comment non-persistence in VMware Fusion
If I recall correctly a restart from within the OS will not reset the drive, only powering off or using the VMware "Reset" option (hard reboot)

comment non-persistence in VMware Fusion
From vmware.com/support/ws3/doc/ws32_disks2.html: Changes to disks in nonpersistent mode are not saved to the disks, but are lost when the virtual machine is powered off or reset. Nonpersistent mode is convenient for people who always want to start with a virtual machine in the same state. Example uses include providing known environments for software test and technical support users as well as doing demonstrations of software. Any disk type can be used in nonpersistent mode

comment non-persistence in VMware Fusion
@bigp: yes. Independent disks are not affected by snapshots. Non-persistent disks revert to the state they were in prior to VM start, each time a machine is powered off. They are useful if you want to get a disk set up a certain way for testing, because every time you power off the sandbox gets reset.

@BalintErdi I just found this question again by googling for the issue, found the answer, thought Hmmm, this doesn't work, what idiot posted that trick and then saw it was own damn edit. LOL. I just updated the answer, hopefully that works better now!

comment OS X: Base64 encode via command line
I don't think this is a better answer as openssl (and now base64) come with the OS.

comment How to enable Bluetooth in Mac with shortcut or command line?
@EdAvis: Apple Support Docs say: 1. Turn on your Mac. 2. If no USB mouse is detected, the Mac will power up to the Bluetooth trackpad or mouse setup assistant.

I believe that the login screen will automatically enable Bluetooth if there's no HID devices connected. I'll look for a reference tonight

comment How do I determine whether a drive is an HDD or SSD in Windows 8?
This is an absolutely terrible answer and should be downvoted into oblivion. It is inaccurate, potentially dangerous, more complicated than necessary and an altogether bad idea. The computer knows what devices are attached to it -- just ask the OS.
