comment Make Internet Explorer 7 always get the latest version of a page?
Although this setting will solve issues for you as you develop your site, BE SURE to set your HTTP Headers correctly on your final production web server... as most users should have the "Automatic" setting selected in IE to allow proper caching as web servers direct.

comment How to track down the source of strange funny noise in Windows XP?
Do you have a windows "find" window open? I recall getting disrupted by the sound of the dog scratching every now and then when I was ignoring the window... similarly it took a while to figure out - I mention because I believe you can change the character... and well, you might have a frog! ;-) hehe Just read your link!

comment Fastest method to determine my PC's IP address (Windows)
I accepted this as the "correct" answer, however it looks like there are several ways to solve this (including the solution I came up with below superuser.com/a/382669/2422 )

Wow! 2 minds think alike! I too figured that an AutoHotKey command would be an easy way to run this... (I'm going to post my code as well)

comment Fastest method to determine my PC's IP address (Windows)
Thanks... I've actually used this many times... and it works great to get my external IP address. However I guess I didn't fully clarify myself... as I actually want the 192.168.xxx.yyy address so that within my LAN/WLAN I can connect from one device to another.

comment How can I install IE7 or IE8 on a new PC that came with Windows 7 and IE9 installed?
I don't want to open another duplicate question however I too would like to know if there is a solution for downgrading to IE8 on a new PC that came installed with IE9 by default.

comment Any option to change Windows XP default Copy Here naming from “Copy of {name}.{ext}” to “{name}.{ext}.copy”
Actually, I did manage to edit the registry and add this option to the context menu... but I think it tries to create the copy/search in the directory where my *.cmd file is, not the directory of the selected file. I used the registry settings (adjusted) from here: superuser.com/questions/65105/… to add the context item.
