“Copy as path” option in Microsoft Windows

Very often I want to copy the full path of a file to my MATLAB environment for quick testing. Before my coworker showed me the trick, I tried to staple the filename I copied from the Explorer window to the address bar then re-copy the whole. That was dumb.

For some reason, Windows stowed away a slick feature called ‘Copy as Path’. You have to hold “SHIFT” key while right-clicking to get the good stuff displayed (same as “Open Command Window Here”).  What a crime!

This website shows you a way to have the menu option activated by default:

Garfield and Friends’ ‘Italian’ BGM

Besides Anamaniacs, Garfield and Friends has always been my favorite TV cartoon show in the early 90s.

They both used classics for BGM like ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’ and ‘Humoresque’ because it’s cheap to license and highly recognizable for parody purposes. For decades I’ve been wondering what is the name of the background music used when something ‘Italian’ is involved … one day I heard my boss (a Brazillian with an Italian descent) humming that and I asked him what it was. Turns out it’s called Tarantella Napoletana.
