comment How can we recover (not reset) the router password?
So, SE's idea of a fitting remuneration for benefiting >120k visitors is negative rep, shrugs...

comment How can we recover (not reset) the router password?
@jiggunjer, Yea, but the negativity has already taken hold. Those 20 upvotes wouldn't be able to offset the 50 downvotes because upon seeing a thread with negative votes, the typical user would simply downvote it without thinking further. While I can remove the question to regain (future) lost rep, we'd need to know what we are defending against. Having this "evil" question removed and less people educated will only benefit the blackhats who already know these things.

comment How to change ONLY the prompt color of the Windows command-line?
I've set %prompt% tojavascript:var str = '$_$d, $t → $p:$_'; for(x=0; x<511-str.length; ++x)document.write('='); document.write(str);. It doesn't require any 3rd party apps and solves the problem color is trying to solve.

comment How to set Clink's output color?
Btw I see that you are calling Clink as CLink. Why do you call it as CLink? Back to topic: Why is Clink able to set the prompt color for default cmd but not the output color? Is it due to a bug or is it due to an inherent Windows limitation?

comment How to set Clink's output color?
This is what I see with type myfile.txt: i.stack.imgur.com/7yC7M.png . To recap, are you saying that default cmd doesn't have color support so Clink wouldn't be able to do colors too? But why does it seem like Clink is setting text to white color, even after I've changed cmd settings for text color to black?

comment How to set Clink's output color?
Clink states that it hooks into ReadConsole() so wouldn't it be able to assign colors to the output too? Another oddity is, if it doesn't, why is the color white color instead of the color cmd uses (which is set to black using "properties >> colors" on the cmd window).

However Clink is able to set the prompt color fine: set clink.prompt_colour=12. Is there no equivalent option to set the text color?

comment Writing command output in Windows cmd to a file (with a twist)
@KevinFegan, Is there any difference between foo.exe > "c:\output.txt" 2>&1 and foo.exe > "c:\output.txt" 2>"c:\output.txt"? Are they identical?

@Radoo, This doesn't work. He already has his commands typed in the cmd.exe.

@Zeiga, @ iglvzx, I don't get it, what's the difference between doing it this way vs simply "right-click, select all, copy, paste to file"?
