comment How to change file creation time in the different file systems
How can this be done without installing any third-party software, using just the Windows operating system?

comment How to force Windows 7 to ask for a “fresh” IP address from DHCP server?
ipconfig /renew Local* just prints the interface info, as if I typed ipconfig with no arguments. Edit: nope! It prints the info (for all interfaces, not just ones matching Local*) and renews the lease.

comment MS Outlook 2010: Filter messages except where I'm the only To: recipient
Do script rules execute on the server, or are these client-only rules? I should clarify that I'm not interested in filtering on the e-mail-client side.

comment Windows 7 Sleep requires graphics driver?
Without a driver for the video card, how does the system put it into a sane state in the first place, such as the proper resolution, and get it to display pixels?

comment Intel 4 Series express - disabling hardware acceleration
This is a poor answer, unfortunately. Disabling the driver not only disables acceleration, but also disables power management features, like blanking the screen! When I disable the driver on a Sony Vaio Laptop, the "Sleep" command in the Shutdown menu becomes grayed out; the system is not able to sleep.

comment Outlook 2003 adds extra line feeds in pasted text
Doesn't work for OL 2010. All I see is two options: paste as unformatted text, and paste as unformatted Unicode text. Both of them add blank lines.

comment How to easily port VirtualBox machines?
.vbox files use relative paths which work if everything is in the same directory; absolute paths will still be used in the "scattered" cases, like when there are disks which are not in a subdirectory of the .vbox file's location.

comment Automatic backup software?
This is silly. Suppose a database transaction (that looks atomic at the high level) performs thirty writes to the disk. Do you need thirty versions? Maybe if you're debugging the database software itself, that's it. But then you know how to solve this problem without looking for third-party software.

comment How can I change the hard disk serial number in VirtualBox?
The thing is, drives have a serial number that doesn't correspond to the VBox UUID. In a Linux guest, you can view this with smartctl -i /dev/whatever. The serial number shown bears no relation to the UUID.

comment Where are the results of chkdsk located in Windows 7?
I like it. Anything is better than dealing with EventViewer.

comment How can I recover from mistaken 'rm *'?
@Adam So then, the opposite: alias rm to a command which prints "lose the habit of using rm" and exits with an error. :)
