I am a software programmer using C#, C+, and (less often) PHP. I frequently work with SQL, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and XML.

I own a business for technical consulting, programming, general IT work, and designing custom electronics (usually for costumes and theater/movie prop use).

I enjoy computers, music composition, photography, writing, sci-fi/fantasy, birding, and occasional cooking. (Many of which are topics of SE sites!)

A note on capitalization, spelling, and grammar: I care about the quality and readability of the questions and answers on StackExchange sites. I frequently edit for these reasons. I understand that not everyone knows English as their first language. If I leave a comment for you asking you to observe some language-usage convention, it's meant as a helpful hint, not as an attack.

comment How can I delete a folder with “illegal” characters?
@Louis That's correct. fseventsd was a file on the root directory rather than a folder containing an illegally named subfolder. It was empty except for the subfolder. I would have expected the subfolder to become a file, but that's not what it did.

comment How can I delete a folder with “illegal” characters?
I've no problem reformatting the flash drive to clear the unwanted folders, but if it were full (64GB) it would take a while to move the files back and forth. Another OS would likely work great, but I'm mostly interested if there's a way with Powershell or some Windows tool.

comment Network connection troubleshooting, unreliable ping
I edited the question shortly after posting - the connection to the router is all hard-wired. I am suspicious the router was the problem, after a reboot the packet loss was dramatically less (though still not lower than 1 or 2 percent.)

@techie007 Yes, the packet loss is the same for all sites. Some don't respond to ping, but of those that do, the percentage loss is similar.

comment How to turn off Excel “Header Row” without losing data in it?
I had a similar problem, but the Update 2 was the solution: merely unchecking the Header Row option in the Design tab. +1 for that. Microsoft gets a -1 for the ribbon.
