comment Most reliable remote desktop / VNC for Windows
You use a PPPOE connection (Dial-Up Connection) to the External IP (the IP given by your ISP) once connected, you're essentially both on the same "network" you then VPN to her local IP address (the IP address of the actual machine) to get the internal IP just run IPCONFIG in command prompt

comment Send full youtube video via Gmail (not link, the actual video)?
You don't need to upload anything at all. This doesn't even require you to use GMail over and above letting him know what YouTube clip you want him to download. Let me simplify it for you. You find YouTube clip. You email link to video. He goes to clipconverter.cc and pastes the link you gave him into the bar, he then chooses for example "MP4" and clicks download. Whalah, he has the YouTube clip downloaded without you having to upload it at all. IT Administrator's don't usually disable this site, or any of it's sister sites by default, so with careful usage you'll be able to use it repeatedly

comment What's the purpose of the jumper on my XFX GeForce GTS 250 video card?
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S/PDIF You might not have an HDMI port on your card in which case you have a S/PDIF connector on your card, you use it if you're connecting your PC to a digital sound system or more commonly to a monitor with speakers. You could use an HDTV instead of a regular monitor, and connect it all via your graphics card. I got my information from a number of different posts on tomshardware.com and product documentation on what the included cables are used for. Some users claim that they are able to stream audio over the DVI port when using a DVI/HDMI converter.

Trimmed out all the "Fun" parts. Added measly disclaimer.

Do you want it to "AutoPlay/AutoRun" or do you just want to be able to access the files?

comment Modifiying a file in editor automatically
No offence taken, I offered you a solution you're capable of using. Whether you decide to use it or not is entirely up to you. You could download a simple open source text editor available for Linux and do the exact same thing I suggested you do with Notepad++.
