If you are testing ChromiumOS on VMware and the mouse is moving way to slow, try adding this to your VMWare vmx configuration file:

Simple instructions for creating Retina favicon:
Create a 16×16 PNG-24 for your low-res icon
Create a 32×32 PNG-24 for your high-res icon
Head over to http://convertico.org/Multi_Image_to_one_icon/ and upload those two icons together to create a dual-resource ico file which you rename to favicon.ico.
Upload that favicon.ico in the root of your webroot.
For some reason the meta tag <link rel=”icon” href=”favicon.ico”> seems to prevent the high-res version from working so I temporarily removed it. If you know the correct meta tag to be using for retina please let me know.

Having problems getting OS X Mavericks to display your monitor’s native resolution? I had this problem with an Acer AL1916W with 1440×900 resolution. My solution was to download QuickRes Free from the Mac App Store. Run it and click the icon up in the Menu Bar. Select the monitor. Select the resolution you want.
On a recent trip to Utah I decided to opt-out of the TSA body scanner. I had read that those were deemed to be easily defeated and not as effective as the standard metal detector.

- Fast load
- No Ads
- Useful Features
