comment How to enable Bluetooth in Mac with shortcut or command line?
This worked way better for me than fideli's answer which got me all the way to bluetooth settings but I could not tab to the on check box. This was also lot faster and easier.

@DanH thanks for the info, the bad side is not displaying any sort of legible data. It looks like one of those system tests with the vertical striped colors (only in this case each color is only 1 pixel wide).

comment How can I make Chrome stop caching redirects?
@random, restarting chrome does seem to fix it. However, I usually have a lot of windows open (ie: docs, db connections, tutorials, the page I am working on, etc.) If I am troubleshooting something it can take several tries before figuring out whats going on. I wouldn't really consider it ideal to have to keep closing all my windows. Thanks.

@DMA57361 I think maybe I will use the KDiff3 app in your screenshot specifically for merging then. Thanks.

Actually I wanted to go from 32 to 64 bit. But I am not sure how to know if the motherbaord will fit in my case. I would like to buy a BM+CPU+Case only kit but it seems like they don't sell those anymore.

@Matt is a generic barebones kit I bought from Tiger Direct. It was in 2007 though so they do not carry it anymore.

comment Suck or blow? What's better for dust?
So if you generate current to be sent to your mother board while it is powered off; what harm will that do?

comment Computer has power but won't boot
No not yet, I have been so busy lately I have just been using a different computer and haven't touched that one. I did disconnect the media reader which caused it to actually load the OS but then it still powered down immediately afterwards.

@a sandwich, I added the video card myself when I bought the pc a couple years ago, the media reader was recently just having problems though but its not pci. But I can try removing that.
