comment AutoHotKey how to pass/evaluate parameters to functions
Bavi is right (he should have put his answer in an Answer): parameters called by a function need function("string") if they are strings, and just function(variable) (no percentage signs) if they are variables. It works if you just remove the percentage signs in your third line. I know how incredibly frustrating percentage signs and quotation marks can be in AHK: they kill me too from time to time.

comment Windows XP SP3 slow to login
@Steve: Okay, that is too bad. Looks like some bug on your PC then, good luck... P.S. Soluto took about 30 secs off my boot time.

comment How can I stop Pages from bolding/italicizing ordered list item numbers/letters?
@Donut: So have you tried what I suggested for Word? P.S. In my experience, Open Office has never failed with opening .doc files. But your file could be a specialised exception.

comment Is there any way to horizontally flip my monitor?
I think Sean meant flipping the screen literally as in a mirror, so that text goes from right to left and all...

OK, you could use it just for the final touch, after the list is complete.

comment Windows XP Blue-Screens And Reboots Instantly On Boot-Up
When I had my laptop crashing upon restart every time, using a different driver for my on-board wireless ethernet card solved it (either download a new driver or an old one, as long as it isn't the same version as the one you are using now). But I was unable to do it without re-installing XP, which you want to avoid.

comment Adding arbitrary search URLs to Firefox search bar
@Matthew: some examples that I use and work: > 1. artflx.uchicago.edu/cgi-bin/efts/dicos/… > 2. urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=%s 3. > bookfinder.com/search/…*&destination=‌​nl&currency=EUR&binding=*&isbn=&keywords=%s&minprice=&maxprice=&mode=advanced&st=‌​sr&ac=qr The Wikipedia URL that I gave works too. Just bookmark it in FF with the keyword "w"; then type in your location bar "w darwin" and you will get the article about Darwin.

comment Adding arbitrary search URLs to Firefox search bar
@Matthew: Okay, I see why you might want to use the search bar, though I must say I never even noticed the loss when I switched from search bar to location bar a few years ago. In the location bar, you can use any URL you want to search with a bookmark+keyword, as long as the query is visible in the location bar. If not, then you need information that the webiste or the 'net must provide. In practice, I am using bookmark searches for ALL the websites that I ever search in, except those that use search boxes in Flash; so it is perfectly possible to replace the search bar with the location bar.
