How to stop Nikon Transfer 2 autoload

This is one of those things that has been really bugging me. I know it bugs other people but they have given up trying to figure out a solution. I have to hand it to the nikonians for showing me how to stop this problem on my computer. This trick may or may not work […]

Passing parameters to shell scripts
