How to set up shared folder desktop sync in OneDrive for Business?

OneDrive for Business recently (finally!) implemented shared folder desktop sync - previously you could only sync to your desktop if the folders were created by you but not if they were shared to you. I can't find instructions for setup anywhere despite detailed searching including limiting results to the last month. Any ideas? [more inside]

Find this late '90s or early '00s Subaru "frozen in time" commercial

As a kid in the late '90s or early '00s, I remember seeing a Subaru commercial where a power line or telephone pole sparks and falls, and a Subaru narrowly avoids hitting the falling pole. The scene freezes much like in the Discover "Freeze It" commercial, and a narrator talks about Subaru's all-wheel-drive. I vividly remember him grabbing a piece of popcorn that the children in the back seat are eating and saying, "mmm...tasty" or something. The scene un-freezes and the car drives off. Can anyone find this commercial?

Can someone recommend a good solution for ModX migration to Wordpress

Hi all, I've inherited a fairly horrible done site full kinks and NO ONE likes ModX, it's really a horrible CMS and not user friendly unless you got developer chops. That said, how easy are ModX to Wordpress migrations? I saw some cost around $1500 but unsure who is really proven in this space. Thanks

How do I feed myself motivational quotes?

Is there any iOS equivalent to the fortune app? I've got a list of quotes I really like. I'd like to be fed one a day, ideally using the notifications feature of my iPhone, but I'm up for email as well. Do I need to roll my own for this, or is there an existing solution out there?

Bumper stickers with a single "M"

I've started seeing these round "M" bumper stickers around my part of town a lot, usually black, but today's was blue. I haven't been able to get close enough to read the url, and Google image search hasn't helped, unless people are super-into advertising the Paris Metro. I realize it could be anything, and could be regional, but does anyone know what they represent?

A window to another world? XBox one to iMac Skype chat - will it work?

I'm trying to set up a system so that I can hang out with a family member from my iMac and their living room TV. I'm open to any system, but it seems like the easiest thing might be to get them an Xbox One + Kinect and do the chat via Skype. Will that work? Is there another way that would be easier/better?

What trails in Jefferson Co, CO are comfortably rideable on cross bikes?

That's pretty much the question. We'll be in Jefferson County, Colorado, USA, towards the end of July. We don't have mountain bikes (this was going to be their debut weekend, but alas), but are active dirt/gravel/light trail/B road cyclists, on bikes with 40mm tires and drop bars (gravel grinders). What trails would/could you recommend? [more inside]

Database or book of post-nominal letters from certifications?

I recently completed a professional certification process and picked up some post-nominal letters without realizing that would be an outcome of the process. It was fun to learn more about the field and get such a visible result, and now that I have those letters after my name, I am starting to wonder what other letters are available for any of the different areas in which I work (completely separate / discrete businesses). Is there a database for this? A book? Books? The areas in question are web development & devops, full-stack webmastering, and...life coaching. I currently hold certifications & memberships in all these areas, but not letters so much. Thanks!
