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.

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.

comment What's the easiest way to transfer my Firefox settings from one computer to another?
The nice thing about copying the profile is you also copy over all your sqlite files, including places and forms data. This is both a good and bad thing depending upon how your use firefox. Since I rely upon completion within the awesome bar, having my places database intact is very useful.
