comment Is a laptop computer going to save its extra cost compared to a desktop computer due to lower electricity consumption, after more than one year?
The mobility and other advantages of a laptop can of course translate to money if you need mobility in a business setting. Might be hard to quantify, but it's worth a swag if you're trying to justify a laptop monetarily.

Firefox would be another one to try, have you tried it already to see how it performs?

comment How to connect to an HTTPS WebDAV Folder on Windows 7?
Should that be net use * https://webdav.example.com:port/folder *? According to the docs, the second * means it should prompt for a password.

comment How to run commands as in a queue
Looks neat, thanks. The one thing missing from TS seems to be the ability to follow jobs that weren't started under TS. Though I guess you could start a new TS job whose purpose is just to wait for an existing process to finish.

comment How to run commands as in a queue
Difficult to use in practice, since it requires that every job you want to run needs to be modified to keep lock files, and needs to know (or accept as parameters) which lock files to use. Whenever possible, it's best to have the queueing external to the job.

comment How to run commands as in a queue
If you change your mind on any of those commands in the meantime, what can be done to abort the wait? It seems impervious to all my killshots.

comment How to run commands as in a queue
It seems like this basically just "types" the command in the running screen session, so that when the shell gains control again after the first command finishes, this command will start. In other words, it's equivalent to @mankoff's solution, but uses a fancier tool to do the typing.

comment Cygwin wants to downgrade my Perl
Thanks. Yeah, the main problem would be deciding what to call it. ;-)
