comment Getting 2 or more devices to be able to see each other and the internet behind a captive portal
And how does that help? There is no networking cable to connect my PC to my Phone and as stipulated above my Phone needs to be getting files served as web pages from my PC. In other words the phone needs to see the PC on the network. All USB gives me is debugging. It doesn't let the phone browser webpages from my phone.

comment Getting 2 or more devices to be able to see each other and the internet behind a captive portal
What's not clear? The question is "how to get 2 devices to see each other behind a captive portal". Seems pretty straight forward question. I found a solution. I can post that solution as an answer. I can make the question a wiki entry. But the point of stackexchange sites is to post questions and answers. I asked a question, I provided an answer. That could clearly be useful others. That's 1000% inline with what this site is about. Maybe there are other answers others could suggest as well. I'm not seeing how by any guideline on this site this question should be closed.

As far as I can tell the View->Show View Options doesn't effect Open Dialogs which is what the question is about

comment Chrome: remove URL from autocomplete which doesn't show up in history?
worked for me on chrome 39, OSX 10.10, macbook pro. Also verified that it synced to my iPhone Chrome. I used to type "wea" and it would complete to "weather.com" which I didn't want. So, typed "wea", saw it complete, pressed shift+fn+del, then cleared the omnibar bar and typed "wea" again, no more "weather.com". Tried it on iOS a few minutes later. At first it did complete to "weather.com" but a few moments later it stopped. YEA!

comment How to setup OSX as a wifi router from the command line
No I'm not connected to a WiFi network. I want my mac to BE the WiFi network that other devices connect to. Right now I'm making due by hacking a router I own and setting up it's DHCP to point back to my Mac but I'd like to be able to use the Mac as the router. It doesn't have to be command line but I suspect I can't do it otherwise. This is relatively unique thing I'm trying to do.

comment Force an application to use a specific network interface
This isn't really an answer is it? The question is how to force an app not a website. For example what I wanted Safari to go over VPN(ppp0) but Firefox to go over en0 regardless of what site they are accessing? That's the question.

comment Opening a new terminal from the command line and running a command on Mac OS X?
I'm sure this obvious to an applescript expert but how about an example that launches any program? Basically like I can do 'xterm -e somecomnand'
