comment gcc not finding header file though its path has been included with -I
@RobHall Thanks for mentioning the library. I must have written it that way because I just went out and installed whatever had "crypt" in the name, and didn't know specifically which one helped.

@Karen927 How do I do that?

Pasting into notepad and pasting "Text Only" in Word both result in the same thing, wordsarestillclumpedtogether.

comment Can MS Word automatically insert spaces between conjoined (pasted) words intelligently?
I've now tried Ctrl-V, Paste Text Only, Paste Special (Unformatted Text) and Paste Special (Unformatted Unicode Text), no difference. Pasting into plain old notepad also pastes the words clumped together. The PDF cannot be shared though, I'll look into writing a macro myself to do this. (And of course will update with an answer if I do manage it!)

No, the words aren't together in the PDF, but come out together when copied and pasted. Could you give me an example of a different way to paste them?

comment How can I prepare an old PC for educational use by a child?
@random and other mods, I've given my requirements exactly as they are, going any more specific beyond this would require knowledge about educational software which is exactly what I'm missing. It is possible to provide a generic but usable and useful list of steps to be taken care of when preparing a PC for a kid, and that is the sort of answer I'm looking for. I hope the "on hold" thing can be removed.

comment How can I prepare an old PC for educational use by a child?
@gparyani Thanks for the Software Recommendations site link, I've added the question there. Regarding your first comment, I believe you've misunderstood the question. I already do have a new PC for myself, this is to make an existing old PC available to a child that can use it, rather than scrap it off uselessly. I was disappointed to have to put in XP unavoidably, but the benefits definitely outweigh the disadvantages of XP in this tradeoff.

comment Blurry white streaks on CRT monitor - what could the cause be?
@DanielRHicks Thanks for the response. I don't own an oscilloscope though and it looks like a "basic" model starts at around Rs. 35000 (~$650), definitely outside my budget for this work. If that or getting a professional look into it are the only options I might have to give up on this one for now.

Haha. Yes, old memories kicked in and I did degauss it a few times, didn't help at all.

comment SSH: The authenticity of host <host> can't be established
@BenVoigt Yeah, I understand that, the truly paranoid would of course get to those pages through a different unrelated network, or maybe fly to github headquarters and get the fingerprint in person :)

comment SSH: The authenticity of host <host> can't be established
"If you're paranoid, verify the checksum/fingerprint of the key using an alternate channel." For the paranoid (and for the record), github's fingerprint is on help.github.com/articles/generating-ssh-keys and bitbucket's is mentioned in confluence.atlassian.com/display/BITBUCKET/…

comment Utility to non-destructively fold or re-indent HTML
@kine I found the answer here: stackoverflow.com/questions/7151180/… especially the second comment on the answer. Running it with that config (along with input-xml yes and force-output yes) indents it mostly non-destructively - "mostly" because it still makes changes in HTML character entities, I guess you have to hunt down and change that option too if that's a problem to you.

comment Dependency problems due to conflicts when installing Ubuntu Mini
@terdon I've answered the 32bit-64bit question in the previous comment, but for now I disabled "Manual package selection" in the installer and so avoided this problem, but I'm not sure if it'll come up again if I try to use apt-get after installation.

comment Dependency problems due to conflicts when installing Ubuntu Mini
I'm installing the 64 bit version of 13.04 from help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD, and have given the guest OS as "Ubuntu 64" in VirtualBox. Is there a setting elsewhere to set it as a 64 bit VM?

comment How do I disable Vari-Bright (atibtmon.exe) without Catalyst Control Center?
Thanks. I'd gone with the ugly hack of changing the atibtmon.exe's filename to something else, this is much cleaner. I'll try it out on my system after a restart.

comment DllRegisterServer fails with 0x80070005 even on cmd opened as Administrator
@magicandre1981 Yes, I read that regmon had been merged into procmon so that's what I used. I made a filter to observe only regsvr32.exe to filter out the (tons of) noise, and also made it show only registry changes. There were many SUCCESS, REPARSE and NAME NOT FOUND results but no ACCESS DENIED.

@Ramhound Unfortunately yes, the same happens wherever I put the dll files.

comment How do I make Firefox's Google search use a region-specific URL directly?
@Bob The linked engine searches only among "pages from India" which I don't want, but the "Google IN-en - the web" one on mycroftproject.com/search-engines.html?name=google.co.in works very well. And suggestions too work on this one (mycroftproject.com/installos.php/13836/google_indian_en.xml) Thank you very much for pointing me to that site.

@Bob Thanks. I knew the keyword search method mentioned in the top answer there, but that's relatively cumbersome, I'll check the other options given.

comment Is it possible to undo a :bdelete in Vim?
Ok, I figured out the second issue, changing the expand command to expand("<afile>:p:gs?\\?/?") fixes that problem. This undo works perfectly now, thanks a lot!
