comment How to add the Em dash “—” to my keyboard?
You guessed right: this is just a huge bunch of macros that change the text into pure hexa values that are sent to the USB. So copy/paste doesn't work because it needs pre-defined macros (which are hex values) like 'A'..'Z', and '0'...'9' and some 'ALT' and other special keys.

comment How to add the Em dash “—” to my keyboard?
@Arjan You're perfectly right: i can assign sequences of instructions to a single key, but there's a problem with the 'ALT' key when sending macros: if I try to do a macro that uses 'ALT' key, there's a bug that makes sending more than one key with 'ALT' pressed not working. And because I'm not an expert with this pure C program, I'm looking for a workaround that could send only one keystroke, or only one combination of 'ALT' + a key.

comment How to add the Em dash “—” to my keyboard?
@Arjan I can assign whatever I want of each key of my keyboard (this is a blank keyboard, I let you google for ergodox). So I would like to "program" one key so that when I press it, it sends the proper key combination to Windows and Windows "understands" it as "emdash".

I found it here:forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=557434&langid=6 I need to do Alt + 0151. This is a macro and it doesn't seem possible to send it directly with a special key combination (which would be far easier to program on my Ergodox...)

comment Why does my Windows 7 always take one default route?
So if I disable DHCP on my ISP box this is supposed to work? Then how comes I don't have the problem with my mobile, which has also both wired and wifi connexion?

comment Impossible to read a VHD file
I've tried. This doesn't work, but it showed that there are 3 partitions: the first one (102Mb) it ext3, the second is "RAW" and third is "RAW" too. If I have to go under Linux how should I do? Which program? Thank you for your answer

comment Windows shortcut doesn't work: how to enclose filenames with spaces?
Thank you for your answer, but if I want the window to close (= add && exit) or execute another program via && something else your solution doesn't work... And I want that windows to close as soon as it's finished.

What I tried worked (and it's your solution actually), but it needed not only close, but reboot.

comment What does wwws mean?
What? Damn! I've read The trend is to drop these prefixes (e.g. look above: superuser.com instead of www.superuser.com)? Be warned: when optimizing website, you absolutely have to keep this www. Search google for "Use Cookie-free Domains for Components" and you'll get the picture: fast websites very often keep the "www". Be warned!

comment How do you install MSIE7 in Windows 7?
-1 x 20! Just look around, google a bit and you'll see this "IE8 compatibility view" is buggy, and doesn't do what it is supposed to do. Don't rely on this tool at all. Google around and you'll see by yourself.

comment OpenOffice vs LibreOffice - what's the difference?
Thank you for the answer. IMO you should switch to LibreOffice. Oracle tried to acts like a business company, with absolutely no mankind (which is the heart of "free" and "open" source), that's why all the best OpenOffice developpers went away to develop for "free", "open"source, LibreOffice). That's why the next Ubuntu version will include LibreOffice, not OpenOffice. If you want long term support, go for LibreOffice !
