Drop it, get a usenet client or subscribe the mailing list (the 
newsgroup and the ml are bridged IIRC).

That man probably doesn't try to solve other people's issues.

That will affect your session environment (that is separated from your 
terminal environment), but since PyCharm doesn't pick a Python 
interpreter from PATH but rather let the user explicitly select one 
you're more intersted in just selecting a correct interpreter.

I forgot to mention it but I'm on Mavericks and downloaded the latest 
PyCharm just to check you issue, I never used it and just followed the 
new project wizard that asked me to select a python interpeter or to 
create a virtualenv.

Still you took the time to write the message I'm replying to, that 
won't help you much, rather than running
import sys
in your project, that would provide more information about your issue.
