I would be rather reluctant to use a cooler of that size with an i7 without a fan somewhere providing a good air-flow. Thanks for the link though..

comment Is a laptop computer going to save its extra cost compared to a desktop computer due to lower electricity consumption, after more than one year?
If a laptop is plugged in, most of the power saving functions (esp. CPU throttling and display dimming) tend to be disabled anyway. I suspect laptops might actually have [i]worse[/i] power consumption in some cases, as they are often not to be designed for high-performance efficiency.

comment Why dont Macs have hard drive activity lights?
I suspect hard drives having LEDs was mainly for consistency with floppy drives, rather than any actual functional purpose. Modern OSs read/write all the time, so they are not any more functional than power lights..

comment Wirelessly Linking Buildings 1,000 ft Apart
Does the 802.11 spec even allow for that sort of propagation distance? I'm pretty certain the relevant component of the IFS only allows for circa 300meters..

Firefox has a safe-mode which allows you to disable troublesome extensions. How to run it depends in your platform though..
