comment How do I stop NSURLSessionD from starting every time I restart my Mac?
Well in principle you could save your script as your own LaunchAgent, but I wonder why you would want to kill a harmless Apple-provided API that allows other programs to download data? This could potentially lead to weird errors in the long run…

comment How to remove + sign from app not using In-App purchase
The plus sign next to the buy/download button indicates that you get both an iPad and iPhone version with one purchase, is this what you're referring to?

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.

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
