comment Why use a PCI System Timer?
Thank you! Is this documented anywhere, either in official Asterisk communications or elsewhere? How does a kernel change mitigate the lack of a dedicated hardware component?

@grawity: Discovering that ssh -v did not give any information was key to finding the problem, see my comment to Cameron's answer below. Thank you!

comment Have cron parse SSH config file for server addresses and options
Thanks. Actually the real scripts don't have the extension, but I like to normalize my SO posts to be more readable. My PS1 is a mess, too!

comment Have cron parse SSH config file for server addresses and options
The issue was that the script called another script which did not use the full path. What an easy thing to overlook!

comment What program do you use for spaced-repetition/flash card learning?
I am a heavy Anki and Ankidroid user, and I very highly recommend them. The Anki dev has an iPhone version too, but it is different from Ankidroid and I have not tested it yet (no iPhone).

comment How to change string literals in Emacs (from a VIM user)
Thank you, this post sums up quite a few things that I needed. I just need to find ciw (Change the entire word) and ci" (Change everything in quotes) for Emacs and I should be pretty much on my way.

comment Firefox Australis Theme: Place address bar at bottom
I have now installed the extension and it is terrific, it includes all kinds of missing options such as button size, location, tab style, etc. This extension brings us back to the time before Firefox 3.6 when the browser really was ours to customize! Thank you to lanoxx for askng the question and getting me interested!

Thank you! I thought that <96> is decimal, I did not realize that it is hexadecimal, and therefore above \x7F (127). Thank you!

comment Firefox - A vertical tab addon that works with All in One Sidebar
AISO does not display two sidebars at the same time. I simply use F4 to expand / collapse AIOS when I need it, and I always leave Tree Style Tabs open adjacent to AIOS.

comment Why is Vim adding a newline? Is this a convention?
@KyleStrand: I believe hd is High Definition as the output 74 uses twice as many pixels to display than does t.
