comment How can I block a specific host
What linux distro/version are you using? You probably want iptables entries, but that is difficult to say without knowing specifics on your host.

comment Using SQLite3 with Cygwin
I was able to get it working by downloading the native build version through cygwin (your second option). I didn't even think about that option, heh. Thanks for the great explanation of why it doesn't work. I did try the first also, and it kind of worked (like you mentioned). There seemed to be a "buffer" delay where it would dump info in screens after you passed some threshold of characters. Thanks again.

comment Using SQLite3 with Cygwin
I type "sqlite3" at the cygwin bash command prompt and the program just hangs. I have to use CTRL + C to exit and return back to the command prompt. When it starts "running" nothing happens.

comment Windows recursive touch command
The "accepted" answer in that link is about using .NET programming libraries to accomplish that for one file. The others were about adding a context menu to update single files. I was looking for a built in command to do it to N files recursively. The answer below worked for doing it for all files. It's not a built-in, but it works. Thanks.
