comment Adding to New context menu item in Windows Explorer
Yes, thanks. I also just learned that in Windows 7 (which is what I should have mentioned I am using), I can hold the shift key and then right-click on a folder and see the option to open a command prompt with that folder as the current directory.

comment Are super computers made with just cache technology?
Interesting, huge instruction sets, as in CISC? I'd like to check out documentation of an example of a modern supercomputer with CISC's instruction set.

comment Is BIOS read from the BIOS chip or copied into RAM on startup?
So from what I understand of what you said, upon coming to life, the CPU reads instructions from ROM, which instructions say "Copy all the startup instructions here in ROM to RAM and then set the program counter to such-and-such beginning address in RAM." Is that about right?
