comment Where should the .vimrc file be located on Windows 7?
Windows gvim (either Cygwin or Native) will opt for _gvimrc, .gvimrc, _vimrc and finally _vimrc in that order of priority. It unders the underscore and dot format for the vimrc.

comment How can I automatically update the title in an xterm running screen?
This works fine with screen 4.00.02 + tcsh 6.12.00. This assumes you have the screen hardstatus variable set appropriately and termcap/terminfo supports hs|ts|fs|ds.

Try using mintty with a $TERM value of either vt100 or xterm instead.

comment How to get Vim in cygwin/Windows to underline the CursorLine properly?
What is your version of Cygwin and VIM? Those commands as given work fine for Cygwin 1.7.9-1 + Vim 7.3 running within mintty.

How are you using cygwin? Are you using mintty or the Cygwin Bash Shell? What is your TERM environment variable set as? echo $TERM at the prompt

comment Stop Cron job for a particular time interval
You can further condense the check into a single date command if you want, if [ $( date +'%u:%H' ) = "7:16" ];

comment How do I kill a screen if I know the name of it?
only reason why I can't see this working is if you have more than 1 screen session named foo, use screen -list to get a list of current running sessions.

comment mapping capslock to ctrl on centos
capslock is configured by your local keyboard, not a remote server. What OS are you sshing from?

comment Windows 7 Pro aero glass remoting - any hacks to enable it?
He likely means when you go Personalize screen, the Window Color has 1 option, Windows 7 Basic, the Windows aren't transparent. Yes this is even with Desktop Composition enabled. I can get Remote Aero Glass with Win7Ultimate in VMware Workstation, but I cannot get it in Win7Pro.

comment Windows 7 Pro aero glass remoting - any hacks to enable it?
That chart is correct for RTM. I have tested against Win7 Pro and Win7 ultimate. If you remote into Win7 Pro, you won't get transparent windows, and the full Aero experience. You need to remote into Ultimate/Enterprise. Even if you click every checkbox before you remote in, you still won't get it. The Wikipedia page has citation, please cite yours.

comment Logitech SetPoint software button remapping
I had planned on asking how to rig setpoint + autohotkey to do Win + Shift + Tab for the 'thumb wheel' on my MX Revo. UberOptions is great. Another nice thing about it, it finally removes all the added profiles that I kept deleting, but kept coming back after every restart.

comment Remote Desktop does'nt maximize to fullscreen
What do you have listed for your settings under the Display tab in the RDP client screen? Is it set all the way to the right? I can RDP to my 1680x1050 session with a 1280x1024 monitor without scrollbars in fullscreen.

comment Installing Apache HTTP Server v2.2.14 on Windows 7
Branchcache is only available on Enterprise/Ultimate for Windows 7. You can use netstat -a or a program like TcpView from SysInternals to determine if anything is locally listening on port 80.

You actually don't need the exec if you ; zsh -i, it does that for you already.

comment Disable multimedia scanning in Windows 7
On top of setting it to General items, you may want to set Also apply this template to all subfolders. I have this set for my top level Folder on my External Drive. In folder options Always show icons, never thumbnails.
