comment Chromecast UK will not connect with Windows 7 laptop
@MikeNaylor I cannot really turn off the Firewall in this laptop, since it's also my work laptop and I don't have admin access to turn the firewall off. I tried changing the network type to "work", and still no luck connecting. I also tried setting my Chromecast in a different wireless network to the one at home, and I was successful with my phone, but unsuccessful with my laptop.

@MikeNaylor any ideas where to switch things off with regards to firewall settings? Also, how to switch to 'work' network?

It seems changing to Channel 11 was necessary, but what really made the trick was to use my Android phone to set it up first time around. Now the problem is that my Windows 7 laptop will not connect to it.

I tried disabling wireless security, which is the only item in the list I can modify even with the "Advanced Settings" for the BTHub3: no difference, still unable to connect the Chromecast.

I can't believe nobody has found a solution for this. Someone else in the UK must have the same problem...

@allquixotic the device that I plug the Chromecast to is a "dumb" monitor. I then try to set up the Chromecast via the wireless at home, which is a BT HomeHub 3 router.

It seems like there are programs that only work when executed from the directory where the .exe file lies.

comment cygwin AtlGr+pipe key not working as a pipe but as a split vertical bar
I downloaded AutoHotKey but I am not sure how to remap the key. It seems like it's all about key combos for different purposes, but couldn't find the remapping section in the tutorial. Any ideas?

And is there an easy way to change that behaviour in the keyboard map? My brain seems to be wired to go straight to AltGr+backtick

comment linux: is tree -i -f -L $depth supposed to be faster than find -maxdepth $depth?
I would expect the writing of the fullpath is not an issue, because the tree options I am using to the same.
