comment Does a CPU heatsink need to cover the entire CPU package? (Xeon E5-1650, Arctic Freezer i11)
I booted an AMD Duron machine in ~2007 without connecting the fan by mistake. I always boot into the BIOS and check the temp, and this time it saved me. I saw 104 on the screen and yanked the plug. No damage, I was still using that machine when I moved house in 2010. Arctic silver paste, stock heatsink, typical consumer motherboard. I remember it well because only about a month prior I had an Intel (Core Duo I think) fry at 72 degrees while doing some heavy processing for a few hours.

comment Shortcut for expanding a collapsed tree in Tree-style-tab addon
This extension is not compatible with the Tree Style Tabs extension. When "hiding" the tab bar with this extension, the Tree Style Tabs sidebar goes blank (i.e. no tabs are shown) but it continues to occupy space on the screen.

Hi Jason. You might want to review the accepted answer, there is a new answer that does actually provide sudo in Cygwin!
