comment Getting around the FAT32 4GB file size limit
File splitting is as old as size limits. All that has changed over the years is the partition size limit and max file size :)

comment stty doesn't change serial port speed in cygwin
I looked at these settings in Device Manager and it claimed to be at 9600N81. But that's not what I see. So, maybe the setting is coming from a Cygwin library.
