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!

comment How to open Google Chrome with extensions disabled / turned off?
Despite what the linked blog says, Incognito Mode is not a replacement for Firefox's Safe Mode.

comment Search for non-characters (character replacement indicators)
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.

How would you then drag a tab to the bookmarks?

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.

comment Txt file contains bin characters which doesn't render properly in vim
Actually, ASCII text would be all code points ≤ U+007F.

Thank you, Sopalajode. In what situation have you needed to use sudo ls in Cygwin?

comment Paranoid Parent: “WiFi safe for baby?”
The woman hod been to my house many times before, our children would often play. Unless she would have gone into my work room and noticed that the router had been changed there was no way outside to know. No wifi devices, no router packaging lying around (I keep the box and in fact still have it), and she had been there many times before.

comment Paranoid Parent: “WiFi safe for baby?”
@ValarDohaeris: My hypothesis is that nobody could detect wifi. In the test, the woman could detect it. Therefore, my hypothesis was false. That said, I've raised two daughters in that very house with that very wifi, so I personally do not perceive any danger.

No tablets in the house. The only reason that I installed wifi was because I had to replace my router anyway. It wasn't until my wife got a Galaxy S3 in October 2012 that the wifi was ever actually used!

comment Paranoid Parent: “WiFi safe for baby?”
@ValarDohaeris: Thank you for the reference. I don't see how this applies here. In a double-blind real-life incident (Neither the woman who felt the wifi nor myself intended for this to be an experiment, and nothing was mentioned to her) a human detected that a wifi network was active in the area. I also would love for it to be not true, but here we have experimental evidence.
