comment Prompt if I really want to close visual studio?
My name is Arrogant Commenter and I think we should not use tools like Resharper because common sense tells you to just write perfect code. Common sense wants you to read books and to follow library help instead of searching for answers on SO.

comment Connect My Laptop To Internet Using the LAN Port On My Desktop
Actually, the more efficient solution is to read about "how to use your pc as a router". You can set a flag in the registry with regedit.exe that will allow to use your computer as a router, then creating a second IP address in the network properties, setting your IP manually, creating a route table to forward internet packets through this connection, etc. But for an easy solution, just taking the time to activate the good options in ICS should suffice and being really straightforward.

An answer pointing to a commercial product isn't an answer.

As of today, this is now a commercial product invalidating the answer.

comment Over-Amplification of Volume in VLC or any Media Player harmful to speakers or a myth?
My speakers broke after having set the amplification to 150% during 10 minutes. But the original source of the problem was that the laptop has been standing on the couch during the night, so it was already hot. I'm pretty sure it is a question of temperature and of component quality.

Actually, same happened to me and I never knew what I've done (or not) to resolve it. I'll just keep following your thread.

comment Replace text with multiple unique values each time
I know this is just an example, but you should write actual values instead of "other text" or any replacement text. We need to focus on your example corpus to answer, so it needs to totally reflect what is your content, without any ambiguity. Or maybe it actually content "other text" each two lines?

comment Windows Phone 8 emulator on system that lacks SLAT
Just checked again, and apps are deploying automatically. It's the emulator itself that takes between 4:30 and 5 minutes to load.

comment Windows Phone 8 emulator on system that lacks SLAT
I've done the same on a Windows Server 2012 VM. 5 minutes to launch an app. But Hyper-V virtual network adapters were configured in a better way under WS2012 than under Windows 8, so Internet was working OOTB in the emulator. Plus, no need for SLAT. I'm on an AMD A6, so I confirm.

comment Is there a modern browser that runs on Windows 3.1?
And the other solution is @rob 's solution: to change the PC yourself for another PC with a better OS but with the same I/O (serial port, parallel port and others) and with the original data / company softwares.
