comment Why does the light on the bottom of an optical mouse light up brighter when clicking or scrolling?
its very hard to click a mouse without moving it at all. Which is why many FPS gamers have the fire button on the keyboard.

comment What is the default password of screen?
using a phrase-less ssh key (bad idea btw, look into ssh-agent) isn't the same as having no password. screen will want whatever the users password is on the remote system in /etc/shadow

comment Is USB IrDA adapter enough for a TV-remote to work?
I don't know to be honest, it's longer than the room is big, so it's in the order of many meters. one thing I have found though is that I now own an actual xbox and use an xbox remote with my linux box so I can't use the power button else it turns the xbox on also.
