comment JavaScript error on embedded Internet Explorer
Ah, when not having provided any credentials, a GET to xrm_ui?get=getTabs yields null rather than an empty string like for the other values: {"openedtabs": null, "tabindexselected": "", "tabidselected": ""}. Maybe the same happens when the script executes the POST, presumably with a proper authenticated session.

comment Adobe Reader DC, remove sidebar
Nice. Just in case this also works on OS X, for anyone doing the above: this may break its digital signature then. But I guess that only affects firewall settings, if Reader would need to be allowed to accept incoming connections. And I doubt Reader would need those, so no problem, I guess.

comment What happens when laptops reach 100% charge?
"does the computer circuitry switch from using the battery power to directly using the power that comes from the charger" -- I assume this differs per type/manufacturer. However, Apple notebooks might run slower when the battery is removed which "prevents the computer from shutting down if it demands more power than the A/C adaptor alone can provide", according to Apple.

comment What happens when laptops reach 100% charge?
"Keep your battery between 40-80%" and "Seldom charge your battery to 100%": this might be true if a manufacturer provides some management software for that. But if not, then stopping charging below 80 or 100% implies that you are unplugging the charger, hence will be using the battery and are going to discharge it. Companies like Apple define battery life in cycles nowadays, so discharging would add to those cycles. So my 2 cents: leave the thing plugged in whenever convenient and stop worrying about it. Better try to save energy instead.

comment Make my NAS send me a notification when it receives a new public IP
(Still then: make your script send email alerts upon success and failure. You don't want other errors to be buried in the log files either...)

comment What information do my ISP collects when I connect to a website through HTTPs?
Sorry, my conclusion is that "I don't believe SSL is a particularly strong tool against an ISP" and "compromised the secured tunnel, which they are capable of doing" are false.

Or: put them in any other location and adjust the PATH that Windows uses for searching.

comment I accidently pressed 'No' to 'Do you want to save your changes' in Visio 2007. Can I recover?
Indeed, @Paul. But, fun fact: old versions of Excel (like Excel 97, I think) would prompt you to save workbooks, but then not give the workbook it was asking about focus. It would show the filename, I think, but surely I've been fooled into saying no, looking at a different workbook when seeing the prompt. (And just in case you didn't know: new versions of Excel indeed do keep a copy for some time, when you said no, for their Recover Unsaved Workbooks option.)

comment I accidently pressed 'No' to 'Do you want to save your changes' in Visio 2007. Can I recover?
Downvoter, are you sure? I'd have thought this answer is right, but only recently I was proven wrong about similar functionality for Excel. However, I don't know if Visio works the same as Excel.

comment I accidently pressed 'No' to 'Do you want to save your changes' in Visio 2007. Can I recover?
I don't see that article mentioning that choosing "No" when prompted to save, will in fact still retain the recovery data. (That said, Excel has a Recover Unsaved Workbooks option in its user interface nowadays, which works after choosing "No". So it may very well work like that in Visio too.)

comment How do I stop my Mac from asking to accept incoming network connections?
Yes, @Chris, makes sense. So, if I understand correctly you removed all occurrences of the app from the firewall settings, and then allowed it to accept connections. So, I guess you'll see one occurrence of that app in the firewall now. When you accepted, OS X will have calculated the signature, and I assume that codesign --verify will report all is fine today. (You might want to try!) However, as soon as that internal syncthing updates itself, the signature that OS X calculated breaks, so as of that day you'll have to approve (after every reboot?), or clean up the firewall settings...

comment How can I use kickstart or something else at the command line to view ARD settings?
So... Quickly reading the full output (the above is just a snippet) it seems there's no command to "view the current settings" as asked?

comment Can you bypass a proxy server with a LiveCD/USB or Virtual Machine?
On the other hand, @fswings, somehow the question seems to suggest that there is no way around the proxy server when using Windows. Given that, using another OS does not suddenly introduce ways to circumvent such restrictions, I'd assume. :-)

Does anyone know if this also applies to the Mac? If so, then please add an answer with a screenshot to Show messages from other folders in conversation view on Outlook for Mac 2011.

comment curl capturing http status and timing the request
Nice. Not being on Windows (and my Windows VM not having curl available), before upvoting: can I boldly assume this creates lines like HTTP/1.1 200 OK - 0,016? (Heck, nice anyway.)

comment Apache serves an old SSL certificate
Nice, but weird: sites-available should not be used, unless linked into sites-enabled... Still then: please post it as answer. :-)

comment Apache serves an old SSL certificate
Just to be very very sure: can you run openssl x509 -in /home/pi/ssl/example.com.pem -text -noout to see which common name it shows?

Any updates? Did you try any of my suggestions?
