comment Doesn't metadata occupy any size?
It's important to note that the allocation tables for NTFS and FAT are preallocated. It differs from format to format, but several sectors are usually occupied with empty preallocated blocks that are to be used for storing metadata in order to reduce fragmentation.

comment Font folder in Windows Vista/7
I hope you realize that this question is over three years old now. If you must know, on my Windows 7 machine, I was able to go to: Control Panel > Fonts > Font Settings and there was a checkbox labeled "Allow fonts to be installed using a shortcut (advanced)." However, this isn't really pertinent to the question at hand.

comment How do I make a machine “blank screen” for a period of time (as a penalty) if certain noise levels are reached?
A simple "energy" detector for a series of samples is to just add the value of all the peaks together. You wouldn't have to even average it if you didn't want to. A peak is just any point where sample[n]>sample[n-1]&&sample[n]>sample[n+1] I've used this as a rudimentary mechanism for measuring the energy of a song and it works quite well. Just search for a magic number at which you're happy with the volume level.

comment Font folder in Windows Vista/7
Alright thank you. No, I have an application which depends on fonts, and few free fonts have Unicode glyphs, so I want to use the wide array provided by Microsoft, but I can't redistribute Windows fonts. So, I decided to peek in to the fonts folder and use a font there, defaulting to a free font if it's not there. Thanks, and I'll accept when it lets me =p

comment I have a binary or hex file cached in firefox. How can I make it a working file?
Ok, yes. If the sender compressed it then it will be compressed. I'm going to see if 7Zip will open zLib'd stuff...

Yes, and actually I just realized that it shouldn't be necessary to remove the newlines.
