comment Local DNS resolution really slow on Mac OS X
The trace is interesting, but I suspect you might see more useful info if you try running tcpdump -n port 53. You'll probably need to add a -i interface name also.

Ah, well there is always the nuclear option. Backup you bookmarks, delete the places database and restore.

comment Running chkdsk on a disk partition without a drive letter
Why can't you just assign a drive letter to it?

comment Start script on logon
@LaurAliste, please precisely define login. What commands exactly need to be ran? Is this for mounting filesystems or something? If you need something to be used be ran for every 'login' irrespective, of what shell or program is actually performing the login, then you need to look at doing something with PAM.

comment Group Policy: Block access to \\localhost\C$
By default only users in the local Administrators group can access the dollar sign shares. If users can access these shares, then you have granted more permissions the user then they should have somewhere. Fix the permissions problem.

comment Migrating RAID-0 array from internal to dedicated controller
You make a backup, and then you restore the backup. If you are running RAID0, you better already have a great backup system in place.

comment Automatically reconnect to VPN when it drops
Connect the VPN, then temporarily pull your network cable out?

comment Automatically reconnect to VPN when it drops
@Jikag, the question is vague, but I am choosing to interpret this statement as the main question. I'd like it to attempt to reconnect automatically with no intervention from me. AFAIK, re-connections cannot happen without cached credentials.

What VNC server? AFAIK there are at least 3 different VNC servers in the repository.

comment Other than home/end, are there standard keyboard shortcuts to go to the begin/end of a line of text in Windows apps?
If it isn't a laptop, then you could simply replace your keyboard. Almost any standard USB keyboard will work fine with an iMac, Mac mini, or Mac Pro.

comment How can I join non-consecutive partitions on internal hard disk?
You cannot. Space must be consecutive. I think some tools will allow you to relocate your other partition towards the end of the drive?

Ugh, that is ancient. You need 5.4 for netcat mode (-W)

comment Screen ssh tunnel doesn't seem to work
Any idea what version of SSH is on the client and intermediate box? If they are both recent enough there is another alternative.

comment Screen ssh tunnel doesn't seem to work
Not sure what you are trying to do here. If you are just trying to tunnel through an intermeditate box, then why not simply setup a config file and the ProxyCommand option?

comment Does a hard drive degrade if we always write to the same directory?
@ChrisNava, Which is what it seemed to me this question is about. In a directory that was being very frequently modified, the blocks holding the directory structure would be frequently re-written, more then the area where files are being stored. If there was some kind of wearing out of drive media it seems to me that the blocks used to store the directory/filesystem meta-data would be the first to go.

comment Cannot create a partition because of out-of-space message
If you are willing to delete things, then you should be able to delete the D: drive, and the extended partition. Then you could extend your C: drive, or re-create your D: drive using all the space. Make a good backup first though, just to be safe.
