comment How do I run a JAR file without installing Java?
(Even more, I think it's a good question, which just makes me more curious...)

Even if your question was actually an XY problem: the above is not a duplicate of the one you voted for. What are you trying to achieve with your edits of the title and that close vote? Given your reputation on SO I guess you know, but please remember that all Stack Exchange sites try to be a useful resource for future visitors.

comment What type of bolt is used to attach a sound card to an expansion plate?
I have no idea, but why do you think they would need anything special? I'd say: anything that fits would do? So just get a bolt and nut that fit together and are not wider than the current bolt and nut. And add (re-use) a washer to not damage the circuit board when fastening them. (I don't think you should get a "screw", and I doubt tgies's answer is correct, as I feel no nut will fit a 6-32 screw.)

comment Am I doing it wrong by downvoting a answer, which misleads OP?
I feel there's a difference in not supporting IE7, or failing on IE7, @Louis. (Especially when there's a perfectly okay alternative, which was already posted as an answer.)

comment sstatic.net down, CSS missing
As an aside: earlier today I had trouble loading all SE sites through the Dutch provider XS4ALL: nothing loaded at all (not just the CSS, but the pages themselves). Other sites loaded fine. I did not bother to investigate but switching to UPC resolved it. I just switched back now, and all seems fine.

revised Allowing every password of 6+ characters. Good practice?
Fixed image title and alt texts: no reference to xkcd can go without the original title attribute! ;-)

comment Allowing every password of 6+ characters. Good practice?
I guess this is a good read, related to @Voo's comment and "Length alone can be good enough as security requirement": Grammar badness makes cracking harder the long password: "The result: it was much more efficient at cracking passphrases such as "abiggerbetter password" or "thecommunistfairy" because they followed commonly used grammatical rules [...]"

comment ctrl + click in stackoverflow.com
Too bad rejected migrations do not allow for re-opening on the target site; despite this being a browser feature, I guess that a feature request to disable it as described in Control+Click on table cells: How to disable the blue border around the table cell wouldn't have been received that badly. (If it doesn't prevent one from selecting text. Related: MDN documentation for user-select.)

comment How do you deep link to an answer?
Beware that the short URL includes your user id; see Privacy leak in permalink? Also note that Ctrl/Cmd-clicking "share" will work in most browsers, to open the long URL in a new tab. Somehow Shift-clicking it to open in a new window does not work though.

comment Why don't you include auto capitalization in the starting of a sentence?
(Pssst, though I couldn't agree more: I don't think that Word would auto-capitalize text that already includes some capital?)

comment Should a user ask a question he already knows the answer?
Er, the OP explicitly asks "Does pip provide a way to find packages by a regex? Or, should I just pipe the results of django- to grep to filter out irrelevant packages?" -- then why do you think the OP knows the answer?

comment How to automatically replace links with their title on SE?
As for comments: Replace links with the current question title in comments (declined).

comment How to automatically replace links with their title on SE?
Ah, that's a link to a comment. Maybe that matters? Surely you'd better not link to comments from posts, as comments are easily deleted. Also, automatic conversion is only supported in posts, not in comments. (But that's just the same on Meta.) Still then: even that link works for me.
