comment games do not launch nor give error
did you dive into the td folder under steam/common? There should be a "redist" folder which has the required redistributable library files for use with the game. Try running those to ensure you have the proper versions installed for the game.

comment Robocopy; How to copying missing files to a different location from original copy?
When /MIR is invoked, Robocopy will skip files that are already in the destination and are unchanged. Why do you think they were skipped for some other reason? Do you know for sure they are missing? Your main question really relies on knowing whether the database requires the files to be locked.

comment 11GB Standby RAM File.. Low memory warning Battlefield 4. WIN 8.1
can you provide more information about the "OS error dumping GPU working set"? I would attempt to google this but "windows OS retard" is going to give a lot of search noise. It seems like something people might benefit from knowing.

comment Zoomed-in portions of image
This is the way such things are done. If you use GIMP or photoshop, you can script/record automation to handle the basic steps.

comment Can I recover from partiton without using F8 on Vista?
Note that "factory restore" is a different than "recovery". Expect a factory restore to destroy your data. Expect recovery to maybe destroy your data. Also: I wonder if a recovery partition can be trusted since the hard drive has been compromised

comment Printing a tall booklet
For the OSX description, it sounds like you have an A4 Landscape page with two columns: one for each page? I think you want a single column on a custom sheet size of 105 x 297. In other words, do a reader galley the correct desired single page size and then export via "create booklet" which looks like it will impose the pages into printer spreads. If you plan on manually imposing the pages, you are going to need to do them two up in the proper jumbled order for folding. I suspect that the export phase is messing up because the export has no idea you are composing 2 pages per sheet

comment SkyDrive on Windows 8.1 is uploading files INCREDIBLY slowly
I meant to say "it sounds excessive even though {overhead etc}". Have you tried disabling "real time virus protection" features (if any)? Without knowing anything about Skydrive It is also plausible that the server is throttling or queuing you on a per-file basis, or you have a "passive/active connect" style problem as in ftp.

comment SkyDrive on Windows 8.1 is uploading files INCREDIBLY slowly
while your description does sound excessive, most file transfer operations have a fixed-time overhead while negotiating a connection (etc). For Myriad small files, this can take more time than the actual transfer (per file). In FTP, this would be mitigated in part by increasing the number of concurrent connections to the server.

comment Can I plug a 2nd hard-drive in the slot for the CDROM drive?
often, the cdrom is on a different data cable and PATA interface than the HD. Only pick "slave" for the new HD if it is being plugged into the same data cable as the current HD.

comment bogus page unresponsive error from google chrome
is it only on cpanel pages? There may be a cpanel bug or process which takes longer than some fixed timer which chrome uses to decide if there is a runaway script
