C++ coder with 18 years experience writing code for windows and linux.

Been playing with Django since late 2009.

comment Does more RAM usage cause more battery usage?
Apps thet free up memory also cause the termination of those apps. Android has hooks that allow it to suspend an app when memory gets full. Those apps are not brought back in until they are used again. That reduces CPU usage if those apps occasionally "check on things".

comment Why does cygwin's scp set the permssions to 000 when copying to Linux?
Just came back to the question. I'd love to accept an answer, and while umask does show some things, it's still not an answer to the question. May just be that scp is broken.

@GordonDavisson What is the point of the stuff in the curly brackets. I can't seem to puzzle it out "${PATH:+"$PATH:"}$1"

comment In Bash, how can I obtain the directory path from the previous command's last argument
Don't forget you also have tab completion and ESC dot to recall the last argument on the previous command line.

comment How do I use dual monitors with VMware Player on Windows and an Ubuntu Guest?
Seems to be more automatic in Version 6, but you still have to do the cycle monitors button.

I did reboot, I have now run rebaseall as administrator, and the problem persists. I'm going to reboot once again, and if that doesn't work, I guess I'll pull cygwin out and just reload it from scratch.

Comments support formatting using the backtick only but you don't get any decent paragraph control.
