comment How can I resume a stopped job in Linux?
% is awesome, thanks! As a touch-typist, I find fg very irritating (same finger). But then, so is cd.

comment Router handles wrong IP address
I am on linux. I ran a factory reset of the router, which solved the problem. No one had logged in on the router around the time what the fault started to appear, I'm tempted to blame the router's (lack of) robustness.

comment how to reset /dev/ttyS0
I did just that and could kill my process. However, my /dev/ttyS0 is still busy after this. /var/run/screen/S-<user> is empty. How do I free ttyS0?

comment emacs buffer color control characters
I hoped so, but no. I tried both M-x ansi-color-for-comint-mode-on and adding the hook to init.el (and even restarting after that), but still no colors.

comment Emacs auto-fill text indents the second line
Problem solved. I had set indent-line-function to 'insert-tab long ago. I thought only for C, but I was wrong. In the old commits, reading the init file caused errors (since running with a newer emacs than a the time of the commit). No code after the first error was run, omitting the setting of the indent-line-function. In hindsight, a good answer to my question would have been to ask if I was setting indent-line-function anywhere (do write this answer if you want the rep :) ).

And I could pinpoint when things started to go wrong, see my edit.

comment Emacs auto-fill text indents the second line
You are correct that it seems to work with -Q, my configuration must be wrong somewhere. The thing is I only see that in fundamental mode, not in e.g. text mode, but I haven't voluntarily touched fundamental explicitly. How can I check what I might have done to fundamental?

comment Can't locate Autom4te/ChannelDefs.pm in @INC (when it definitely is there)
Did you solve this problem? In that case you should post an answer, I'd be happy to know.

comment Increase of virtualbox disk size
This might in turn be because I changed the disk size while snapshotted, but I cannot reduce it anymore with modifyhd. I get "VBOX_E_NOT_SUPPORTED".

comment Increase of virtualbox disk size
You are likely to be correct, but I cannot remove the snapshot. When I try to delete it (and merge to the vdi) I only get an error message "VERR_INVALID_PARAMETER", Component Medium, "VBOX_E_FILE_ERROR (0x80BB0004)". The "Details" tab gives now "Mind.vdi (Normal, Inaccessible)", but the VM does start normally.

comment Windows 7 task bar in auto-hide, hide again after notification
It is not the icon in the system tray that is flashing, it is the button in the task bar.

comment How to control Windows 7 snap feature with two monitors?
@mgutt: DisplayFusion snaps to monitor edges (even if there is another adjacent monitor). The window does not get height-maximized though.

@AdamV: mouse-based, or win+shift+up.

comment How to reload windows color settings after change of registry key?
A way to send messages without writing a C function is apparently autohotkey: autohotkey.com/docs/commands/PostMessage.htm , but even there, no luck for me.

comment How to reload windows color settings after change of registry key?
I have the same problem. I read about WM_SETTINGCHANGE, to be broadcasted to all windows social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/csharpgeneral/thread/… , but I couldn't make it work. Maybe this link helps, in that case tell me if you figure it out!

comment How to increase contrast of Windows 7 Menu Item highlight
Changing wrong monitor settings (brightness and contrast) is a good suggestion!

comment How to increase contrast of Windows 7 Menu Item highlight
I think these parameters are taken into account only if the user is not using an Aero style. It may only work with "Windows Classic" theme.

comment git bash icon on windows 7
I did not try to rebuild the icon cache, but creating a new shortcut by myself did the trick.
