comment How to convince Apple definitively that I don't want to install iCloud?
iTunes has an Advanced preference to "Check for new software updates automatically" which is enabled. I have tried disabling it to see what happens...

I think I get the "spam" install request when I start iTunes, but I'm not entirely sure of when it happens.

QuickTime has to be installed for iTunes to work on Windows, if I'm not mistaken. So, disabling the updater would not be a good solution.

What about QuickTime (or is it also checked by iTunes on launch)?

OK, I realize I wrote "without uninstalling updater" but your answer practically does the same, no? That is, I want to keep getting updates (reminders to update) iTunes.

comment Java is not recognized as an internal or external command in vba inside shell in a batch
This works, until a new version of Java is installed. Why doesn't VBA use the PATH to search for Java?

comment Can a 7 days full 100% CPU load “burn-in” / “stress test” damage a modern notebook?
@Schwern arb.ca.gov/research/seminars/mckone/mckone.pdf shows how much of various types of chemicals come out of PCs. They do have toxic vapors, but the concentrations are probably low enough not to be harmful. See slide 55 for a summary of health risks.

comment VLC streaming, setting for Logitech QuickCam at low resolution isn't working
Great answer! I'm very curious why the "*" is the key to making it work. All the other examples I find with Google show "x" as the separator between width and height.

comment How can I to free up drive space from the Windows installer folder without killing Windows 8.1?
I had the problem in Windows 8, and the temporary solution was to upgrade to 8.1 (I had 20+ G free up!). But the problem crept up again, with the continual patching of 8.1... This is an annoying problem from Windows since XP.
