comment Over 60% CPU after shutting down all Applications
Useful - but not helpful in that it doesn't deal with problem (I have an interrupt problem... but I don't know how to fix)

comment Backup / Restore mailbox using IMAP
Ah, that would be a copy then rather than a restore... that does kind of make sense (having done something similar too long ago to remember exactly how)

comment Backup / Restore mailbox using IMAP
What do you mean by "backup and restore my IMAP email account"? The whole point of IMAP is that its server based so what's the problem that requires you to fiddle at the client end?

comment Windows 7 start menu search programs and files is broken for everything except folders
Search indexer reinstall doesn't work (or at least hasn't worked). A basic clean of the registry hasn't either. There are some other interesting things that appear to be at least a bit broken, but blitzing my profile is, erm, challenging!

That's an interesting thought. I can certainly see that the profile on this box may well be a bit overburdened with cruft.

comment Why does the file date always change to the current date?
Perforce is spectacularly not free once you go past two users - not a good suggestion (-: SVN is great, source safe is not simpler (nor is it a good idea, TFS is a whole different thing though) and in any case if I were starting now I'd probably want a DVCS

comment What does it mean to “subscribe” to an IMAP folder?
Don't forget that you may also want to turn subscriptions off - one of the benefits of IMAP is that state is (in theory) maintained on the server so you might not, on a mobile device or on a laptop (particularly a netbook) want to subscribe to folders that potentially have a high volume of traffic
