comment Best (preferably free) tool to wipe deleted files on an NTFS filesystem
When you install, unless you blindly click next, you will come to a large selection menu. Most of the options I disable. I don't want the Toolbar, or the extra menu options on the Recycle Bin. I do want the Start Menu entries, but not the Desktop Icon. A lot of free utilities do this, and it is an annoyance that likely grabs the unsuspecting or casual user.

comment Security considerations with using an NTP server
cis.udel.edu/~mills/database/brief/autokey/autokey.ppt Mills is the original author for NTP. In his powerpoint he specifies that - An intruder can generate packets faster than the server, network or client can process them, especially if they require expensive cryptographic computations.

comment A script so that you don't forget your usb drive on a public computer
You could learn a lesson from the old people who play slots all the time. You know who I'm talking about, the runs with the visors and fanny packs. They have the clear telephone cord shaped clip for their player's card, so when they walk away from the slot machine it yanks the card back to them.

Which 'old' rs6000 console? Ths 3151 or 3153? You are talking about the serial consoles?

comment Remote Desktop and Aero in Windows 7
I made an edit to specifically point out the proper URL. The chart overall provides the "Aero glass remoting[37][38]" but I figured the direct link is more informational.

comment How to reliably keep an SSH tunnel open?
The interval specified is in seconds, so you can provide some fine tuning. If your stateful firewall has a 5 minute idle timeout, then 60 or 120 seconds is enough to keep the connection open. It's one of the ways I keep my ssh sessions through my home router open.
