comment Windows 7 or 8 when replacing XP
@NeilTownsend - XP support is good till April 2014, so I'd recommend just saving your pennies till then. Put aside the price of a windows license now to start, and hopefully by then you'll have enough for a new (low-end) laptop.

comment Windows 7 or 8 when replacing XP
Are you in a position where you can just replace the machine? I wouldn't go taking large bets on the longevity of a 6 year old HD, even if you don't use it much.

comment does encryption and disk wiping, using gutmann or dod, produce the same measure of entropy?
@john - you can claim whatever you like. The question is, who do you claim it to? And how will the claim benefit you? What will that let you get away with, or preserve? They'll never believe you don't know about encryption at all. Unless you manage to wipe everything else, they'll know you at least have Truecrypt, so you can't pretend total ignorance. The best you can do is have more plausibility in refusing to give up the keys (Honest, Judge, I wiped it - there is no key to give up!). And then they've got a big chunk of circumstantial evidence that you were up to whatever they say you were.

comment Does Dropbox sync when computer is asleep or locked?
@CorySimmons - The only question is the definition of lock and sleep - They should be pretty universal terms, but I find that when I make too many assumptions, the universe tends to smack me in the head.
