I like to write code and solve problems. I'm not an expert yet, but I hope to be one, one day.

comment How to make braces with Apple keyboard in Windows?
This is a ridiculous question, without some information about your keyboard layout. If you don't provide this information, others can only speculate about "universal" codes to enter this character. If it is an an english QUERTY layout, the key is directly on the keyboard, and the drivers interpret this key as it is.

Is this known as physical vs logical cores?

comment MacBook Pro with Intel graphics sends no signal to external monitor only in Windows 7
Tried this. I've used the monitor on an older MacBook pro and used the windows-p key combination. No luck. The computer definitely believes that the monitor is attached, but the monitor is not detecting any signal.

comment Easiest way to test a list of URLS for 404?
that does exactly what I originally wanted. Unfortunately, turns out, I don't actually need to look for 404s. I'm using this on sharepoint sites, which doesn't return a 404 for sites not configured, but instead displays a page that says "The Web site that is referenced here is not in the configuration database." - so I'll need to find an alternate solution and potentially ask a new question.

comment Greenscreen (aka chroma key) effect with a webcam?
Just to be clear - Adobe runs to capture the video, and apply the chroma effect, then manycam captures the portion of the screen with adobe, then skype uses manycam as its video source? I'd love to see this in action, and have the user move the mouse over the adobe screen, and the user on the other end sees a cursor fly over the user's face.

comment Does this peripheral exist? Bluetooth To 3.5mm audio
From your search I found this to be the most prominent but it needs to be plugged into power to work. Ideally, something with battery would be nice, or at least come with a car port power plug.

I can't imaging how slow running XP through USB as a primary machine would be...

comment Macbook Pro Kernel IO errors - Freezes, Extremely slow Boot
@Qosmo are there defined rules to this? I think it is still relevant on SuperUser. either way, a vote to move/migrate seems worthy, but I don't think it warrants a down vote - I still need the question answered, and I think I gave good details and formed it as a good question.

I'll give that a try later. I'm at work, now.

comment Macbook Pro Kernel IO errors - Freezes, Extremely slow Boot
@Daniel Beck For restoring from Time Machine, do you mean format the partition, reinstall and restore? Would that require cloning/restoring the windows partition as well?

comment Looking for a replacement to current Antivirus Software
Why the combination? I used Avast for years and switched to MSE. Are there risks to just using MSE, or what?

comment Resize Windows partition on a Mac without destroying data
@CajunLuke this solution does work, as I've done it multiple times. As far as growing and shrinking the windows partition with gparted, if you can confirm that it works on Mac hardware with a bootcamp set up, then it is an alternate solution, but it does not take away the validity of doing it this way. If you can confirm it works on Mac hardware with bootcamp setup, I'll strike the first sentence, but the rest is still valid.

comment Resize Windows partition on a Mac without destroying data
This is not correct. Disk utility cannot resize the windows partition. It can only create separate partitions on the HFS+ Journalled (or other OS X compliant file systems) and resize them if they are OS X compliant.
