comment Fixing/Extending Standard Windows File Open/Save Dialog
TweakUI Powertoy does not work on 64 bit Windows (I just tried it). There may be a 64 bit version, but it is not known if it can be trusted: pronetworks.org/forums/…

comment Taking a modern hard disk apart?
It is an old drive that is very close to failing completely - even SpinRite has given up on it. I am curious as to what is inside. Besides the PCB is also fastened with these screws and in the future I may be able to save data on a drive by exchanging the PCB of two drives.

comment Having trouble setting up my router
Similar to akf: can you ping the router itself (e.g. "ping -t 192.168.1.1" from a console.) ? If this works, can you use the Web interface to the router?

comment Which router should I buy for 3G/HSDPA using Three Mobile Ireland?
I bought it at the same time as the original subscription (from the "3" company). But as far as I know they no longer sell the W21. Perhaps there is a similar less costly device from another manufacturer (?).

comment Ports, how they can be used, and what things should be configurable
It is obsolete. There might be applications for old equipment that uses RS-232, but I don't think it is worth it. I think you would first have to find a customer that has a particular need. Then it could make sense to make a modern .NET application.

comment Ports, how they can be used, and what things should be configurable
What are you confused about? The serial ports (not USB) in PCs all conform to the RS-232 standard.

comment Ports, how they can be used, and what things should be configurable
Why do you need to use RS-232 serial ports? These days USB is used instead.

comment Ports, how they can be used, and what things should be configurable
Serial ports are very much physical. There are wires coming out of (older) computers forming serial ports. E.g. they were used for connecting to modems. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_port. For instance DTR is a physical wire with a physical signal (a voltage) used in synchronising communications between two physical devices.

Is it about USB?

comment Ports, how they can be used, and what things should be configurable
What do you mean by ports? TCP/IP port? The "things that you have control of" suggest old-style RS-232. What is a port manager in this context?

comment How can I print all of web page “Are you generic” by Wilson Miner?
Yes, this works great as a work-around. I just tried it using OpenOffice and saved some paper by deleting most of the blog comments. On the other hand I probably spend too much time doing it.

comment UltraEdit: keyboard-only way to switch focus in split view?
That switches between the open documents, not between the split panes in a document. I am using Ctrl+Tab at least 500 times per day.
