comment How can I partition out damaged sectors on a HDD?
I know, I'm aware. It's just for experimenting purposes. I've never done it, and now that I have a damaged HDD I'd like to test it out. That HDD would be "stress-tested" until it goes completely kaput. I'm just curious, is all.

comment LibreOffice calc countifs with date
The proper syntax for Excel is completely irrelevant here. I just put it there for the "<=12/31/2010", something like that I'm missing in LibreOffice. @G-Man, nope, does't work. :(

comment Excel 2013: Drop down list with date range?
That's exactly what I'm trying to avoid. Using references to cells with date. I'm trying to build just a drop-down menu without any extra cells and just the desired dates in it.

Nah, VBScript is fine too. I would just need to read up how to run it. Should be easy doable.

comment How can I generate a large amount of standarized strings in a .txt file?
Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and pretty much any open-source text-editors that come to mind, like Notepad++ or stuff like that.

I don't really want to script anything it's just the one-time deal I have to do. I don't foresee in the future to be in need of any more scripts like that. That said, a bit of scripting know-how is never bad. Thanks for the script. I'm most of the time on Win7 and Win8(.1) if that matters.

This is by far the best alternative I've found. I can suggest it to everybody. Otherwise there's Dxtory.

comment Batch-Script for copying and overwritting existing files
Awesome! That did it. Now if I may bother you a bit further. Assuming "d:\txt" is where all the files are I want to overwrite. I edit all the files in d:\new and then drop each file to the run.bat . The file might be named "testcase.txt" or "whatareyoudoing.txt" etc, but they are all also present in d:\txt and its subfolders. So, how do I go about that without constantly editing the run.bat file?

Exactly the opposite of what I want. Copying for each file is what I want to do with the batch script. I'm not going to manually copy over bazillion files.

comment How do I go about batch-optimizing image files with a script?
I tried, it doesn't work. PNGCrush has different commands that I apparently am too dumb to incorporate. I can read the "usage" section when executing pngcrush.exe but that's...really...descriptive...

If I could bother you again, Karan. Could you do another batch file, but this time with Pngcrush as application? Don't worry much about the -xyz commands, these I'll look up myself in Pngcrus and add accordingly to the batch file! Thanks!

comment “Replace all” using Regular Expressions in Notepad++
Yay! Thank you! Sorry to bug you again. Any way to automatically run the script each time I paste something there?
