comment Relocating Torrent Files and Downloads
Apparently, the "Advanced" options don't exist in the Mac version. Oh well, I'll accept this answer when they add it in.

comment why is there no ad hoc or computer-to-computer option in my windows 7?
If you have neither Bluetooth nor Wi-Fi, how do you plan to share the connection?

@gbro A bit late, but I finally got around to messing with the BIOS, and it fixed it. If you want to post your comment as an answer, I'll accept it.

@gbroiles Nothing comes up. Motherboards typically do come with Ethernet cards, right?

comment Disable word completion dialog when pressing escape in Safari
Do you have any extensions enabled? I'm running Safari 5.0 (6533.16) for Mac OS X 10.6, following your steps precisely, and I'm exiting the search rather than getting spell-check.

comment 403 Forbidden Error on Mac OS X Localhost
Sorry, just to double check, I should be visiting localhost/~myusername/index.html and have a file called index.html in my Sites folder, right? If so, then the 403 is still happening.

comment How to force Mac to into dirty shutdown state on every power off?
@ghostsource Right. Do both the "Start Up or Wake" and the "Start up automatically after a power failure". The first setting boots the computer up for a proper shutdown and the second boots it up in case of ungraceful shutdown.

comment How to force Mac to into dirty shutdown state on every power off?
@ghostsource What if you also check "Start up automatically after a power failure"? Doesn't that cover all methods of shutdown?

Option + Cmd + Space opens a new search window in Finder... or you could just use Cmd + N to open a new window.

comment List of Applications on Mac OS X
Thanks. I was just wondering since Apple's "Archive and Install" upgrade feature only retains Apple-approved applications, so I wasn't sure if I could get a list or not.

comment How can I download a fresh copy of Windows 7 Premium, if I bought a license with my computer?
Did you check the stuff that Dell sends you with the computer? Usually they provide a re-install disk.
