comment Windows 8 keeps losing focus
I just experienced this myself. So random. Thought I was gonna go insane. Finally saw the ISCTAgent starting to run for split seconds in the task manager Services tab and tried to disable it. Fixed the issue...

comment How to find the stream behind a Flash player
@cipricus: You wouldn't downloadthe actual video, but the SWF to then decompile and get the stream URL. Regarding your confusion, I recommend that you start looking at timestamps if you find accepted answers that look a bit weird. In this case the answer I accepted was the one that gave me what I wanted shortly after I asked the question. Most alternatives were posted long after, and in your case over 4 years after. I'm leaving it as it is since it'll probably still be correct and the answer most "raw". If I did it now, I'd probably use the Firebug version.

comment How can I identify what application is using a given file?
@ComFreek Well, ProcessExplorer might be more powerful in many cases, but for me Resource Monitor have always found the application locking the file I'm trying to do something with. I also prefer it to Process Explorer simply because it's right there in the OS. No need for an extra download and an extra shortcut somewhere.

comment Pipe output from two commands into one
Changing && with || would fix one of the issues though, wouldn't it? Anyways, no clue what a subshell is or why I should avoid it... :p

@devnull How does your method of {} and ; differ from edvinas.me answer? Or is it just two different ways of saying the same thing?

comment If you only run one OS, is Partitioning worth it?
I don't reinstall my OS frequently, but I was sure happy I had my stuff on a separate partition when my OS suddenly crashed completely and forced me to reinstall it. So... would definitely not say "there is no point"...

comment Directory links in Unix?
That's pretty awesome. Didn't know about that. Won't work very well in this case though because the final directory name is rather nondescript and prone to duplicates.

comment Directory links in Unix?
@slhck Because the path is a bit outside of our control. Annoying legacy software stuff...

comment Directory links in Unix?
@artistoex Well, first because I didn't know that was possible, but now also because that looked a bit long and annoying. Especially since you'd have to remember to do that as well.
