comment Pipe System sound to another computer
This answer doesn't address the question. What about streaming videos from within the browser and VoIP calls, for instance?

comment what is the best backup solution for 400GB?
@leora Either you backup remotely (e.g. via ssh, rsnapshot can do that, for instance) or you retrieve it regularly. Of course not every day; e.g. you can clone your external backup drive every two weeks onto the remore one and bring it back to the ”safe place”.

Two 500GiB (or 1500GiB) hard drives? E.g. alternating each day and you never lose more that two day's data (assuming no more than two drives die at at same time).

comment Increase Firefox Speed?
I did that. It's slightly faster (for me). It might pay off when you have a rather slow HDD; on SSD I would say it's not worth the effort.

comment Vector graphics formats: SVG , EPS or PDF
If you are using pdftex (or luatex) then go for the pdf output. You have to convert the files otherwise.

comment What is the preferrable way to archive a private DVD collection?
When you decide to backup to .iso images and you use a player not supporting those, you can always mount the images and directly access the content. It works with every player.
