comment Charging/syncing 3rd generation iPod on Windows 7
iPods haven't used firewire for several generations at this point. Unless you bought a VERY old, used one you couldn't possibly have one that needed that.

comment How to use mineral oil cooling safely?
You'd also have evaporation issues, I'd think. I imagine that working with a deionized water system would sort of require easy access to de-ionized water for flushing, topping off, etc, etc. so it's probably not the best plan for a hobbyist.

comment Best way to get data off a computer with no support for USB or Ethernet?
I'd go with being paranoid & finding either a blank CD, or a bootable linux CD (so you can use USB devices). Older systems like this can be quick fragile, and I'd want the best backup I could get before I started taking parts out.

comment how to check if email address does exist?
With vrfy, you connect to a mail server, then vrfy username (the part before the @ in the e-mail address). If it's working, it will tell you yes or no whether the user is real. If it's not working (many are not) then it will either say 'forbidden', or 'I have no idea'. Note that the 'I have no idea' answer is perfectly legitimate for a mail forwarding host that doesn't have access to the underly account list. So even when working, vrfy may not be that useful.

comment Record the last three hours of video with a webcam?
This sounds like something that would come up in the security field. I've never seen it for general use, but I could imagine that something similar (though with longer times) would be perfect for store security cameras, for instance.

comment I'm looking for a PDF reader that works in asymmetric dual monitors
What version of Adobe Reader? Perhaps it's the larger difference between monitors that you have, but on my system Adobe Reader 8 does just fine on either monitor.
