comment Is it possible to run multiple instances/windows of Finder in Mac OS X?
+1 I do use it for move/copying files. I finder the default MacOSX Finder to be rather basic/dull, so now I use Binary Night's Forklift. Thanks for your suggestion.

comment Are external USB hard drives meant to be connected all the time?
@Breakthrough Although it covers very similar grounds, I think this post is relevant and worth reading: Dr. Strangedupe: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying And Love Duplication

comment Are external USB hard drives meant to be connected all the time?
@Breakthrough I can see the similarities, but I don't consider it a duplicate. I'm explicitly asking about an external USB device (HDD), whereas that question is asking about an entire computer with access to larger fans, and is generally accepted to be left on 24/7. External HDDs generally have their own power source too. The hardware is a different beast altogether, so to speak.

comment “Invalid MS-DOS function” error message when copying a file
I updated my question. The DVD contains other mp4 files which copied over just fine. The DVD is full of mp4 files I made a while ago.

comment How to get Quadraphonic audio channel option in Speaker Setup?
@emb1995 I have tried all of those, and those drivers do not work. I have drivers that work, but I cannot get the rear speakers. I'm not even sure if trying to find different drivers is even the heart of the issue or not. I'm looking for a solution that will add Quadraphonic into the Speaker Setup, maybe through some kind of setting.

Ok, I was able to find it here: support.creative.com/downloads/download.aspx?nDownloadId=10964 but I'm getting error that it was unable to find a compatible device to install on, even when running in Vista mode.

comment How to format linux filesystem within Windows 7?
@freethinker the BIOS did show the hard disks, but they were disabled somehow. That was the problem.

comment How to format linux filesystem within Windows 7?
Thanks. The answer was that the BIOS somehow had this SATA drive disabled, which is certainly weird how my previous install of Ubuntu it was working. After enabling it, I booted up Win7 again and the drive was visible and available to be formatted.

comment Add column to Tweetdeck for all tweets sent out
I believe this is what I described and have set up. It doesn't show my retweets or my replies when I tweet to someone directly.

Windows Sidebar, no-- I don't think so. For Desktop Sidebar, yes-- according to their FAQ which I've updated in my answer.

comment Connecting Two external monitors
Hrm, I'm not sure what to do if only 1 of the 2 external displays shows up. Is it the VGA or the DVI (white connector) that shows up?

comment WPF Application from Visual Studio 2010 crashes Windows 7
Have you tried putting in break points into your code? Can you rule out that your program isn't eating up all the memory?

comment How to upgrade XBMC Live via command line?
I'm going to accept this as the right answer, because it does upgrade it. I'm just having trouble getting the UI to start up.
