comment Is there still a reason to choose a 10,000 RPM hard drive over an SSD?
@littleScala Yes - 25 full writes a day. I think you'll find that A Paging file being replaced many thousands of times a day is the completely meaningless statistic. Once those blocks "wear through" (some time before 100%), then the paging file will get moved to the over-provisioned sections. Once those are used, then it will swap with the least used sections of disk. The fastest way to wear out an SSD is by writing start to finish of disk repetitively. I believe for consumer (Intel) disks that's constant writing for decades (a few years ago), and presumably much higher for enterprise.

comment How to save Word documents as HTML to be viewed in Firefox
What version of Word did you have? I've looked at 2003 up and they all seem to have "Rely on VML..." unchecked by default.

This seems to be affecting us in IE9, but fine in IE8, which roughly fits the timeline for this question (IE9 released 14 Mar 2011)

comment How do I mirror a monitor in Windows Vista?
It definitely did not work on Vista. I had to get to the graphics driver control panel to enable this. Only the "extend the dosktop..." option existed.
