comment Trying to determine why Chrome (Win 7 64) with many tabs open is spinning. Is there a browser/OS/ISP test for multiple connection throughput?
Thanks, auto detect proxy was in fact off, and I have reset my dhcp server to serve up google's dns and opendns.

Another update. I suspect the find from cygwin would have worked fine. It turned out the find in my PATH was coming from the native GIT installation.

I tried that, and in fact, several minutes later it is still working (taskmgr confirms xargs is running quote a bit), and so far it has spit out $ find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 -I {} bash -c 'if [[ $(echo -n "{}" | wc -c) -gt "255" ]]; then echo "{}"; fi' bash: -c: line 0: unexpected EOF while looking for matching )' bash: -c: line 1: unexpected token ÿ' in conditional command bash: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of file

Ironically, the above resulted in Get-ChildItem : The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters. At line:1 char:1 + Get-ChildItem -r * |? {$_.GetType().Name -match "File" } |? {$_.fullname.length ... + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : ReadError: (C:\Users\jerry\...\blogs\markdown:String) [Get-ChildItem], PathTooLongException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : DirIOError,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetChildItemCommand

Interesting, thank you. I'll try this as well.

I have cygwin, so thanks. I think it might be nice to know if there is a standard windows way to do this, since apparently windows lets you make these files but doesn't let you easily discover them!
