Ahh... where's the comment that said Beethoven's 5th symphony looks like this: |        | (may only show properly with display audio drivers installed)?

comment Why is the free disk space on an external drive varying wildly while copying files on it?
@HarryJohnston: I've checked the drive and folder path, and "Compress this drive / contents to save disk space" was disabled. Plus JPGs aren't compressible.

@JakeGould - it's from Windows. I've updated the question.

comment How can I get Total Commander to recognize Cygwin symlinks?
This isn't just a Cygwin symlink problem. Total Commander can't copy symlinks created with the Windows native mklink command.

comment Chrome and Firefox will not stop loading Google Docs
Disabling Adblock entirely (via Settings -> Extensions) had no effect. The damn spreadsheet keeps auto-reloading. In years of Google Docs-ing (or is it Drive now?), I've never seen this.

comment Midnight Commander doesn't use .mc/ini file
There might be something else going on. If I edit ~/.config/mc/ini before launching mc, change, say, old_esc_mode=0 to 1, then launch mc, exit it, and check that file again - old_esc_mode will still be 0.

comment Google Chrome: current address outside of omnibox
I'm not on the dev channel actually. Chrome definitely updated itself - the scrollbars got their arrows back.

comment Google Chrome: current address outside of omnibox
I highly doubt someone would accidentally enable that flag. This coincides with me definitely NOT enabling it 4 days later, so it may be a Chrome update.

comment How can I re-enable the path in Chrome's address bar?
@Ramhound: yes, I have. I haven't installed anything new. Chrome crashed, then when it restarted - boom this annoying change. I hadn't messed with chrome://flags either. I assume there was an update, though I don't have a precise recollection of the version number prior.

Capture Fox ceased development (stuck at Firefox 6). Anyway, was it capable of recording the screen outside of Firefox?
