comment Is there a convenient way to edit PATH in Windows 7?
Windows 8 now too of course. Fingers crossed for Windows 10.

comment Are there rules to Windows 7 Environment variable names?
Ok, getting it now. My system environment variables are in alphabetical order because I clicked "Ok" in the control panel. I added a new REG_EXPAND_SZ value called "AAPATH" and true enough, cmd.exe and a reg query shows it at the end of the list. Clicking "Ok" on the control panel fixes it into first position.

If I use reg query "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment" /v *, the values are in alphabetical order. I added a new entry and ran it again to confirm. Do you think some keys behave differently than others?

comment Using VMware/Virtual box to simulate a cluster of nodes, but actually using a single machine
The answer tells you that what you had planned to do will indeed work. What might be more useful is information regarding the availability of a virtual cluster, preconfigured and preloaded with software such as MPI or GASNet, say.

By the way, 3 files would look like this: vim +123 file1 +"tabnew +456 file2" +"tabnew +789 file3"

Thanks. A bit verbose; and it opens on the rightmost file rather than the leftmost with -p; but I suppose it gets the job done!

comment Mini PCI-e to USB adapter for Netbook SSD access
Apparently, Phison ASUS SSDs only have a FLASH_CON PATA interface. I don't know what that means though. Still looking for a solution...

This is great: I didn't know about yank and kill.

Do you know, is there anything that can read these SSDs? (Apart from another Eee PC.)
