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.

comment Consolidating network devices to save on power bills
Investing $30 in a Kill-A-Watt and finding out the actual expense would be a good start.

comment Microsoft Discounts for University Alumni?
It's a good idea; I actually already have a TechNet subscription and have considered extending it, but was hoping to get Visual Studio too--then again the VS2010 beta is meeting my needs and I can always fall back to Express if needed.

Yeah, Dreamspark and the Ultimate Steal are the two programs I'd like to get into. Just was hopeful I wouldn't have to take a BS class just to save a couple grand.

The Microsoft legalese requires me to be an active student enrolled in .5 credit hours--if they find out I'm not then they'll bill me the difference. I'm not willing to pay the retail for most of their offered products--I don't think they're worth the asking price.
