comment How do you add more than one phone number on iMessage?
Yup! ...and on all of your other devices with that iCloud account too. I'm doing exactly that myself. I have two iPhones (one AT&T, one Verizon), a Mac Pro, MacBook Pro and MacBook Retina. All seven devices show both numbers and I can switch between all of them effortlessly.

comment How do you add more than one phone number on iMessage?
Just clarifying one thing... when you sign in to iCloud on each phone, you also have to explicitly say to use that phone with iMessage. Simply signing into iCloud is not enough if you don't also enable iMessage. Also, under the 'I can be reached at' portion of the settings, you'll notice you can't uncheck that particular device's phone number. So my AT&t device has to receive iMessages from AT&T but can also receive them from the Verizon number (provided someone is sending an iMessage of course.)

Someone already posted that as an answer so I'd just be repeating it.

While I agree separate Apple IDs are the preferred way to go, you can actually have multiple phone numbers on the same Apple ID. In my case, I have two iPhones, one on Verizon and one on AT&T. When I signed into my iCloud account on each, each number was added to my account. Now both numbers are associated with my account.

You don't add it from iMessage. When you add your Apple ID to each phone, it associates that phone number with the account. So when I first signed in with my Apple ID on my Verizon iPhone, that number was associated. Then when I did the same with my AT&T iPhone, that number too was associated with the account.

Again, you're wrong. I just told you I've done exactly that. I have both my Verizon phone number and my AT&T phone number assigned to the same Apple ID.

Not true. I have two iPhones, one on AT&T and one on Verizon, both sharing the same Apple ID. Both numbers show up under my Messages setting on both phones, and for the matter, on all of my other devices which are also signed in (i.e. two iPads and three Macs.)

comment How do I delete contact suggestions from Messages in OS X?
Actually, what you stated isn't true because I have two iPads, an iPhone 6 and my mac, all syncing their contacts through iCloud, and even though I successfully deleted the contact (which propagated the delete), then manually did the 'Remove from Recents' on all iDevices (where it now no longer shows up) it does still show up on the Mac. I deleted the contact weeks ago.

Not really a fix. It's removed from iOS but it still shows up in OS X.

comment Can anyone recommend a hw/sw combination to allow me to preview a Component input with audio on a Mac?
Unfortunately, Elgato doesn't have a product that fits this need. I've spoken extensively to their tech support and their cards do not show up as DirectShow capture devices so they can't be used. You can only use them with their software, which is one limit, but since they are doing the encoding on device, there's also a huge latency performance hit. It's a shame too. They really do have nice stuff, but unfortunately, they don't have what we need.

comment Changing modifier keys from the command line
@pith... what's the -g flag do? I didn't see that in the man page for defaults. Also, this looks like it's swapping two sets of values: 4 with 2 and 10 with 12, yet there are only two modifiers that change. Can you elaborate, or did you simply look at the output but don't know what they actually represent? (At first I suspected four key codes--two on the left, two on the right--but they don't appear to be key codes, at least not as reported by the keyboard driver.)

comment iMovie: Crop and letterbox (ignore aspect ratio)
Perhaps sketch a quick illustration on paper, snap it with your cellie... upload it somewhere and link here in your question so we can see.

comment iMovie: Crop and letterbox (ignore aspect ratio)
@Nathan, not really sure what you want at this point. At first I thought you wanted a custom aspect ratio so I explained that. Then I thought you wanted a custom aspect ratio as part of a normal aspect-ratio movie, hence it needed bars or something to 'fill in' the rest (or cropping which you can do with the effects) and now you're saying you don't want that either. So at this point, I'm really not clear as to what you're trying to do. Can you try again to re-clarify what your goal is?

comment iMovie: Crop and letterbox (ignore aspect ratio)
Again, to be clear... you take the video that you want to have with a unique aspect ratio and load that part into iMovie. You then export the video in the aspect ratio you need. You'll now have a video with aa custom aspect ratio. You now import THAT video into the MAIN project in iMovie, and in there, you specify the cropping for that specific section and iMovie will add the black bars as needed to match the rest of the main video (and whatever resolution/aspect you choose when exporting it.)

comment iMovie: Crop and letterbox (ignore aspect ratio)
What doesn't my answerdo? I thought you said you wanted part of your video to have a different aspect ratio than the rest, and for that part to have black bars to compensate for the difference. That's exactly what I told you how to achieve. Granted, it's not elegant as it requires multiple steps, but that's the limitation of the tool.

comment iMovie: Crop and letterbox (ignore aspect ratio)
Surprised this one got the bounty considering saying iMovie not supporting custom aspect ratios isn't actually true as I outlined how to do it below, nor do you need the extra software since you can set that when exporting via the advanced settings, again as I outlined below. I also explained how to do exactly what you want--having only part of the video with a custom aspect ratio. Again, scratching my head here that this was the one you awarded, even after my replies.
