comment Mac OS X - Could not start Terminal.app - shell has illegal value
Same with me (on Lion). Other apps were acting up (like BBEdit) so I figured I'd try a restart first and it worked.

comment Script to search for highlighted text
Thanks for the info. I made another one to open the URL in Firefox in Safari using the same technique and open -a Safari "${@}"

comment Script to search for highlighted text
With mine, the built-in "Search with Google" service always opens Safari. The Automator service I made always opens with Firefox, my default browser. Both service work from Safari and Firefox. I realized that Firefox does have Services, but only when you select some text.

For whatever reason, this service works in Firefox too. When I use my keyboard shortcut, the "Firefox" menu flashes and it searches, even though Firefox's service menu is empty.

The Automator action worked perfectly since my browser of choice (Firefox) is a cross platform piece of garbage. Thanks so much, you've saved me many hours of cmd-c cmd-tab cmd-l tab cmd-v.

comment Using a Razer keyboard's WinKey as the Command key for a Mac
Sorry, I'm not sure then. I use a PC keyboard on my Mac, and the Windows key is detected as an alt key. I use the prefs to swap alt and cmd. There seems to be a number of people asking about using Razer keyboards on Macs on the web. Maybe they don't use the normal key mappings and rely on their drivers on Windows. You might have some luck with a keyboard utility like Keyboard Maestro.

As far as I remember, that used to be left-arrow and right-arrow in PDFs (in the old Preview). Too bad that they made it stick to the top of the page and don't allow an arbitrary position.

comment Is there a way to download Android apps to my PC?
It's a free app. No links googling for it though. I wonder if there's a way to spoof the android market.

Thanks for the answer. The app I'm looking for is a free app, but that directory doesn't have it.

Yeah, it's the 24 inch, with glossy screen.

I think that's the opposite of what I want. The displayport in on the display end, not the computer end.
