    I've heard suggestions that it might be best to wait a bit until changing passwords, until all the dust has settled, or to change now and then change again later.

    Best method for diagnosing a hard drive: Download the Ultimate Boot CD and burn to a disc or a usb stick (bootable.) Boot the computer to this and you'll have all the manufacturer hdd test utilities.

    I was under the impression that the newer lead-free solders were a little harder to desolder -- needed higher temps.

    Up to now I've managed well against viruses. My biggest weakness has been procrastination in networking. Other than delivering internet to both upstairs and down via ethernet, I haven't employed it...

    Korea is a very compact country so it should be easier to cover. But that's no excuse for not matching their speed in say, New York City.

    From what I was reading elsewhere it sounded more like the breach was not at the retail level but an inside job at a head or branch office. Whichever, this is a serious issue for anyone with a Target...

    Darn Linux! This wouldn't happen on Windows.

    OH.....................

    There is no perfect OS. But given the glitches on linux, and there are many, I have to take advantage when I can.

    Interesting read, but I'd argue useless to end the debate on onboard sound vs. discrete. But my bias goes back to decades of reading Stereo Review and properly conducted tests. Their lab tests were...

    I would suggest looking at business class laptops. You're more likely to find non-glossy screens, a strong preference of mine, and the build quality tends to be higher, more rugged. Given your size...

    No Adobe here -- switched to Foxit long ago, then to Sumatra. The only Adobe I have is Flash. The article seems to point more at the purchased products, Photoshop, etc.

    Nothing I have here will run 8.1 except possibly some of the unbuilt desktop hardware (don't ask -- see below avatar). When even C2D quads, if on an Intel DP35 motherboard, can't run it, you have to...
