comment Delete `--_--.sparseimage`
My guess is that rm -- './--_--.sparseimage' should work, given you have the permission to delete that file.

comment Opened a JPG picture with notepad, pasted all the “text” to a new notepad file, changed to .JPG and it no longer opens. Why?
I doubt that notepad.exe is a .NET executable.

comment Hide non printable characters in vim
Thanks for your effort :) by "interpreting control chars" I mean that ^H is interpreted as backspace and deletes the character before it when redrawing the screen (at least under msysgit). I might be wrong though, but it seemed like this was the behaviour. (Also confirmed under Linux und gnome-terminal). ^H (backspace) gets "printed" (and interpreted). It will not be displayed as a single character but delete the character before it (but there's probably no way around it).

One thing I also noticed, control characters are now intpreted by the shell as well (which can mess up the display). Any way around that?

comment command-not-found. Can I turn off verbose error reports?
Are all packages at their current version? command-not-found is a application that suggests the correct command to run or package to install when you have a typo in your command line or try to execute an application that is not installed.

@speakr: oh yeah, right. Edited my comment to reflect that. And now I see that this is already covered by your answer. Sorry for the noise!

comment Notepad++ - Removing the first column in a comma separated file
Why not ^[^,]+, and replace with empty?
