comment Firefox 43 puts black spots on display
It could also be a bug in Firefox; there have been plenty of bugs on the Firefox side with similar symptoms ever since hardware acceleration has made its appearance a long time ago.

comment Getting curl to output HTTP status code?
I believe this downloads the entire file even though it all goes to /dev/null, so not ideal for checking the status code for huge files. httping -c 1 -s -G -m issues a GET and doesn't download the whole file, although I realise this question is specifically about curl.

comment How do I give myself admin rights to a sql server instance, having forgotten the sa password?
For some reason this didn't work for me: step 9 was unable to connect. But note that at step 6 you can instead run SSMS locally and create the login that way. That worked for me.

comment Custom resolution in VirtualBox Windows 8 with Guest Additions
Sure, the auto resize feature works... unless you want to use a size larger than host monitor (+enable scaling mode), or you want a very specific resolution. The use cases are limited, e.g. high DPI testing on a low DPI machine, but it's certainly something that a quality virtualization package should support.

comment How to forbid keyboard shortcut stealing by websites in Firefox
This code works! Keep in mind that it filters not only Ctrl+Key, but also Ctrl+Alt+Key, Ctrl+Shift+Key and Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Key, because it only checks for the state of the Ctrl modifier.

comment Turning DisplayPort monitor off disables monitor completely
If you're switching ports, switch to DVI; it might not do 4K 60fps but at least it can do 2.5K 60fps, and requires no modifications to cables.
