People like you are why I like this site. Two-year-old answers still get updated. Nice work.

comment Outlook 2010: How to add meeting invites automatically to the calendar as tentative?
I know I'm necroing the heck out this, but "Sniffer only works with Inbox items. If you don't get the request in your Inbox, for example due to a rule, Sniffer will not act on it" isn't true in Outlook 2010. I have a gazillion different rules that run and drop stuff into folders, and even the meeting invites that get moved to Deleted Items still end up on my calendar =/

comment How to track external code in git
So would a hackish (but functional) solution be to clone to another temp folder, do rebase merge, once everything is up to date, replace any files in the main repo with the updated version, then commit those changes just as a normal commit?

And what's the proper way to do that if people have seen the commits? Say the workflow that happens is I check in original, make changes, commit changes, push changes to server, other people pull those changes, commit and push back to server, I pull those changes, and now original gets updated?

Why exactly are you trying to do this? Depending on what your end-goal is, the answer may be different.

I think rebase does what I'd want it to, but (this may be a somewhat stupid question:) does it require that you check in the original unmodified source code before changing it? (e.g. check in original, make changes, original gets updated, rebase to updated original?)

comment How do I run more than one Windows Explorer?
In my experience, it only focuses My Documents if you haven't navigated away from My Documents in the old window. If you open My Documents, then open a subfolder in that window, then hit the shortcut for My Documents again, it should open a second window (granted it's been years since I've XP'd). Win+E is a great solution which I thoroughly abuse

Is the Alfa still under warranty? You could maybe RMA it and have two functional adapters around for future use.

So go to a store, buy one, and if it doesn't work, return it saying it doesn't work right. That's what I'd do.

Do you have another wireless adapter to try? That'd be the easiest thing to try

comment GNU find include parent directories
So you want to delete all files except for the ones in (in this case) foo/bar/world, and then delete any empty directories?

comment GNU find include parent directories
I'm not sure I'm reading you right, so I'm just putting this here as a comment instead of an answer, but if you want a directory listing of the folder containing test.txt, try 'ls $(dirname $(find . -name main.c))'.

comment My computer is loud: How do I tell which fan is the issue?
@Jules PSU fan by process of elimination -- if you've disabled all other fans in the system and it's still making noises, then the PSU is your culprit. Also, the PSU may be individually most likely, but there's typically at least 2-3 other fans in the system, so I'd say odds are it's not the PSU
