How To Change An Images Color Profile On Mac OSX Lion

While looking into all of the specifics of the screencapture application on Mac OSX Lion I came across some interesting information about Color Profile. The Color Profile is assigned to each image captured with screencapture and I assume other media utilities function in the same way meaning they use the color profile that was configured when the image was created. The Color Profile stands for ICC Profile or International Color Consortium Profile and specifies a configuration file or set of configuration details that include color attributes. As you can image not all monitors display colors in the same way the same as not all graphics cards output colors in the same way so the Color Profile assigns settings that can be adjusted to make colors or any form of graphics look different.

DDWRT: Why Is SSH Management Greyed Out On DD-WRT Administration Page

Earlier when attempting to login to a DD-WRT router at my house I was unable to so I figured when I upgraded the software last night that is must have disabled SSH Management for some reason. I went into the web interface to turn SSH Management on but it was greyed out. Luckily the fix is easy but wanted to note it in an article in case others couldn’t find the location to turn SSH on in DDWRT.

OSX Lion Firewall Process Name

OK this article is sort of silly and will be fairly short and to the point but earlier I was trying to find the process name of the OSX Lion firewall. During the process of looking for the OSX Lion firewall process name I learned a bunch of little firewall tidbits such as there are a ton of settings you can set from the command line, there are third party OSX Lion Firewall GUI configuration tools, and there are complete third party firewalls available for install on OSX Lion.
