comment Is there windows equivalent to the .bashrc file in linux?
probably easiest to set to... AUTORUN=%USERPROFILE%\autorun.cmd so that it will use one for the current user... cool trick though, will try it when I get home... I mostly use bash lately, but this would help.

comment In LibreOffice Calc is there a hotkey to edit the current cell?
Thank you so much, will mark this correct when it's old enough for me to do so. I honestly don't use either excel or calc much... main reason I use LibreOffice is I mostly use it to update my resume once in a while... Not much else, so no need to pay $$$ for a lot of features I'll never use.

comment Inverting direction of mouse scroll wheel
While this works, my M500 has a button that lets the mouse scroll fast... I've tried changing the suggested #MaxHotkeysPerInterval setting, and it still didn't work in suppressing the error message.

comment Why do I get timeout problems with Thunderbird and Sendgrid?
I use a mail spooler/queue, and sendgrid's SMTP service doesn't connect about 70% of the time. For me it will retry every 15 min, but it is annoying.

comment What directories in a Windows 7 SSD install would you link/junction to an HDD?
Yeah, I wound up installing gametap and steam to the HDD, then symlinking them to the HDD... did this for a few things... media files are on my NAS for the most part.

comment Is there any limit on number of devices i can use with power supply
@Mirage - Well, as far as current MB and CPU, should be fine, you may need an additional SATA controller for the extra drives, and you will probably need a larger power supply, if you aren't running at least a 700W unit.

comment What's the highest performance Socket 478 processor at 133MHz FSB?
For that cost for an older P4 processor, you can get a new Motherboard, Quad-core CPU and 8GB of ram. (Phenom 2, AMD 785 MB if you need video)

comment Program to encode or mux h.264 streams in a SWF container
@Camilo, if you are using an external encoder, you can tweak things a bit. I was able to get decent size/quality out of mp3 with lame using 8-bit mono 22khz sample rate, YMMV. For the video, it sucks but you can use 3rd party encoders that get better results than what comes with Flash.

I know I will relocate the music/videos directories as they get really big, but may do the user profile altogether for space considerations here.
