comment Windows Explorer software that auto-rename files in ascending order
@Jack Is this a one time deal, or is this something you want to do as a rolling job? Like every time you delete one of the files, the rest get renamed in order to match up?

This also came to mind for me as well. Not as elegant but much less of a headache.

comment Is it technically possible to make a self-destructing movie clip?
I think slhck is on the right track here. You would have to have a self contained system. The player and file are contained in one, and when it finishes the media stream its instructed to delete itself. Something like this could be accomplished a simply as telling the exe to open a command prompt and execute a bat file that it generated in a random temp folder location on the computer. The bat file would simply have a short delay to allow the exe to quit, then issue a delete command, which should succeed because at that point the exe should not be running anymore. interesting premise to try.

comment How to share and play music in my office
You just want a server for people to connect and play music FROM? Or this is actually hooked to stereo equipment and people would play music in the office like juke box?

comment Windows 7 on an old machine
While I don't disagree with this comment, for most people, what LamarB said holds true. A lot of end users just don't NEED to utilize the 64 bit capabilities of the OS and CPU.

comment Laptop Power Supplies- AMPS Confusion
@BrianA "As it's a laptop the battery provides the power". That says to me you are saying the laptop runs off the battery all of the time. Even if you didn't MEAN that, that is what it says. Even less that, this answer is still incorrect as suggesting an improperly volted power adapter "would do it as well" as the properly volted power adapter is BAD advice. The unit needs 20V, otherwise the engineers would have provided a 19V adapter. Yes the Watts are similar, but most Adapters have close wattage (45W,65W,90W). Running it long term in this fashion will not prolong the life of the unit.

Something needs to be reviewed here. This answer has misinformation in it, it should not be marked as the answer.

comment Laptop Power Supplies- AMPS Confusion
The battery does NOT provide power to a laptop running on an adapter power source. This is incorrect. When a laptop battery in removed from a powered on laptop, nothing happens. The charging circuits stop charging the battery altogether when it is full. The computer does not RUN from the battery when plugged in. It reverts to battery when DC current is removed. A battery cannot be charged and discharged at the same time. The chemical reactions in the battery don't work that way.

comment Several Issues with my mac mini (mid 2010). Is it RAM? Is it Disk?
This also makes sense. I would try to run Memtest with only one slot occupied, then the other slot, individually. Could help solidify this as the answer as well.

comment Is there a way to require Outlook users to include a location in meetings?
Not so much an answer, as Im unsure about making the location in the meeting invitation mandatory, I honestly think there isn't a way. But as a suggested solution to the problem, you could create an Office resource calendar that is shared (under public folders) and mandate that when people schedule something they both check that first, and add thier meeting to it when its placed. It may clear up some confusion and conflicts once people get used to using it.
