    Ok, so I've got my lovely, gorgeous 27" iMac for which I drool over every time I walk into my room, however....

    I feel I know how to use Mac OS X in it's basic form but I want to try to become a bit of a more advanced user, this will of course come with time but perhaps there are some ways of kickstarting that process?

    I understand Apple Scripts are a big deal? Maybe someone could point me in the direction of some info?

    Basically, I am beyond Dummy stage but now want to get that little bit more from OSX that I know it can deliver?
    Any suggestions for 'the next step'?

    I bought Aperture 3 to deal with my increasing library of photos but I could use some dummies guidance on that too!

    Any thoughts/suggestions (and flaming/trolling if you so wish) is welcome :)

    Help is on the way

    http://www.ee.surrey.ac.uk/Teaching/Unix/

    this is a helpful way to get started on understanding the inner workings of the Mac OS - it will teach you how to use the UNIX terminal and 'hack' your mac

    I've used Macs for 8 years, and never used a script

    I bought a mac in order to avoid this kind of things scripts, unix etc... They are so easy to use there is really nothing complicated to matter with...

    However I am a system admin for several Linux servers and this allows me to get a better understand of the inner working of my mac (even if it's BSD not Linux).
