comment Convert Linux symlinks to Windows symlinks
I'm interested in this question but am a little unclear because these days I'm (mostly) a linux user. I wasn't aware windows had symlinks. Are you referring to symlinks under cygwin or something else. Thanks for your time and sorry for my ignorance on this.

comment Tunneling FTP connection from home where server only accepts local IPs
I Like that way of doing it a little more than my answer. You can set the SOCKS proxy in filezilla under "Generic Proxy" and remember to use it in "passive mode".

comment Why does 1KB contain 1024 bytes when 1KB = 1000 bytes?
@Bob You're putting the cart before the horse. It's only the "correct" definition because it's the popular one. It's not the popular one because it's correct. And I was pointing out that it's (very slowly) becoming less popular.

Really? Check wikipedia... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kibibyte . Also when was the last time you bought a hard disk. They're measured as 1000s. No this has long been a confusion. Unfortunately it's only 1024 because of tradition. In the "early days" it wasn't even standard that there were 8 bits in a byte. Many software engineers are adopting the use of KiB to prevent there being any argument with scientists.
