comment MacPro Hard Drive 3 TB or Larger formatted to Logical Volume Group by Disk Utility
@g8orballboy I have not used Boot Camp Assistant with this scenario. Are you using Boot Camp Assistant 10.6, or a later version?

comment Why does my 3TB Seagate HD keep formatting as a Logical Volume Group
This issue has come when using Disk Utility on a MacPro in both Mountain Lion (10.8) and Mavericks (10.9). For another solution using a Snow Leopard (10.6) install DVD, see my answer here on AskDifferent.

comment OS X Mail: Search within message (including header)
An update for Mail Version 7.1 (1827) Mavericks 10.9.1: It is no longer possible to search the Raw Source window with Command-F or Edit>Find>Find… However, you can copy the entire window and paste it into a word processor or TextEdit where you can do a search of the entire message, including headers. Not sure why Apple took this capability out of the Raw Source window, but hopefully it will be fixed in future versions.

comment How do I find out what computers I have authorized?
@bmike Your statement is only partially correct: A computer can only be associated if it is authorized. But authorization does not apply to iOS devices at all, even though they can be associated. More applicable to the original question, though, is that the association list need not contain all authorized devices. For example, I have 5 authorized computers, but only three devices in my associated list. So the associated list may not necessarily indicate the names of all of one's authorized computers.

@grgarside. The Manage Devices screen you are showing is for associations not authorizations. Confusing, I know, but Apple defines these similar terms very differently. See my answer for clarification and a working solution to the original question.

comment How are colorschemes represented in OS X Terminal.app Settings Files?
Thank you for your answer. I wasn't really wanting to reverse engineer the process (although that could be an interesting exercise). I just wanted a way to convert the base64 data into a more common color value representation. And your answer did that. It's right there in the second code block. Right after classN: 0 0.1645 0.21. I've learned from @Lauri that these are fractional RGB values, which can be converted to conventional RBG by multiplying them by 255.

Thank you, this is just what I was looking for. I was thrown a bit by the fractional RGB terminology, but then I realized I could get nominal RGB values by multiplying the fractional values by 255 and rounding (e.g. 0.4769933663 * 255 = 122). I really like your CLI one-liner: You'd make Doug McIlroy and Ken Thompson proud! Write programs that do one thing and do it well. Write programs to work together. Write programs to handle text streams, because that is a universal interface. Unix Philosophy
