Only useful if your parent folder name is unique. Not always the case...

comment Better way to search the Facebook activity log / timeline?
@R-U-Bn I guess it's still being rolled out progressively. facebook.com/about/graphsearch shows you have to enable it, and it's available for "English audiences."

comment URL shorteners or redirectors whose target links can be changed after it was made
SnipURL has deleted twice my snips in the past 2 years, and I never got an explanation. Definitely not sending unsolicited emails with them in it. I do have a standard reply to my students with a link to my home page, which has an embedded Google Calendar in it that's SnipURL'd... How that gets construed as spam by their automated system is a (confounding) mystery.

How is this different than the alternative I mentioned in the question (ie not a good way)?

+1 and it's faster than the app that brute-force searches, too

comment Show only distinct results matching keyword in Google Image Search, no duplicates
Can you post a search that does return dozens of images of the same thing? I'm not seeing this.

comment Quick sign-in to Google Sites for Google Apps for Education?
The word "admin" is vague here... there's a site owner and then there's the "admin" for the entire domain. In fact, I found out that as the site owner I can modify the system footer. I think that is what you meant in this answer? I think the site configuration overrides the domain configuration.

comment How do I retrieve a message I accidentally archived in Gmail?
Over 120k views of this question! Seems like Gmail could use a "recent changes" feature (like you find on web sites or wiki pages). That would allow one to locate messages in such cases. Archiving an "old" message leads to trouble since it won't appear at the top of the All Mail list. However, it would appear at the top of a "recent changes" list.

You set chat visibility to invisible if you don't want anyone to know you are awake.

comment How to get a Weibo feed to show up in Facebook (for free)?
FaWave requires a VPN to post to western social media sites. If I had a VPN, I wouldn't need to ask the question. I could post to Facebook directly. VPNs cost money but Weibo does not.

comment How to get a Weibo feed to show up in Facebook (for free)?
Curiously, Instagram was not blocked when I was in China (Dec'12-Jan'13). This was how I shared the photos to facebook. Other things that don't work: Google+ (mostly because Picasa is blocked) as well as Google Drive. I read that Google Drive was blocked the day it went online, with rumors of China blocking it to protect Chinese cloud services.

comment How to block sites with Google News?
@Hydra your comment led me to test further. It seems that it's a problem with Google multiple sign-in. If I'm signed into more than one account, even though I use the account which has blocked dailymail.co.uk for the news search, the search ignores that setting. The solution is to sign out of all accounts and only sign into the the account which has blocked the site.

comment How to block sites with Google News?
Perhaps it wasn't clear in my question, but I already tried this. The site is "manually blocked" in that list, but News still shows its articles in the feed.

comment How do you share a Facebook photo album with people that don't want to register for Facebook?
@HoogstudentengildeDeWesp that is a different problem. I want to share my wedding pics with a cousin who is not on Facebook and won't be signing up.
