comment Bypassing Router's DNS Settings
Too bad: since this answer was posted, opendns.com/start now first tells one to create an account. That is not really required. The instructions can still be found at store.opendns.com/setup

comment What's up with tab order on my Mac?
Firefox, not FireFox... ;-) (By the way, that preferences does not give you the Windows approach. In Windows, the GUI developers set which elements are selectable, and many are skipped. On a Mac, developers tend to make far fewer things Tab-able, but then with that preference enabled, virtually every element will be selectable instead.)

Accepted far too soon! Only 8 views, 1 answer, accepted right after it was posted. Given that accepted answer, some of us might not even read the question, or the given answers anymore, so others might not validate if the answer is true. Hence, how would you know if it is indeed the best answer...? (No need to change the accepted answer; just my thoughts of how accepting answers works.)

comment How to find my dropbox database ID
I don't expect the Dropbox team has implemented some user interface to make the folder public. So, if the Public folder is not automatically recognised by its name and location (or, in other words: if files within a root folder that is named Public are not automatically publicly downloadable), then maybe the Dropbox forum (or helpdesk) is a better place to ask?

comment Read receipt from someone who wasn't sent the email?
Then I wouldn't be surprised if only Outlook would show something like "Resent by" (like it also shows that "on behalf of" when it encounters a "Sender" header), while many other clients would ignore the extra headers... Is re-sending it (like that) ever useful?

comment How to instruct a beginner to regedit.exe?
I guess VBScript or whatever could fetch it, and create a new email message. But: can you be sure that computer has an email client set up? Maybe have the VBScript email it as well then? But: can you be sure there's no firewall blocking that?

I've never seen a keyboard that has "The Windows Key" printed on the spacebar. But if I hold down the spacebar and hit R, I get " r" ;-)

So you are saying the people in the IT department are numbnuts? (Still then, double-clicking a batch file seems easier than searching something in the registry, but it's your call.)

If in the end your goal is to change (or delete) things in the registry, then I assume you know that double-clicking some .reg file might be easier? (Or, to dump some settings, reg.exe might be saver than regedit.exe, especially if you provide some batch file to do it.)

comment Does Mac OS X support hibernation?
Safe sleep was not on by default on my Intel Mac mini. I used SmartSleep to enable it, but indeed pmset can achieve the same.
