comment In Microsoft Word, how can I prevent a find what command from being searched when mentioned in the document?
paraphrase your notes, or put extra spaces between things, just so it won't match. (or both!). S P A C E S or D-A-S-H-E-S can be used effectively too.

comment wlan0 goes down when eth0 not used
Use allow hot-plug xxx or auto xxx, but not both for an adapter. I use allow hot-plug xxx for both eth0 and wlan0, both work when connected (cabled for eth0, ssid present for wlan0, as expected)

comment Router logs show constant unknown port mapping (forwarding)?
Transmission works very well for me, including proper use of uPnP ports. It's available in the Debian Repos too. (The port :3074 entry is for your XBox)

comment connected to wifi hotspot but pages won't load
Most 'hotspots' require you to authenticate / login. They redirect ANY web page load to their sign-in page, then (if authenticated properly), they allow remote page loads. What does your browser display when you open it and attempt to navigate somewhere? Another thought: Many hotspots have a limit on total number of connected units... How many other computers are connected to this hotspot?

comment No C++ pthread support in build farm?
libglibXXX-dev installed? pkg-config? Usually errors like this are X-dev related. Find the associated -dev package to install. Pull list of installed packages on your system, and on build farm system, compare?

comment VIM only storing first 50 lines when yanking between files
What order are the two set viminfo lines? You have two lines it looks like.... an addition (set viminfo+=) and a set (set viminfo=) (note the +). I'm guess you have them in the wrong order. Better... Don't add (+=) values to viminfo. Set it all at once.

comment How can a process in “interruptible sleep” state use 100% CPU?
Missed it by that much! {/Max Smart Voice} The 'S' (stencil) process, not the 'D' (find). But you're right.

comment Displaying Power options by account picture in Metro on Windows 8.1
OP doesn't know how option got enabled... kinda hard to figure out if something you don't know how you enabled is disabled by Group Policy since you don't know what you enabled to check for a GP disabling. A rather Mind Warping entanglement there! But don't worry! Windows likely has a GP Disabling Option for that too! (But we don't know the name!)

comment Disable scrolling when launching an app (Vim) inside Windows console window
Your question makes it difficult to determine whether you're looking to disable vim scrolling, or disable the terminal window scrolling. Not that 'cmd.exe' is much of a terminal to begin with. Have you looked at the cmd.exe command line options? cmd /? ?

comment Irritating CTRL and ESC key in connectbot for android
Whoops, readline probably won't work with vim. Possible to remap keys through dumpkeys/loadkeys, but they tend to be machine global, not per-user. Was thinking maybe ctrl-b could be remapped to ESC. Hmmm, feature request to author of JuiceSSH?

comment Irritating CTRL and ESC key in connectbot for android
I use Hackers Keyboard on my tablet, full keyboard layout, arrow keys and everything. You could use CTRL-[ to emulate ESC. My bluetooth keyboard is not 'modified' for Android, so I've got the full set of keys (well, all squished up into a small form-factor keyboard). Perhaps JuiceSSH might allow remapping keys? A crafty remapping of keys in your shell might allow a lesser used keystroke to become your ESC key. (See man page for readline)

Try JuiceSSH, much better interface than ConnectBot. Very usable with bluetooth keyboard. I had same grumbles with ConnectBot myself.

comment Line length highlighting works correctly in console Vim, not GUI
colorscheme oh-la-la Renamed it, used to have the little tics above the a's. Where are you putting the two lines in your .vimrc? Try putting them dead last in the file, they may be being overridden. (Well, the highlight setting, which is why I suggested using a custom highlight group name)

comment Fdisk formatted usb not mounting
Ah, grasshopper! But did you use fdisk then gparted, or gparted then fdisk? fdisk cannot format a partition, only create/destroy them. gparted can create/destroy and format partitions. What did you do? Your wording is imprecise and confusing. :)
