comment Does unused thermal paste get old?
yes it's silicone based. I recently used it on a quad core, worked a treat and runs stone cold.

comment Does unused thermal paste get old?
my 2 cents, I once bought a toothpaste sized tube of the stuff not really realising how little i needed, it's lasted years and years and years and still works perfectly. Not even slightly dried out.

comment Can a 2GB DDR2 stick become a 1GB stick?
would seem unlikely, particularly if its even remotely modern. May be the mobo has requirements about slot position or ordering (1 & 3, 2 &4 etc).,

comment What are some options for transfering large files without using the Internet?
does sound like you have a net policy issue, are all these people using the net for work ? Sounds like youd get good milage out of a cheapo home style connection just for downloading files for all of $30 a month.

id advise checking the changelog of the driver update and see if it actually added GFT support.

comment Want to delete revisions from my SVN repository
davr is technically right. What you describe is dumping all revisions except the bad ones, then dumping this on top of the old repo. In my mind that's not really the same thing as 'deleting' a revision.

comment Can I overclock an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250? If so, how?
can you ? yes. should you ? prolly not. laptops are well known for having very complex cooling issues and the extra heat may well push it over the edge. If you try this be sure to keep an eye on the temps of every componant.

comment no internet in browsers after cloning computer's MAC address to router
as layticia says the cloning is done on the wan port not the lan, so no clash occurs.

comment dnsmasq without altering /etc/hosts file manually
accepting this as the answer. It turns out that a) i needed to give the fqdn in the hostname passed to the dhcp server, and b) my test 2 virtual machine clients were clashing mac addresses, which led to some obscure symptoms. Needless to say it wasn't an ideal time for a mac clash when also fighting dynamic dns.
