comment Windows command that returns external IP
They changed whatismyip.org, unfortunately; the IP address is now returned as an image, making it pretty much useless for scripting. The website "icanhazip.com" mentioned below does work.

comment How do I find out which one of those pesky programs keeps waking my machine from sleep?
I remember my sister's laptop having a similar problem. I think I disabled the BIOS' "Wake on LAN" feature, and that solved it. Might be worth trying.

comment Referring twice to the same footnote in Word
Great answer! You're not correct about Word not updating cross-references, though: Word does update the cross-ref number. To do this, you need to update all fields in the document. There's various ways to do this, but the easiest is to open "Print Preview". This will update all cross-refs to the correct numbers.

comment Is DevCon.exe still the best way to restart/power cycle USB ports after resuming from hibernation in Windows 7?
Does NirSoft USBDeview solve your problem? At least that utility is available for x64... See nirsoft.net/utils/usb_devices_view.html

comment Extremely simple web server for Windows?
@Martin: on Windows, it adds an icon to the system tray. Right-click the icon and choose "Exit" (or something along those lines).

comment Is there a wiki that supports MS Word Import/Export?
+1 for Confluence; it's the best Wiki system I've seen thus far. And it supports other database platforms as well, including MS SQL. See confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Supported+Platforms

+1, thanks a lot for the tip! I was able to get multi-touch on my 2008 Vista laptop by installing Synaptics Scrybe. Cool!
