comment Is it illegal to download TV Shows that I pay for? (Bittorrent)
On top of which, it's (dependent on area, country, etc) illegal to share (upload) this pirated material, which is what BitTorrent does.

If you think my answer is the "best solution to your problem", would you mind accepting it?

comment Powershell script to open random video
Seems like the delay is on the lookup, though my system is apparently gratifyingly fast. I'd guess you're either looking at a slow drive, or something accessed over the network on another system. The answer below involving caching is close enough to what I was going to suggest next.

Indeed, it wouldn't. But the writing is near instant?

Not a worry - it will list your IP in both the admin console on the server, and the application on your tablet. My use of the word local was just to emphasize that you weren't using the WAN IP of the tablet device.

Yes, that's correct. You should be able to access the Android device as it were present on the local network, using the VPN provided IP address.

Is it faster if you have your video-player of choice open already? If you remove | Invoke-Item, does it complete near instantly?

I'm embarrassed to say that I don't have a copy of WinRar installed here, but the changes made to the answer should help.

comment WinRar - Custom shell commands
Are you selecting a single file, or multiple? Just looking at the last line, looks like you might be trying to select all files within the "file" (trying as a folder). But just checking what the last portion of the command is doing (\"%1\*.*\").

Thanks. Just to check- do you get the entry added to the context menu, and then it silently fails, or is it not adding the option?
