comment OSX: modifying text selection with ⌘⇧→ and ⌘⇧←
@NicolasBarbulesco you're completely right, I had written "document" just a line before, don't know why I wrote "pages" next. Fixed it now.

comment Configure terminal dimensions to show as Lines x Columns
I think it may be easiest to write an alias for resize that switches the input order ;-)

comment How to list Network Interface UUIDS?
Depending on what you want to do in the end, would networksetup -listnetworkserviceorder help? It doesn't return the UUIDs, but prints the information nicely and networksetup is the tool to enable/disable network configurations.

comment Sandbox browser for safely viewing malicious websites
Of course this bit of information is not needed to answer your question, but I have the tendency to ask "why?" before helping others do achieve something potentially dangerous/stupid (here: possibly trying to reach "shady" parts of the internet, which may do more harm than good in the end).

comment My friend installed Bittorrent and got viruses on her mac
I'd recommend reading and following the answer from this question as it gives step-by-step instructions how to remove the adware.

comment My friend installed Bittorrent and got viruses on her mac
I'd say reinstalling the system is a bit overkill, since it's most likely "only" Adware that got installed. Though, of course, you never now.

comment How to use Numbers to generate pdf on a web server and then email it out?
Why don't you generate a website with the data directly? Sounds like you only need a CSS that mimicks the Numbers style you've used… could you specify how much data, which type of data, what kind of report you're dealing with?

comment How can i get the mac family number using terminal?
If it's okay for you to not get the Model number directly (i.e. you get the Name/identifier and still have to reverse look up the Model number), then there's already a question with good answers here

Would it be an alternative for you to rather use the accent popup as described here?

comment Terminal paste unreliable
From first testing it seems that when pasting, the missing characters are before the 1024th character; so in your example 14 characters before number 1024 are missing, if you add two columns of "1234567890," per line, 10 characters before the 1024th are missing. Not sure what to make of it, though.

comment Disable App Update Notifications on OSX?
@fossilet Unfortunately, this is currently not possible. You either have to stop OS X from searching for updates or disable notifications all-together.
