Okie dokey. A recent post of mine mentions backing all your data up. Please do this! Now, you should (don’t should all over yourself) get a back-up power supply also. It is very important to make sure the the backup unit is rated high enough for the wattage of your computer. It is a well known fact that if you overload the backup supply it can fry your equipment. Ouch!
You ever have a folder that won’t let you copy anything into it? Or maybe you can read everything in the folder except one file? Well, you can remedy this situation either by using the GET INFO command from the file menu in the Finder or by using Batchmod. It’s a small utility that easily rewrites permissions. I’ve included a training video.
You ever have a file that is much to large to send via e-mail? Of course you have. Well, you can easily send a file as large as 100Mb by using yousendit’s service. Whomever you send it to must register to download the file, but it’s free both ways.
Most computer losers know they can take a picture of the screen any old time by either using the GRAB program in the Utilities folder or by chording some keys together.
So to take a picture of the screen her are your options:
1. Apple+Shift+3 (takes a picture of the entire screen)
2. Apple+Shift+4 (creates a cross hair to select the area you want to capture)
3. Apple+Shift+4 (once you see the cross hairs, press the spacebar to take a perfect picture of any open window).
4. Apple+Shift+Ctrl+4 and it auto pastes the selection to your clipboard, then paste it wherever you want it. This is killer, diller
