comment how to open and modify eps with gimp
From the gimp website: gimp.org/downloads There are 2 versions of Gimp available for download for the Mac OS X environment. One stock and one with plugins. The one with plugins, links to: gimp.lisanet.de/Website/Download.html On my system, I also have installed 'ghostscript' via homebrew. I've not needed to modify any plist bits.

comment Screencast Video Stream
Aha! I finally got it working. So using VLC 32bit intel 2.0.8, when you choose the CamTwist capture device, it will list 0's for the width and height. I entered in 720 and 480 respectively and got a stream. I tried it at 1280x720 and likewise worked. So the crash seems to be due to not having a width and height set. Woot!

comment What are the reasons that an imessage would send as a text message instead?
Sorry, I meant in your addressbook. But if you both got your phones at the same time, then it "should" be the same. A real head scratcher, unless one of the phones has trouble accessing the cellular network and defaulted to wifi, in which case, it would not register on the phone logs.

@SmyPs if it is only happening when you are connecting to her, check your addressbook and how you have her listed and vice versa. It could be that when she iMessage(s) you, it is via your AppleID, but when you message her, it is via a phone number. Also, are you using the same devices?

~lol~ Well, the title of the question and the question body differ somewhat in implied question. :) But the question in its entirety is an interesting one.

comment How to backup an encrypted Core Storage volume off-site?
As noted in my answer, I would recommend against S3, having tried using it as a backup backend, there are multiple negatives to employing it, especially if you intend to do rsync/block diffs. I'll elaborate in the answer. The ARQ software looks interesting. But I thought the question was how to backup an encrypted filesystem in it's encrypted form and not individual files.
