Current interests:

What got me stumped recently:

  • Just couldn't figure out how to solve things just by scans in Theano metaprogramming language too)
  • Doesn't have the foresight to determine whether C++ template metaprogramming is worth the time invested in learning it.

comment How to embed formulas in a line of text using OpenOffice Impress?
It is still not possible. In Writer, you can change the anchor type. In Impress, the formula is treated as an object, and there is no way to set anchor. This is a very old feature deficiency reported since 2003 during OpenOffice era: issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=22309

comment Removable vs fixed mount points in Linux
On my system (Debian sid 2012-08-12, amd64) which has only one HDD with multiple partitions, one of which I use as storage, it lists my /sys/block/sda/removable as 0. Yet, the storage partition is mounted as removable. Maybe it's a gnome3 thing?

comment Application that doesn't stick to launcher in dash in Gnome Shell
I appreciate your thought. Maybe if the moderators migrate the question, I could answer it there, and you can vote/mark it. But anyways, for now, you can leave it as it is.

comment Is there a way to determine the decompressed size of a .bz2 file?
gzip can compress streams too. And yes, it appends the filesize info at the footer

comment Google Chrome, GDI++, and --no-sandbox
gdipp 0.9.1 has some unresolved font metrics bugs, so I'm unable to imitate your style with success. Your style uses embolden, but if I enable that, some letters have their last 2 pixel widths cut off. Maybe you should use Helium, available at the link I gave earlier.

comment Google Chrome, GDI++, and --no-sandbox
Can you post the related gdi++.ini entries on your question? The freetype edition has it under [Freetype], the Helium edition may have it under [Rasterize] and [Misc] as well, while the original edition probably has everything under [General].

comment Can I modify cmd.exe or PowerShell behavior so that tab autocomplete doesn't clear everything after the caret?
Hooray! A lightweight (it really starts up fast!) command console with just what I need! Except that you were a bit too late; I already installed Cygwin :( But thanks for pointing to Console2! (I wonder why it defaults to insert mode at first) (Note to self: preinstall TCC/LE on the next Windows box)

comment What's the proper way to use each style in office suites?
@Dennis The page tells you how to apply styles in the application. Which is good for a beginner to Office apps who's already had prior knowledge about styling (like in, for example, publications). But for someone who knows nothing about styles in writing, where can he learn about when to use different heading levels, when to style a span of words as definition, etc? It's like owning a tool, knowing how to use it but not where to use it (properly).

And to answer the other question, yes, OpenOffice and its derivatives have a style manager.

comment Does the power consumption for non-scaling processor vary from idle to busy?
I had a brief look at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU_power_dissipation and noticed the "idle power contributes significantly to overall system power usage", which is my suspicion. But the following sentence "CPU uses power management features" seems to agree with yours, though I wonder if HLT instruction is considered one.

comment Does Windows keep list of dependencies for installed programs and framework
Well, I removed the whole .NET 4 framework, which Visual Studio 2010 Express requires, and it didn't prompt me to uninstall Visual Studio. But .NET itself had to be uninstalled in certain steps i.e. I couldn't remove the multi platform targeting before some other .NET parts. So maybe it is there for some programs, but mostly it is not there.

So does this mean idle CPU is not actually wasting anything, and using distributed computing client is not really environmentally friendly?

comment Does Windows keep list of dependencies for installed programs and framework
Application cannot clean up i.e. remove the redist without breaking other programs which rely on the redist. Therefore, a dependency tree is needed to check whether it's safe for uninstaller to remove a redist. The question is: does Windows installed-programs manager have it?

comment Why every OS still can't resume file transferring?
One suggestion would be to introduce the file hash to the header. Then, the OS can compare both, and if found to be identical, prompt the user to resume copying. For files with different hashes but same name, the traditional "Overwrite/Cancel?" dialog can be used. Of course, file hash can be cumbersome to generate for very large files.

comment Why every OS still can't resume file transferring?
The complicated system can always be hidden from the end user. Even current filesystems are hardly simple, but yet people have no trouble using them because the implementations are carefully hidden away.

comment Windows Command queue?
@Wil: Neat! I've always thought that .bat is read to memory before execution. Now I know that it reads line by line after last command is executed.
