Have you ever noticed the items that you print don't have the same colour when printed?? That would be because the best colour for printing would be CMYK. There is a built in Digital Color meter in Mac that you can use to experiment around with this concept. When trying to work out the different colours represented by different Libraries you may find this handy.
Select the text -> make sure you are on the Home tab -> select the down arrow next to the A with the colour under it -> Select More Colors -> Move to the second tab in colours that resembles a couple of sliders (Red Green Blue bars) from the selection button next to 'Grey Scale Slider' select 'RGB Sliders', under the sliders you will find the Hex Color #
Today Apple released OS X Mountain Lion, the new Mac operating system. About a month ago, we wrote a short article highlighting a couple new features that we have been looking forward to with the operating system. Today, we installed Mountain Lion on a couple machines, which went quite smoothly. It took about a half hour to download the software from the App Store, then another half hour or so to install. Pretty simple stuff, which is great.
Then Came The ProblemAfter less than an hour of using Mountain Lion, we noticed that Safari 6 was missing one of our most common keyboard shortcuts: View Source (Command + Option + u)
As web developers, we are always in the source code making sure that things are as they should be. It is strange to think that Apple would completely remove this function from the browser. It was as if I was missing something. After some hunting, it turns out that I was.
View Source / Development Tools Are Disabled By DefaultUnder Safari » Preferences » Advanced, there is a new checkbox option to “Show Develop menu in menu bar” - which is disabled by default. Once enabled, not only can you view the site source, but there are a ton of useful features at your disposal. For me, the key is that they are built in and that I do not have to extend Safari with plugins.
The operation cannot be allowed at the current time because the virtual machine has a question pending: 'msg.vmxai-omgr.retry-abort.diskfull:The operation on the file "/vmfs/devi-ces/deltadi-sks/1453d3-4f-GSERVE-R2(1)-s001-s001-s001-s001.vmdk"
failed (Failed to lock the file). The file system where disk "/vmfs/devic-es/deltadis-ks/1453d34f-servername(1)-s001-s0-01-s001-s0-01.vmdk" resides is full. Select Retry to attempt the operation again. Select Cancel to end the session. '.root VServer
Solution was to right click on the Virtual machine, highlight guest and seect answer question where you get 2 options, cancel or retry. Cancel worked in this case.
Who would have thought a little region setting set to Australia would have such a major distraction to a simple wireless network!!! http://www.tp-link.com/en/article/?faqid=153
How to connect Nexus 7 to Mac (Accessing files)14AUG
Written by: Omar Haider
If you happen to have a Nexus 7 and you are a Mac user, such as myself, then I have found a fix, so you can transfer file to your Nexus 7 to your mac and vice versa. The reason it does not work, is purely between the protocols between the Nexus 7 and Mac. By standard, macs can’t comprehend the MTP transfer protocol. With these simple steps, your mac will be enabled for file transfer.
1. Download and Install the Android File Transfer for Mac. Once downloaded, drag the .dmg file into your applications folder.
2. Launch the Android File Transfer application and connect your Nexus 7. You should see a finder window pop up and your files will be displayed on your display.
3. From here onwards, just drag and drop files until you’ve reached your desired result.
4. If for some reason, the Nexus 7 is not recognized, then go to your Nexus 7, and drag down you notification bar and select MTP.

On advice from greater minds the way I found easy for me was to download an app. called dd-gui.app from http://www.gingerbeardman.com/dd-gui/ called : dd-gui-.zip
Once installed and opened on the mac. Download the Image file (Debian in my case).
Using dd-gui in the source line enter /Users/yourusername/Downloads/debian6-13-04-2012/debian6-13-04-2012.img
In the destination line /dev/disk1 and hit start.
A terminal should open showing that it is creating a file of 195000000 bytes.
This worked for me.
Thank you me brew
