Startup profiles configure profiles to install at the next boot, rather than immediately. Useful in a number of scenarios. Use the -s to define a startup profile and take note that if it fails, the profile will attempt to install at each subsequent reboot until installed. To use the command, simply add a -s then the -F for the profile and the -f to automatically confirm, as follows (and I like to throw in a -v usually for good measure):
profiles -s -F /Profiles/SuperAwesome.mobileconfig -f -v
And that’s it. Nice and easy and you now have profiles that only activate when a computer is started up.

By default, screenshots are pretty big on a retina display on a High Sierra machine. Like about 4 times the size they should be. I haven’t found a defaults key I can use yet to reduce them, so I’ve been using this little screenshotting app called RetinaCapture, available at https://gumroad.com/l/retinacapture
Basically, when you’re running it, you just open it up and click on the Window button. There, you can select a window to screenshot.
Once you’ve selected the window, you’ll be prompted to save it somewhere with a name.
I don’t love having to use any 3rd party apps for my screenshotting workflow. In fact, it bugs the crap out of me. Screens get resized by publishers for books and so I’m really only using this for my site. But, hopefully it helps someone else along the way. Happy screenshotting!
