comment Copied directory appears to become larger at destination
It's simply not feasible to use something which appears to induce about a 30% slowdown in copying. But thanks.

I have considered using strace, but the overhead is ridiculous.

I tested that prior to receiving nan, I still received unusual values. Should have mentioned that.

I'll check that tomorrow. For now, going to add a bounty for someone that can create a snippet that doesn't go over 100% without simply capping it to 100%.

comment Why does WMI Provider Host (WmiPrvSE.exe) keep spiking my CPU?
Well, the best way to confirm it would be to disable it and see if it continues ;)

comment How do I create a Windows 7 USB installer with preinstalled software?
@Joe Taylor It would not be legal for me to attribute my answer as my own if I were to copy it from Wikipedia, and neither would it be right to. If you are suggesting that the demise of Wikipedia is imminent, then that's your prerogative. Otherwise, see secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Wikipedia:NOTABILITY . Notability is not temporary, and by all standards WAIK is a notable subject matter.

comment How to define a new search provider in Firefox
Looking at the source, the search on that site seems to make heavy use of javascript, which may be the cause of the problem. This ( developer.mozilla.org/en/… ) may help you in writing an OpenSearch plugin for that site, otherwise there are some search plugins for cdcovers.cc listed here (mycroft.mozdev.org/search-engines.html?name=cdcovers ).
