comment How can I tell if my domain is on an email blacklist?
Thanks, that was what I was looking for, any my domain was Not Found. I guess that is good, but now I need to figure out why I am bouncing.

So if they have "Readyboost Enabled" then they are required to meet some minimal level of performance?

comment Is there an easy way to split mp3 files?
Also, your joining method will result in a bad frame in the middle of the audio from the header and tail (where the tags are) remaining. It would be better to use a joining tool that removes these bad frames.

Yuval, the answer you accepted will cause your MP3 to be decoded and reencoded. This will really reduce your audio quality. Check out my answer on MP3DirectCut.

comment Tips for getting latte or soda out of your keyboard?
I was going to suggest Isopropyl alcohol too. It is a natural solvent for the contaminant, non-conductive, non-corrosive (won't cause rust!) You can get it cheap at the drug store too.

comment Is it possible to redownload songs you've paid for on iTunes?
AFAIK most other music services (Napster, Amazon, etc.) do support this. Amazing that Apple gets away with not supporting that.

comment How can I mass rename files?
@Pauk: It is a busy looking UI, but when you use it you discover everything you need is right there. A good example of how the usual principles don't always apply.

Is DOS or Windows Command Prompt a requirement, or are you wondering if that is the best way?

comment What is a method for dvd back up to hdd that can still be written to dvd or ipod later?
If you download from that link then it should convert to DVDFab HD Decrypter after the trial. I am not familiar with DVD Rebuilder. Get VLC or MPlayer classic and possibly K-Lite codec and you can play anything.

You are correct, that would work, but unfortunately my boss standardized on VPC 2007.

comment Is there an easy way to split mp3 files?
FYI, while Audacity is a great tool, splitting MP3's this way involves decoding and re-encoding the MP3. This degrades the audio quality.

comment Good Text-to-Speech solution for Windows
While eSpeak appears interesting, it could really benefit from a "quick start" guide. Thanks for the tip though. I'll keep working with it.

comment Deleting files in Windows XP extremely slow
The recycle bin doesn't natively support time based emptying, but I believe CCleaner ( CCleaner.com ) can do that for you. It can configure it to only clear the recycle bin items older then a specific date and then set it to run on startup or even make a scheduled task for it.
