comment How to find the process(es) which are hogging the machine
I'm looking for something more high level. It should run vmstat and analyze the numbers for me, so I don't have to know what "cs" means and whether a big "cs" is "good" or "bad".

comment How to find the process(es) which are hogging the machine
+1 But I'm more looking for a tool which does this analysis for me and prints the process along with some info what's wrong. I don't want to gather that from the "raw" figures. Anything?

I look for something that I run and which says "Process X is hogging the machine".

comment How to find the process(es) which are hogging the machine
This is just an example. Please take it with a grain of salt. Imagine a noob is sitting in front of the computer who knows nothing. How can he find out most easily what is going on (i.e. without spending half an hour googling what the output of top means)

Why? The question is still relevant.

As I said: Configure the code cleanup. Just remove "Format Source Code" from the options.

comment Extracting all the still images from a movie
But it's hard to keep to the time. Sometimes, I have to leaf through pages or check the backside, etc. It would be much more comfortable, if the software could simply extract the first frame of all duplicates.

comment Extracting all the still images from a movie
+1 for the general direction of the answer. What I'd like is a way to find duplicate/very similar frames and keep only those.

I've rewritten my answer to make it more obvious that one link goes to a HOWTO which might help.

comment Alternatives to Adobe's PDF Optimizer?
Since there doesn't seem to be any tools for this around, they could be used as stepping stones to build such a tool.

comment Getting “-bash: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable” in OSX
Maybe. You can run 266 processes at the same time. The desktop, all your open applications and all terminals count towards that number. Try ps -fu $LOGNAME | wc -l to see how many processes you already have.

comment Customizing menu shortcuts in Firefox
I tried it; at first glance it seems better than "menu editor" but while I could find the entry that I wanted to remove, I couldn't find the entry that I wanted to see. The list contains roughly 1000 elements and there is no search :-( So while it might work, it's too hard to use for me.

comment Customizing menu shortcuts in Firefox
Unfortunately, this doesn't allow me to edit the menu; I can only delete it completely. Not really useful since I'd like to keep the option.

comment Move open Excel document to separate window
Can't help you but I've seen both in Excel: Everything in one window (MDI like) and each sheet one window. Did you check the prefs? Maybe it's an option?

Hm. That shouldn't stop him from filing an enhancement request?

comment Clipboard stopped working
This pushes the last app out of the clipboard. May cause a memory leak but as OP noticed, it give you the control back.
