comment Can I automatically map chrome's bookmarks bar to its jump list?
I'm sorry, I checked this out, but I already know that even without it, I could manually pin pages to the jump list, and I've even checked out the chrome bookmarks file, which is rendered in XML. But I don't want to do this manually, and I was wondering if there's a program to add the contents of the XML bookmarks file to the jump list, not so much add new jump-list activities corresponding to hotkeys or command line arguments. This is cool, but it's not what I want.

These are probably poor solutions. I tried to find a way to encrypt git pulls, but was unable to find anything but encrypting git pushes. That would probably be the simplest solution, encrypting the pulls with the git user password, but it's beyond my knowledge.

Perhaps the network solution then is the less complicated. I'm not sure if there's software to allow cross-platform user account sharing, but here are links to documentation on setting up network accounts, so you can keep them all on 2 computers as login servers support.apple.com/kb/HT5338 microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/… Or use faronics.com/products/deep-freeze/enterprise to automatically wipe changes to disks after students finish using the computer

To say, just because it may be used illegitimately doesn't mean it should be prevented outright.

comment Saving program state
This is cool. I am learning from this as a thought experiment alone. However, to accept the answer, I'd like a program which does this. I know I could do it with a virtual machine, but I'd like to avoid the overhead, the extra steps required, and the inflexibility of not being able to do it at a whim to any specific program.

Torrents absolutely have legitimate uses, which is doubtless why they're still around. Being that I didn't even think of illegitimate uses for this, I think it's a non-issue. It's not like there aren't already ways to pirate software. Shareware/schmareware, you can't already pirate multi-thousand dollar software if you wanna risk your ass in court.

comment Very Hot P4 3.4 GHz
1. You shouldn't need to ramp up the fan manually 2. I assumed you'd been running this system for years prior without this issue. Is this not the case? Is it a fresh build? That changes things slightly because it makes it more likely to be a misapplication of heatsink or thermal paste. I once didn't clamp down the heatsink enough and got a screaming "EEEEEEEET" from an angry, hot CPU undergoing thermal shutdown. Don't do this.

comment How can I kill / murder / fully disable StickyKeys?
Clippy. Don't forget about your faithful, bendy, little friend. Though sticky keys (or whichever shortcut is activated by holding shift) gets me EVERY time I reinstall Windows and hesitate on the shift key while thinking about my next action.
