comment Are video card resolution specs per-display or overall total when using multiple displays?
up to a total the max speced res of the card on each port or up to a total where the overall rendered area is less than the total max spec?

Your anecdotal evidence is exactly the opposite of what I'm asking. I have one GFX adapter, and in fact a typical way of using the DVI ports on these sorts of cards is in a dual-link configuration.

comment How can I use the RDP client when logged in as Guest
@JackDouglas If all you're doing is RDP, why not setup a Linux image that boots straight to an RDP client? (Caveat: I use RDP all the time, but only for very specialty purposes and don't know if the Linux clients hold up in production.)

You just installed Vista? I'm sorry. 7 really is a lot better. It's at least a proper implementation of what they started to throw together in Vista. I can't say I'm a fan of 8, but Vista is the new Me.

comment Enable multiple users to install software using homebrew
This is specifically not advisable. The Homebrew FAQ strongly recomends NOT installing packages as root, and for good reason.

comment Dropbox eats my files! Random deletes from Mac client
@samir105 I wouldn't know ;-) I don't work at Dropbox and I am no longer even using the product. This and other things went unfixed too long and I jumped ship. Feel free to bug Dropbox Inc. about this and point them to this question. It's had almost 6K views now and it has been 3 years since I reported this to Dropbox tech support. Last I checked it was still broken and eating files. Meanwhile might I recommend ownCloud? It handles this problem gracefully.
