comment Escape Skype Messages to Use Special Character Combinations
Cool. I have just updated and it only found version 6.22.0.107 for my Win7. Anyway, it works there, too :)

comment pv: Change Prefix on the Fly
And there really is no deep down way in Unix to change NAME from the outside? Do I really have to change the source first?

comment Is “ps -u” Really a Bad Syntax?
Actually I thought I should let you, the users, decide. The one with the higher upvotes should get it. But, you are not making this any easier ;)

comment ffmpeg fails to mux video and audio properly
@Rajib The video is a direct recording from my satellite receiver, which is probably why there don't seem to be any key frames at the beginning and why I can't do anything about it. The actual content starts 2:16 into the video after some commercials, which is why I don't need the stuff at the beginning.

comment How to Lock CD/DVD Drive to VirtualBox Guest System?
@Goyuix An even better way is to use group policies to turn it off in general. However, I was wondering if it's something I could configure in VirtualBox.

comment Host DVD-ROM drive “eaten up” by Virtual Box
@PrahladYeri Have you figured out how you can make the guest system hide the drive from the host system? I want to achieve this with a Win2000 guest on my Win7 host.

comment Thunderbird plug-in to connect mails?
Thanks for extending your comment to this full answer (+1). Maybe I should give it a try and write an extension on my own... (never done that, lack of time) - I just wished that someone would point me to a "hidden" hive of extensions where my problem could find a perfect remedy...

comment Use DivX settings to encode to mp4 with ffmpeg
@LordNeckbeard You are confusing me. I'm reading your comment as if I did something wrong. However, I said I used -vb for the second pass and in your two-pass edit you put -b:v which is the same IMHO. So am I doing something wrong or am I doing okay?

comment Use DivX settings to encode to mp4 with ffmpeg
Regarding two-pass: if I use -vcodec libx264 as the only video-specific option for the second pass I get an error (maybe incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height). It works if I add -vb 1978k. So I have to add a bitrate-option. -minrate and -maxrate seem a little vague to me. Or is -vb okay for two-pass?

I found a nice doc to help with finding good options.
