comment How to get Firefox to show XML document trees in a monospace font
True, but this feels quite spammy for a plugin that was released 4 days ago and has 6 users. How are you affiliated with this? Are you really David?

comment “Growl Popup” for Media Player 12?
(Welcome to Super User! I'm not on Windows, but WMP-GNTP seems fine. However, your original answer was not providing much detail, and linking to an executable file is not too nice either, hence the downvote I guess. I've edited; maybe the downvoter will click the downvote again to remove it.)

comment What, exactly, is “Default Website”?
Are you saying that other sites on the same IIS installation would not use port 80? (I don't know IIS, but I'd really doubt that, and Vembu's answer seems to state otherwise.)

comment When using internet sharing on my Mac, one specific game on my phone does not work
Also note that in a hotel network, is't very unlikely that you can configure an incoming port in their router.

comment What, exactly, is “Default Website”?
Just guessing: maybe the site that is shown when no Host header is sent, in an old HTTP 1.0 request? Or the site to choose during a HTTPS handshake, when no host name might be known yet?

Sounds like an answer, @David! It might also be the hotel network that is blocking things.

comment How to hide external drive's Eject button in Mac OS X
Just in case it helps: I doubt it can be done. I have a Bitcasa Infinite Drive which cannot be ejected, but the icon still shows. When clicking it, OS X seems to eject it, but a second later Bitcasa tells me not to do that; I guess they would have hidden the eject button if doable. But maybe I'm wrong.

comment Why are domain names rather than IP addresses used in name server records?
Apparently, it's not even allowed to use IP addresses.

@tlund, you're right, but you already knew that ;-) (I've edited my answer.)

comment Can you make MS Word display a black background with white text, but print the inverse?
Does this answer the specific question for "but print the inverse"? (In other words: does Word still print using a white background, and then automatically select black for the text?)

comment convert home phone wiring to Ethernet
As an aside: I think that in The Netherlands such old cables are not twisted (or have a very low number of twists per some long unit of length, which I doubt will help in cancelling out interference). But things might be different in other countries.

comment Error 0x80073cf9 when installing or updating apps from windows store
Welcome to Super User. To provide some context, I added a link to a Microsoft support article which, however, has a slightly different link to that Store App Troubleshooter. I'm not on Windows, no idea if it's actually the same download.

comment RocketTab is uninstalled but still haunt me
Given Ross' answer, one might also be able to do this using the Task Scheduler GUI.

comment Why sometimes there is outdated drivers on the hardware servers?
The fact that they didn't bother to change that line might make people think they don't bother to update their site for every new release of the drivers either, Hashirama. But that's all just guessing, which is off-topic, I feel.

That Realtek site says "Best viewed at 800x600 with IE 6.0 or Netscape 7.02 or Mozilla Firefox 1.0.6 or higher."... That said, I don't think anyone can know the reasoning.

If anyone ever uses this trick without first decrypting, then please let us know here, or at How do I resize a FileVault 2 encrypted partition?

Related, as apparently (temporarily) installing Bootcamp might do the trick too: How can I make Boot Camp use unallocated space? (though even that might need decrypting first).
