So instead some mean-spirited person comes along and closes the question. What a dick.

comment Diagram drawing application
@Synetech Ohh, i thought you just wanted something that had the capabilities to draw like what you found in the Android SDK - and Visio just wasn't cutting it.

comment How to block a program from using IPv4?
@Ramhound None; as far as i know Windows only has the one. And i can't do it at the firewall level, because i only want to block one application.

comment How can I make localhost resolve to 127.0.0.1 instead of ::1?
This is similar to the bug in Visual Studio's built-in Cassini web-server: it refuses to listen on ::1. As a result: it is, by default, unusable. Hopefully MySql is capable of binding to IPv6.

comment Dual monitors on Windows - How do I set a different DPI or text size on each monitor?
@ChrisSmith Problem with using DWM to scale window contents is that text becomes fuzzy and hard to read. And i hate the fuzzies.

comment How to add Color Scheme to Windows Vista/7/Server 2008/Server 2008 R2?
You can use color schemes to modify UI sizes. You just have to customize the active scheme; you cannot save schemes.

comment Is there a fix to display 0 when arithmetic underflow occurs on the Windows 7 calculator?
i still get -8.1648465955514287168521180122928e-39 (calculator version 6.1.7600.16385). You can paste 4 @ - 2 = into Calculator to easily repeat the test.

comment How can I disable the Windows 8 charms bar?
@Gnoupi Those programs rely on undocumented internal details. That makes them fragile; prone to breaking or causing other problems. That makes them unsupported.

comment How can I disable the Windows 8 charms bar?
i guess, @Gnoupi, that the answer could be: enter into an agreement with Microsoft where, for an undisclosed amount of money, they will sell you source code, from which you are allowed to create a private build of Windows 8 that only you are allowed to run. Then modify the source code to remove *charms." Except the implicit assumption in the question in the question was: how to disable charms in Windows using supported settings, or through a 3rd party tool. Like it or not, there is no way to do that. Like it or not that is the answer.

comment Are there external enclosures allowing external drives to be connected to internal motherboard?
i see there is a SATA technology, call Port Multiplying, allowing multiple drives to be connected to a single SATA port. The total bandwidth is limited to that of the single SATA cable. The protocol also only allows one drive to be addressed at a time, that request must be issued and completed before the host can address another drive. This eliminates the value of NCQ (native command queuing)

i see it really is a smaller $300 case, with SATA-eSATA adapters.

comment Are there external enclosures allowing external drives to be connected to internal motherboard?
But is there a mechanism in these external boxes then to connect four SATA cables to them? Rather than just one?

comment Are there external enclosures allowing external drives to be connected to internal motherboard?
The problem is that i only have 1 eSATA port, but 4 SATA drives.
