Help me help

OK, so in an effort to "monetize" this blog, I added a Donate button yesterday (lookey over yonder ->). I'd like to donate 50% of all donations to a worthwhile cause—the other half just helps keep this site, and my webbish ambitions, alive—assuming of course there's any whole to divide up in the first place!

So come on, make a donation, then convince me why I should benefact your favourite charity.

Images missing from Windows Vista Help and Support Pages

I switched back to Vista a couple of weeks ago, after giving up trying to live in Kubuntu for the second time in a year. I noticed one minor nit after I moved back in, all of the image graphics in Vista's Help and Support pages had mysteriously disappeared, leaving only little boxes with red x's behind them. Fortunately, a quick Googling brought me to Ramesh Srinivasan's solution - a quick registry patch file, courtesy of Mr. Srinvasan, restored the help page graphics to their former glory.

Diffing where I want, and diffing the same file

I use WinMerge a lot for general interactive file diff/merge/munging. It's great, free, etc. But what I'd really like is a diff tool that a) lets *me* decide which bits in each buffer match up as the starting point, and b) let me compare two sections of the same file. Does this exist? Please let me know. Please.
