comment Mapping drive letters to local folders
NET USE simply cannot be used on my work. I'm not an admin, nor I'm allowed to share any folder. SUBST is a better option in that case.

...AND you need to escape the /c parameter, using //c instead. See superuser.com/a/526777/50251.

comment Cygwin cannot create .ssh
Yup, this is one possible problem: if you have changed the cygwin home folder to point to the Windows home, it is not enough to just set the HOME env variable. The /etc/passwd file must also be edited, in order to point to your actual home folder. Git seems to rely on that (instead of first checking the $HOME var). Also remember that, starting on Windows 7, your home folder will be on /cygdrive/c/Users/YOUR_NAME instead of /cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/YOUR_NAME.

Does it work anyway? If it does, I wouldn't be worried.

+1 I simply love Plex (and even if I do not adore the Samsung Smart TV Plex app as much, it is surely usable).

comment How to make the pointer glide on Mac OS X?
Regarding the so called bug, I cannot reproduce it on my iMac (with Magic Trackpad and OSX 10.8.4), but I can do something similar: doing steps 1 and 2, and then moving only 1 of the 3 fingers that I used to start the move operation (you can even remove it from the trackpad, provided that you do not remove the other 2).
