comment Using find -mmin to find files with modification time in the future
This just saved me trouble on a new machine where I had done something ten hours in the future by accident (timezone offset applied to an already-offset hardware clock) and after fixing the clock a configure script complained about things being in the future (by an hour and a half or so still): find . -newermt '1 hour' | xargs touch -d '-9 hours' and I can continue. :-)

comment Is it possible to run vim on a remote server via ssh but show UI on MacVim on my laptop?
I certainly got the impression that you knew these things; I just find for myself that I'd far rather spend a couple of minutes setting up Mercurial, which is really very easy, than doing without my Vim configuration. :-)

You don't need to install these tools. You can just build them yourself very easily. If you don't have SSH access, then option 3 is not valid anyway. (And option 2 is often not going to be valid either. Providers of SFTP are more likely to have SSH access open, SFTP being based upon that.)

You're almost certain to be able, very easily, to get Mercurial or Git going. Git will require standard build tools; Mercurial (my personal preference, I don't like Git though I work with it sometimes) will benefit from these but is content with just Python, which all servers will have.

3. Absence of these? That's why you keep them in a VCS repository. There's no need to be without them.

comment Why don't websites immediately display their text these days?
@user613326: well, with Firefox Portable the cache size is typically 0MB. Can't remember whether Chrome Portable has that or not.

In this particular case, PortableApps.com is using the "Ubuntu" font. John tried OpenSans first, but we switched to Ubuntu fairly quickly. I was the main proponent of switching... one way in which you can remove the problem is by having the font family installed yourself. If you install it from font.ubuntu.com it will work immediately.

Who are you considering to be the network administrator? The ISP?

comment How can I get rid of OpenDNS?
welcome.opendns.com says "oops!", but it is there (both tests, the phishing site and the domain misspelling, worked as OpenDNS makes them work). Sounds like its a queer mixture of the DNS values that it's been given and the ones specified by me. Very strange indeed.

I have already tried setting it on individual machines. No change.

Please, don't confuse WinRT (Windows Runtime) with Windows RT (the OS)

Careful... WinRT is completely different to Windows RT.
