As I move around the site, cleaning up after you, tidying up the mess you leave, you don't notice me. But that's okay. I like it clean. I like it smelling fresh. And that's why I'm the janitor.

Tools in my arsenal:
  - Add kbd shortcut
  - Edit summary options (hacked)
  - Indentation using Tab key
  - Keyboard shortcuts for comments

Rule of thumb for robust source code:
Never assume this line will work as intended when writing the next. Be prepared for surprises.

This is me when I'm working: This is me when I'm working

revised Disable “These files might be harmful to your computer” warning?
expounding on wildcard (Jeff acknowledged this in a comment on another answer but I didn't notice it at first); just adding the OK instruction to make it clear (:

comment How much battery power does Near Field Communication require from a phone?
It should be something like "the mobile phone" or "the Samsung phone". "Samsung" is not a common noun. (Also note the spelling.)

How is the described passive mode any different from keeping it turned off?

"the samsumg"? Surely there's space for improvement...

comment Microsoft Excel: Moving caret with keyboard in “Edit Formatting Rule” dialog
It was very frustrating for me too, compounded by the facts that it is the default behavior and there is no helpful reminder in the dialog box. I almost posted a duplicate of your question. Thank you, and thanks to SE for its powerful "Similar Questions" feature.

comment Is there any way to prevent a Mac from creating dot underscore files?
It's worth noting that Ross Tulloch (the maker of BlueHarvest) offers a free version called BlueHarvest Lite. It is limited that you have to select and enable the feature for each new removable drive, but once set, it will keep that drive free of the junk. You can find it in the Mac App Store, however I'm not sure if it will work for network drives. You can give it a try.

comment Warning before closing application
Did you try the app in the first answer in that question? Anyway I think an OS-wide feature to warn when closing is too niche for OS developers to cater to. It's the responsibility of the program developers as they know better when such a warning is useful.

comment Mac: Skype cancel file transfer without starting skype
Windows Skype shows a Cancel button when it is sending a file. Even for tiny files you will still get time to cancel because before the actual file is transferred, (1) the recipient(s) has to accept and choose save location (even in groups). (2) there will be a slight connecting delay after recipient accepts. I find no reason to panic like what you did, unless Mac Skype operates differently.

comment Smaller back button and thinner address bar in Firefox 30
Thanks @Doktoro for pointing it out. But I'm growing to like the look of Australis with Australis Small Icons. Although I mentioned I want a squarish Back button, my main intention was to reclaim the wasted space. The add-on I picked does this very well, and therefore I don't mind the Back button still being round (but I'm glad it's smaller).

comment Smaller back button and thinner address bar in Firefox 30
Well, not exactly. How does 23.94366197183099% sound to you? :D Yes, measured in pixels. Original: 71 pixels wide. After enabling add-on: 54 pixels wide.
