comment Connect 2 computers to internet (1 ip) via switch
@Jet In that case look up Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) in Windows. As long as one of your computers has a gigabit NIC, you won't need a crossover ethernet cable.

comment Connect 2 computers to internet (1 ip) via switch
@Jet You shouldn't have to do anything if the router has DHCP enabled. If you have messed around with the settings, the easiest thing to do is delete the network connection and start again. Don't think about IP addresses as the default configuration usually gets everything working automatically.

comment Lag on all videos *except* YouTube
Are you sure you aren't using HTML5 video on YouTube instead of Flash? That would explain why it doesn't lag like everything else.

comment Recursively Rename File Extensions Across Multiple Drives
Why do you want to change the file extension of different image types to .jpeg? Why do you even want to change .jpg files to .jpeg? .jpeg is an erroneous extension that shouldn't even exist.

comment Creating multiple screens in a for loop to run parellel programs and sending commands to each
The syntax for tmux is much simpler and it's the same for the config file and command line, which is just one of the reasons it's much better than screen.

You don't like ClearType and you don't like Chrome. I like them both and wished Chrome had ClearType.

comment Can I use Hyper-V on Windows XP?
No, the version of Hyper-V on 2008 and 2008 R2 were just earlier versions, but not architecturally different to the current version. XP Mode runs on Windows Virtual PC and not Hyper-V, which is very different. Virtual PC runs within the host OS and not under it.
