@nhinkle It's not "hardware shopping recommendations". What's the problem?

comment Tool to put text on desktop wallpaper
The thing that bugs me about BgInfo is that the fonts aren't rendered with antialiasing/cleartype and I can see a lot of pixels on curved letters.

comment Why/how is svchost.exe using 6.5GB of memory?
I had that hotfix installed and it fixed it for a number of months but recently (I suspect after a windows update) it has started happening again. Reapplying the hotfix doesn't seem to have any effect. Anyone else in a similar situation? Any solution?

comment Windows 7 - Preview other file types as text in Preview Pane
The benefit of this method is that if you change the viewer for the underlying type all types that are perceived as it will change too.

comment Keyboard shortcut to hide/show Explorer navigation
Nice! Using Send ^e{tab}{enter}ln (CTRL+E, TAB ENTER instead of ALT+D TAB TAB ENTER) is slightly faster I've also bound it to ALT+N so I can use it with ALT+P !n:: for toggling the preview pane without removing my finger from ALT.

comment man pages for git Bash on windows 7
You can install man with MinGW-get install msys-man. Man is also available as a windows binary: sourceforge.net/projects/ezwinports/files (found via the FAQ: mingw.org/wiki/FAQ#toc10). That page also has groff. Either would probably run faster than those scripts.

It looks like it might be in wpdshext.dll: nirsoft.net/dll_information/windows8/wpdshext_dll.html

comment How to change photo import settings in Windows 8
I assume this is the tool for importing from devices that Al Bundy's answer refers to. Is there a similar command for the Open as Portable Device dialog? How did you work out how to do this?

comment Convert a Gmail account from POP to IMAP and keep folder structure?
Ah, I misunderstood you then. I thought you were proposing a solution that would allow deduplication as a one off event (so label or no label on old gmail would be the same at that point), not an ongoing process.

comment Convert a Gmail account from POP to IMAP and keep folder structure?
If I understand how that addon works correctly I don't think it will help. If messages aren't in the same folder (which they won't be as pop emails are sorted into folders and gmail emails aren't) then it won't find a duplicate.

comment Convert a Gmail account from POP to IMAP and keep folder structure?
You're correct, I do want to apply my current folder names as labels. The emails have been manually sorted, so filters aren't an option. I don't see how applying a label to All Mail will help, the emails I upload via IMAP folders (i.e. label) will have labels, whilst the old emails won't, so I can already tell them apart.

comment Convert a Gmail account from POP to IMAP and keep folder structure?
I hadn't considered deleting everything from gmail before uploading, I guess that would work but I'm not convinced I have everything in gmail downloaded so it would be nice if there was a way to verify that first.

Ah, found them: maildev.com/buy/#itab1-tmplic That's more reasonable.

And I would have to pay $45 for a licence as the free trial is limited to the extraction of 20 messages per folder. For a one time operation I think that's too high a price.

If you also use Firefox a lot you could make the keyword '*' so that you can use the same keystrokes in both Firefox and Chrome.

comment How to make Outlook 2010 minimize when I try to close it?
@TomWijsman, If I install the 32bit Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable package I don't get that error but it just returns to the dialog without adding it. I'm running 64bit.

comment Can dd-wrt or tomato keep track of GB usage per billing period per device?
I don't have a machine that's on all the time, or with any regularity. I will be buying a new router once I have the answer to this question, have decided what firmware I'm going to run and what hardware requirements there will be. So a USB solution might be possible if that's better than storing on the router.

I want to split the bill by how much each person has used, not set quota for usage.
