comment Make Firefox go to URL based on current URL
Thank you, it works perfectly! To make it respond to key, no keymapper extension is required, the built-in bookmark keymapper does the job. In the bookmark manager, simply assign a keyword (Schlüsselwort) to the bookmark (I chose yx), so typing yx in the address bar (replacing the current URL) will take you to the translation of the current URL.

comment Setting default keyboard layout in Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012
@OndrejTucny You are 100% right and the guy who removed the tag is 100% wrong. "We generally don't like tags that …" - wtf? StackOverflow and SuperUser really aren't on the same level. While the former is a great site, SU abounds with patronizing, arrogant admins à la Wikipedia who make high-handed edits to posts, delete comments, and even entire questions should the discussion in the comments threaten to expose the ignorance that underpins their purported superuser/superadmin status. Well, the name of the site is »superuser«, nomen est omen.

comment Is Catalyst Control Center necessary?
I'd like to add that settings can be tweaked using regedit. For example, here's how you can fix an overscan/underscan issue. It is unfortunate that CCC is a 150 MB piece of bloatware and AMD doesn't provide a reasonably sized settings editor on Windows, like aticonfig for Linux, leaving you with regedit as a last resort.

comment Change Overscan/Underscan settings without Catalyst Control Center
Just installed the new driver on Win 8.1, this time without the 150 MB Control Center bloatware. So I ran into this underscan issue. Adding the DWORD as you described did fix the issue. Thank you for the pointer! Note that I rebooted to see the effect; the driver doesn't monitor the registry to auto-update its settings.

comment Gigabit - Throughput bound more by CPU/RAM, or Disk IO?
So what does "generally" really mean? I don't have an Intel Atom, but I do have an AMD E350 (similar to Atom, stronger graphics, dual core 1,6 GHz), and it doesn't seem to be able to saturate Gbit Ethernet despite a fast platter disk being installed, only doing 40 MB/s instead of 100 MB/s. - Okay, I just read that the E350 is underpowered in this regard. A dual-core Celeron 2,4 GHz would saturate the line just fine. - So I bought a CPU that is indeed an exception to the general rule, and that's what led me here in the first place.

comment How to disable so-called »accelerators« in IE 11
@terdon - Oh, come on … First, IE has improved a lot recently. Second, I don't want to install additional contiuous-update-ware on every machine when I already have IE. As I guess you know, IE cannot be uninstalled, it's part of the OS. - And to whom it may concern: Stop deleting and changing what I write here.

comment How to tell if windows 7 installer boot in EFI or BIOS?
Thanks. \Windows\Panther, didn't know such a beast was hiding inside my computer. As an alternative to using Notepad, one could use trusty old FINDSTR from the command prompt: findstr Callback_BootEnvironmentDetect \Windows\Panther\setupact.log
