comment Chrome will not load a web page with an <embed> element
Thanks @random. I'm wanting to come up with a "proof of concept" web page that will work with Joe Average's computer and browser, which it does for IE. My problem is that I can't make Chrome on my PC use whatever IE is using (presumably WMP). This may be because I had the VLC plug-in installed.

comment Windows XP - what is the best way of implementing a file cache on a shared internet connection
@Brian, it seems there is no longer a free version of Wingate. The entry-level product seems to be a 3-seat license of their "standard" product for $US82. There is a 30-day free trial.

comment Why are special characters such as “carriage return” represented as “^M”?
It's also not used just with ASCII characters anymore. Windows for example allows you to detect and act on Ctrl-Del (hold Ctrl down and press the Del key). The Del key (or Delete)has no ASCII value, yet we sometimes see it written as ^Del.

comment Is there a way I can share the 3.42 GB download of Windows 8.1 from Windows Store?
In my case (Toshiba P50, downloaded 8.1 via Windows Store), after the download/install, the folder \Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download (not Downloads) contained 36 empty folders with 32 hex character names. Things might have been different just after the download.

I just tried this (Toshiba P50). I followed the instructions but was never presented with step 4. 8.1 suddenly appeared with very few questions being asked (just my Microsoft login address and password, and my PC's password). Maybe the upgrade image is lurking on my PC somewhere... There is a folder $Windows.~BT but it only (only! - <snort>) contains 230 Mb.

comment Is there a way of uploading to box.com storage via the command line?
Thanks. Just tried it with a 12 Mb file (got cURL from confusedbycode.com/curl) and it went without a hitch using the command line example provided by @phobic: curl -u me@email.com:mypassword -T local_file_path https://dav.box.com/dav/remote_file_name

Thanks for your comments. I don't have a business account so webdav or FTP is out. I'm thinking that maybe using a packet sniffer to watch what happens when I upload a file using the web interface is the way to go.
