comment How do I turn off Modern UI and get the old Start Menu back in Windows 8?
One use for this is for computers with internet monitoring software that hasn't been updated for Win8 yet. Most of those were written with LSPs, which don't see the network traffic from the Metro version of Internet Explorer.

comment How can I gently explain to non-techie friends they are the victim of a hoax?
I agree with this advice, but be prepared for your well-meaning friend or relative to get pissed off. My experience is that people find this kind of correction embarrassing, and they will not thank you for it. (And make sure your "reply all" list doesn't include any business associates of the person you're correcting, because it's not OK to embarrass them in front of their colleagues -- let them make those corrections personally.)

comment Adobe Reader: remember password for a PDF file
Admittedly, I invented a hypothetical situation here. I figured that since you were storing the passwords outside of Adobe that they might get lost someday.
