Drilled into studs, light flickered momentarily but everything else seems fine now - should I be worried?


Since this is closet, there seems to be no real reason not to go ahead and remove the wallboard (or plaster and lath) a few inches to each side of the stud and see if there is a wire there. You should probably get a non-contact voltage detector and check the vicinity of where you are going to cut just in case there is wiring just behind the wall. Nothing particularly special about this model. There are other similar devices from other makers and you can get them at your local big-box store. Note that just if it doesn't detect anything, that doesn't mean you haven't hit a wire. It might just be too far in the wall.

If there is a wire where you drilled, you should assume you've hit it and repair the wiring. If you decide to fix it yourself, make sure match the wire gauges and put any splices in a junction box that is accessible.

Repairing the wall is fairly easy if you don't have to worry about making it look nice and generally that's not a concern inside a closet. Just...

Screenshot / Code Snippet


Since people keep asking for a way to stick the userbar at the top of the screen, I'm working on a userscript to do so. Because of the way each site is fashioned and themed, various elements are in different places. So there are some parts that don't work "quite right" such as notifications (aka the supermulticollider), but otherwise it's pretty usable for the basic parts.


License? Bah. It's a userscript. I'm gonna go with everything else on this site: CC-BY-SA


Feel free to download the userscript here: (for now, stay tuned to this space for updates)



Any browser that supports userscripts. That's quite a few of them, but nothing IE8 or lower.


I drachenstern am the only dev on this project right now.


It's all in javascript/jQuery. I'll get it...

I'm really at a loss on this one.

I have recently (as in yesterday) purchased a Galaxy GeForce 210 graphics card, purely so I can run my 17" Dell LCD beside my Samsung 24". I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit.

Everything seemed to be working fine - I installed the card, installed the drivers that came with it (which it says are Windows 7 compatible) and away we went. The 17" plugged into VGA and the Samsung into DVI.

However, after running for a little bit, I started to notice that every now and then (read about once or twice a minute) the Dell would flicker or flash a bit. The best way I can think to describe this is imagine you have made the Windows task bar about a third of the screen tall, and then suddenly shrunk it and your graphics card couldn't keep up - so you get a momentary flash of black before the desktop shows. That's what is happening to me.

It doesn't matter what application is running - or even if no application is running - and...

Who doesn’t want respect? Whoever you are, you’d want—or need—respect, in one way or another. It doesn’t really matter whether you’re a “someone” in a semipolitical culture, or the new kid on the block … far, far away from home.

People will either respect you or not.

When everything seems irreversibly wrong, however, especially when you find yourself alone, do you still know how to respect yourself? Like, when the people you used to trust turned their back on you? Or—they simply showed you who they really are, only different from how you’ve known them?

Let’s define respect for a minute. Interestingly, the term has a handful of definitions, even though similar to one another.

Here’s what I came up with: Respect is the condition, attitude, behavior, expression or feeling with which a person demonstrates honor, admiration, friendship, esteem or regard to another person.

Wonderful words, right? Whether you see it or not, respect is simply beautiful....

I came from drop tops and old school Chevy's
Dope boys rollin' through, shittin' on ya heavy
Fifteens in the trunk beatin' down your block
Only 4 years old when Biggie got shot
I remember playing on the block, hanging on the block
Young niggas slanging on the block, getting off them rocks
Now we livin' better now, Coogi sweater now

Stars light up when mouse hovers
There's a brilliant tutorial on the web for designing a 5 star rating system: http://rog.ie/blog/css-star-rater. It's purely CSS so no need for Javascripting.

Page doesn't have to be reloaded when a star is clicked (not really needed)
Ajax is your friend, what I did was to have a where represented a star and the submitRating() function used Ajax to transmit my rating (1/5) to the server, the server stores the rating (and assigns the user that gave the rating) and recalculates the new average rating and submit the results back in JSON format.

Some sort of average shown beside the stars
Easy. Write a SQL script that, based on the product id, takes the sum of the average rating (i.e. 1/5 + 2/5 + 4/5, etc), divide it(sum) by the total amount of ratings and multiplies it by 100. Return the value back to the server, and from the server back to the client.

Rating has to be stored somewhere in a MySQL database (Is this...

Here are the steps I need, I am using a batch script

Open a cmd with path set to the desktop Then set it's echo off Then clear the screen Then wait for me to type commands

So I can enter the commands directly without a long line blocking the view

Code I tried so far

@echo off cd "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop" cls cmd @echo off cls

But when I run this I get a typical CMD window, where I have to type "echo off" & "cls" again to get a clean window.

The output I get is

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600] (C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp. C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop>

The output I want is simple

Imagine a blinking underscore

This is same as the accepted answer, but a much simpler representation:

public static IEnumerable> Split(this IEnumerable items, int numOfParts) { int i = 0; return items.GroupBy(x => i++ % numOfParts); }

The above method splits an IEnumerable into N number of chunks of equal sizes or close to equal sizes.

public static IEnumerable> Partition(this IEnumerable items, int partitionSize) { int i = 0; return items.GroupBy(x => i++ / partitionSize).ToArray(); }

The above method splits an IEnumerable into chunks of desired fixed size with total number of chunks being unimportant - which is not what the question is about.

The problem with the Split method, besides being slower, is that it scrambles the output in the sense that the grouping will be done on the basis of i'th multiple of N for each position, or in other words you don't get the chunks in the original order.

Almost every answer here...
