comment How to reliably keep an SSH tunnel open?
@Lambart but if the connection is really flaky and drops connections often, it at least detects a dead connection and gives the opportunity to retry earlier.

comment How can I specify an /EXCLUDE file with spaces in it to xcopy?
I suppose, however, that robocopy probably works in this situation and is available as long as you’re targetting a modern Windows.

comment Configuring network after initial install of gentoo?
When I configure wifi via CLI, I configure wpa_supplicant.conf as root directly and initialize it through /etc/init.d/net.<wifi iface>. When starting the init.d script, it should give some message about how wpa_supplicant was launched but the script can’t wait for the interface to come up because it doesn’t know when it’ll actually get connected to the network. This works poorly in real mobile use with configuring new nets on the fly. If having it working under KDE is sufficient, I’d just be happy with that as a manually-configured wpa_supplicant would conflict with KDE/networkmanager.

I’ve added a section attempting to summarize how to reconfigure the kernel.

comment Configuring network after initial install of gentoo?
@StevieG, If you used genkernel to compile/configure your wireless device, it should “just work”. The only other thing I can think of is that perhaps some firmware package specific to your wireless card is necessary. But, that error message from iwconfig does mean your kernel is missing the driver (or, perhaps, the driver was missing the firmware necessary to initialize). You can run lspci (perhaps from the livecd) or, from the livecd, examine the output of lsmod to try to see which drivers the livecd is using to help you configure your on-disk kernel.

comment Is it possible to use the IE10 App without making Internet Explorer the default browser?
I will guess that this situation probably arose because of European anti-lockin law or whatever causes Windows N to exist.

comment Focus Follows Mouse or Sloppy Focus on Mac OS X
Shouldn’t sloppy focus work just fine with the menu bar? If the user only needs to coast the mouse over the desktop to get from the window to the menu bar, the original window should still be focused and the menu bar unchanged…

comment How do I highlight “copy this” text on a website so that I might middle-click paste?
An example ting was Google’s productforums. If you click the permalink button for a post such as (my post) productforums.google.com/d/topic/voice/f_kYf_SNyAY you will get such a forced-highlighting <input/>. I now see that the button itself is a link and right-click + “Copy Link Location” do populate X11’s middle-click clipboard properly. This might nullify the point of my question, I guess ;-).
