comment How to properly image a truecrypt system partition?
I was able to get a truecrypted disk-to-disk copy working using Parted Magic. The Clonezilla options I used were -e2, -j2, -ql and Use Partition Table. Afterwards I had to use the Truecrypt rescue disc to restore both the boot loader AND key data. It took over 15 (!) hours to clone a 160 GB drive. I suspect that if I'd had a 500 GB drive, it would have been much, much faster to just reinstall Windows and all my software.

comment How can I increase the size of the pinned jump list in Windows 7?
Actually JumpList Launcher seems to work after all, and even better than advertised. Run JumpList Launcher. Increase the "Max. Jumplist-Items". Hit Save. Reboot your computer. Now ALL pinned lists (not just those in JumpList Launcher) have that new size. Including the start menu, which looks a little weird when it's super tall, but whatever. Good enough.

Jumplist Launcher looked intriguing but unfortunately it too seems to be subject to the mysterious 18 item limit. There's an option to change the maximum jumplist size, but, at least on my Win7 box, it doesn't work.

I was hoping to get rid of that message completely, but I guess this solution is good enough.

comment Turn off transparency for Windows 7 taskbar only
It's not the wallpaper that's the problem for me, it's when I drag a window with a white background partially below the taskbar. This seems to be something I do with great frequency, for some reason. Since windows are on top of the wallpaper, changing the wallpaper wouldn't help. ZoneTick clock is an interesting suggestion, though naturally I prefer a solution that's free.
