comment How do I associate my keyboard's media keys with VLC media player?
It almost worked when I tried it. It seems like the effect is like a media key is send two times. Thus for a key with toggle effect, play/pause, there is no effect (and double effect for the non-toggle keys). However, it may be a problem with my keyboard. It was tried on VLC media player 1.0.2.

comment How to change the zoom increment in Firefox?
This works, but Firefox must be restarted before it takes effect (at least in the most recent version of Firefox, 34). For instance, opening a new tab is not enough.

comment How do I enable terminal services on Windows 8?
This answer is more accurate than Joey's: I also see a tab named "Remote", not something named "Remote Desktop".

comment What influences compiling times and to what extent?
Cross-site duplicate (despite the title): Speed up compile time with SSD. The perhaps surprising answer is that the actual compile time is CPU bound, not I/O bound.
