comment How does Google's new re-captcha work?
That seems a bit too simple. So you say the only difference here is a matter of how fast you scroll down? I guess if it's done in an instant, it might be a robot, but once this is known, the bot just has to wait a little longer to appear human. Not a good test!

comment Harddisk reinstalled - can data be recovered?
I removed the harddisk, attached it to a desktop computer. Testdisk itself was not very useful, although interesting to know it exists. Photorec - part of Testdisk - is another story. This has recovered over 10k files by now, of which 99% will be system files and probably useless. I found several documents that do belong to the user, so it seems to work. Filename and dates are gone, but that was to be expected.

comment Harddisk reinstalled - can data be recovered?
I removed two partitions, created two new ones, installed Windows 7 and stopped when the user account was to be created. Now I'm running testdisk, and it shows "Linux" when doing the deep analysis. Not sure if that will result in anything, but it does find something.

comment Why is my Mac slow?
First of all, he is not running a "very old copy of os", but uses OS X 10.10, the latest version with probably all updates. Installing the OS that came with the four year old laptop will not solve his problems but make them bigger. Installing an insecure OS is a bad advice.

comment keepass2 under debian wont open an url
Is this behavior limited to Keepass, or does this happen with other applications as well? If you would click on a link in a mail client like Thunderbird, will this happen as well? If so, this is not a problem with Keepass, but with Debian.

comment Wifi extender with its own wireless network
I think what I need is a Wifi Hotspot, and the D-Link DIR-510L seems to be able to do it all. Wired+wireless both ways, wireless+wireless with hotspot, and 3G optional with either wired or wireless hotspot.

comment Wifi extender with its own wireless network
OK thanks. But I don't want to use wire at all. The connection between source and access point should be wireless as well.

comment how to recover bitlocker encrypted partition
You can recover the bitlocker partition from backup. But wait - let me guess - you don't have a backup? Well now you know why you need backup. Let this be a lesson!

comment Use PGP/Mime with Thunderbird and Enigmail
The image in your answer is different from when you write an email, and open the settings from that window.

comment Use PGP/Mime with Thunderbird and Enigmail
Well I see that if I compose a mail with the right (sender) account selected, I can choose account settings again and then PGP/Mime is unchecked. I checked that and now it does send in PGP/Mime format without further action. So that is good. Now I've got one other problem, which is that the mails I send to myself are displayed in plain text, while they do have HTML formatting. So the plaintext version of the mail is shown.

comment Use PGP/Mime with Thunderbird and Enigmail
My mail gets converted to plain text, and when I send this to myself, the incoming message starts with -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- - not what I would expect.

comment Use PGP/Mime with Thunderbird and Enigmail
Well this is what I've done. I've checked those options already. Now if I write an email and send it, I get the message that the mail is composed in HTML and needs to be transformed to plain text. The result is inline PGP if I understand this correctly. This is all new to me, but I thought PGP/Mime meant that the signing of the mail was handled with an attachment. I don't see one.

comment Can Thunderbird wrap long lines of received html mails?
The userContent.css tip is great, but the CSS you gave didn't work for me. I used the one from this answer: stackoverflow.com/questions/248011/…

Android uses a Linux kernel as well.

comment Fix problematic number formatting
Sorry, it doesn't work. For this number it does, but it messes up numbers like 260 or 0.3.

Thanks! It's simpler, but you gave me the hint I needed: =SUBSTITUTE(B2,".","")/100

comment Export movie in specific dimensions or in the exact same dimension as the source
I'm not afraid of buttons, but don't know what I'm up against with MPEG Streamclip. I'll try it later this week. FCP will probably do all I want and a lot more, but is simple too expensive. All in all it depends on what is easier to learn, so LWKS might still be a better option.

comment Export movie in specific dimensions or in the exact same dimension as the source
Thanks for clearing that up, but that doesn't help me in any way. I know it's small and blowing it up doesn't make it better. I don't want to blow it up, that's the whole point of my question. Please be constructive.
