comment Unable to run tmux on OS X
First run a "locate tmux" from the command line to see if the binary is installed. You may need to update the locate database if you haven't ran that command before.

comment Laptop sometimes loses WiFi connection when phone connects to WiFi
Are Laptop B and Phone C using the "n" wifi connection by any chance? I'm guessing laptop A and Phone A are not using "n" wireless connections. Is that true?

comment OSX create a HDD clone
Just note that dd is going to take a long time to clone your drive since it does it bit for bit. I hope this is just a one off deal, because using dd for the long term isn't a sustainable approach.

comment How to Edit an non-extension Picture?
What kind of picture? PNG, GIF, JPG, TIFF, etc??? Paint, Ashampoo, and Gimp might not handle that type of image file. Regardless of the extension most editors will use the file header, so this doesn't make sense to me. Can you post the file header or a sample file?

comment Adding dyndns hostname to /etc/hosts with Alias
It's possible to do what you're asking, but by using a dns server, not with the hosts file alone. At least as far as I know. It would be a lot easier to use an alias or export if you were only using it in terminal. Otherwise, you need a dns server. I do this exact thing with DyDNS, but I use an externally hosted DNS server for the forwarding to the DyDNS name (which then forwards to the dynamic IP).

comment User Accounts Privileges
Regular user accounts (non-administrators) are restricted from installing software and changing most system configurations in Windows. You shouldn't have to change the LGP unless you want something specific. Like a user that can't use USB devices, but can install software, et al. Hierarchy is guests < users < administrators, from least to most respectively.

comment Is there an easy way to upload the contents of an URL from the file chooser in Mac OS X?
Open terminal, type curl and paste URL. You can build anything off that functionality. Maybe look in to an apple script to extend that?
