Dump MySql (MAMP) database tables to Dropbox for daily backups.
# Daily MySQL dump on OSX to use in conjuction with Time Machine
# 1) Save this file in some appropriate location like /usr/sbin/
# 2) Make sure it is executable: sudo chmod +x /usr/sbin/
# 3) Create the backup directory: mkdir ~/dbdumps
# 4) Create the cron entry to run it daily by executing the following:
# sudo echo "47 5 * * * /usr/sbin/" >> /usr/lib/cron/tabs/root

How to get a WordPress attachment image URL in the required size
View wp_get_attachment_image_url
Much is made of the WordPress function wp_get_attachment_image_src() which returns an array of data for an attachment image.
But dealing with the array is not alway welcome.
wp_get_attachment_image_url() is your friend here as it returns the URL of the attachment at the desired size.
