comment When using synergy, it lags sometimes
@AlbertBori wow - this was from 4 years ago. It isn't happening at this point for me, but I've got fresh OS installs, and a different desktop computer since then... I don't recall what the problem ended up being. Sorry

comment Hooking up my power switch/reset switch/LEDs
Ah, that's good to know. It's likely this is a new thing, since I would have noticed those. A lot can change in motherboard design in 4 years!

No, the drive has 30BG free before putting the 20GB file on it. Re-reading my question, I wasn't clear, but you did interpret it correctly.

This is what I'm afraid of... I'm going to leave the question open for a few days, see if I get someone who knows how to do it. If not, I'll accept your answer.

comment Synergy mouse/keyboard freezes on SUSE 11.1
I had asked superuser.com/q/218029/16133 earlier. I never did much as far as checking out the possibilities since changing routers (for an unrelated purpose) fixed it, but perhaps his answer could provide some ideas to try if you haven't already done some of those things. I wish I could help more, but that's all I know. GL!

@AlainPannetier yep - I've got [S][C1][C2] set up with C1 being OSX and C2 ubuntu. It even knows to jump straight to C2 when C1 is turned off :)

comment Any way to use Synergy+ and use the mice on *both* computers to travel between screens?
Now I'm all curious if this would work, but I don't have a second mouse laying around to try it...

comment BlackSheep (Firefox add-on) repeatedly asking for my password (MacBook)
Hmm... As I said in the original question, this is running on a MacBook. I don't have any AV software installed. I'm not sure if the Max OSX runs firefox in a sandbox by default, the solution that ended up working for me (see above) might be a clue about why this is happening.

comment Watch movies off external USB blu-ray drive
Thanks for your answers, guys. A little back story: I needed to buy a USB DVD drive, so I wanted to find out if paying the extra to get a Blu-Ray would be worth it. I decided not to.

comment Maximum Number of images
@Any: "what if the object changes" If the object changes, at least 1 pixel would be a different color, which would be a different one of the many possible images.

comment How can I tell if my computer supports dual monitors?
Dual meaning two external monitors or LCD + 1 external monitor? What kind of laptop do you have?
