comment Windows fails to start immediately after factory restore. Faulty hard drive?
@Moab: Do you have any basis for suspecting the hard drive and not the controller? I can replace the laptop completely with something better for not that much more than replacing just the hard drive in this one. (If I had a hard drive lying around I would try it, but I don't.)

Given the context of the question, this is actually a very good point.

comment How do I save an image PDF file as an image?
@Xonatron: No. One image per page. The %d in the output file name is a variable that is replaced with the page number. (Almost certainly raw numbers, not the number inside the PDF.)

comment How do I view my clipboard history on OS X?
I find that any time I have the QS clipboard plugin enabled that almost every QS action becomes unbearably slow.

comment After-the-fact remote nohup with tcsh
It might be worth pointing out that sending "Ctrl-Z" to a foreground process and sending SIGSTOP to its pid are the same thing. (SIGCONT starts the process back again.) I don't know if this would be helpful for others in the same situation or not, but, in my quick testing, sending SIGSTOP followed by SIGCONT duplicates "Ctrl-Z" followed by bg.
