comment Add a new user with a specific uid and gid
On Mac the "standard" procedure is to change the userid and group id through GUI and then run something like find /Users/USERNAME -user OLDUSERID -exec chown NEWUSERID {}\; . You can use the same dscl . -create command to overwrite/change the user id as far as I know but it maybe a bit tricky!

If you set the uid above 500 it would show up in the Preferences and you can login as well, I think you can login even if it's uid is below 500 but you need to choose other (pre-lion) and enter both user name and password.

comment Can I sync an iPhone to multiple computers without erasing all the applications?
I believe this won't work for apps, only for music, you can not copy apps between accounts like that, even for purchased music I am not sure if you are allowed to do this.

comment Where is the cron log file in Lion?
Thanks, that's exactly what I have been trying to do, it looks like that cron for some reason fails to run the job in the first place. if I run the job myself by typing the command in the terminal it runs and outputs to the logfile but if I wait for the cron to run it nothing happens, at least no change in the log file, I was thinking maybe a "cron log file" or there was any traces in the consol it could help me find out what is going on, recently I changed my shell from bash to zsh but I don't think that could have affected this either.
