comment How can I load a file's contents into the clipboard?
Suburb. Looks like I can use clip.exe for this. Would still like a non-command line version though. Maybe via Windows Explorer context menu?

Darn. I don't use a Mac. Will keep for future reference though. ;)

comment Any NAS servers that stream FLAC audio?
Bloody fantastic. Let me soak that all in. :) As far as NAS vs NAS goes, yeah, I guess I'm looking for a backend that stores as well as streams FLAC audio. For instance the D-Link DNS-323 can do the storing and streaming, it just can't stream FLAC. By the looks of it I'll probably have to settle for storing FLAC on a NAS, expose it as a file share on the network and let something like XBMC be the streaming backend. Anyway, thanks for the answer, I still have some reading to do.

@Molly I understand but I'm looking for an off the shelf NAS "appliance" and not a DIY project. :) Ideally, I'd like to just plug the thing in and have it work.

@~quack Correct. I'm looking for something that's off the shelf.

comment Is there a sliding plug-in for Compiz-Fusion?
Ding! We have a winner! After I enabled Animations Add-On I saw the Skewer animation. See my question for how I set it up.

comment Is there a Windows XP equivalent to Gnome Do?
Cool. Launchy plus WinSplit Revolution means I never have to look at my desktop again.

comment Are there keyboard shortcuts for manipulating windows in Windows XP?
@Troggy: Yeah, death to the mouse. I used to use a window manager on Linux called rat poison. Everything ran full screen. Virtual desktops and keyboard shortcuts all the way. A little extreme but it worked better than I expected. Here's a link: nongnu.org/ratpoison

Enso looks extremely interesting. A faster Start Menu? Sold!

I didn't know about these and they are fantastic! When resizing and moving it goes in ~10 pixel blocks but if you hold down CTRL you get to move things a pixel at a time. Thanks.

comment How do I disable the popup balloons in Windows XP?
@Andy, there's a Microsoft KB article specifically referring to it as a "problem", and they provide a solution! :) Seems to me if this functionality was crucial then there shouldn't be an option to disable it. Regardless, I'll take the risk.

Thanks for that but the regedit instructions that Adam linked to was exactly what I was looking for.

comment How can I synchronize Firefox settings between machines using MY server?
+1 for Xmarks. I only use it for bookmarks at the moment though. Have two profiles, one for work and another for Home and it's been working well so far.
