Renew a DHCP lease - Mac OS X Hints
Renewing a DHCP lease via the Network System Preference Pane has the advantage of not dropping the connection, unlike switching the interface to BOOTP and back to DHCP. This command mimics that behavior.

It seems that the button creates a key in SystemConfiguration that notifies it to refresh the configuration. We can create that key using the following command (changing en0 for the relevant interface):
echo "add State:/Network/Interface/en0/RefreshConfiguration temporary" | sudo scutil

How To Edit Your PATH Environment Variables On Mac OS X
If you are new to Mac OS X, you may need to know how to edit your PATH. The good news is that this is an easy task on Mac OS X.

The recommended way is by editing your .bash_profile file. This file is read and the commands in it executed by Bash every time you log in to the system. The best part is that this file is specific to your user so you won’t affect other users on the same system by changing it.

What is WindowServer? - Mac Forums
kernel_task is the first process that is run by the kernel (core of the OS) during system startup. It is responsible for system initialization and starting up further process in the system init process. I'm not sure if it does anything after system startup - it may well be what controls basic operations such as disk / file access, etc, which make the computer do its thing. I'm not really sure if that stuff is in kernel_task or if it's buried deeper within the kernel itself. But rest assured that this process is vital to your machine being able to do anything at all!

WindowServer draws everything you see on the screen. It acts as a mediator between applications that want to draw on the screen and the graphics hardware. When an application wants to draw something, it establishes a connection with WindowServer, tells WindowServer what to draw, and WindowServer handles the drawing / compositing / Quartz Extreme hardware acceleration to finally produce what's seen on the entire screen.
