Wondering how our software development process works? Take a look!

Find me on twitter, or read my blog. Don't say I didn't warn you because I totally did.

However, I no longer work at Stack Exchange, Inc. I'll miss you all. Well, some of you, anyway. :)

comment How to download favicon from website?
good advice! But not all sites specify it directly in the HTML, it can be inferred..

comment How to download favicon from website?
This works the same in Firefox latest (ver 21) however, if the favicon is in the root of the site ala the IE default, it won't show up as media there! Because it is not specified directly in the HTML, it's implied.

comment Formatting : The volume is too big for FAT32
For some reason I had trouble re-formatting a 64GB drive that was formatted to 32GB, I had to use DISKPART at the command line as indicated here: superuser.com/a/470663

comment Formatting : The volume is too big for FAT32
@soandos I meant when you said "if you need a volume > 32 GB, use NTFS" is not good advice for all applications. If I formatted this 64 GB USB key as NTFS or exFAT it would be unreadable to my automobile's music system, which is where I intend to use it. It has to be FAT32.

comment Formatting : The volume is too big for FAT32
@soandos volumes > 32 GB are valid in FAT32 and sometimes necessary; my automobile will not mount NTFS or exFAT USB drives in its audio system for example.

note that unfortunately download.com has become an adware magnet.. the install process has literally 5 different "declines" you must issue to not get adware with your download :(

comment What's the difference between dual antenna and triple antenna for a router?
is there any way to tell which antennas are doing what on a router? If it is dual band and has 3 antennas.. are some of the antennas dedicated to 5ghz? Or are they all shared?
