comment fc-match gives the same font regardless of query
@meuh I'll take a look at that manpage, thanks! I've added a link to the output of that debug information, but you can probably imagine it will take a while for me to sort through. Thanks for the pointers!

@Larssend Perhaps my self-answer gives you an even better clue as to what might be going wrong? (Thanks for the conf-file lead, by the way.)

Re-installed all packages with pacman -Qns | pacman -S - and rebooted – still no luck.

@Larssend No luck with the manual remove / reinstall approach :(

I did find englanders.us/~jason/howtos.php?howto=fontconfig (scroll to the bottom) and am going to be trying the 'hands-on' approach, as it were. Unless there's a better option, of course :)

@Larssend Hmm, any idea on how to completely remove it? pacman won't let me uninstall it since it's required by other packages (and there doesn't seem to be an option to force the matter). I tried forcing an install (which conveniently updated the font cache), but I don't think it removed any of the existing files.

@Downvoter, care to explain?

comment Is it possible to have emails at a registered domain without hosting?
@DouglasThomas I think you misunderstand. I'm not looking to have distinct email addresses. I don't need a place to store the email; gmail will be that (which is still free, unless you're talking about Google Apps). Frankly I know it's possible because I'm doing it right now with my registrar.

Well, Google is definitely accepting emails sent to addresses at my domain…

Isn't Google Apps something you set up with a hosted solution?

Can you expand on what you mean by "Google doesn't recognize the domain"?

comment How do I access the application icon's context menu with AutoHotKey?
@Karan I'll try it out here shortly -- personally, I'd prefer a more abstract syntax than asking Windows for the handle and calling DLLs with this information.

Someone who shares my name came up with an alleged solution, but I feel like ten years is plenty of time for new syntax to have been introduced.

@ultrasawblade For NFS mounts, I think so. But this may not apply to CIFS mounts, for instance. I'm not sure.

I fear this might truly be the case, but I'll wait for more exposure before I consider the case closed -- I'm curious to see if others have come up with various hacks around the problem. I see the logic in your point, but there are ways (e.g. for NFS, rpcinfo and showmount) to make very good guesses.

comment How can I determine the IP of a remote host in a shell script?
@Kenster the latter – alias resolving to different IP

comment How can I determine the IP of a remote host in a shell script?
I am very curious though -- can this answer be improved? It seems odd to me that I must use two calls to grep.

comment If I install a Linux VM, will I be able to work with ext filesystems from my Mac?
@barlop Well, now that I know it's possible, the how is a natural next step :) Thanks for the link!

comment Defining faces for syntax highlighting in Emacs
@lawlist The if is evaluated as one would immediately expect though; I simply use it as a quick-toggle construction. That is, it works when the test is t.
