comment VMWare failing to boot Ubuntu guest after upgrade of host from Windows 8.0 to 8.1
Confirmed... the repair option of the installer worked fine for me, too. No re-installation needed. I simply downloaded the latest installer from vmware.

comment Is there a way to have customised text instead of subject in Thunderbird's inbox list?
+1 for pointing me to this useful plugin. Unfortunately, for my task I'd need "Javascript Action with Body" which is declared an "experimental" feature and not really documented :( I am neither afraid of Javascript nor Regex, but it is painful to figure out the data structure, even more as the programming is done in a text input field. What a pity - apart from that it seems to be exactly what I am looking for.

comment How can I send screenshots more quickly in Skype?
This depends on how often you need to do screenshots. If you work with screenshots every day and can make use of enhanced features (like quick annotations etc), it is well worth considering to install software to do these things. After all, hitting Print-Screen and directly selecting a destination for the screenshot is simpler than Print-Screen, focus another program, paste. That said, Skype definitely has great image-from-clipboard support, most other software embeds a huge Windows bitmap instead.

comment How can I send screenshots more quickly in Skype?
You both should definitely have a look at Greenshot's blog post about how to send screenshot to skype with the external command plugin. You can set Skype as target destination using the plugin, then it's just a single click to send the screenshot to skype. No need to use the clipboard :) getgreenshot.org/2013/02/17/…

comment How to screenshot in skype?
@frog Actually, the different shortcuts (you can change these, btw) have different functionality in Greenshot: Print allows you to select a rectangle to shoot (I think that is what you're asking for in a comment above?), Ctrl+Print does a fullscreen shot, Alt+Print does a Window shot. In case you need to send screenshots via Skype, there's a recent post in Greenshot's blog about how to send screenshots to Skype.

comment How to prevent Firefox converting 'localhost/*' URLs into search queries?
@IanVaughan With regard to the question, I consider this to be the correct answer, since it actually is about search queries: superuser.com/questions/382905/…

comment How to prevent Firefox converting 'localhost/*' URLs into search queries?
I do not think this is the correct answer to this question, as it rather prevents FF appending .com to anything you type into the address bar. However, this works fine. For the sake of completeness: I found this setting better to use: browser.fixup.alternate.enabled, as above solution still prepended .www (there's a separete setting for this (called browser.fixup.alternate.prefix).
