comment How to add a font to the Cmd window choices in Windows 7 64-bit?
@RookieTEC9 the font I was attempting is monospace ( not Monotype, that's a brand).

comment Sort by multiple columns in Windows Explorer 8
Thank you! I've been trying to order my music by artist, year, album, and track, and I could almost get it to work. This works perfectly.

comment Why can I see a font even if it is not installed
Adobe applications have a couple of fallback fonts they can use when the requested font is not installed or embedded. Each character is adjusted so it takes the same width as the original font, and it tries to match the boldness too.

comment How do I compare binary files in Linux?
@DanielBeauyat compressed files will be completely different after you encounter the first different byte. The output is not likely to be useful.

comment Photoshop Borderless printing doesnt seem possible
In that case I'd have to say that the printer driver is missing some crucial options. Not surprising, HP has never been known for driver quality.

Try the "Advanced" button on the printer driver then.

If you scroll down what's under "Position and Size"?

comment What is the maximum amount of ram a 64bit machine can theoretically address?
@Malvineous I was talking about something more fundamental, even if you limit yourself to 63 bits you can directly address 9223372 TB. And SSDs in a RAM slot already exist, see Sandisk.

comment Getting proper resolution with Windows 7 and older monitor
All I know is that Windows Update offered me an optional update that said it was specifically for that driver. Unfortunately I don't know what the version was before the update, nor did I check to see if the update installed successfully.

comment Getting proper resolution with Windows 7 and older monitor
I agree, nice comprehensive answer - this is totally worth the +50 you're getting. And for the record, the driver I had was not the one originally bundled with Windows 7 but one that I received through Windows Update.

comment Getting proper resolution with Windows 7 and older monitor
@and31415 I'm asked to approve about 4 different apps when I log in. The utility I spoke of is called GfxUI.exe and it's located in Windows\System32. The resolution seems to be holding. TotalDTDCount is still 0. Monitor Asset Manager is now erroring out when I start it so I'm unable to rerun those tests.

@and31415 you've actually solved my problem. Please leave an answer so I don't have to waste the bonus.

comment Getting proper resolution with Windows 7 and older monitor
@and31415 I tried the Intel utility that was installed with the driver and it let me create a 1280x1024 profile. Once I unchecked the "Hide modes" checkbox I was allowed to choose it, and it's working! Let's see if it will hold this time.

@and31415 the driver version reported in driver properties is 8.15.10.2869. Regedit shows 5 DTD entries but TotalDTDCount is 0. Results from Monitor Asset Manager are at pastebin.com/XZMtc7ti pastebin.com/ih89yB4V and pastebin.com/qEatJDNZ.

comment Getting proper resolution with Windows 7 and older monitor
@and31415 the adapter is built into the motherboard. There are 4 hardware IDs listed in device manager: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E12&SUBSYS_3036103C&REV_03 PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E12&SUBSYS_3036103C PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E12&CC_030000 PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2E12&CC_0300. The driver version is 8.15.10.1749 and it's Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.

comment Getting proper resolution with Windows 7 and older monitor
Powerstrip isn't free, it's $30 shareware. But it did point out to me the way to get 1024x768 working, by setting the refresh rate to 60hz, so it was helpful for that. Still couldn't get me to 1280x1024 so I uninstalled it. As for the aspect ratio difference I suspect that the resizing logic in the monitor simply makes the pixels non-square at the lower resolutions since it has to rescale them anyway. The difference isn't enough to be noticeable.

comment How do I direct inbound network traffic to a specific internal IP based on the requested hostname? (Win 2012)
@ShaneC, that's exactly the problem. Outside the network everybody needs to get the same IP address, the external one. The protocol doesn't allow you to return two IP addresses, only one. You then have to rely on other information, namely the port number, to get it to the proper machine.
