comment Install emacs without sudo?
I have less than 1ms of latency to some of the servers, and very good latency to the others. We use a nearby data centre. Latency is not an issue for any other editor and I want to use it as my $EDITOR for things like typing in commit messages for version control. I'm never doing serious programming on a remote server, I use my local workstation which already has emacs installed.

comment Install emacs without sudo?
@JourneymanGeek yes, gcc appears to be available to my user on at least some of the servers. I've never tested it. I'm a bit nervous about running make install incase it does something the sysadmin would get pissed off about... I work with production servers every day, and I'm not the one who has to wake up at 2am if something goes wrong.

comment Changing MTU on Windows 8
If your Xbox is showing an MTU error, then you will need to change the MTU on the Xbox. I don't know if that's possible. The last time I had a non-PC device fail with an MTU error, it was impossible to fix. Perhaps you will need to use ethernet.

comment Disable taskbar hotkey?
@nixda I setup a key binding for windows + shift + t within the program and when pressing it, the taskbar activates and the key press event never reaches the intended target (apparently the task bar key works with & without the shift key). I use multiple computers (the others are macs) and need to use the same key everywhere, since I have muscle memory for it.

@nixda I want to use that key combination inside a program that allows you to customize it's key bindings.

comment How to run a program as root without “sudo”?
@dmckee a lot of mac users run server software on their workstation and it's often setup to require root for things that really shouldn't need it... but reconfiguring a LAMP stack to run without root is a pain in the ass. On the other hand, restarting apache 20 times a day and typing sudo each time is also a pain in the ass. This is a simple solution.

I'm pretty sure anything using transparent compression is a file you don't want to restore anyway.
