comment Outlook 2010: How to top-quote initial message
I usually want to emphasize something in the email to which I'm replying, and respond directly to that edited content. Putting the quote on top helps accomplish that. Top-quoting is conventional enough that other major clients (eg, Thunderbird) provide it, and Outlook is scriptable enough I thought it'd be possible, if not in the settings somewhere. Gruber explains this practice exceptionally well.

comment Creating Arrows Easily for Images
Ah, the irony of the Gimp garnering downvotes and the online-only accepted answer dying. Quick explanation here -- 1. Draw a triangle using the [ Stars and Polygon Tool] Change the corners settings to 3 for a triangle. 2. Draw the tail using the [Rectangle tool]. Profit.

comment What does 'Highest active time' for disk activity in Windows resource monitor mean?
@TomTom Perhaps you could add an answer to clarify. I understand your point in a RAID, but the metric would seem to at least correlate strongly with poor performance, similar to what's described here. Idling your taxi does waste cash (engery.gov ppt).

comment Is there any 'sudo' command for Windows?
@naxa Yeah, it's not exactly sudo. But you can change /user:Administrator to /user:YourLoginName and do the same thing as sudo, of course. Don't quite understand @surfasb 's comment. When would this bite you? I've successfully used this trick to edit files that are only editable by an admin (eg runas /noprofile /user:myUserName "C:\path\to\Vim\vim73\gvim.exe C:\some\file.cfg")

comment How do I find the encoding of the current buffer in vim?
Probably worth mentioning that BOMs are 1.) Not unique to UTF-8 -- though UTF-8's is distinct from other BOMs, 2.) Not required and often not found in UTF-8.

comment How does parity work on a RAID-5 array?
It was easy to "feel" that you already had (drives - 1)/drives of your information even without the parity on a single drive failure, but the explanation here makes the reason obvious. If you have n-1 drives' worth of bits from your XOR equation, comparing an XORing of the n-1 to your parity bit will always tell you if the "lost" bit is switched on or not. Nicely done. (Understanding RAID 6, heaven help me.)

comment Keyboard Shortcut to Maximize Current Window / Application in Mac iOS
Even if this is a "dupe", the answer, below, using the Keyboard Sys Pref that applies specifically to window maximization is dope (and not at the other location). Yes. Dope.

I'm painfully using a really slapdash utility I wrote for this for now: Quotify.
