comment How to convert PDF to Grayscale
It appears this no longer works with recent versions of Ghostscript: ghostscript.com/pipermail/gs-bugs/2012-May/025904.html says "'Gray' is not a documented legal value for ColorConversionStrategy"

comment expanding current directory in NERDTree without changing root
With the latest version, NERDTreeFind does exactly what I want: github.com/scrooloose/nerdtree/pull/72 - so I guess you were prescient, pferdefleisch...

comment expanding current directory in NERDTree without changing root
Actually, turns out this wasn't quite what I'd hoped for: The tree does not expand, but rather uses the current file's directory as root. (So in the example above, I'd just see the bar directory.) Since there doesn't seem to be an easy solution to this, the above's still good enough though.

comment bulleted lists for plain-text documents in Vim
Indeed, that works - many thanks! I thought I had properly escaped everything (even reduced the pattern's complexity), but apparently I was wrong. I might have escaped the asterisks, which would explain my troubles...

comment custom threshold for charging laptop battery
If I unplug after inserting the semi-charged battery, it will start charging. If I unplug before inserting a battery, the laptop will shut down hard. I've found this, but it's for ThinkPads only: thinkwiki.org/wiki/Tp_smapi#Battery_charge_control_features

comment custom threshold for charging laptop battery
Funny. What if I have a battery at 50% whose charge I wanna use up to go wireless, without shutting down the laptop or initiating a recharge cycle before unplugging (quite a frequent scenario for me)?
