comment VMware Player does not display USB stick and can not connect to network
I have this problem when plugging directly into the computer. I have to reboot the guest to get it to mount USBs again. I find that this problem manifests itself when I unplug a USB without unmounting it first (it seems to happen more frequently in this case; not sure if it's 100% of the time).

@eisb Gotcha, I wasn't aware (after a decade and a half of daily Windows use, I still haven't become as proficient with Windows as I have with Linux in only two years). I'll fix. Thanks for the tips! :)

comment Why does osx 'find' utility require a path?
@IgnacioVazquez-Abrams because it doesn't necessitate installing MacPorts or something similar.

You're right. I entered the wrong one by mistake. I made an edit; it should work now.

@SachinShekhar Unless I'm mistaken, PowerShell doesn't even ship with Windows. If he has to install an application, he may as well just install cygwin.

@TheLQ A batch script is even easier still. I can accomplish the same result by typing a single character. See my answer below for a description.

Why not just create a batch script and place it in your path? ~.bat could contain cd %USERPROFILE%, and it would be accessible by typing ~ at your command prompt. Furthermore, it would be valid outside of your shell without registry hacks.

comment Cannot Delete an Empty Folder in Windows 7
Why on earth does Windows require a reboot to delete an empty folder? Further evidence that this OS is a joke, and we all have been punk'd... sigh
