I'm an electrical engineer currently working as a software engineer and developer. Prior to that, I was a computer tech for 6 months at a independently owned computer store while I looked for an actual engineering job.

I'm a big gamer, with a lot of it taking place on the PC, but I also own a 360 and PS3.

comment Laptop Keyboard Water Damage
If it's still scrolling left with the key disabled, then it's probably not the keyboard.

comment How do I type the infinity character in a web browser?
Chrome seems to be the only app that treats this right on my computer. Everywhere else, I get ▲.

comment Any change to my hard disk is ignored after shut down
I'm going to agree with @DanielRHicks. Did the laptop come with an SSD, or did you install that afterwards? I would check that your drivers are up to date (especially if you installed the SSD yourself or reloaded the OS) and ensure that you're shutting your machine down properly.

@David: Yes, I believe I said that in the question. Youtube TV with Firefox works fine.

comment Windows system drive letter changed after repair install
@tafer: I know this is late to the party, but performing a repair install should fix that.

comment Java -version reporting wrong version on Mac OSX Mountain Lion
run which java from terminal. It'll tell you where the system is running the executable. For instance, on the linux machine in front of me, it says it's /usr/bin/java, and the ll /usr/bin/java says that it's a sym link to the actual install.

comment Java -version reporting wrong version on Mac OSX Mountain Lion
Did you reboot after installing 7up7? I don't know exactly how it works on Mac, but if it's anything like linux, it'll go through your path (environment variable) looking for the java executable. Sometimes java will explicitly put the directory into the path on installation, other times it'll just assume the place it's installing to is on the path.
