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 use iTunes USB File Transfer to copy files from PC to Apple iPad, e.g. PDF files for viewer app?
This question is getting a lot of views. Should it be updated, because of software updates, it is no longer applicable? iBooks now does read PDFs, and file transfer to it from iTunes is as simple as drag and drop.

Success! I now have a 400 Gb Snow Leopard Partition and 100 Gb Windows Partition up and running with restored data! Thanks again! I'd upvote you more if I could!

Did a fresh install of Snow leopard, then recovered from Time Machine backup. Just used winclone to restore the windows partition. Currently in Disk Check prior to booting the windows partition.

I went with a 500gb Seagate Momentus XT HDD/SSD Hybrid drive. It is installed, and I'm currently working on the restore/partitioning. I'll update with results.

comment Quickly swap user agents in Chrome?
Did you even try it? It doesn't just render the page differently, the user agent DOES change. Use whatsmyuseragent.com/ to see your user agent with and without the extension.

comment Quickly swap user agents in Chrome?
I do this every day on a page that blocks the use in chrome. Pages that are IE only will load in IE Tab.

comment Migrating Dual Partition HDD to Solid state drive
Instead of creating a clone of the OS X partition, then, could I just install the new Drive, use my OS X Disk to format and restore a backup using Time Machine, then go to step 5?

or if you're going to use the same printer each time, and always print 100 copies, you can skip step 1.

comment Windows Phone 7 (Zune) and iPhone (iTunes) on the same machine (Win7)
Songs purchased on itunes since sometime in 2009 (not exactly sure when) are drm free, but any songs purchased before the switch still have the drm. I don't have any personal experience with this, but I have a friend who switched from iPod and dumbphone to Android and his music collection has been crippled because of his old DRM'd songs purchased from iTunes. I'm fairly certain any songs purchased from iTunes in early 2009 and before will not play nice with Zune/windows phone 7.

comment Extend notebook monitor
You say that you don't have the space. Will you be using the extra monitor on a desk? Do you need it to be mobile? If you're using it on a desk that may just be small, consider getting a widescreen monitor and rotating it for a tall screen monitor. Many people find it very useful. bit.ly/cl5Bcx

comment Is it possible to make a smart playlist in iTunes that's comprised of tracks from unique artists (no one artist appears twice on the list)?
I am already working on updating the app. There are (many) known bugs. I'll try to re-release. Follow me on twitter @iPlayRandomizer (just for the app) or @XOver9000 (for me)

comment Software to completely restrict Internet Access?
+1 For two possible solutions. The router option is what I would go for, but the option of routing the machine's network through another is a great alternative, then there are software options for the run-through machine that the admin on the original does not have access to.

You suggested changing it, but what VNC are you using now?

comment What does the number on the visual studio solution icon represent?
Great, I guess it never occurred to me that the versions were not simply the years, but it makes sense! (This made me think of how Windows 7 is actually windows version 6.1)

+1 for mention of the .NET target for 2008 - That's good to know!
