comment Why does Outlook highlight “some time after” with a blue squiggle?
@JoshuaTaylor - well, they could use "at" instead of "for".

comment network over two routers virgin superhub
And your programming question is? Event if this gets moved, try editing it into a better question - we don't need dramatic narrative, we need a problem desciption.

comment CMD: How do I delete all the contents of all directories (in the current directory) without deleting the directories themselves?
del /s /q *.* should do it, but not a programming question

comment Why is Process Explorer not showing the .Net information in the .Net columns?
Besides not being programming related, this question is also very sparse on details. Are you looking at a common program (in which case, which one?), or something that's unique to yourself?

comment I can get IP address, but I cannot ping through that machine?
Just because a machine is on, connected to a network, and reachable from your machine, that doesn't automatically mean that it will respond to pings. Especially if there's say, a firewall in between filtering ICMP messages.

comment Opera 11 - prevent panels/tabs opening when examining RSS feeds
@random - yes, I can hide the panel. Every time. But in v 10.0 (IIRC), reading the feeds on a full width screen was Feeds -> Read Feeds. Then they introduced the single "Menu" menu at top left, and it was now 3 clicks to get to the same position (okay, it freed up a bit of vertical space to have the "Menu" menu, so not complaining too much). Now, it's turned into 4 clicks (or 3 clicks + F4). I'm just trying to retain some sanity.
