comment How to stop chrome/firefox downloading a gif?
To bad that quite a few users have started to upload GIFs with .jpg extension. So called animated JPEGs. Presumably this idiocy stated because some sites would not allow uploading GIFs but checked only the extension to determine the file type. Same way you do it. My guess is that if ($.trim(ext.toLowerCase()) != "gif") will catch only half the GIFs.

comment How to send the escape character on OS X terminal?
On a Swiss Keyboard it is Ctrl-¨. Why o why did the telnet developer need to use the group separator GS. So difficult to type on foreign keyboards.

comment How do special folders work on Windows 7?
I know about junction points :-). — But in this case it is the new "Library" feature of Windows 7 Explorer which brought the trouble: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/dd861346.aspx Once you know the right keyword to google it becomes all clear.

comment how to start an interactive shell with special setup
I see what you mean: c:\cygwin\bin\env.exe PROJECT_HOME=/Work/projects/this /bin/zsh. Yes that could work with some fine tuning. I'll give it a try. Thanks.

comment how to start an interactive shell with special setup
Actually more like env PROJECT_HOME=~/projects/that zsh --login -i $PROJECT_HOME/Setup.zsh — After which the shell just ends instead of becoming interactive. I think there is an option missing but I can't find out which one. — The idea is to set it up a start icon so I don't need to type the source command manually

Cool. How could I have missed that? Sadly GIMP is missing from .PNG so I still need to know how to add an additional application to the list.
