comment How can I find out the screen resolution and dpi on my mac book pro?
Note: On Yosemite (10.10.x) there's no need to press More Info, as the Displays tab is directly accessible from About This Mac

This doesn't work well on Yosemite (OS X 10.10). The Displays preference panel doesn't show the resolutions - it just has a radio button "Best for display" or "Scaled". If you check "Scaled" it will show the resolution for an external display, but not for the retina laptop display. @jwaddell's answer does work though.

comment How to type special characters in Linux?
I can confirm that alt-numpad works for me in ubuntu 12.04's tty1 console (control-alt-F1) with $LANG=en_US.utf8 The codes are decimal, not hex though, so instead of 66 (hex) for "f", I hold Alt, type 102, let Alt up and out pops "f".

Thx, works for me. In Ubuntu's terminal (under X), I'm able to type Ctrl+Shift+U, let up all 3, and then type 66 followed by Space and I end up with "f" which is the correct character for 66 in UTF-8. It didn't work from tty1 (control-alt-F1 - non-graphical terminal) though.
