comment IPCONFIG for one network adaptor only
Discovered the grep-like | findstr "<string>" for those parsing the output (in my case, looking for subnet information).

comment What disk image should I use with VirtualBox, VDI, VMDK, VHD or HDD?
+1 I'll add that VMDK seems to offer the panacea I've been searching for in terms of incremental backups: I no longer have to back up an enormous, monolithinc VDI for a single bit change in the guest.

comment How to setup firefox to display websites in their native language?
@OliverG The vast majority of sites do not use geolocation to determine the language of the visitor (because, as Tobias has pointed out, it's wildly unreliable) but instead nearly ubiquitously use the HTTP/1.1 Accept-Language header sent my the browser, which is configurable.

comment Windows 7 Professional: won't associate to the closer of two APs
The network administrator and I tried switching the AP's channels, among other things. No joy. I may just brig in a wired router tomorrow (as actually having wireless access is not at all necessary for me.) Thanks guys!

comment Windows 7 Professional: won't associate to the closer of two APs
I completely agree with your comments @cmorse. I, however, have no control over the network, which is why I was looking for another solution. Maybe I'll see if I can get the admin to move to channel 11 tomorrow… For now, I'm walking down the hall to do my svn commits :P

comment Windows 7 Professional: won't associate to the closer of two APs
It's a bit quick and dirty, but I simply started pinging a WAN-side host continually and walked from my desk to the other AP. The signal strength grew to full with no interruption in host pinging. From the behaviour of the signal strength increasing without ping interruption, I infer that I am associated to that AP (normally there would be a small hiccough in pinging while I associated to the other AP).

comment Windows 7 Professional: won't associate to the closer of two APs
thanks for your suggestion. I had a similar powerful tool with my Toshiba. However, the HP Connection Manager provides very little control over connections -- it's simply a unified power control panel like you'd find on an Android phone.

comment iTunes causes the entire system to crash when downloading some media OS X
Even that hasn't fixed the problem in subsequent releases. I had to disable podcasts, which was actually the reason I got an iPod to begin with. Stupid…

What operating system are you using, romilnagrani? When you edit your question, you should add a tag for that OS as well.

@gilsias Regarding @Felix's answer: No! /usr is not where user home folders are located in (most) Linux distros!
