Thank you Wouter! rdiskX works so much better!

As was said before: use of=/dev/rdisk and NOT of=/dev/disk on OS X because rdisk is much, much faster (usually as fast as the device is able to write). No need to go to Linux, just add the "r" in front of disk for your output!

Because with tables you can't make the layout as fluid as you can with floats and margins (though these kinds of layouts are a bit tricky but responsiveness matters too). Why not use Modern CSS layout techniques like flexbox? It has got good browser support and will save you from horror-ism of floats and margins. Google about it there's a lot of info, articles and and tutorials on it. Don't forget to check it's stuff on too. Cheers

I was having a terrible time trying to copy a large image to a USB stick using dd in OSX (Yosemite). After a few attempts with various different options, I decided to see if I could download, install and configure VirtualBox and Ubuntu and get it to the point where I could do the above before the native OSX dd could finish. After about an hour of letting it copy a 3.9GB file, I had my new Ubuntu VM running. The dd in the native OSX was still running. I canceled it to discover that I was only getting around 200kb/sec. Ridiculous. I retried it in Ubuntu - a VM inside the native machine - and I'm getting 6MB/s!! Still not breaking any records for USB writing, but it's still THIRTY (30!) times faster than through the native OSX. WTF, Apple? Thanks for this. This is the way I'm going to do this from now on...

Use sudo dd if=~/Downloads/Fedora-18-a10-armhfp-r1-cubie.img of=/dev/rdisk8 bs=64k Use /dev/rdiskN (raw) on Mac OS X as it will be orders of magnitude faster than using /dev/diskN . Cheers, Marcus

Use /dev/rdisk1 instead of /dev/disk1 This makes all the difference. I saw speeds go up from 0.3 MB/s to 20 MB/s.

Thanks. I've tried all sorts of block sizes to minimal effect.

Try a greater block size, such as bs=1M

The cars really are ugly. Based on what we've seen so far, though, it hasn't helped them go faster than the conventional-looking McLaren! I used to think that Jenson would get slaughtered by Lewis but, after the last couple of years, I'm starting to think that it's a bit more complicated than that. Lewis is definitely the faster driver but I reckon Jenson's a smarter racer and he can be pretty fast as long as the car suits his style. It's a bit like Prost (Button) vs Senna (Lewis) and like with those two, things will probably end up pretty even over a full season. Re: Massa, if anything, his poor performances show how good Alonso is. The Ferrari looks like a truck to drive and he managed to steer it to 5th!

It looks like the Red Bulls are competitive again this year (how good was Vettel on his pole lap!) but I reckon the Ferraris will be the class of the field for at least the first few races. I think Alonso's the most talented of the current bunch of drivers(along with Schumi of course but he might be a different animal now) so if Ferrari give him a decent car, he could well have the measure of everybody else. The dynamics of the Button/Hamilton duo will keep me interested. Everybody seems to assume Lewis will win that one but I'd like to see how his more agressive style's gonna affect his fuel consumption rate, compared to Jenson's smoother style. Looking forward to the first out-of-gas, pushing-the-car-over-the-finish incident, we haven't seen that since Jean Alesi in the late 90's and Prost in the mid-80's :-)
