comment HDMI resolution limited to 1920 x 1080?
ATI cards can generally also run audio from their DVI ports if you use an ATI-specific DVI to HDMI dongle. If your card didn't come with one, they waffle between being slightly difficult to nearly impossible to find. You also have to get the right one for your card series as well (e.g. I know that they changed between the HD 2xxx and HD 3xxx cards.) All that said, thepurplepixel's answer is most correct in that I think you'd need a different video card to do 2560x1600 over HDMI. I'm not immediately aware of any cards that can do that though.

comment Google Chrome: How do I get my status bar back?
Correct: Chrome has never had a permanent status bar. It overlays one when hovering over URLs, but that's it.

comment Does the size of the monitor Matter?
@admintech: That's an unusual call to make without knowing more information about what the screen is being used for. It's not as if 24" LCDs are particularly expensive anymore.

comment How do I fix my recycle bin that doesn't show the deleted items?
@T.J. Crowder: Yes, that's exactly correct. There's items in the Recycle Bin, but when opened, you can't see anything. You can, however, click the restore all items button to put everything back. I have the exact same issue (in Win 7 Pro) on one of my systems at home and would love to know a solution to it.

comment How to make 7-Zip faster
Regarding #2 -- 7-zip does not currently have any sort of "recovery record" or "ecc" ability. You'll need 3rd party software like QuickPar/MultiPar or ICE ECC, but then it's not part of the archive.

comment Any software to do minute-by-minute backup?
The nice thing about HoboCopy is that it can use VSS to copy locked files all by itself. No messing about required. @Earlz: VSS stands for Volume Snapshot Service, not Visual SourceSafe.
