comment CSMA between APs in same channel & different SSID?
This answer is wrong on so many levels, I do not even know where to start. So, starting from the beginning: an AP will not see another AP as interference if they are near enough, since it can read the packet headers (and has to, else it cannot know they are for the other AP!). "They figure it out" is hopelessly vague. I do not believe anyone uses the frequency-hopping from the original 802.11 standard anymore. And the MAC layer is shared between all the stations (AP or not), after all it is its purpose to negotiate access to the media (MAC = Media Access Control).

@John T: not if you temporarily allow Javascript on a page. When you do that, Flashblock takes over.

comment Copying to MicroSD card from Ubuntu 9.04 Is slow
This is completely wrong. First, when using a USB reader (which is the case here), Linux is not talking the SD protocol, but the "USB storage" protocol, which is publicly documented (it is the card reader itself which implements the SD protocol). Second, the necessary documentation has been out for years (check commit 335eadf on the Linux kernel - it is from 2005).

comment Burnt SATA Drive
There are parts of the drive's electronics which are not in the PCB (the motors, the head, and often a small chip near the head). If any of these has burned, replacing the PCB will not be enough.
