comment Can I make a shortcut to Send Outlook Email from Template?
Well, like I said above, I prefer having a button to appear on the bar because it just feels more natural, but your way is much, much better - Especially perfect for multiple templates. Thanks!

This is great - I love having "in-app" methods to do things - feels less like it's a "hack". I'll try this out and let you know how it goes in O2010!

comment Can I make a video not downloadable?
@MaciejPiechotka completely makes sense. I guess what I just can't wrap my head around is the fact that with higher-bit encryption, there is no (feasible) way to break, say, a banking transaction. Why is this not true for DRM? Is it solely because the end user that must provide an authentication also has the malicious intent of re-appropriating the content? I would imagine that cryptanalysis would have studied multiparty key distribution by now. Is that a thing? Thank you for your responses guys

Just playing devil's advocate here: Hardware decoder and encrypted file - does this not work? Pay for the decoder, distribute encoded files. You'd basically have to reroute the decoders output, which, I believe, would fall under HARD DOWNLOADABLE

comment Linux VM in Windows 8
hahaha damn you! ...telling me about VMWare - it looks really slick. I suppose for my relatively simple purposes, VirtualBox is more than sufficient, but now I am trying to justify $250 on VMWare to myself hahaha thank you for your answer!

comment Linux VM in Windows 8
I understand completely, and that was one of my concerns about running a straight VM - Unity in Ubuntu as it is is quite laggy, despite my having a more than decent computer (i5-2500K, 8GB RAM, SSD, 660Ti). I didn't want to make it any worse by adding VM overhead, which is why i asked this question. Thanks for your answer!

comment Linux VM in Windows 8
I actually like this answer the most for the detailed options within VMs, and I will most likely use your suggestions. However, the other answer directly touched on the physical OS + VM combo aspect. I can see how #4 is the best option (leveraging the power of linux without GUI bloat), but in addition to the fact that I am actually testing GUIs, I also just find GUIs easier to deal with :/ So I will probably try #3, keeping your caveats in mind. Thanks!

comment Linux VM in Windows 8
Excellent. Thank you very much for the information. I'll try to get this working next weekend. And as much as I understand the power of linux, using it at work and school, I actually really like W8 (contrary to popular opinion i know haha). I THINK the raw access shouldn't be an issue as my configuration is a dual physical boot, with each OS given its own SSD and a common data drive, but that is also partitioned for the two OSes. Can you clarify if that would be safe? Or are you saying paging/etc might silently screw it over?

comment Is my Linux machine running low of RAM?
what are you trying to say? it claims you have abt 120 MB free physical memory and 150 swap. Is that low for you? If you are about to start up a text editor, that's plenty. If you want another instance of the java program you're running, not enough at all

comment Does “SandBoxie” slow down the system?
I had no idea sandboxie had a purpose other than for surfing suspicious websites...
