comment dd producing corrupt ISO images on Snow Leopard (whether invoked from a script or the shell)
You can create an image using dd, but it will not be an ISO image and will not be mountable since it is only raw audio data and has no filesystem. In that case you should use a block size of 2352 (bs=2352).

An audio CD does not contain a filesystem, so you cannot create a mountable ISO image of an audio CD using dd.

/dev/disk1s0 is used to read the CD-ROM data. If the CD is audio only, then there will be no /dev/disk1s0, only disk1s1, s2, etc. for each audio track.

comment How do I tell Firefox to only keep persistent cookies from sites I want?
Or CS Lite (addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5207). Not as many features but it doesn't noticeably slow down the browser for me like CookieSafe (probably due to my large list of cookie exceptions).

comment How to change a symlink in OS X?
It is just moving a new link over the old one. The mkdir/rmdir is just there because "mv x y" renames x to y/x instead of just y if y is a directory or a link to a directory. If mv had an option to suppress this behavior then it would be simpler.

@Mk12: Sorry, you are right. I have fixed my answer to handle this, although it is now 4 commands instead of 2... :-(
