comment Make minimized window move to the end of the alt-tab list
Yes. Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. I don't have any add-ons or tweaks either AFAIK...

comment Make minimized window move to the end of the alt-tab list
? The WindowsKey+Tab doesn't push minimized apps to the back of the stack for me. It behaves in the exact same way as when I press Alt+Tab (with the only exception that it select the currently focused window first)

comment Substitute large numbers of files according to style guide
@Scott Oh, I see what you mean now! Thanks a lot for clearing this up! I didn't know that it behaved that way... I'll add the quotation marks to my answer.

@JohnFeminella Do you want me to update my answer so that it takes these scenarios into account as well? Thanks

comment Substitute large numbers of files according to style guide
@Scott Also, the reason why I'm asking whether or not I should edit my accepted answer is because I'm fairly new to Super User so I'm not sure about the policies regarding editing accepted answers.

comment Substitute large numbers of files according to style guide
@Scott: Regarding #4: I'm not sure that I'm following. * is just a wildcard matcher - it doesn't expand to all of the files in that directory. I have tried this locally and it works fine. find /etc/httpd/ -name *con* returns a list of all of the files/directories under /etc/httpd that has a name that contains the string con. It doesn't give me a syntax error. Thanks for letting me know about the annotations! I've been wondering why I sometimes get notifications from comments and sometimes I don't...

comment Substitute large numbers of files according to style guide
1. Yes, you're right. Like I said, I only added the line breaks for visual appeal. 2. I'm not sure either. He added that as a comment after I had posted my answer. I'm not sure if I should update my answer now though since he accepted it... Once again, he added that as a comment after I had posted my answer 3. You're right, should I edit my answer though since it's accepted? 4. find /some/path -name *log* works fine. It is more clear however, when you add the quotation marks.

comment Missing characters when printing in linux
The fact that pdftops converts your document correctly is not strange at all since you can view the document in your pdf readers. Does this happen to every pdf document that has the phi character or is it only for this document? If it's just for this document, then maybe there's something wrong with the document itself. If not, then my guess is that gnome print cannot access the font library for some reason (permissions maybe?). That would be rather strange though but then again, I've never heard of this problem before.

It sounds like you're missing some font library/libraries on your local machine

comment Crontab No such file directory
Is this a cron job for the root user or a "regular" user? Could it be that the user that you have created the cron job for, does not have privileges to access the files/folders that you have specified?

comment How do I save log files to another partition?
1. You could specify the location for CustomLog to a path where /dev/sda3 is mounted such as /var/lib/svn/apache-logs. 2. Ah yes, you would have to configure apache2.conf in that case. 3. You can specify the maximum file size of the access_logs in the logrotate config (and the amount of files that you want logrotate to circle between).
