comment Why does Windows Vista's Notepad randomly move the cursor after saving a file?
How long the bug has existed -- I have used versions of Notepad in Windows 3.1, 3.11 for Workgroups, 95, XP, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. The versions from 3.1 to 95 didn't have this bug, and the versions from XP to 10 do have this bug. In this blog post, the author says he's noticed the bug in Windows 2000 and after. I guess somewhere around Windows 2000, Notepad was revised to use EM_FMTLINES, and this bug has remained ever since.

comment Why does Windows Vista's Notepad randomly move the cursor after saving a file?
Write -- I'm pretty sure Write has nothing to do with Notepad. Windows 3.1 and 3.11 for Workgroups had both Notepad and Write, they were separate programs. The modern equivalent of Write is WordPad, not Notepad. I don't remember a bug like this in Write, but if there was one, I suspect it's not related to this Notepad bug. The Notepad bug is caused by poor use of the EM_FMTLINES message of a multi-line edit control. I think Write and WordPad use rich text controls, so I doubt it's the same thing. @KrisCraig

comment visit from 192.168.6.145 on my private 192.168.1.255 network?
What is the exact model of your Netgear router? In your router's settings pages, there's usually a place where you could change the LAN IP address (currently set to 192.168.1.1). Right under that will be the LAN subnet mask. Both the IP address and the subnet mask together determine the form of addresses allowed on a particular network. (If your Netgear's LAN subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, then the devices on the LAN can have addresses of the form 192.168.1.x. If the LAN subnet mask is 255.255.0.0, then the devices on that LAN can have addresses of the form 192.168.x.x.)

1. What is your Netgear's LAN subnet mask? 2. See if your Netgear has a list of connected devices. If 192.168.6.145 shows up with a name or MAC address, you may be able to guess what device it might be.
