comment Standing and sitting while using a computer at work
@Mokuabi Who said anything about chairs or doctors? I want to be able to switch between sitting and standing while using my computer (which is common these days, and usually done with specialized hardware designed expressly for that purpose). Specifically, I'm looking for hardware to hold pieces of my computer (monitor, keyboard, mouse) and such hardware has only one purpose in the entire world, holding computer hardware. This question revolves around computers and only computers.

comment Standing and sitting while using a computer at work
Why is this on hold? It's about computer hardware (both "how to ergonomically place my computer I/O devices" and "does hardware exist to allow standing/sitting operation" - though this latter hardware probably doesn't contain a CPU, it still qualifies as computer hardware) and I'm not looking for a specific product recommendation, just a way to handle standing and sitting, given that I can't replace my desk.

comment Distinction between active/inactive windows (titlebars) with Windows 7 Aero
Fine, window chrome color, whatever it's called. But the chrome color does change between when a window is focused and not, but it doesn't change enough to make it distinctive/noticeable. With 2-3 large high-res monitors, it is very easy to lose track of which windows is focused, and having to click on a window every time is time consuming and distracting.

comment Unix Directory Hierarchy Permissions
That's not really fair. Even if the file is hardlinked (and therefore accessible) from somewhere else, you still can't access it from the disallowed path. If the owner of the file hardlinked it from an accessible path, that implies that they understand that now there are two ways of accessing that file.

comment SMTP email in PuTTY
While this answer may contain useful information about how to forward ports with Putty, it really has nothing to do with the original question
