comment How can I rename a network in Windows 8?
Upvote for sweet solution. I guess Microsoft tries to simplify things, but ends up bugging people like me. (can't stand that 2 at the end).

comment Why do we need hard and soft limit in open file count?
Well, to say that hard limit is to protect users against each other is a little questionable, because you can set different hard limit count per terminal session, even under the same user account. If the purpose is to protect users from each other, I would imagine that hard limit is a number that applies to all sessions, but clearly, not quite the case? At least not under Mac. haven't verified with Linux yet.

comment sshfs: no such file or directory
I always wonder...why does sshfs require absolute path? With any other ssh-supported programs, like scp, rsync, ~ expansion has always been assumed. So far, I find sshfs as the only exception

comment How to get Microsoft Lili Text to Speech on English version of Windows 8?
Furthermore, even if I get the released language packs for Windows 8, that still only further makes changes to the system wide display languages (localization of your user interface), still not text-to-speech feature either :/

Note that I am aware of the language settings within Windows 8, that allows for alternative text input in foreign language, but that contains no text-to-speech feature

comment User friendly way to schedule jobs in Mac OS X
It may support the feature under ML because the event has an option for "Open File", so I presume that allows you to run custom script. But I can't, because I set up my iCal to sync with Google Calendar, and Google simply revert the notification back to default.

How can simplicity go against Homebrew for expert user? I never used Fink, but Macports is no brainer, even for newbies

comment What is the difference between i686 and x86_64?
This answer is most useful to me, especially when I am already aware the 32bit vs 64bit. The part that threw me off was "i686". Typically, I would expect just simply x86

comment How to sync bookmarks across Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox bookmarks?
As a common sense, make sure to turn off bookmarks sync in both Chrome & Firefox on all machines prior to using Xmarks. It is truly a nightmare when all three bookmarks sync service are fighting, duplicating exponentially bookmarks across 14+ browsers among 6 or 7 boxes.
