Making Finder BeachBalls go away without rebooting
Authored by: Zeitkind on Dec 22, '11 02:14:13AM

I use my iPhone for that. A quick ssh into the Mac and a reboot -q is much better that a cold shutdown. HFS+ is journaled, but well.. You can also try to kill the loginwindow process first, it often helps to avoid a full reboot.

Can you recommend a good ssh client app?
