comment Can VLC crop black borders on the fly?
If you need access to this account to register it, use this tool - then register, so you can stop creating new accounts every time.

revised How can I automatically update Flash Player whenever a new version is released?
This was kind of a mess; there's a good question here, and plenty of good prior research, but it was buried kinda deep; attempted to separate the question from the copious amounts of background information, speculation, and frustrated ranting.

comment If I buy a computer with Windows 8 and Secure Boot, will I still be able to install Linux?
It's not Microsoft that worries me here, it's the manufacturers. Sure, ARM devices might still be seen as toys now, but the various ARM platforms have come an awful long way in the past few years, and I can easily imagine a day when folks use them for more than just watching YouTube videos... Giving up the ability to update or replace the OS now seems short-sighted. That said, thanks for writing this up - it definitely helps clarify what is, and what isn't problematic about Secure Boot.
