comment Port not open when using an SSH tunnel
+1 yes pretty good, I hadn't noticed that in the netstat results 'cos i'm used to windows netstat. With ssh you can also do *: as a shorthand for 0.0.0.0:

care to include what that output would look like depending on whether it's on loopback vs on "any"? (so that your answer shows how to determine that)

comment BSOD Memory Management but memory seems fine
Also try with just one of the new modules, then with just the other. Does it just go bad with one? (and obviously if precise troubleshooting proves a RAM issue, and a diagnostic utility (or a few diagnostic utilities) doesn't/don't find a problem, then you go with what you proved obviously).

comment BSOD Memory Management but memory seems fine
Take a picture of the BSOD. Get the details of it. I can't believe you got a BSOD and didn't think to include anything of what it said. Particularly the code it gives. It's like saying you got an error message and not saying what the error message was.

@naxa So, while it may be worth saving closed questions you find useful..(though that can be an issue as there's graphics, you may get a long filename/folder name if not careful with saving.. and it may be multi page like those great ones that were closed and deleted).It may be worth having files on programs and perhaps, files on tasks. There are many forums where I find useful info, and I will and have outlived lots of them but my own collection of notes lives with me, can be on an online backup, and has been more reliable than any forum.

comment paintbrush or mspaint executable file?
@naxa That is a good point, I hadn't thought of that. I just searching it on archive.org wasn't there initially but it let me add it to the wayback machine, web.archive.org/web/20131119101011/http://superuser.com/… Other than that, one could store it locally -one reason why I sometimes like to have a link in there literally is so I or anyone can copy/paste it easily. Often if i'm looking at a program like wget, and I see a question with something useful, or anything online.. I might copy/paste parts into a wget.txt file.

@naxa yep, though it's ok in that it's on the site, I quoted info from his link in an edit I made to my question, so as to include it. I did that when he posted it.

@naxa don't know, but fortunately I don't think questions necessarily lose much value from being "closed". It's still there(not deleted thankfully) and if there's anything to add to the question or to an answer, then you could add a comment.. the fact that new answers can't be posted won't kill it.

revised How to reset the window position of an application
I've now posted my comment as a solution, and has been accepted so I removed the note saying I answered it as it would now be superfluous, +also the pic I used to illustrate was from xp proper.so an improvement to the one in the question which used a win7 pic.

comment How to reset the window position of an application
What applications in XP override the right click menu such that there is no move option? 'cos for Chrome if I right click the chrome icon in the taskbar, I see chrome adds a chrome "task manager" to the menu, but there is still a move option. I can right click then click Move, then use my arrow keys and move it.

comment How to reset the window position of an application
note that in windows 7, if you shift right click an icon you can tile or cascade just "those" windows, but xp doesn't offer that as far as I can tell(and after 10 years of use!), but you can in XP for all windows, which will at least get your stray one within viewable boundaries on screen.
