comment My computer raises the ambient room temperature by about 4°F. I don't like it (in the summer)
I think he's hoping that turning off the fans will keep the heat in the box rather than spreading it throughout. :-S strange question, but interesting to think about

comment Hard drive won't initialize, spins up, makes 2 clicks, and spins up again
Drive brand-loyalty is always funny. Personally I won't touch Maxtor after having a half-dozen fail in a month (between me and friends); I've had great luck with WD, a couple have arrived DOA but the ones that have arrived working are still working (knock on wood).

comment Virtual PC versus VirtualBox
All three are fairly comparable. VMWare is nice, but if you're not going to buy it then you might as well use VirtualBox to avoid the hassle of having dodge around paying. VirtualPC is fine, but I've never found a reason to use it over the others.

comment VirtualBox: have higher guest resolution than host resolution
It probably is; it's been possible on real machines for quite a while--but personally I think it's a complete load of crap and a terrible feature. Can I ask why you think it would be so nice?

comment Time Machine clone for Windows?
Acronis really is a pretty solid product and a reasonable price. Macrium Reflect is another in the same vein.

Intrusion via public wifi is probably a considerably lesser concern than sending data unencrypted.
