I want to import an old wallet.dat into a full client.  How do I do this?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

Have a look here for a similar question that I answered.

I am selling in stock OneStringMiner boards, based on the Bitfury chips. Have a look here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=495536.0

I'd actually tried that, but apparently symlinks aren't acceptable to bitcoin-qt.

Thanks for pointing me in the best direction.

For my next question, how do I force Bitcoin-QT to rescan the blockchain without downloading it on an iMAC?

Close your running Bitcoin-qt
Open a terminal (Can be found by opening finder, browse to Applications and type terminal in search)
Type /Applications/Bitcoin-Qt.app/Contents/MacOS/Bitcoin-Qt -rescan
