I occasionally like to answer other peoples' questions, and when I solve a difficult problem, I like to share it with the world.

comment How can I give a file a custom icon?
The video shows a context menu with the words "change icon", but never is it actually shown changing the icon. From feedback in the comments it appears as though that feature doesn't work :(

comment Is there a way to force caching of javascript / css with GET parameters?
Well if it helps, imagine I'm polling reddit hundreds of times a minute so that I can be the very first to see when the best joke in the world is posted. I can poll for the actual content much faster if I cache their javascript and css rather than fetching it each time. I know it's not changing and even if it were, I don't care, but I can't just remove them entirely (for instance using adblock) or the site becomes non-functional.

comment Is there a way to force caching of javascript / css with GET parameters?
@Synetech, that isn't even my gaol. I want blah.html?a=1 to be treated the same as another request for blah.html?a=1 and loaded from a cache. w3c specifies that the presence of any get parameter at all makes a query un-cacheable, which is why Firefox and other major browsers don't cache these requests. the v=... in my example is a version number. It never changes. There is no reason not to cached it. I gave an example of software (Varnish) which is configurable to cache requests with the same GET parameters. I'm looking for a similar solution for Windows.

@Synetech I'm willing to set up a proxy server to do this and implement my own rules, just point me in the right direction. I looked at squid too, which is similar to Varnish but used to have a windows port, but that's long dead.

Afraid not. Client is the latest stable version as is the server.

comment Permanent fix for “Do you want to change the color scheme to improve performance?” warning?
I don't see how this could be a solution. I have this exact problem and I don't even have Quicktime installed, not to mention setting performance settings like that will degrade the appearance of everything, which is exactly what the OP wanted to avoid. Frankly, I think you've pasted the answer to an entirely different problem into this question.
