comment How to tell how many CPUs (cores) you have on Windows 7
Excellent answer, short and sweet. Open a command prompt, copy-and-paste it in, done.

comment How to delete origin/master in Git
You're not the only one I've seen with the notion that "force" is a terrible or messy thing to do. We're always told not to force things. Forcing a door knob might break it. Forcing a screw might strip the head. But forcing Git isn't going to do any damage, as long as you're aware of what commits it'll replace. You won't mess up Git or break it or leave it unable to function. Having to put -f is just a way of saying, "I realize that when doing this, I could lose work, but I know what I'm doing, so go ahead and do it anyway."

comment Can I disable the cache in Chrome for specific hosts?
Alas, in the current version of Chrome, the option now reads "Disable cache (while DevTools is open)". Not so useful anymore.

comment Does a computer use more electricity when charging USB devices?
-1 for not reading the question carefully. The question didn't ask whether USB ports provide magical free power. The question asked whether they always use power, or only when they're charging something.

comment How can I make a new mail alert in Outlook display an option to Move instead of Flag or Delete?
In the end, it turned out that an even better solution was to just disable all e-mail notifications. Less disruption while I work!

"Hey look, a stolen password. Eh, I'll sit on it a couple of months before I use it. No rush."
