If you miss having the Caps Lock button on your #Chromebook… (via: Google Chrome – Google+)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/13

This reminds me about mapping the CapsLock to Windows-key on old Lenovo keyboard (you can do that with ReMapKey from Microsoft, the slightly more convoluted SharpKeys, or a AutoHotKey script), and a Mac equivalent:

If you miss having the Caps Lock button on your #Chromebook, you can turn the Search button into a Caps Lock button in a couple steps: find “Keyboard Settings” under the “Settings” menu, and select “Caps Lock” under the “Search” drop-down menu.

Or you can use this quick link on your Chromebook: chrome://settings/keyboard-overlay

Chromebook has quite some different keys than a Windows keyboard.

Ben Ostrowsky has a nice post with an SVG drawing of the Chromebook keyboard layout.

COMPACT.EXE to compress files, folders and volumes that use NTFS (via: The Old New Thing – Site Home – MSDN Blogs)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/13

Thanks Raymond Chen for suggesting about [WayBackCOMPACT.EXE to set NTFS compression flags for files, directories or volumes:

The command-line tool for this is COMPACT.EXE. Type compact /? for usage information.

Example to recursively compress D:\backup:

compact /C /S /A D:\backup\*.*

nmap finger printing: Usage and Examples

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/13

Just append -O and -v to a command-line:

nmap -O -v ip-address

Note you need administrative privileges for this on Mac OS X, so there you run it like this:

sudo nmap -O -v ip-address

If you want to scan more than the default 1000 TCP ports, then use the -p- switch:

sudo nmap -O -v -p- ip-address

For more info about the finger printing algorithms used by nmap:
