comment Simplest setup on Windows to send HTTP request, get and apply regex to response, and write match(es) to output file
even just the layout of how you did your piping (with the backslashes and new lines), is worthy of a +1

comment Hidden Files In XP Mode
You really should try opening a cmd prompt and doing dir /a Another command is attrib. either of those in the directory, should show hidden or system files. So CD to the directory and do that.

comment Simplest setup on Windows to send HTTP request, get and apply regex to response, and write match(es) to output file
windows does have vbscript and jscript and powershell. i've done regexes in vbscript. batch files are very primitive, no regexes there. But if you don't know vbscript or jscript or powershell, or even if you do, then it's still totally fine and good to install cygwin or gnuwin32, you can use *nix utilities.. wget, grep, sed e.t.c. I'm a big windows user but still make much use of those utilities from gnuwin32. And if I write a batch file I often use them too. Looking at your title i'd immediately think wget and grep or sed. or wget with perl one liner to do a sed task.

comment Access USB device with command prompt
wouldn't it be a mass storage device if you can get it up in explorer? and how would you make it a mass storage device if it isn't coming up as that?

comment Where is my disk space going?
have you considered copying the data off the drive, delete the partition, and copy it back on(and consider the drive as possibly having an issue, so keeping an eye on it / labelling it)?

comment Can I increase the sound volume in my computer (Windows 7) beyond the volume control?
Can you provide a screenshot? Even googling I see nothing about "default quality". There is a volume control within right click speaker icon..playback devices..speakers..properties.. but it reflects the volume set at the volume control.

comment Tunneling a license based on smartsniff output?
well you'll have to use ssh -L. supposing the computer you can get to is 45.65.32.2 (local ip is not so relevant but say it's 10.112.74.3) and what you want to ultimately access is 10.112.72.4:9999 then try something like ssh -L 1234:10.112.72.4:9999 45.65.32.2 and connect your software to 127.0.0.1:1234 and it should go ultimately to 10.112.72.4:9999 But obviously you don't want port 9999 so find out what port it is the server uses. do this within the LAN. See what port your software connects to on the server.

you should say whether you're using gnuwin32 , or a cygwin version from the cygwin shell.

comment temporarily allow java through windows firewall?
@Darius it's not really a workaround 'cos if I wanted it to run and my firewall prompted me, then there's going to be an exception in my firewall that I don't want to stay there. (I use the click to play feature in chrome).

comment temporarily allow java through windows firewall?
@gronostaj i'm sure some of the "personal firewall" type software like zonealarm might give options like 'just this time' rather than just always or never.
