Another option is to print the PDF to file and use the 2 pages on 1 option in the printer driver.

comment How to make pdf in size A4 whith two A5 pages?
One option is to convert the PDF to PostScript, use some tool to do this with PostScript such as psnup or psresize, then convert back to PDF. This is not guaranteed to work for all possible PDFs.

comment Ensure Visio new Connection Points at the middle distance?
This is not a limitation in Visio, but in its GUI for specifying connection points. GUIs are limited, you can't specify everything through them.

comment How do you configure a Windows machine for a Linux user?
Why not mention Cygwin? It gives you a very Unixy environment: no more need for a separate X server or GnuWin32 utilities.

comment When I plug an Ethernet cable into my computer, is my computer directly connected to every server on the Internet?
Yes, ideal applications would be UDP-based. An NFS server could get a decent bandwidth (not latency).

It depends on what you want to do. Interactive applications won't work well over pigeons at all, but e.g. email or Usenet are doable.

It still doesn't work for me. I get a screenshot, but only the X applications show up (as expected).

comment How to get WYSIWYP (print what you see) in a web browser?
@SBoss: Yes, print stylesheets are useful. That doesn't imply I want to use them. My question is: what to do if I don't.

comment How can a file size be zero?
This answer is wrong: there is definitely a file (it has all properties of a file, such as an owner and access permissions), there is just no content in the file.

comment Automatically taking screenshots with IrfanView: shortcut not working at startup
@Karan: I tried both; neither work. For the scheduled task, the problem seems to be that it has to run as SYSTEM and cannot access my screen. A login script doesn't work at all (not even one that just echoes a line to a logfile).

comment Automatically taking screenshots with IrfanView: shortcut not working at startup
@Karan: I just tried. Nothing shows up in the logfile at all. Not even when I place the batchfile itself in the startup folder. Other shortcuts are working fine.

@Karan: I am just trying to get this to work. If you can tell me how to do it with Windows utilities I'll be happy.
