comment Most reliable way to mirror large number/size files/folders between drives & computers
Thanks - I use (and own) SuperDuper, but I double checked and it will only copy full disks/images, not individual folders. I've already started using Arrsync, which seems pretty good.

comment Safari is using too much RAM. How can I reduce its memory footprint?
But it is impacting my computing experience. My computer starts to crawl when Safari eats up a lot of memory and I usually have to shut it down or restart it.

Turns out Automator has PDF -> Image workflow built in: superuser.com/questions/88379/… - this worked nicely

So this seems to work well - HOWEVER - the text in the PDF gets pixelated when I export/convert the PDF slides to JPG or PNG. If I bump up the resolution (600dpi or even 1200 dpi) it crashes the photo viewer on the iPad. Any suggestions for optimizing a JPG or PNG for display on an iPad?

Awesome! Thanks. Not planning (or capable) to build an iOS app, so I'd have to find one that does this or use your suggestion. Will investigate WebClips and hosting a quicktime file locally! Still hoping to find a solution that lets me load the video locally off the iPad to avoid everyone crunching the network at once.

comment How can I check via software if my iPhone is unlocked?
When I purchased my unlocked iPhone from the Apple Store, I had to ensure that my SALES RECEIPT indicated no contract, which would prevent the phone from being locked once a SIM was inserted. Further reading here: howardforums.com/showthread.php/…
