comment I copied a Windows VM from Mac VMWare to Windows VMWare Player. It runs, but very slowly
I installed a Ubuntu 10.10 under VMWare player on that machine and it's very fast. The machine (which has 48 GB of Memory and 12 hyperthreaded cores) barely cracks 5% CPU usage and 5GB of memory use, so I'm not hitting on machine limits.) I'll check to see if there's a "snapshot"...I presume that would be a file in the directory that contains the files which comprise the VM?

comment Does e-mail address obfuscation actually work?
If you've ever read the RFC (rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc2606.txt) you'd know that "example.com" (and .net and .org) are officially reserved domain names. But using a "fake" domain name that's not officially reserved is not nice to the proper domain holder (if any). There's no pantsexample.com currently registered, but there could have been.

This is not very friendly to the legitimate owners of "pantsexample.com"

comment What are the Windows A: and B: drives used for?
I need it for some old MIDI drum-machines and sequencers that have floppy drives, but otherwise still work well.

Hey! I have floppies! And I'm not "nobody". But nobody who doesn't deal with legacy/antique equipment has floppies...
