comment Can no longer reach DHCP server
A common method for cable modem providers to issue IP addresses is based on the MAC of the computer. (@home used the computer name) A modem will retain that MAC information for as long as it remains powered on. Thus, whenever you switch what you hook up tot he cable modem, it will need to be reset.

An IR or low light camera with an IR emitter or small light source would accommodate the accursed fridge light.

comment Why is my PC freezing in 3D games?
If you have an external drive, you may as well eliminate EVERY software issue. Use clonezilla or similar to take an image of your current system, then wipe it clean and start fresh. If the problem remains, then all that is left is hardware. Adding as a comment since this is just a workaround and not a real fix or answer.

comment Charity membership drive – using a laptop as a signup form
Just a tip - use an external keyboard/mouse instead of the laptop one. It is extra stuff to haul, but they will hold up better to abuse than the built in ones.

comment Clear private data in Internet Explorer 6
-1 saying you must used a 3rd party tool. While not always user friendly, the ability has existed natively well before IE6. The question implies looking for a native solution. Also the opinion on IE6 doesn't help.
