comment How to reduce the size (disk space) of Windows 8
In the end it didn't save me that much space and I used another method to just delete the 3gb restore.tmp in the Winsxs directory. I'm more often using linux myself, and can fit 3+ chunky linux system installs in to the space Winodws takes up on my SSD, even after these tweaks.

No, there's a quite few examples of this kind of usage (with the /startcomponentcleanup switch) of DISM around such as here: tiny.cc/827h6w I've seen a similar guide here on SE too. I only mentioned the help switches (/?) because it gave me better understanding of the tool and helped me restore my database with the /restorehealth switch as it wasn't working properly at first. DISM was developed for sys admins and offline deployment images I believe, but the /online switch extends to running systems. It's using dism that has broken your install?

comment Accessing a persistent ssh tunnel
I found what I was looking for, for now (see below). In response it's a shell command, sent to the host through SSH, in this example ssh -p 00000 localhost 'DISPLAY=:0.0 firefox %s' %URL. I'm still learning to walk and I don't think using SSH will be the best way as things get heavier so any suggestions are appreciated. But for now this works and saves messing about with queues.
