out of nowhere, when I boot up I'll see nothing with the monitor reporting no signal. After it boots up, I'll see a blue screen, followed by my wallpaper ... then no signal again. I can VNC into it and everything looks fine. Changing resolutions doesn't do anything. If I unplug the DVI cable and plug it back in, it'll work for a few seconds and then back to the no signal. Any ideas? [more inside]

Help a Mac access music over the network stored on a Windows XP machine.

My wife just purchased a Macbook after using a Dell Mini 9 for several years. All of our music is on a WinXP server and shared out over the network. We want to keep it all on the server if possible. Importing the music into iTunes (over wifi) is slower and more painful than it is on the Windows machines, which I'm surprised about. [more inside]

Why Is My External Drive Unexpectedly Mounted?

Recently aded an external drive to my iMac for storage of photo files. It runs off a Firewire 800 port. I also use a Time Capsule. The external drive is mounted overnight via crontab for the daily backup run. When that's done, a script unmounts the drive. This works reliably. The drive, then, should be unmounted the rest of the time. However, the drive is mounted at unexpected and sporadic intervals. The logs reveal that this is usually, but not always, immediately following the unmounting of the Time Capsule after an hourly run. Not on every run, but perhaps on one run per day. In addition, the external drive is sometimes mounted in a way that appears to have no association with the Time Capsule. What's going on?

Where can I find a simple native tree pad app for Mac OS X?

Where can I find a simple native tree pad app for Mac OS X? It doesn't have to be fancy, with todo lists, rich text editor, tags, whatever, it just has to have a navigation tree, and a basic text editor for the tree nodes. The ideal solution would be something like KeepNote, but native for OSX, and not necessarily with all the fancy features. [more inside]
