comment Non-Apple monitor with DisplayPort not recognized by a Mac
But the question is that the Mac doesn't recognize the monitor when using the DisplayPort input of the monitor, a DisplayPort cable that came with the monitor, and that adapter to connect the cable to the mini-DisplayPort port on the Mac. The monitor is recognized when I try it with DVI but of course I don't get the full resolution; but with DisplayPort the Mac acts like there is no monitor (does not react to plug/unplug events).

Here is the link to the adapter. It says it does not support dual-link DVI but does support full resolution DisplayPort. monoprice.com/…

comment How do I start Notepad++ from cmd?
A cmd file is often called a "batch file". In the days of MS-DOS, the extension was always .BAT but these days it is often .cmd. The commands in the file are executed by cmd.exe which is the command-line shell itself.

comment How to transition to Comcast with static IP address
Oh, hello again! And thanks for the answer. Yes, it did occur to me to just try connecting to both addresses and see which one works. The Comcast support person said the "routable IP address" would be a piece of equipment connected to the cable box. I was wondering if anyone else knows this odd jargon... I tried Google searching for "routable static IP address" with unsatisfying results. Maybe this isn't Comcast-speak but just weird jargon made up by the person to whom I was speaking on the phone?
