Add your phone number to OS X Messages Apps
Glenn Fleishmann, writing for TidBITS, had a problem getting his phone number to work with Messages on Mountain Lion. He tried a number of things to get it to work, then finally found out that he had to log out and back in on his iPhone. He tapped Settings > Messages > Send & Receive, and then tapped Apple ID. He then tapped Sign Out, then tapped Use Your Apple ID for iMessage, and logged back in.

If you have this problem, try the above. And see the original article for more details and screenshots.

While on Youtube video click and hold Command+Option+A the faster you do this after the video has begun the easier it will be to find the file. The file will be in MB size and will be listed as 3.2 of 7.8MB as it is downloading. You can try to double click on the file and it will automatically be downloaded OR if you have an updated version of safari you will need to HOLD Option and double click to download the file. The file will be saved as a playback fly.

Just for the record: I only had to logout on the Mac. When logging back in my mobile phone number was automatically added to my email addresses.

PS: The comment above seems a little misplacedů :-)

I found that I had to repeat the log out and log in process on the desktop too after doing it on the phone. After I did both, I had the phone number on my desktop.
