For some reason this question (from Oct 2010) has more recently been deleted but was still available on stackprinter.com. I had the accepted answer and was looking high and low for it to use as reference on another question.

comment Is a “System Temperature” of 51 degC (123 degF) normal / OK?
Wow, what a difference! But if it was sparking then there was definitely a problem with efficiency! lol. (Maybe also an airflow issue with the fans on the PSU?) I supposedly have quite an efficient PSU as it happens (80PLUS certification).

comment Change date format in Libre Office
This looks as if the locale/language might not be set to the desired locale?

comment Turn off change file extension warning in Windows 7
If, like me, you often get this warning when creating a file of a certain type (ie. creating a new "Text Document" and renaming) then you could add the desired type to the "New" context menu instead.

comment How can I add an item to the 'new' context menu?
If you are having problems adding an entirely new file extension (rather than simply adding NullFile/FileName to an existing entry) in Windows 7, then see this other question... superuser.com/questions/588647/…

comment How can I add an item to the 'new' context menu?
In case anyone is wondering, the FileName entry appears to override the NullFile entry mentioned in other answers. You don't seem to need to delete an existing NullFile value. However, having both entries does seem to confuse some other 3rd party utilities, such as NirSoft's ShellMenuNew. (Windows 7)

Does this allow you to add new entries? From the screenshots and description it doesn't appear to.

comment Audio front panel noise?
...and the audio from the rear-panel connector is perfectly OK? (I have the same problem.) Unfortunately, it appears to be surprisingly common for front-panel audio ports to exhibit this kind of static when coupled with front panel USB ports.

You seem to have curly quotes in your very last example - is this intentional?

comment Copying image from Dropbox to NAS results in property loss warning
One thing I have noticed with Teracopy on Windows 7, however, is that the directory is not always refreshed when copying/moving files!? I often need to manually refresh the directory listing to see the changed files. I've changed the settings so that Teracopy only kicks in when "Scroll Lock" is off - and this gets around this.

comment Wifi password VS MACs filtering - in terms of speed vs security
You are talking a lot about WEP encryption!? Are you actually using WEP on your network?! This could be contributing to your problem. You should not be using WEP, you should be using WPA2+AES instead. Not only is WPA2 much much more secure (and supported by all WiFi certified hardware since 2006), it is also much much quicker on new hardware!

comment Copying image from Dropbox to NAS results in property loss warning
Thanks, TeraCopy works well and does indeed suppress the copy warning. The fact that TeraCopy integrates seamlessly with Windows Explorer's Copy and Paste functionality is a massive plus. Yes, it would be good to know exactly what properties are being omitted in doing this, but it would seem to be Dropbox specific in this case and nothing of any value is lost.

comment Is a “System Temperature” of 51 degC (123 degF) normal / OK?
Thanks, having since chatted with a few others, this relatively high system temp seems to be reasonably common/normal for this particular configuration... H60 Cooler, GA-Z87N-WIFI motherboard and SFF case (Fractal Design Node 304). The system temp sensor is apparently in a position that doesn't get much airflow. I had previously tried running it without the case on, but that made little difference. However, I have since bought an additional spot fan so I'll see how it goes.
