A thing I found:

To print PDFs from the command line, when you have Foxit Reader installed:

"Foxit Reader.exe" /p PdfFile.pdf

Gaaah.  I'm trying to install this web app that, among other things, uses AJAX with POST to call this .json page for its own nefarious purposes.

The problem: 405 error.

I have added .json to the mappings.  All verbs are allowed.  I've added .json to the mime-type section.  YET NOTHING.

If I change the request to GET, then it works fine.  But POST just fails.

Windows 7 64-bit, IIS7.

GAAAAAAA

If you frequently reset IE7 or IE8, for whatever godawful reason, you may be interested in how to disable the Getting Started crap.

What is the command-line regex in Perl for "replace every line that does NOT have $string in it"?

Bizarre question:

What are the default PATH variables you would recommend for someone running Windows 7?

(Not me.  I miscalculated wrt someone else's technical know-how level.)

I have an ignorant question.

The end result here is an automatically generated image that contains text*.  I can do this easily in PHP.  However, the web server does not have PHP installed, and the IT person is underinterested in installing it.  Fair enough.

My workstation has PHP installed and happy.  My computer is Windows 7; the server is Windows 2003 Server.

Is it possible for WebComp to have a webpage that points to \\WorkStation\image.png?

I spectacularly doubt it, but I figured I'd ask.

Alternately, how can I make a text-based image in ASP or JS or something?

* It's a list of links, that the boss wants in image form.  Don't ask.

Welp, so far, Windows 7 is slower and somehow infinitely more annoying.  So that's terrific.

If you use Windows, so.  You know how you can drag a file to another folder?  Apparently you can alt-tab between windows while dragging a file.  I never knew!

Windows tip for today:

Say you're copying a bunch of documents from folder1 to folder2, and there are some same-name-plicates.  "This folder already contains a file named 'Your mother.doc'."  There's Yes, Yes To All, No, and Cancel.

To get No To All (so that the same-named files are ignored), hold down the Shift key and click No.

Let us say you have a Windows XP machine that is being eaten alive by a trojan.  You have no internet access.  What do you do?

>_

Mine:

a) Boot into safe mode.
b) Run every anti-suckware thing you do have installed.
c) Check Add/Remove Programs for anything that looks weird - long shot, but why not?
d) Get a thumb drive or burn a CD or ask a friend to send you a CD or something, but somehow acquire and make available these programs:

* Spybot
* Ad-Aware
* AVG

And run those on repeat a lot.

Honestly, I've not kept up with good anti-suckware software, though I continue to avoid Symantic like the syphilitic plague that it is.

So, what would you recommend?

If your Windows computer does those system beeps and you hate it:

* Right-click My Computer and select Manage.
* Expand System Tools and select Device Manager.
* From the View menu, select Show hidden devices.
* Expand Non-Plug and Play Drivers.
* Right-click Beep, and select Disable.
* Reboot.
