comment Programatically determine if an script is being executed on laptop or desktop?
+1 because it doesnt require root privileges. If you have root, dmidecode is probably the more reliable answer, but without it the revisted version her is useful.

comment Programatically determine if an script is being executed on laptop or desktop?
Apparently my 4U IBM server with an APC SmartUPS plugged in over USB is a laptop. I certainly wouldn't want that thing on my lap all day! (ie, if it has a UPS plugged in and configured for shutdown/monitoring, that directory will exist)

@zaemz Be sure to reconfigure any dhcp servers to give out the windows server for dns.

@zoli Just beware that some applications behave differently for a missing certificate than for one explicitly marked as untrusted.

comment How can I know if someone has logged into my account in Windows 7?
Why would I need to login? I'd just pull your hard drive out, plug it into mine, and copy your email/files/super secret stuff without ever logging into your PC.

@armani I think we kind of assumed that you had already checked for suspicious looking usb dongles. Definitely something to remember for next time.

comment Are there options for disk wiping software that do not require booting into the software first?
This is exactly how I do it. Disconnect internal drives and boot from cd. Remember to unplug any other usb drives you have as well. DBAN has detected every usb drive I have tried.

comment How can I run a script locally from a remote server such as www.mysite.com/script.sh?
Yes assuming they are all sh scripts. Some could require other interpreters.

Why on earth would you want to do that? The website may just change that script to read "rm -rf *" or worse.

Sadly, some of the computers are still windows XP and lack this search feature.

comment Bad owner or permissions on /root/.ssh/config in a virtual machine
@automatix A virtual machine needs the same security as a physical machine. Perhaps you mean it needs less security because it's on an isolated network - if so, fine. But if its attached to the network like a physical machine, it needs the same security.

comment Remote Access from wLAN to LAN
Home networking is offtopic here. Superuser might be a better fit foe this question.

comment Search multiple shared calendars in Outlook 2010
When I tested that, it would only find events from one calendar. eg. if I had events called "test a", "test b", etc on 3 different calendars and searched for "test" it would only show one of them. But I will try again.

comment Search multiple shared calendars in Outlook 2010
I dont think you actually CAN select multiple calendars at once. ctrl clicking a second calendar just focuses on the second one.

It searches the currently selected shared calendar. But not all of them.

comment Update TSSTcorp CDDVD Drivers
In that case, it's not a problem of drivers, but of filters. pcsupport.about.com/od/driverssupport/ht/… tells you how to remove them. When finished, you might need to reinstall itunes.
