comment Autorun for PowerShell
I hate using doskey. I find that just putting those aliases in my script (as function)s works better.

Or use a similar route: kill the explorer.exe process and then re-run it.

comment How to delete “Program Files (x86)” folder after windows login
I have had good results with that program although I am also totally stumped by the reasoning behind deleting the program files directory.

comment Ubuntu alongside windows
If there is a problem with 12.04, I am sure Ubuntu 13.04 would probably not.

comment DropBox sync on Ubuntu Server stopped working
If you can't get it working, then I would use AeroFS instead.

comment Does ClassicShell.net truly lets one boot to the desktop on Windows 8?
I know "Soluto" will do it as well as Stardock "Start8".

comment rsync: Can it transfer files ignoring size (comparing only timestamp and name)?
With AeroFS and "BitTorrent Sync" now available, it reduces the need for rsync IMHO except in some special situations.

comment Will buying a new cheap video card let me have a third monitor painlessly?
Some of the 3rd gen Intel i7 processors support 3 monitors and so, instead of a video card, in theory you could buy a new motherboard (it would need 3 separate vid connectors on it) and new 3rd gen CPU.

comment Can i connect multiple monitor on one video card
I have 2nd Gen i7 video and I run a DVI and VGA montiors, each at 1920x1080 . I don't notice any difference at all between the two identical monitors, and so I don't think the VGA is less quality, but I supposed it is possible that I am just not noticing it.

comment IE8 will not load certain sites
Also, try the issue on a completely different computer (or more than 1) that also has IE8. That should rule out a configuration problem that only exists on a certain computer.

comment FTP, CentOS and SELinux Permissions
If you can't figure it out, you can always use the FTP subsystem built into the SSHD daemon, which I know works out-of-the-box. Just SFTP to port 22.

comment How to create a FTP Server on Ubuntu 10.04?
vsftpd is unnecessary though if you already have the SSHD daemon enabled. I wouldn't use vsftpd unless i first determine that the SSHD FTP subsystem insn't enough.

This is certainly the best option if you don't need fine grained account control. SSHD 5.x+ has the FTP subsystem included.

comment Windows 8 & Java Development
I did the Win8 upgrade and it backed up my old windows directory and all my previously installed programs worked just fine and all items in program menu were retained. After install, i recommend installing a program called "Soluto".

comment IE9 websites won't load on Windows 7
Toggling compat mode wont work. If the sites main HTML page has the "HTML4" declaration header in it, then it forces the browser into "Quirks mode", which is the same as being IN compat mode: the equivilant of IE5.5. mode, even if you set it to not be in compat mode.

comment SSD Drive - external vs Internal
In my experience, eSATA usually cannot go any faster than 1st generation USB3 (around 20-30 MB/s). The reason being that the eSATA is probably not connected through the system bus in the same way that internal SATA is connected. eSATA has the benefit of the command queueing like USB3, but not optimized, IMHO. I could be wrong.

comment SSD Drive - external vs Internal
You certainly would want to use USB3 instead of USB2, which the newer i5 laptops have, but even that 1st gen USB3 is too slow. What you really need is 2nd gen USB3.0, which is the only thing fast enough to keep up with an SSD, and there are not ANY laptops that have 2nd gen USB3 yet.
