Apple does screenshots


Do you think the Apple keyboard doesn’t have  a print-screen function in OS X? You would be wrong then. It actually has more than  Windows XP. Use any of the following commands to put a PDF on your desktop. (Note: If you hold down the Control key during the above commands the image  is copied to the clipboard, rather than creating a PDF.)

CMD + Shift + 3
This will take a screenshot of your entire screen.

CMD + Shift + 4
This will bring up a selection tool so you can make a rectangular screenshot of a certain area.

CMD + Shift + 4 + Space Bar

This turns your cursor into a camera. Use to take a picture of the Dock,or a window and it will crop the background automatically for the resulting image.

card-carrying member of the early Baby Boomer generation


I saw this on a blog a while ago. Still true today..  thought it was funny.  🙂

I’m old; a card-carrying member of the early Baby Boomer generation, which means I’m self-obsessed, imbued with an artificial sense of self-worth and self-importance. I’m also starting to come to grips with the aging process and I don’t like it one darned bit. Don’t know how I got this old. And got this old this fast. Funny how a combination of age and aging can change your outlook, isn’t it? And don’t forget, our generation invented sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll, computers, the internet and everything else of any import. Don’t believe us, just ask.
