comment Windows 8: Password is never accepted on first attempt
I'm not sure about 8 Pro, but on Server 2012 (which is a very similar UI afaik) once you start typing a password, there's a cryptic symbol at the right of the input field. It's actually supposed to be an eye; if you click and hold it, it unmasks the password so you can actually see what was typed. If there's any issue with the keyboard layout, caps lock, or whatever else has been suggested above, this'll make it obvious.

comment Are all Socket F Opteron processors interchangeable (within TDP limits)?
Thanks for the early warning! :) That made me dig further and it seems from this and this that it definitely won't work on HP's BIOS. I've heard of people using CoreBoot (open-source BIOS) on these systems with some success. With enough effort that might work but it's not worth the trouble when I've got faster systems in the farm anyway. Octane is interesting; if only it could do Vue EcoSystems...

comment How can zero byte files generate a hash value?
The hash algorithms have a predetermined initial condition - kind of like a number which they start with and mutate as they read in data. If there's no data to read, the hash is just a result of that preset initial condition.

comment Option to use URL filename when saving pages in Opera?
@Dave Rook thanks for the tip. Interesting extension. Couldn't get it working (even after adding the MIME type) but I'm not sure it changes the save file name anyway. Searching "save" in Extensions doesn't show anything else of interest.
