comment Can one take a partial screen shot in Windows 7?
@Hardwareguy but on XP you need to install something for this and other things.

comment PNG alpha rendered as black in Blender
@Derek Sorry, wish I could help really, but since this question one year ago, I didn't use Blender at all, and I'm still a complete n00b :(

Oh, and by the way, the image is public domain, in case you want it you're free to use it too. Here it is, ready to be concatenated with whatever zip: i.imgur.com/1cHoKa4.png

@Derek朕會功夫 - Cool isn't it? :D cat file.png file.zip > mix.png on Unix, and copy /B file.png file.zip mix.png on Windows. This works because 7-Zip (and many other programs) will look for the zip header (or any other valid header that it supports), even if it's not at the beginning. For this reason you can open .docx, installers, and a number of proprietary-format files straight in 7-Zip. The image itself was self-made.

comment How to disable the skype ads (advertisement)?
Just in case somebody does not know what this does, this makes any attempt to connect to rad.msn.com impossible by making its IP point to localhost. I'm pretty sure it's safe to do, but I don't know if it works (didn't test it).

comment How much information can my ISP see?
@Iszi Never played those, but it still is "for fun", in a weird way. Now, I do hope that there aren't people logging in into legacy systems from telnet or anything other that is sensitive...

@Iszi Nobody uses telnet, I assume? I only ever used such things for fun (sic).

revised Does “Mount volume as removable medium” reduce the chances of data corruption with a TrueCrypt encrypted USB hard drive?
SE Markdown sometimes needs a little HTML to support a few corner cases.

comment Get rid of MountPointManagerRemoteDatabase on external drive (under System Volume Information)
@Karan hm, I already know how to delete it, and since I keep system files visible (maybe I'm paranoid but it scares me that something is there but is hidden), it does bother me. But you gave me an idea, of running a script/small .exe every time the drive loads, and delete that folder/file. It's one solution...

comment Get rid of MountPointManagerRemoteDatabase on external drive (under System Volume Information)
@Karan I want to store data on the drive, and I don't want to have MyFolder1, MyFolder2 and "System Volume Information". So mostly "it's my drive, not Windows'". For this same reason I disable things like thumbs.db generation.

comment IBM WATSON tied yesterday Feb 14 2011 in Jeopardy, is this the beginning of a new era in supercomputing?
@Marin Yes, but imagine how much it'd suck if Watson failed to answer something just because its speech recognition messed the words (pretty likely to happen). Also, I wonder how fun it could be for them to have a Watson user at StackOverflow lol. Jon Skeet would be the Ken Jennings.
