comment Quick Image Editing tools for MacOS
I actually like IrfanView a lot. Used it for many years on Windows. Like Preview, most people underestimate just how powerful it can be if you know it well.

You can paste pieces back into a Preview doc: open the image you saved, Cmd+A to select the entire thing, copy and paste into the target Preview doc. The counter intuitive part is, Preview doesn't have a File > New option for you to select a size and create a new blank image. You could workaround this by creating a canvas in another image editor like Seashore (seashore.sourceforge.net/The_Seashore_Project/About.html). Export a blank doc at the right size, open that in Preview, paste, resize etc, and save your work to a new file. You could also just use Seashore, but it's an old project.

Not sure how old your MacBook is, but have you tried Preview, the built in viewer app on OS X? Even the older versions should be able to handle cropping and exporting.

comment High CPU usage by virtualbox running windows 2003 in Linux host
That's a good tip. Keep in mind it will limit Windows to a single virtual core though. Another good link for improving Windows VM performance: blog.jdpfu.com/2010/06/22/virtualbox-performance-improved The network tip has helped me a lot for a network-heavy VM, and the SATA tip is a VERY noticeable improvement.

Also, check which port your server is running on. Web servers traditionally use port 80. I'm not familiar with IIS, but it may be configured to use a different port number by default in a development environment. If it's running on a different port, such as 8080, you'll have to put 192.168.1.11:8080 into the browser.

comment Browsing website hosted in the virtual machine from host machine's browser
Your internet connection shouldn't affect this. Assuming you're not on dialup, your physical machine (the host) should have an internal IP address (within your local area network). The VM and host IPs should not match exactly, but if you have the adapter in bridged mode, they should both be on the same subnet, with the fist 3 parts of the addresses matching, but not the last. If your host is 192.168.1.10 and the VM is 192.168.1.11, putting 192.168.1.11 in your host's browser should work.If the IPs are not on the same subnet, there might be some other problem on your network.

comment Port Forwarding not working
This could be caused by having your modem's WAN side web interface enabled. Check and make sure that it's turned off for WAN, but enabled for LAN. Some modems come with both WAN and LAN web interfaces enabled. Enabling the WAN side is a bad idea whether or not you're trying to run your own web server.

comment How to find my stolen Macbook
Thanks for pointing this out. I didn't even realize OS X lets you create an account without a password :S. I assumed he meant that Auto Login was enabled. You can make the script set a password for her account before running the necessary commands, using do shell script "dscl . -passwd /Users/Username '' newpassword". The '' represents the current password (empty string). Keep in mind that if Auto Login is not enabled, this will lock the thief out of the machine.
