comment How to automatically add bookmarks to Google Chrome?
Can confirm that this (still) works today. All you have to do is export the bookmarks, edit the resulting html file so it only contains the new bookmarks you want to add, and import it back. The new bookmarks will then show up in a folder called "Imported" in the Bookmarks Manager, which you can then freely move wherever.

comment Hibernating in Windows 7 (64 bit) will always crash after prolonged use, any way around it?
@PareshkumarChaudhari it was a faulty hard drive problem in my case, I ran several tests with SeaTools for Windows and in less than an hour the results came back with faulty sectors. I replaced the hdd and haven't seen issues hibernating for long periods of time since then.

comment Why can't Chrome load a web page? ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED
Did you solve it, and if yes, how? I'm seeing the same problem, I suspect the DNS is not propagating properly.

comment Skype profile picture is too blurry
Didn't fix it for me. Looks like this is a bug on Microsoft's side judging by this thread: community.skype.com/t5/Modern-Windows-from-Windows/…

comment USB 3.0 randomly disconnecting and reconnecting
This worked for me. Why did the OS figured it was a good idea to turn off an USB 3 HDD while in the middle of copying gigabytes of data in order to save power is completely beyond me, though.

comment How can I make notepad++ remember all instances of itself from last session?
Not exactly the "plug and play" I wish it were (multiple instances have to be saved manually, auto-load can only remember one window), but still an improvement over nothing, thank you internet stranger :)

@Chris I see, okay, thank you for replying either way. Guess I'll have to look for a replacement.

@Chris, did you ever find what was the culprit? I'm dealing with a very similar issue and it's driving me insane.

comment How do I stop ssh-agent from forgetting my password after I login to the screen session from SSH?
I'm not a fan of bloating machines installing packages for everything, so I was a bit hesitant about giving keychain a go, but I have to admit I'm happy I made an exception here: keychain does a pretty damn good job at what it does, and it's super easy to set up.
