comment Any way to fix a “dead” pixel in an LCD screen?
That might affect a whole row or column on some simple LCD panels that aren't multiplexed, but I seriously doubt you can do anything at all about a single dead pixel on any LCD or multiple ones on those with a higher-level interface.

comment Changed sudoers file and cant open it anymore; cant open any file using root
I would look for missing # on comments, missing colons, equal signs, line-continuation backslashes, etc.

comment Is there an alternative to the 'insert' key?
@Huppie: I think it's funny the way it is. I'm envisioning someone trying to pop the keycap off and pressing it while it's in the palm of their hand. Hey, it's Friday and I need some amusement, what can I say?

comment How do I use a VGA splitter without the image getting dark?
And, whatever you do, don't daisy chain the splitters. You could burn something out with more than two monitors.

+1 for the PVC. Fusion is a spray paint by Krylon that is made especially for plastic. It's available in a number of colors or can be used as a primer for regular spray paint (which would usually flake off eventually if used by itself). If you can find the right tool for the job, you could cut a slot down the full length of the pipe that would make cable installation and removal easier under some circumstances (such as cables with large connectors).

comment To make a table of contents for many .odt -files
You might try to see if making your headings using a filename field would work. See Chapter 14 - Working with Fields: documentation.openoffice.org/manuals/userguide3/…
