comment What is a cost effective way to set up a media server?
Well you'd have to look for some xbox360 addon, which I am sadly unfamiliar with to suggest anything. But if it were me I'd create a folder in your pc, store everything there, and use xbox to remotely access that shared folder, then use some tool to share the folder to others. Perhaps thru dropbox or plex, or xbmc. Takes some digging to find the best way forward. Good luck.

comment Using qBittorrent is there a way to skip downloading junk files?
My first goal is to automatically delete junk files, rather than having to manually select which files to download.

I have two seperate folders specified in settings, but it seems to ignore that. Some of the settings aren't very clear.

comment How do I keep a scheduled task running even though no user is logged in (Windows XP)?
Its pretty easy to do. First you need srvany.exe which comes with windows resource kit. Second, either use freeware or command line to create the service. Then add to the registry for that service. Ive had to do this to run python scripts headphones, sickbeard or ouchpotato as windows services.

comment What's the difference between the find and findstr commands in Windows?
But it's not alway's clear the exact usage and difference if you haven't used both of those frequently. So their perceptions may be different because you may have had far different experiences then they do. Part of a huge problem in learning and career's I call the Experience Gap. Long story.

comment Display Text File On Desktop
Displaying a text file, that would be updated by other software, scheduled tasks, batch files etc, seem's far less obtrusive way to give notices.

comment Display Text File On Desktop
I've seen similar tool's out there, mentioned on sites like lifehacker etc. For example klogshow. But this really should be a lightweight software. Not an image. Just a textfile that is displayed on the desktop, similar to how conky or desktopinfo or bginfo, but with just the text file, no system info.
