comment Password manager for multiple computers?
How do you remember what the exact site name is? For example, facebook.com now directs to the secure login page (facebook.com - not formatting right but that's https instead of http as the protocol). Will you remember that when you created the password, you used the old nonsecure page? Or what about when www.foo.com starts directing you (a year later) to www.foo.com/login or something like that?

comment How can I stop Outlook from expanding subfolders when they receive mail?
Ok, I figured out one problem - many of my rules had "stop processing more rules" which I guess makes it a client-side rule. I removed that so they're all server-side now. But they are still making the folders expand - are you sure about your answer?

comment How can I stop Outlook from expanding subfolders when they receive mail?
I'm a little confused. I'm not certain that my rules are server or client side, but: A) I can create a rule (such as "permanently delete mail from a certain person") and when I save it, I get a popup that says it's client-side rule and and will only run with Outlook is open, B) I have other rules that don't give me that popup (so I assume they are server-side), but C) those rules (in B) still cause the folder auto-expansion to happen. Does that make sense? How can I specify a rule to be server-side vs. client-side?

comment Add an exception to a Thunderbird filter?
1. Did you think I didn't google it first? 2. The results from google don't answer my question. 3. Your answer doesn't answer my question. Sorry :(

comment In Windows 7, why won't my display stay off despite the power settings saying it should?
Another test - I changed the nircmd command to turn the screensaver on, and set up a "blank screen" screensaver. This works as expected - I click the shortcut, and the screen goes blank and stays that way until I move the mouse. This is ok, I guess, but not ideal because there's still a bit of a glow coming from the monitor (a blank screensaver is still brighter than the monitor being off). So I can pretty safely say it's not the mouse that's moving, unless there are different "thresholds" for being "awake" for the monitor being off vs. in screensaver mode.

And one other thing I just tried - I kept the mouse still and didn't even touch it, and then ran the nircmd command using just the keyboard from a command prompt. The mouse is not moving - it's across the room. Still, the monitor turns right back on.

comment In Windows 7, why won't my display stay off despite the power settings saying it should?
Well, this is bizarre. It's a cordless USB mouse so I tried two things. First, I clicked the shortcut for nircmd, and immediately unplugged the USB receiver. It worked! The screen stays off. However, when I switch to the "turn off asap" power profile, and then unplug the receiver, it still won't turn off. But seriously, this mouse is not moving - it is perfectly still, on my desk, and I'm going to great care to just push the button as quickly and quietly as possible...
