comment Visual studio 2013 ultimate, WebMatrix 3 and WAMP server in same machine
OK, by default both will be set up to use ports 80 and 443. On one of them, change the defaults to 8080 and 8443 or some such. You will, of course, have to remember to use the ports in URLs when testing.

comment Windows 8 - rename to overwrite file
Well it is possible that my memory is failing me (happens all too often at my age!) but I don't remember being able to do this, it would be far too easy to entirely mess up a complete drive doing that with a very simple script.

Agreed, this isn't about performance, it improves security that's all - no bad thing!

comment Prevent Firefox Sync on startup
Oh, and like many, I hate the way you have to set up FF sync. Very unintuitive which is why they are changing it soon.

comment Prevent Firefox Sync on startup
Hi Blaise, I know it doesn't sync those things which is why I didn't give it as an answer only a comment. Personally, I've had great problems with sync of FF extensions across platforms and across personal/work machines so I tend not to. I only really want to sync bookmarks since LastPass sync's my passwords and more across ALL browsers and ALL platforms. The interface is a matter of choice. The latest FF interface is pretty good actually.

comment Prevent Firefox Sync on startup
Sorry, can't answer this one. But I will say that I don't use sync to manage passwords. I use LastPass which is a much better tool that works across all major browsers. I don't have your issues when using LastPass.

comment Is Windows Powershell as powerful as terminal of UNIX/Linux?
BTW, Microsoft did have a BASH shell available that was part of a migration toolkit supposed to help people move from UNIX to Windows Server.

comment Is Windows Powershell as powerful as terminal of UNIX/Linux?
I'd say that PowerShell is an acknowledgement from some areas of Microsoft that they messed up by not having a powerful shell available. It does not at all copy the style of UNIX however. To know PS, you really do well to understand a bit about how Windows works and how .NET works.

comment Is Windows Powershell as powerful as terminal of UNIX/Linux?
+1 for mentioning that PowerShell exposes .NET to the console & as a scripting host. It exposes the power of many key Windows libraries to be used in scripting. The use cases between the two may be similar, the style is totally different.
