comment Strange dotless decimal notation of IP address… How does it work?
@Izkata: Unlikely because that address would be in an unallocated and reserved part of IPv6 address space.

That works, thanks! Don't know how I could have overlooked that setting.

comment How to disable Chrome themes/skins and get default window decorations
Every other program in existence (with the exception of Microsoft Office) can manage to follow the default window decoration style defined in the OS without Aero being enabled. It's not hard; its what the OS does for you fully automatically unless the programmer actively goes out of his way to make his program disrespect the user's preferences.

comment tar -xvf *.tar.gz gives me a weird name on extraction
... hmm, actually with GNU tar you can use --strip-components 1 to make it ignore the first pathname element of each archived file name.

comment tar -xvf *.tar.gz gives me a weird name on extraction
tar extracts files to the directory it finds itself in, with the filenames found in the archive. If the names in the archive start with "elasticsearch-elasticsearch-servicewrapper-d47d048/", then you can't easily prevent tar from creating that directory. Except perhaps symlink it to your desired location before untarring.

That's an interesting idea.

comment equivalent to titeInhibit for Cygwin's rxvt-native?
Yes, but I'd like a solution that I won't have to repeat each time I ssh into a different server (with a shared administrative account where I'm not supposed to start customizing the profile).

comment Is there any way to make Google Chrome use current Windows theme, not its own?
It doesn't work for me, just reverts it to the default not-the-Windows-standard-settings look.

comment How to disable Chrome themes/skins and get default window decorations
No, that didn't work. I installed the "grass" theme (making the title bar display a tiled image of grass), then edited the manifest to remove "theme_frame" and reloaded. This just reverts the grass-image title bar to the ordinary Chrome-drawn dusty blue title bar with Vista-style buttons. My Windows color setting (magenta-maroon gradient title bar with Win95-style buttons) is still not being used. :-(

comment How to disable Chrome themes/skins and get default window decorations
I don't want all my windows to look like Chrome. I want Chrome to follow my color and decoration schemes, like every other program under the sun can do (with the sad exception of MS Office, which thankfully I don't have to use on a day-to-day basis).
