comment What is the command line to schedule a task to be executed once and soon?
+1 for timeout's simplicity. at complained on me in Windows 7. And although schtasks allows you to simply enter the target time (and possibly date) - whereas with timeout you have to calculate the number of seconds until that time yourself - when you want to run something at a certain time, you have to first schtasks /create it, and later schtasks /delete it, otherwise it will linger around. Why would you want to store global (and permanent) state for a one-off task anyway? This also forces you to choose a unique name so as not to overwrite some existing task?

comment “SSH server” in Windows?
I tried freesshd - what you get is a login into a windows shell (cmd.exe?) with a fixed width that does not adapt to your terminal client, i.e. you get annoying line breaks mid-screen. Also, it's nowhere near a bash shell, so I figured, if I want a really usable ssh login into my windows box, I'll do it using cygwin, which I've done before. Granted, cygwin is a bit like an os inside the os, but it does make windows usable for a (unix) cmd line user.

comment How to install a private user script in Chrome 21+?
@btleffler Except that you'll have to jump through that hoop every time, rather than making the change once.

comment Getting Thunderbird External Editor working with Emacs
I'm on icedove (aka thunderbird) 10.0.4, Debian testing, and could not get it to work. I tried Emacs23 (both /usr/bin/emacs and /usr/bin/emacsclient) as well as Emacs24 (/usr/bin/emacs-snapshot), but trying to open the external editor via the Tools menu is always a no-op. No error message, just nothing.
