 Feb3 comment How can I control the order of files in a ZIP archive? @psusi — I don't disagree, but that's what's in the spec. Feb3 comment How can I control the order of files in a ZIP archive? @Paul — I'm checking by opening the .epub in a text editor and examining the file table directly, so it looks like this approach simply isn't working for me. I'm going to take the Python hammer to the problem and see if that doesn't fix it. Feb3 comment How can I control the order of files in a ZIP archive? I gave this a try in 7-zip (creating an archive with only mimetype, then adding the other files), but had no success. The mimetype data came first in the file, but the file table seems to be alphabetized. Feb3 comment How can I control the order of files in a ZIP archive? @Paul — Surprisingly, that didn't work. :-/ Sep28 comment How can I throttle Netflix' bandwidth usage? I stand corrected. After a couple of weeks of watching our bandwidth usage, it seems to have made a big difference. My initial test was based on video quality, which is only minimally affected. (Yay!) Sep12 comment How can I throttle Netflix' bandwidth usage? A brief test suggests that it doesn't affect the Xbox player. :-/ Sep12 comment How can I throttle Netflix' bandwidth usage? To the close-voter: I was expecting the answer to be router-related and therefore appropriate for this site.

I was under the impression this setting only applied to in-browser player? Jul29 comment wget and cookies.txt — domain.tld vs. .domain.tld I think I see where I was confused; I was focused on the "domains must start with a dot" part of the spec, but if the ";domain=" part of the Set-Cookie header is left off completely, you get a no-leading-dot hostname. Thanks! Jul22 comment How can I “invert” a directory structure? Nice! A word of caution, though — watch out for name collisions between folders and subfolders (e.g. "foo\bar" and "bar\baz"). You can get around this by changing "%~ny\%x" to e.g. "C:\target\%~ny\%x" (and omit the first line as previously discussed).
