comment Windows 7: run powershell v2 from start menu's run command
Interesting. When typing "Powershell" in the little search box within the start menu, the new Powershell (blue background, large window) starts; from Win+R a "DOS-Box-like" window opens that displays the path ...\PowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe - but both are actually the same version. Just look different...

AltGr is an abbreviation for Ctrl+ALt - available on (some?) European keyboards.

comment Adding an animated GIF to a PowerPoint slide
Excellent - your second suggestion led the way! Obviously, the LOOP header was set to 0, causing PPT not to loop at all. Since I didn't want to spend 25$ on GIF Construction Set, I gave ImageMagick a whirl - convert -loop 10 source.gif dest.gif did the trick. Many thanks!

comment Software to convert CHM files to EPUB/Kindle
Thanks, Molly. I have been using a similar approach (hhw.exe) with varying success. There are some help files out there that use a .hhc file as their "navigation center" instead of something like an "index.html", and iSilo (Palm HTML converter) couldn't handle that. An example is the PowerShell help file (PowerShell 1.0) - would your approach work for that too?

comment Which e-reader for O'Reilly books?
Hm, interesting. I don't have an iPhone (still using my trusty old Palm T|X), might buy an iPod touch if it gets more than 64 GB one day... O'Reilly is offering several of their titles for less than 4 Euros, so that's another variable to consider.
