comment PowerPoint embedded video does not play visibly. Sometimes audio can be heard
Coming back to this old question: it happens with acceleration set to be zero in both WMP and Windows, with any codec, and the only video software on the box is WMP. It's some weirdness in the company setup.

comment sudo with password in one command line?
Yes, user45909, you're quite right. I have personally never rerun ./configure && make except after downloading an update of the main package anyway, but I'm probabably not typical.

comment PowerPoint embedded video does not play visibly. Sometimes audio can be heard
Not for me. Freezes PowerPoint entirely. Thanks for trying on this very old question, though. My company will be upgrading me to PP 2010 soon, and in any case we're largely abandoning PP in favor of SMART Notebook anyway.

comment Acrobat 9: Page numbers added to footer in Acrobat do not print
He's presumably agreeing that the problem was caused by my adding page numbers as an annotation. Which as it happens I did not.

comment Alt+O pressed, Format menu doesn't descend
@skypcakes, nope, it still does this. However, my employer will be upgrading us to Office 2010 soon, which will remove this problem by removing menus entirely and replacing them with the Ribbon [spit!].

comment Linux Flash Player with 2 Monitors: always full-screen on primary monitor
That addon does not help in this case. It seems to just activate the Flash Player's "fullscreen" mode, which still appears on the wrong monitor. And no site, literally, that I want to play video from has popout, except Hulu, which maximizes to the correct screen anyway.

comment Debian Squeeze: Trackpad on EEE PC 1000HA acts like slate
It isn't a Synaptics pad, but thanks. As mentioned in my comment on alpha1's answer, the synaptics software has no effect.

comment Virtual Machine is 'inaccessible'
@AndersonGreen, you can create a new VM (using Linux as the guest OS if you don't have a spare Windows license) and mount the virtual machine's HD as a second hard disk. Takes maybe 15 minutes on a reasonably fast PC. You can directly mount the virtual disks but I'm lazy and never learned how.
