comment Which components are most susceptible to kinetic damage (fall)
A former colleague dropped his laptop (in protective bag) down the centre gap of a stairwell - 3 floors. The only damage was his mouse (presumed to have been damaged by the manual he had in the same pocket). Next week, you'll merely look at an component an it will break!

I'd speak to the laptop manufacturer - they may have a way of configuring this behaviour - certainly worth a try.

comment What things should I run daily, weekly, monthly on my Windows machine?
Most decent backup programs have an encryption option anyway, but Truecrypt is useful for other stuff. But my main concern was with the loss of data, rather than the effect of it being in evil hands...

comment Select full file name when renaming on Windows
Yes, so was I... It was a welcome & long overdue feature, but you knew once is was implemented, that someone would be hankering for the 'good old days'... On the rare occasion where you change the extension, is it too much trouble to press CTRL-A (or use the mouse)?
