This would be a great answer if you provided a powershell snippet to demonstrate.

comment Get current folder name by a DOS command?
No, for the reason that 'for /?' was the obvious first place I looked and so this answer is no better than what is expected by anyone.

comment Adding a new language to Notepad++
One tip I have: always refer to using Notepad++ "Plugin Manager" first before assuming there is any functionality not already there.

comment What is the safest way to set up SQL Server for remote access?
Yeah, Hamachi is to VPN's like join.me is for remote desktop. The easiest possible way to do it.

comment Does a virtual desktop app for Windows exist that is RDP/VNC compatible?
I've seen software like this before and couldn't use those either. The reason is that I would bet mRemoteNG would fail on logins to Windows Servers (2003 and 2008) due to their more restrictive RDP authentication scheme. That makes this software much less useful. People who need this kind of thing are certainly using servers.

comment How do I enable multi-threaded LZMA2 using 7-zip 9.20 on the command line?
I already thought of that. I opened 7-zip (version 9.20) and I looked at what it "detected" as the number of cores. That is the number I used.
