comment How far will you get with an 'rm -rf /' command?
I tried rm -f /bin/rm once. Unfortunately, it worked, and I spent the next hour getting the right version of rm back from GNU coreutils.

@Moab MAC = Media Access Control, Mac = Macintosh Computer (I know I'm anal about it, but it really irks me).

comment Middle click in Windows 7 on a Macbook Pro
Somebody's awfully negative! Also, is this a Unibody, or does it have a physical click button?

comment Leaving your WiFi public?
@mkoistinen I know; it's not an answer to the question, that's why it's a comment. There's no need to freak out. All I am trying to point out is that, regardless of whether the AP is open or secured, it's best to use SSL/TLS wherever possible. That's why I left the note in parentheses at the end of my comment; I agree with your answer. :)

comment Leaving your WiFi public?
Just a side note: Yes, it's trivial to hijack somebody's Facebook account if you're on the same LAN, but only if you're not using SSL. Facebook.com -> Account Settings -> Account Security -> Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) whenever possible. That is the key to not having your Facebook account hijacked, regardless of whether or not you are on an open access point. (Otherwise, I totally agree with your answer!).

comment Is a static IP required for a Cisco 7000 series VoIP phone?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic. I wish that questions about VoIP phones were on-topic here (as I've got a bunch), but they're not. You can see my question and the answers over on meta asking if there's a place for these questions. Hopefully, there will be a place for these questions soon.

comment Small, Empty Partition
@Maxpm I'd say so. Besides, you've got tons of other space; no need to cause potential problems. (Also worth noting is that the recovery image in the second partition is most likely useless without the first partition).
