comment Does a graphics card use electricity if it's installed but not being used?
Try using a device like "kill-a-watt" to measure your power consumption. You plug your computer into kill-a-watt and plug kill-a-watt into the wall. It has a display that shows power consumption and can even estimate cost per minute, hour, week, month and year. (I realize this sounds like spam -- if I were aware of competing products, I'd list them, but this is what I use.)

comment Is it advisable to use Crystal Reports remotely with Amazon RDB
Amazon gives you a lot of control. I can specify the region when creating the DB server. I am in the process of coordinating a test with my users, but they're scattered all over. I'm hoping for feedback from people who have walked this road before.

comment iPhone-like unified inbox/messaging client for Windows 7?
Brilliant! I can't believe I hadn't heard of inbox2. It has been around for a while now. It it glitchy -- still can't read my exchange email, but it has social networking hooks FTW. Thanks for the suggestion.

comment How do I upload huge files across the internet without using P2P?
The drawback to sending physical media, of course is that someone has to receive it and then copy it out to the network, where a digital solution means I don't have to rely on anyone else. In the end, I set up an FTP server on my PC and downloaded it to my work computer. It worked beautifully and transferred in a day and a half.

You know what? I was mistaken. I wasn't using PASV. As soon as I set up the FTP server to use PASV, I was all set! I ended up using your answer with the Network Admin's blessing. I was able to transfer at 650kbps which was pretty much the full measure of my 5Mb upstream and transferred all 44gb in about a day and a half. Green check for you - and thanks again for the suggestion!

Unfortunately, I'm using a home ISP (Cox). They prevent home users from setting up web servers and ftp servers.

Hm! Not familiar with this one. Asperasoft.com isn't blocked by our content filter, so maybe there is a shot!

Presumes that they have Blu-Ray on their side... unfortunately, they're behind the tech curve by several years.

This is a great idea! (I can't believe I didn't think of it myself.) Unfortunately, after testing, my ISP prevents me from setting up an FTP or Web Server
