comment switching stopped processes in linux bash (using putty)
@niry: Or just do fg n without the percent. :) Anyway, I think he's asking if you can configure one key to effectively type ^Zfg $(tail jobs | cut -f1 "-d ") or similar.

They have managed to get E to run natively on Linux - if you're comfortable compiling stuff yourself (I assume you would be if you want to use E/TextMate!) - e-texteditor.com/blog/2009/linux-progress.

Sorry again! It turns out it did! There was an unrelated issue involving the Visual C++ runtime (which is now fixed) that caused my new problem. Thanks again, for putting up with an impatient, fickle poster. :)

Unfortunately not. It won't install again. Really, really sorry for that.

Looks like it was - I get "This action is only valid for products currently installed". Thanks, anyway. I'll try the first one.

OK, I'll try that. I think the second one was done automatically by the Windows Install Cleanup Utility, but I'll give it a go anyway.

OK, thanks. When I get a chance to try this out, I will. Unless something else comes along (;), I'll accept.

Thanks. I hope I don't have to go down that route, but a registry cleaner would certainly make it easier. I'll look at Registry Mechanic - do you think the free version would suffice?

comment How do I detect keystroke loggers in a reliable way?
Remember that it's easier to format your USB drive NTFS or ext2/3/4 rather than FAT32 - it might be slower, but it supports UNIX permissions properly - so you can set the default in FSTAB to be no-exec.
