comment Windows 7 Goes Down, but Machine still Running, eg, Fans, CPU, etc
I double checked anyway, and these display/sleep/screen saver settings are the same ones I've had for quite some time...

That is a good idea - thanks for that...

comment Using USB 3.0 Flash Drive or Solid State Hard Drive with USB 3.0 or SATA as WebServer
@Journeyman Geek - the point here is to gain speed and retain portability. Obviously I can get more speed mounting internally, but then I wouldn't have portability.

I tried this but it didn't work. I think it was a bug so the reinstall worked... Thanks anyway, though.

comment How to remove IIS 7 on Windows 7
Does this uninstall it or just turn it off? What if there is a sever misconfiguration that needs to be fixed - will turning it off and then back on actually do anything?

comment Toshiba Satellite P755D USB 3.0 Drivers Missing - Windows 7 Professional
You got it! That worked... I previously installed a chip-set driver package from the Toshiba support site that I thought had these drivers but it didn't. I guess I should have gone to the AMD site. Anyway, thanks a bunch for your help. Enjoy the +50.

Yes it does, and I tried the drivers for the chip-set according to Toshiba. I will try your recommendation and see what's up as well. Thanks.

comment Toshiba Satellite P755D USB 3.0 Drivers Missing - Windows 7 Professional
Good option, but both of these drivers I have tried to no avail ( when the problem first started... they showed up on another Toshiba site)... Oh yah, I only found 2: Satellite P, P755, Windows 7 64-bit, USB-driver.

OK, thanks. Not too familiar with this syntax, but am getting error when using this: LOAD DATA INFILE '/tmp/my_large_file' INTO TABLE helperTable (lineContent) FIELDS TERMINATED BY '\n'; I've searched around through docs and nothing is popping out. Any thoughts? Sorry to bother you with this.

I attempted to use you SQL code above and it seemed to process but then when I ran the query to view my lines, it just gave me the first column of the tab delimited line. Each of the lines is tab delimited. Is there any advice you could give me to get all the lines into the table, as expected?

Thanks again. I took the sed answer (because it gave me more immediate pleasure ;--) but gave you an up-vote because I will use your method in the future. I appreciate it.

So this is a good solution, indeed. I got it to work with the sed command below, and identified my lines. But now I have a follow up question that the database method may be better suited for. I now need to delete a couple hundred lines from the file.

Yes, I agree with you Paul. I wrote a Python script and it definitely took forever to process the file. I have the sed job running now and I imagine it will take quite a while to complete. But testing with the beginning of the file appears promising. Thanks.

@Paul - unfortunately, they are not the same length.

comment Using 'head' or 'tail' on HUGE text file - 19 GB
Thinking of writing a quick Python script to read the lines and print the ones I need to file, but I can imagine this taking a long time...

comment mount Command Works, but fstab Version Fails - Samba Issue
So your method worked. Not sure why it didn't before, but after some restarts and rewriting lines, it's working. Thanks. Now to get the credentials file to work ;--)
