comment Good player for streaming video over 802.11b
I've never found a nice way to handle set up user-friendly streaming of hundreds of files. With sharing, you just open a directory, and click on the file you want.

comment Reinstallation of Windows XP
rebuild has a specific meaning in both computing and hardware, and it doesn't apply to re-installation of an operating system. Can you please rename your question to "re-installation" instead of rebuild? Thanks.

comment Why is my Sent folder empty in Outlook on Windows Mobile?
when connected, but not while a synchronization is in progress, right click on "messages" in ActiveSync, click on the button that says "Folders", and choose "Sent Items". I think this is right; I'm working from memory here.

Meh. A real unix tool needs a recursive name that referring its heritage... like abtg [ABTG's Better Than Grep], or something. ACK? The only good think about that is that the author of the improved NACK already have a name picked out ;)

comment How can I remove noise from an audio recording?
they're not active, since they don't actually do anything. They prevent interfere passively, by absorbing the HF noise, and converting it to heat (which is almost impossible to notice)
