comment How can I get the “dir” and “copy” commands to operate on “*.xyz” but not “*.xyz~”?
+1. D'oh! Doing things in the right order trumps knowing all the cool commands others offered.

comment Firefox Ubiquity - remove old verbs
Ok. I was able to remove the "builtin commands" from my "chrome://ubiquity/content/cmdlist.xhtml" list by removing the "builtincmds.js" file from <path to user apps data>/Firefox/Profiles/<random id>.default/extensions/ubiquity@labs.mozilla.com/builtin-feeds/ The header still shows up in the list, but no commands. If you can find the file containing the file you should be able to remove it this way. Good luck.

comment 'Un-select' a radiobutton?
@Al Everett; +1 but I remember the 'press-to-at-a-time' trick which released all the buttons... at least on my old radios.

comment What exactly does the little green “+” button do in Mac OS X?
Stick with it... the learning curve is worth the pain once you get used to all the OS X not-windows-ness you won't want to go back...

comment Considerations for keyboard with integrated mouse for HTPC dedicated to the TV?
It's a full keyboard (with a trackball -- the superior pointing device for SuperUsers!) contorted into an over-sized game controller for masochistic users. Some how they failed to build in a bluetooth radio so you have to use a 15 foot USB cord... :-(
