comment De-duplicate Firefox bookmarks
Xmarks certainly looks good, but I have a pretty large set of bookmarks (30,000). Any idea if Xmarks will be able to handle that without making a mess? I had tried it in back in the past when it was Foxmarks, and it seemed to act all buggy. (asked on webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/31940/xmarks-limitations)

comment Is there a way to change the permissions of a series of directories on Windows 7 without getting a dialog box when it can't change the rights?
IT guy told me to change my permissions on my entire hard drive - Why? Windows comes with a good set of default permissions, there is almost no good reason to change the permissions on the Windows OS drive.

comment Using SSH, transfer webURL to remote machine
If you have remote access to your home machine why don't you simply ssh to the remote machine and run wget/curl from there?

comment Is there an equivalent to ssh-copy-id with OpenSSH in Powershell?
Their might be a way to do it that is more idiomatically powershell. Though the bulk of what is being done is on the server site. I believe I saw a .NET SSH client somewhere at one point in time, so you might be able to avoid using plink.

comment Using Powershell to migrate folder rights to another server
The way it is currently asked, I doubt you are going to get a good answer anywhere. 'Give me a tool' questions generally don't go over very well.

comment Is it really impossible to restore the recovery partition on samsung laptops?
Meh, I never saw any value in a recovery partition. If you make a backup of your system in its 'recovered' state, then you have what was in the partition anyway.

comment SSH Not Working After Installing DD-WRT
Try connecting with a different IP. If you haven't already, try power-cycling the device. Past that, pull the flash drive or drive with the root+boot filesystem from the pogoplug, and mount it on another computer and see if you find any issues in the logs.

comment How to get google chrome to stop changing the address I enter?
Why not temporarily disconnect your Internet connection? The fact that you can't get to the page though seems to indicate that you are not trying to access the device properly. Why not try temporarily connecting your computer directly to the device, and nothing else.

comment Trying to Set Up SSH Tunneling To MySQL Server for MySQL Query Browser
Why are you creating the tunnel on the web server? Shouldn't you be setting up the tunnel in putty? Doesn't your web server already have access? I am having problems following what you are trying to do here. Do you want to access the mysql server from your Windows client where you are running putty? Or what?

comment Very low latency streaming
If you want low latency, then don't try to run it through a computer. I am somewhat surprised that you got it as low as you did.

comment Linux Filesystem which must not be unmounted
@terdon, you are right the / will always be in use. But since the question was about an external drive, I was assuming that the request was about some kind of storage he was setting up for data which programs will not keep open the entire time. Perhaps my assumption is bad, but without explicit constraints in the question I think my answer might be helpful.

comment Is there no SMB/CIFS client component in Windows?
Yes it is required. Try stopping it, and you won't be able to connect to anything.
