comment Clear 301-redirect cache in Firefox
Nice! Unlike my solution, this works even if your only visit to the site is a redirect to an error page, because those don't appear in the history and you have nothing to click "Forget about this site" on.

comment My PC is not a phone - how do I remove the swipey pre-log in screen from Gnome 3?
Terrible discoverability, acceptable usability. A good example of the difference between the two!

comment Set display scaling when using Remote Desktop from Surface Pro
DPI sync is nice and all, but all that was really necessary was to allow zooming in: a client-side feature that would have worked with ALL servers. Better make it a bit ugly than completely useless with Server 2008 R2...

comment Remote Desktop Zooming
Perfect! Just to clarify, this does not require any configuration at all; what happens is that RDPMan is not high-DPI compatible and so Windows simply bitmap-scales the whole lot. Which is all I needed to begin with.

comment Remote Desktop Zooming
I want to see the person who coded the maximum RDP window size limit for the smart-sizing feature. It's just a window with an image stretched to fill! Just leave the max size limits out of it and it would have done exactly what we wanted!

comment Set DPI of individual applications in Windows
It's amazing that they still haven't figured out that this is the one thing that would make high DPI displays entirely tolerable WAY before all the developers fix all their apps.

An article about exactly what goes wrong: Excel 2010 conditional formatting nightmare. They sure made it a lot worse while trying to make it a bit better...

comment Greasy water in laptop's DIMM slot
Maybe a small amount of isopropyl alcohol mixed with lots of distilled water? (disclaimer: never tried this on a real laptop, but I did bathe a motherboard in distilled water at one point and it worked for years afterwards).

And don't drop any screws on it while it's running!

And how exactly is a router supposed to know which process originates the traffic?

comment How can I limit bandwidth of other programs?
@GSerg dropping packets is just about the only way to "transparently narrow the bandwidth". (not that this helps fix any issues you're having on XP, of course...)

comment How can I configure the Windows 7 firewall to prompt me on outbound traffic?
Upon installation, you have to sit through a few dozen "allow this program?" prompts before you can access any settings.

revised What's the reason behind “Stereo Mix” becoming a missing option?
Added Audacity as top option since it's open-source and widely known. Hope it's ok. I'm not affiliated; I just couldn't believe I spent hours searching for software to do this when I had one that works already installed!
