I’m a Computer Scientist and Programmer; I like to hack into source code and find elegant software solutions to problems.

I believe that a good programmer isn’t just someone who’s proficient with many languages, but someone who knows how to solve a problem. Still, if you know many languages you have better chances to pick the right tool when it’s time to put hands on, so I learned a lot of them.

Apart from Computer Science, I’m also a Tai-Chi-Chuan student, an amateur tea connoisseur, and I like reading.

comment Gvim font loading issue
@romainl, if it was a corrupt font it should not work even if I load it after the program bootstrap... so I don't think that's the problem.

Oh, right. GNU/Linux. That said, I don't think many people will run xfce4 on windows - even if this is definitely possible.

This answer is 80% what I was searching for. Sometimes forcing the page to take the system colors could ruin the surfing experience, so in order to achieve 100% I suggest using the "Color Toggle" extension (in Firefox).

Yeah, I forgot. This is xfce. But I think the question is valid also for other desktop environments.

@random Oh dear, who unchecked that? Shame on me. Ok, this is the answer. Put it as answer and get your karma :)

comment Send private file to newbie
@bytebuster, +1. I agree as long as Bob and Alice are related personally. Consider the case in which Bob is one of Alice's customers. She just cannot explain security to each and every Bob she works for.

comment GNOME 3, reset GNOME 2 look and feel
@grawity By "old" I mean that is not consistent with the GTK3 stuff. For instance, if I set a different font on GNOME3 I don't experience any modification.

Searching the same for Linux, still this question is very useful (there are some portable programs listed here)
