comment Internal UPS for desktop computers?
I wondered about this today as well. I wonder if the internal ones just aren't cost effective nowadays since companies are manufacturing PCs that they want to run anywhere on earth regardless of power standards? Thus without the OEM demand they eventually fall out of the consumer market all together.

comment Why don't some of the tiles on Windows 8 Start Screen have the “larger” choice?
Correct, but that's not the whole picture, it's possible that a metro app will also not have that feature! Also, that doesn't answer his question as to why the METRO app sometimes doesn't support the feature.

comment Why don't some of the tiles on Windows 8 Start Screen have the “larger” choice?
You said: 'Only "metro" apps, apps that support the metro interface have that options.' which is not true, it is possible for a metro app to NOT support a large tile. Your answer also isn't answering his question, which is 'why don't all of the tiles support large tile view?'

comment Having Windows XP search a stack of folders for an appropriate driver like Win7 does
Also you could use something like MagicISO to create ISO files and load them into a virtual CD drive like Virtual Clone Drive. Then you should get the same action without messing with any hardware.

comment Find and replace using wildcard character in Notepad++
Did you really mean to make all the values = 1 or are they suppose to = the number of the option, so in this case they would be 1, 2, 3 respectively?
