comment How to connect to Wi-Fi AP through WPS?
Don't know why this is being downvoted - it's a practical solution to the main reason this question is useful - that is "I don't know the WIFI password, but I have WPS access, how can I connect?" +1 This also work on android, with a root-mode file explorer, you can check the passwords in /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf.

comment Remove duplicate mp3 with different name, size, and hash
The MusicBrainz database that Picard uses is user-editable. You can create new entries for artists, works (songs) and releases (albums/EPs), and then use Picard to re-tag/move the files. It's a bit of effort, but it works - and it's helpful to others.

comment (grep) Regex to match non-ASCII characters?
This is really nice for fixing bad filenames - rename 's/[^\x00-\x7F]//g' * (you can use -n to check the renames are ok first).

comment Convert mp3 to wav using FFmpeg for VBR
You're probably better off doing ffmpeg -i song.mp3 song.wav, as that will choose the appropriate bitrate (which is probably 44.1khz). If you're converting to wav, you're probably not wanting to lose further information..

comment What would be a good alternative visual way of representing the Push and Pull signs in doors?
Darker green would be easier to read :) The red could also probably be a bit darker.

comment What's the best way to do literate programming in Python on Windows?
Ipython/Jupyter Notebooks are good for exploration, but they really don't compare to rmarkdown/Sweave - they are painful to work with in git, because they store a lot of metadata and output in the XML file that's not necessary to keep a history of (really, you only want the generators, not the output). Pweave is a better solution for literate programming.
